Storyline

The teenager Shelby Johnson is the daughter of Officer Dan Johnson and best friend of her schoolmate Becca. Halloween night, Becca proposes to Shelby to build a ouija board and do a séance. Their former friend Emily D'Angelo, who committed suicide in a lake, makes contact and she tells that she was murdered but does not give the name of the killer. The two girls investigate the case leaving Shelby's father Officer Dan Johnson upset. Soon they find a suspect and Shelby has a great surprise. "The Spirit Box" is maybe the best episode so far of Fear Itself, with a cast with Martin Donovan, Anna Kendrick and Mark Pellegrino. The creepy and tense story has a surprising plot point and a good conclusion. My vote is seven. Title (Brazil): "The Spirit Box" Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Wow! This episode has stupidity written all over it. And GROSS!!!! If our kids are this naive then we as a society are screwed. The writing is poor and typical in a horror series. Not even going to finish it. Well, on to find another series to attempt. Sad sad
