The best show in a while
9 March 2003 | by (new zealand) – See all my reviews

The first time i say this show i was like drab another rip off of tales from the crypt or some show like that but by the end i was lke baboom!!!that was wicked so every time it finished i couldn't wait till the next week to find out another chilling story of the maori.Although they were quite violent i thought that it was just the right amount if i saw any more blood i probably would have switched it off.my favorite episode was the rocks about a set of giant rocks that hurt you if you injured them all in all good on you new zealand for creating such an intresting show.Can't wait till the next season.A+
