Holy sh*t. This series premiere packs quite a powerful punch. We wouldn’t say we’re horror connoisseurs, but we like well-made horror stories with an interesting point-of-view, like Showtime’s Penny Dreadful and movies like last year’s The Witch or The Conjuring. We want to be sacred, but we don’t want any of those terrifying moments to be cheap or predictable. And so far, this show is delivering in a big way.
