12. Haeckel's Tale

Hit and miss but horror is subjective and there's something here for everyone many treats well worth a watch. I'm just a bit miffed that they haven't got the second series yet, Joe Dante was esspecialy solid across both series.
Holy shit... when did shudder add this GEM?!
Most of them were pretty good. Loved the Dreams in the Witch House episode, and I particularly liked Deer Woman episode because of the American Werewolf reference.
All interesting in their own way. But loved Fair Haired Child most for its story, and Sick Girl because it was a lesbian comedy horror.
Some are brilliant some are poor, really enjoyed Pick Me up
