Bob Singer’s first episode! It’s rather monochrome. And this is rather abrupt. Yeah, I’ve had a busy week.
Cool trompe l’oeil shot.
Sam’s creepy Hitchcockian silhouette.
Sleepy hedgehog Dean.
Mmm. Look at that iridescent sky.
Shadows everywhere. There are so many Venetian blinds in this episode.
I like the luminous pale-ness here.
Look at those apples. I swear to god it wouldn’t be the same episode without them. They’re so crazy.
Because spiky ridiculous eyelash-shadows.
Brilliant cinematic shot. This looks expensive. Maybe it was, maybe it wasn’t, but it looks it.
Classic creepy angle. And it’s so dim.
I love this because they look like something out of Scooby Doo.
Look at those shadows. That is so nuts.
The Hunter Wall of Crazy. These are always so intricate and this one is as monochromatic as the lighting. What the hell is that skeletal thing in the corner. That is horrifying.
This shot was re-used in Season Four. Hehe.
Oh my god, his face. I love how the SPN guys can look simultaneously gorgeous and like absolute shit.
Sam’s profile looooooooming paley out of the dark.
Impala shot. There’s even a bit of lens flare, look.
All that dark space around her. And more eyelashes.
I love this shot. Cheekbone shadows. Dean’s fingernails. Starry lights fanning out dramatically behind his head. Sam’s deep intense eye-sockets. Whoa.
He’s practically shimmering.
Puppy face to the max.
The light in her eye.
Throwaway silhouette! It’s so clearly defined you can see his stubble.
Beautiful & beautifully lit.
I love the quality of the light in this scene. Everything’s so defined.
Think the blue of the sky here is meant to suggest the blue of that first trompe l’oeil shot?
And a lovely silvery Impala shot to finish.
