Based on Joe Hill's New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, NOS4A2 is a different kind of vampire story. It follows Vic McQueen, a gifted young woman who discovers she has a supernatural ability to find lost things. This ability puts her on a collision course with the evil and immortal Charlie Manx. Manx is a supernatural villain who feeds off the souls of children and then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – a twisted place of Manx's imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims – without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself. New episodes weekly on Shudder.

All in all? A pleasurable watch. I mean, I’m not one to usually stick around past season one of anything. It didn’t really satisfy my itch for vampire content but the concept was refreshing. I’ll definitely throw it into rotation of shows I put on in the background. Just would’ve love a little more traditional lore woven in there.
I wanted to like this series so much, but everyone tried to over or under act that it eventually was just distracting
great show, i was so impressed with the acting. i love who played Vic McQueen. didn't quite pull it off as a teenager but still. amazing. i highly recommend reading the book though. i read it a year or so after it was published. i absolutely adore Joe Hill.
Not enough suspense.
it was okay. I thought it would be overly good and it was just okay. It was hard to follow the storyline.
