Dean says that the tire tracks belonged to tires only used on a 1989 Geo Metro. This car when new had odd-sized 12" tires. This model sold with 12" tires through 1994, so it would not be possible to limit the tire to a 1989 model. Additionally, the original tires made for use in 1989 would not likely still be in use in 2014 due to dry rot (age) and tread wear (use). See more »

Could have been better...
4 March 2014 | by Shane3182See all my reviews

That was not quite what I was expecting out of this episode. When I hear "Ghostfacers" I think of hilarity and hijinks that follow closely behind them. We've seen the Ghostfacers, Ed and Harry, in the show before in the episodes "Hell House" and "Ghostfacers" and I was excited to see them return because I was sure it would be an amusing episode, which is something we haven't had in a very long time. I was wrong about several things. One, there was little to no hilarity in this episode other than Ed and Harry being a bit quirky, and two, Ed and Harry are not like the ghostfacers we've watched in the past.

This episode starts off with a young teenage girl at home alone, taking photos of herself in her room, when suddenly a faceless monster appears in her room and kills her. As the title suggests, and because it is revealed shortly after, this monster could be the so-called "Thinman," and it is not difficult to made the connection between this tall, suited, faceless monster and the popular internet-born monster known as Slenderman. Honestly, I think the case was the best thing this episode had going for it. I was drawn in pretty quickly by the creepy monster and was really hoping for the rest of the episode to be frightening. Unfortunately, there were only a couple scenes that I would consider to be scary, but despite that I was still intrigued by the case for a while.

This episode, however, seemed to focus less on Thinman and more on Ed and Harry, as well as Sam and Dean. Should be fun, right? Hilarious ghostfacers paired up with the Winchesters again! Not so much. This is where I personally think the episode was failing, and that was trying to make Ed and Harry's struggling friendship believable. Yes, Ed and Harry are going through some tough times, and while that would probably be fine for the episode, the blatant use of parallels between the ghostfacers struggles and Sam and Dean become almost obnoxious.

We know that Sam and Dean are having some problems, and they haven't been communicating very well, so the writer of this episode (Jenny Klein) was clearly trying to have Sam and Dean's problems transfer right over to Ed and Harry. So instead of the ghostfacers being comical idiots, we have Ed and Harry lying to each other, fighting with each other and unwilling to come to a compromise. Who does this sound like? Obviously Sam and Dean. Who does this NOT sound like? The Ghostfacers. I've already watched an entire season of Sam and Dean arguing and lying to each other, I didn't watch this episode wanting to see it happen all over again with the two (arguably) funniest duo in the show.

In terms of the case itself, I'd say the episode was decent and worth watching. When it came to the characters though, I was not impressed with how they were written. They could have done so much with the Ghostfacers' return, and I'm a bit disappointed that this is what they chose to do with them. All in all though, it was an okay episode.
