  • Wow!!

    Turn off the lights turn it up loud and watch this one alone.... You will get chills! The best of the series I've watched in order so far! Probably number one!
  • A boy learns from his great grandmother, unbeknownst to her, about a creature who comes on All Hallwos Eve.

    Jamie, a precocious kid, hears his dying talk about the Cutty Black Sow. The great-grandmother was recorded somehow, which helped Jamie make the right steps to ensure his family's safety from the Cutty Black Sow. The tone of the episode was excellent for this story which displayed the fear Jamie had about the creature while trying to have it all together to protect his family. Damn shame what happened to him. Great stroy.
  • Beware the sow!

    This is a very interesting episode about Scottish folklore, one of my favorite episodes. This is one of those episodes that feature kids who are too smart for their own good. The boy was very intelligent for his age and wrote in better cursive than I ever could, and he looks like he’s only 8 years old at the oldest! The monster itself was interesting; its main feature is that it has yellow eyes. The story is well written and keeps the interest, so it isn’t boring. The mood and tone of the entire episode is set up really well to be creepy. It\'s worth seeing.
