I had the chance to come across this show when it was broadcasted on France 5 in France, but I understand it was not widely released... It's regrettable, because I found the show very entertaining, and it occurs too seldomly that a show will not talk down to children, belittle them or think they're retarded just because they're young. The character design is a real treat for the eyes, and of course, since the show is about horror, there's a vampire, a monster that reminds of Victor Frankenstein's Creature, a hunchback, a mummy, etcetera, there even is a zombie who is always seen watching TV all day, and whose eyes almost drop out of his head... As you can believe, the connections to popular literary and cinematographic culture don't end there, there's a lot of clever in-jokes when the characters speak to each other, in the way the sets are designed, etc. If your kids are too young to watch Tim Burton's films and the Hammer films from the 60s, this will be a good introduction to keep them waiting with cold-blooded humour!
