This show started as a quasi reality show and took a hard turn into supernatural grindhouse fare. There were so many subplots floating around in this production which, surprisingly, were tied up by the end.
The first few episodes were actually quite good and creepy. The storyline is interesting and the characters are well thought out. I did think a lot of their decisions were incredibly stupid, and the writing seemed juvenile at times, but still entertaining nonetheless. Also the editing was all over the place as if they forgot to insert a scene. It seemed pretty mid-to-low budget in that aspect. However as we moved towards the end of the series, it diverted into something else. *SPOILERS**************All of the graphic rape scenes and all of the "almost" rape scenes seemed more like some weirdo's sick fantasy rather than more for the plot... I mean, they "explain" it but, really, it's not really necessary to blast it all over the TV. My favorite part was when ******** raped ******* and then later when determining his fate everyone's like "Let's wait until he shows he's not dangerous."************ Anyway, the ending was terrible and it was either rushed or left open for interpretation.
The show had some good ideas but they were executed poorly. Towards the end I was begging for it to be over.
I wish more US network shows were this visceral & exciting! It’s the perfect balance of mystery, occult horror and satire. They acting is very emotive and spot-on, kudos to the cast! Good story, claustrophobic sets and production values. Too bad it only lasted one season.😿
