1. Something Wicked
Dean: “I'd give anything not to tell you this, but sometimes nightmares are real.”
“Something Wicked” wins out at number one because not only is the monster of the story frightening, but the episode is the only one in the series that uses legitimately creepy music.
In short, it has the whole package of Scary.
A Shtriga is a witch that feeds on children, sucking their life force while they sleep. Not particularly frightening, until you actually see the thing. It’s old-school horror, going back to your childhood, when you cowered under the covers at the sound of a tree branch tapping on your bedroom window and had an irrational fear of elderly people because their skin was wrinkled and gnarled. And nothing is creepier than seeing those long, spindly fingers reaching to open that window from the outside….I think I just spooked myself again, lol.
This is another monster that, for many reasons, unnerved Dean Winchester. We all know he hates witches, and this was the one that had gotten away. But the music sealed the deal for me and made this episode worthy of being deemed the scariest of all.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go bed – and you can bet I’ll be sleeping with the lights on tonight. ;)
What do you think is the scariest episode of Supernatural? Did it make the list?
