Truly frightening t.v. series from Mèxico.
21 June 2005 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

Now, this was a great show. Unlike other t.v. series from Mèxico in the 80's, "La Hora Marcada" had a big budget, excellent directors (Del Toro, Cuaròn), good actors, and best of all, a great script for every episode.

The episodes were truly frightening and were even better than most Horror movies from Mèxico.

I really hope someone will be intelligent enough to put this on DVD. Believe me, many people will buy it because it's one of the best shows on Mexican t.v. ever.

If you catch it on re runs, please watch it you won't regret it. "La Hora Marcada" is not only for horror fans, it's for everyone that appreciates quality t.v. series.
