ive found these surprisingly addictive, most of them aren't really that good but some are surprisingly brilliant especially substance. Great episode they could really make that into a movie.
Really enjoyed many of the episodes!
I am only halfway into the first season and I gotta say, I don’t consider these as horror stories. More like something you would see on the SyFy channel. Not my cup of tea, but I will keep watching and give another season a chance.
I am only halfway into the first season and I gotta say, to me, these aren't horror stories. m
Loving these short horror stories directed by women. I'd say most are really good with a few that stand out from the rest. Keep them coming 👍👍
