  • A man goes to a cheap circus seeking the best magician since Houdini. Let's just say, by the end, the fan is floating on cloud nine, ten, twenty...

    This episode isn't scary, but the way the story is told makes it creepy. Not because of the monsters on the episode, because none are to be found, but because of the imagination and thought of what it would be like if I were that kid that keeps bugging the magician. He gets more than a magic trick, and believe me, he wishes that he kept his mouth shut by the end. How do you explain to the police what happened to this guy at the end of the episode? I don't think you can, lol. But, this is a cool episode.
