creepy face
28 May 2010 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

The director from Cabin Fever 2 en I sell The Dead amongst other movies brings us at last an episode that could concur with Masters of Horror. It contains everything, from suspense to excellent effects. Again, but by now we know it that gore and blood is left out of Fear Itself but still, there is blood in it, the killings are off camera but it is the face of the killer that makes the episode. A bit like The Man Who Laughs with Lon Chaney from 1926. Same face, for me...Anyway, it's better than Cabin fever 2 although the lack of gore. But the creepy face will get you, especially when he lays in bed. Also the ending has a real ending and not the ending like other episodes. A great performance by Doug Jones, the man we know from Pan's Labyrinth and of course Hellboy. This is a keeper from the series, at last one to remember.
