Great show
10 January 2007 | by (MTY Mexico) – See all my reviews

One of the best TV shows to be done in Mexico, especially during the 80's. I remember watching it as a kid and being truly frightened by most episodes. It really deserves a DVD release if not as a whole(it did lasted for a long time after all) as a 'best of', certainly a lot more than the crap soaps Televisa is putting out on DVD now a days. I did had a chance recently to check it out again as I acquired a few DVDrs of original recordings(around 30 episodes) and its pretty much as I remembered it, some were truly frightening and well done, some where deliberately campy and humorous, some not so deliberate yet it was just fun to see how they fumbled the ball with them... However they all shared one thing(besides La Dama De Negro who appears on each episode) which was freedom to experiment, it just seems weird that the company who's soap operas are all carbon copy's from each other would allow this amount of freedom to the authors of each story, it really didn't followed a guideline of what they could do, some stories are downright surrealist, others are child minded, others are just slasher like violent... Just a series of great mini movies(each ep runs at 20 min).
