I was surprised at how creepy this episode was once the Somnambulator consequences kick in. There are some legitimate horror elements here and some of the imagery is extremely unsettling: seeing the Night Family shrouded in darkness with their eyes glowing as they carry out their tasks like zombies is extremely effective.

Night Summer force-feeding Rick dried scraps from an unwashed plate is downright nauseating.
