This week's unsub was one sick loon. I love it when my show draws on classic horror movies. Now, I know critics have complained that the show is becoming a little too twisted, but there are times that it really works. And honestly, when a show starts out being called 'gruesome' in season one for pretty tame stuff (by season four standards), where else can you go but darker and darker? Paradise, while not as shiny, creep-factor-wise, as episodes like Legacy, was so Bates Motel--version 1.0, not that Gus Van Sant disaster--that I couldn't help but be pretty pleased by it.
