    I’m loving this series!

    I think in many ways, this is far more unsettling than a horror flick. The silence between the spoken words, intensifies the dramatic effect.

    Anyhow, my one question is this… why would the spirits who later advise him as to a way to avoid his eternal fate (as prescribed in the story) initially push him towards it? Wouldn’t they more likely have said “Don’t Kill” or something? Obviously they could have been doing that at the woman’s request.

    I’m looking forward to more OTR episodes!
