Narrator: Come with me to a place of wondrous contradictions. A place that is silent and unstirring yet is restless and alive. A place of untold peace and boundless dread. Come with me into the very cradle of darkness where those who dwell, dwell alone!

Embarrassing. Amateurish. Disappointing.
7 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love a good ghost story as much as the next guy. That's the problem with this little-known series: its ghost stories are far from good. Perhaps this is the reason Hulu is offering episodes at the time of this review: no doubt Hulu obtained it very cheaply indeed.

Without exception, the series scripts are hackneyed, the acting rarely rises above the typical junior high school play, and the production values--well, let's just say no one went broke putting this turkey together.

Not all television productions deserve to be resurrected after a failed first run: this is one of them. Watch if you must, but don't say you haven't been warned!
