  1. I really enjoyed this episode. as far as Black Mass goes it is hit or miss, but this one struck something in me. I’ve never been a fan of James’s stories, but this one gave me a chill. I mean who hasn’t had a regret or wondered where they would’ve been if they made a different decision? That is a real horror in itself….or maybe I am just being too philosophical for my own good?

    • I don’t think you’re being too philosophical – I think you’re right. The more we can relate to these stories, the scarier they are.
