THE HOUSE BETWEEN, Episode #18: "Scared"

In the latest episode of The House Between, the focus shifts to the “next generation,” as Arlo and Theresa are tormented by living nightmares. Quoth John Kenneth Muir, “I don't think it was a coincidence that I decided to marry an Arlo/Theresa story with a rubber-reality horror movie, since these are our two youngest characters on The House Between. Most of the time in rubber reality horrors, it's up to struggling adolescents to defeat evil before they get the chance to grow up and live happily ever after.”

I’m not sure that “happily ever after” is in the cards just yet, but both the characters and the actors (Jim Blanton as Arlo, Alicia A. Wood as Theresa) take big leaps forward in “Scared.” In an insightful review on the Quantum Imprimaturs blog, Lar rightly says that “SCARED is more symbolic than any episode of The House Between so far… It seems on the surface like a horror movie about a scary clown but is actually a more complex reflection of a beloved character and character conflict.” As for the clown… this episode introduces a new villain named Vinnie Coto, who is played by series special effects wizard Rob Floyd. Seen here attacking the director with a mallet...

If you want to get a better look at the new character, you’ll just have to watch the show…
