  • A secret life of walter mitty with a silly twist.

    I dunno which was worse, the ridiculous way some janitor is some sort of important "euro trash" or the laughable way the characters back off like mannequins and the lack of facial expressions to match it.

    Plus the person dreaming these scenes, is he stupid or something, why keep bringing this woman back who knows everything is a fake and tells the others to wake up?

    This whole episode is just really poor and not scary at all, hell the 'surprise twist' in the end just made it not only confusing but a hassle as in "great it just starts all over again like some bad dream".moreless
  • A group of people become stuck in somebody's dreams and can't get out

    I didn't like this episode, mainly because it is a little confusing, but not too much not to understand. The premise is weird when you think about it, people for no real reason being stuck in somebody's dreams. It is not a scary episode, but I guess the scary thing would be not being able to escape a person's dream as long as they wanted you in it. Anyway, the main character tries to figure out how to get out, but ultimately gets her no where. Overall, an average episode with a weird story. I guess it is better than some, but still not that good.moreless
  • All this wasn't one of most the scariest episodes, it did have a very creepy premise to it. A young woman working for the theatre, bosses her stagehand Otto a little too far, and soon realizes what he's really capable of, when she becomes trapped in his dmoreless

    Very creepy episode, but too entirely scary, a young woman gets her last desserts when she pushes her stagehand too far, and ends up in his dream. This realizes that Otto is in control and that she and her friends are puppets in what appears to be a expression of his fantasy. The soon knows that when Otto goes to sleep, she and her co workers have a chance to escape from his dream. The transition scene where they go from from his personal actors back to regular people was pretty scary, overall a pretty well written episode.moreless
