  • What Do You Want?

    9.7
    A standard "haunted house" story is given an original and terrifying twist by writers Glen Morgan and James Wong, memorable for their work on The X-Files and Millennium.



    The Ones That Lie in Wait sees the group being stalked one-by-one on a stormy night by Rabisu, an ancient demon, who plays mind games with them and continually asks them all one simple question, "what do you want?"



    Kristen Cloke is absolutely terrifying as Rabisu and she breathes life and, uh, creepiness into a role which could have been boring. Her sudden appearances and her constant asking of the question "what do you want?" are always unsettling and make for one of the most memorable episodes from the series.



    This could have easily been a standard, boring bottle episode of the show but the stalking of the regulars, the eeriness of the storm and Morgan and Wong's determination to not rely on the cliché helps The Ones That Lie in Wait greatly.



    A tense and sinister hour with a memorable bad guy (who was brought back in the series finale) and some excellent direction by Thomas J Wright.moreless
