A classic masterpiece!
17 September 2002 | by (Orebro, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This swedish/american production is a pure masterpiece of horror in the genre of Alfred Hitchcock and the twilight zone. I have seen the two first volumes with each 3 episodes (guess they are hard to get).

The Black hand is about doctor Franz who has to cut off his own hand in an caraccident so he doesn´t burn up in the carwreck, then he replaces his hand with a dead mans hand who later turn out to be a serialkiller, and naturally the hand has it´s own life...:-)

Green are the leaves is about a tv-team who are going to catch a ghost "on-air" at an old castle in Sweden. Just after some hours the first person dies and of course the tv-star Henry Waller and his girlfriend decides to spent the night to investigate the ghost.

The Book of ghouls take place in Austria where Anton Lupesco are trying to get a job as a teacher and failes. He finds the book which tells that if he get a couple of things and murder a evil man his dreams will be fulfilled, so he does but who is the evil man...

A funny thing about this serie for all swedes is that Torsten Lilliecrona (or Tor Steen as he calls himself here) is uncle Melker in Astrid Lindgren´s Vi på Saltkråkan, who almost all swedish children has grown up to.
