Both this and the prior episode can be considered departures from the usual tone and tenor of the series. There is a supernatural, extra-terrestrial and menacing aspect to this installment, however, there is also quite a bit of comedy to as well.
Thus, this episode and Game Over being dropped down consecutively in season one feels a bit odd. However, aside for the two Young Artist Award nominations and one win that this episode garnered there is a bit going for it that makes it somewhat more enjoyable than the last.
Commentary Aside from an early low-angle the first attempt at something non-vanilla in this episode is about 6 minutes in where the secret of the tale is being divulged. From that point forward things start to get decidedly less flat, more graded and cinematic as the story goes beyond the ordinary. Green light in night shot, singles become slightly more angled up-shots and down-shotsunderlit school at night, red gels and the like become the norm rather than the exception.
He is a renowned psychiatrist, who struck an unusual deal to be able to physically trap the fears that haunt his patients.
All hell breaks loose when the fears get out. Focus filters seem to be played with a bit too, but to accentuate something very specific as opposed to some shows that just use it as a texturing device. Tracks and swish-pans abound as they run around fearfully. Many tight angles, along with the situation make this an effective chamber-horror tale despite the fact that the house is massive it feels like it closes in.
The tragically flawed role model makes for a more interesting tale, as does the open end. Fido being among them. Here a boy who desperately wants a dog, but is not allowed one by his mother; has a zombie as a pet. Commentary The tying in of several threads help this episode: The set-up in the episode includes a long take walking down a school hallway.
The visuals are spiced up further in a later fantasy sequence, by use of a filter, fog, in-frame depth and tracking shots. Similar to a pattern already seen once this tale leaves the school the style of the episode unfurls itself. There is the use of a symbol, which the protagonist decodes and adds an exclamation point to the ending, which an invitation to visual literacy.
Three kids break into an old house full of mysterious artifacts. Most intriguing among them is a black mask that they believe is giving them glimpses of the past, but a past that they can change.
They then set out to try and do just that. Commentary The first episode to go title sequence first and not have a teaser lead-in to it, this helps to establish a greater immediacy and legitimacy to the narrative. Start with a jib over a for sale sign to establish the central location of the story.
Madeline Carroll | The Movie Rat
Many things stand out visually in this episode: Eyeball-shaped orange vistas through the mask on black backdrop with a sort of 16 fps flicker to them; the canted steedicam shot with slightly up-glancing angles to start; flashlights; diffused sunlight through dank, dark basement. The cutting pace near the end is exceptional as is the sense of false victory leading to the chilling conclusion.
However, I can appreciate their treatment in the horror genre, especially taking into account how it is likely to affect those who are afraid. Not to mention the fact that this episode in particular has a very unique take on clowns one that can be described as treating them like a species. Commentary Wobbly POV tracks to start the episode.
As with many tales about clowns in horror: The spin on clowns here is quite an interesting one and quite different. A scene where our lead is followed by a car finishes with a great punch after being constructed by smooth camerawork.
All horror can be boiled down into two categories: Many canted and slightly moving shots when our lead goes to the circus and is confronted by clowns non-stop. Shots in the box with the spinning lights is style in spades. Usually what is going to be a focus is that one sibling notices a change in the other that their parents are oblivious too. Here Alice Jodelle Ferland has returned from boarding school and Pete Uriah Shelton starts to suspect that she is a witch dabbling in black magic.
However, here it is the misunderstanding, and lack of communication, that leads to tragic circumstances. Commentary Sibling rivalry, and differences between sexes, obfuscate realities here. Night falls three minutes in and shots gain contrast, look up, fog abounds outside.
Discussion of next day: Another situation with a symbol; at first misinterpreted. Conflict rises and hits a volatile, game-chaging midpoint where the characters part and understanding becomes impossible, then one tragic turn compounds itself atop another, then another. Situation heavily overrides affectations and surprising visual turns abound because of it.
A better effect than most episodes were afforded. Two other notes is that naming the cat Baba Yaga, is a much more effective use of folklore. Also, scouting versus witchcraft, plus the inclusion of the grimoire, add to a textured narrative of accepted fraternity. Sarah is good at her core but has built a coarse uncaring exterior to survive and fit in.
In a classical horror trope they cross the wrong woman, an old gypsy, and start to face severe consequences following her demise. The use of text-message-subtitles is also a nice touch. Wonderful shot to sell initial effect scene.
Effective use of diffused light down hallway on next pivotal scenes.
Cell phones come in to play more as the episode progresses to great effect. A strand of lights adorning the wall a simple art direction choice that adds texture. When the Bakers are invited to the Loskis' for dinner, Juli confronts Bryce about what he said. During dinner, they sit opposite each other; she doesn't talk to Bryce or make eye contact with him. After dinner, she apologizes for her behavior.
