From the director of American Psycho, comes this frightfully dreadful episode of Fear Itself.  The writer, Kelly Kennemer, borrowed all the worst bits of Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery” and came up with “Community”.

This young couple wants to live in the perfect place and raise the perfect child, so they sell their soul.  No, just kidding.  But maybe they should have.  The secret within this community isn’t much better.  And the ending is supposed to be a twist, but omg! it’s so obvious and so terrible.  I’d say it shit on the rest of the episode, but none of it was great to be honest.  It’s unoriginal and the characters seem to change their personalities without explanation.

Seriously, this show only gets points because Brandon and Shiri are nice to look at.

Our score: 10/100.
