Good stuff for any horror geek out there
2 November 2018 | by TwistedContentSee all my reviews

First off, I gotta oppose to those reviews that give 1/10's because "it's political". I understand exactly why they call it that, but the political stuff is ultimately not that biased & there's not much of it, it really does not "sit on the nose". As a life-long devoted horror cinema & literature fan, I can only enjoy 40 minutes of awesome, known horror people talking about their favorite thing passionately. I have to admit, that some of the information the series provide is already an average horror geek's general knowledge, but it does not lessen the excitement to watch the series. Each of the 40minutes-long episodes is dynamic and consistent enough for the episode to feel like it's only 20 minutes long. An easy, informing, entertaining, laid-back watch. And If you're not much into the horror genre, then, well, you won't find any of this interesting. My rating after seeing 4 episodes: A solid 7/10.
