I didn’t know what to expect when I started watching this. Nothing much happens as the story goes along but somehow is engaging, maybe the simple story playing along, meeting the characters or just simply....good acting.... but by the end of the episode I was stuck to my sofa..... I need more!!!!!

Aside from the out of place (and time) modern rap music, I enjoyed this first episode a lot.

avatar

Only the first episode is out thus far but I liked what I saw. Was pretty genius really to use 50s racism as a horror element. I found the sundown town scene tense as hell.

avatar

This isn’t lovecraftian at all, don’t get your hopes up. This is more like if old racist America met with a magic cult. However the actors are really what carry this show, it’s better as a character drama than it is as a lovecraftian horror show.

The first episode was ok, but the second and third... this is not Lovecraft.

avatar

[spoiler] I was going to give this movie 9/10 BUT the white guy getting shoe in the ahole made this a perfect 10 for me. LMAOL. [/spoiler]

avatar

I’m 7 episodes in at the time of writing this and since episode 3 I’ve only had one thing on my mind to say to the writers of this show.... I want whatever you’re smoking.

avatar

Every episode it´s getting better

avatar

The best horror we’ve had on TV in a long, long time.

Great start, I really enjoy the pilot to the end. Did not feel sleepy for a second watching this. Most of the show I watch can really get flat and boring,most of which as meaning less episodes each season. Let's hope the intensity of this show continues. There was just one scene that I didn't like that didn't fit the time period ,however I will not touch that subject matter at this time. Thumbs up for the pilot.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
