MattFini's Halloween Top 10 Lists: Overlooked Slashers

30 October 2009 9:27 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The show aired for four seasons, and then was out. And to be fair, it ran out of steam, but when it was on, it was one of the most dazzling formalist TV shows to ever air. My review after the jump.
