* The entire concept of "Brain Drain" is terrifying--not only is it based on the RealLife practice of trephanation that is already NightmareFuel, but it goes beyond that into pulling out intelligence and sentience along with spinal fluid. On top of ''that'', the scenes where the machine is used are cringe-inducing between the poor victim writhing and screaming as they are strapped in the chair and [[{{Squick}} the look of ecstasy]] on the villain's face as he uses it. Having it be used on Jack's OldFlame was just the last awful touch, especially when it seems her memories and personality were absorbed into the villain...

* Veda, the CreepyDoll from the pilot epoisode "The inhertiance", is ''evil'' with a capital E-V-I-L, and the girl who ends up with her is just as bad. (Is the doll influencing her? Was she already somewhat bad to begin with? Or is it a little bit of both?)

* The BodyHorror in "Faith Healer." Both the disease healed when the preacher first uses the glove, and the cancer which Jack's friend wants healed, are horrifically superb makeup jobs. (But then, the episode ''was'' directed by DavidCronenberg...)

* There were a lot of disturbing situations in the series, despite its overall cheesiness. One of the freakiest involved a body-transferring amulet. A CorruptHick with a penchant for stuffing animals (and people) is shoved down the stairs by a chair containing the decayed stuffed corpse of his grandfather and is on the verge of death; rather than dying, he transfers his mind into the corpse. Normally, this would restore the corpse to a living, intact condition, but perhaps being rotten and stuffed with sawdust was too much to overcome. When the madman reappears, he hisses eerily, "Why die?", as if even life as a decaying monster is better than death to him. (Unfortunately, captioning revealed that he actually says "Time to die," which is too trite to be really scary any more.)

* The episode with "Mesmer's Bauble" is quite disturbing. A homely guy uses it to make himself popular and handsome so that he can become the love of a singer he had a crush on. But then he decides loving her is not enough...he has to ''be'' her. Cue a scene where he is literally melting into her body. And if that wasn't bad enough, when the bauble is removed all the wishes are canceled causing him to revert from a beautiful woman to a homely man in an equally disturbing way.

''And this all happens onstage in front of a live audience.''
