As many of you will know, in 2010 I published The unofficial cartoon guide to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. At 300+ pages the book features 700+ pieces of trivia, 460+ deleted scenes, 360+ examples of animation reuse, 380+ quotes, 50+ abandoned episodes, and a LOT more! It is the book that NO fan of the Filmation series can live without! BUY IT NOW!
As an incentive, here is my brief review and rating (as they appear in the book) for "House of Shokoti" Part 2...
From the moment this episode begins with a long panning shot of the House of Darkness, accompanied by some foreboding music, we know we are in for a treat. The atmosphere throughout the episode is breathtaking, with a wealth of twisted, creepy, action sequences. He-Man, Battle Cat and Ram Man make for an exciting heroic trio, but they are not the stars of this episode. The dynamic between Stanlan and Shokoti works beautifully as the episode progresses. Numerous factors, including Larry DiTillio's script, the beautiful yet haunting direction and animation, and Linda Gary's fine performances as both Stanlan and Shokoti, make this episode one of the scariest and best of the series. 9/10
