It’s almost Halloween and the gore and scent of blood is already getting to our senses. Thanks to the mall displays, TV features and memes online, we can all say, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Halloween!!!”
If you’re looking for something scary to watch this weekend and want to experience more than the usual horror films or TV series, check out this TV series which is highly-recommended by movie geniuses and critics. Stephen King called it “ferociously original” and Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson later said he found it inspiring. RollingStone.com describes it as “…so over-the-top in its gruesome depiction of twentysomethings becoming possessed by evil spirits.”
