This series of SupernaturalÂ is full of in-references that got pulled to the limit yesterday. Early episodes has Linda Blair and Amber Benson in them and last night’s episode, I suspect, was about the making of horror films and tv, especially the schlockier sort. Apart from name checks for films such as Fear DotCom, it also worked on the idea of the setsÂ ofÂ horror movies being haunted (Poltergeist is mentioned and I think Exorcist was also rumoured to be possessed) with the twist being that the chants mentioned were the real summoning chants (and you can work out how well that’s going to end of the writer!). McG, the executive producer, also keeps getting namechecked.
A slight goof off episode but a fun respite in a series that has so far built up a serious head of steam.
