Although I wouldn't class it as terrifying, this certainly isn't one for the faint-hearted. The characters are well-developed and interesting, and I can never wait until the next episode. I can't believe there will only be six episodes! The first episode, about the girl and her lavender-scented mother, was predictable but still chilling and a good watch. The second, about the drowned girl, was fear-inducing, and made you think a lot. I really like the way it was done. Watch it if you can manage catch it - most of us have busy schedules nowadays! - but don't let your kids watch it, especially if they get nightmares easily. Overall, it's a spooky, fascinating take on a subject never really addressed or looked at in much detail, so I assume most people will find it quite unique and VERY different; I did, and I'm the world's biggest critic (well, sort of.)
