  • Evil creature comes back from the mud to kill.

    Creepy, that one word describes this episode completely. From the sensation of loneliness we get from seeing Aunt Neva and the boy in the middle of a dusty road going to what it seems nowhere, to an ending that will make you chill your blood.

    Loved this episode the first time I watched it and loved it even more the second time. The idea of an evil being coming back from a long and deep snooze is not new. A recent similitude can be found in Jeepers Creepers in which an evil creature hunts for human flesh after a long sleep.

    The kind of episode I love.
