While driving with the family in Part 1 the dad points out, "This town's main job shut down recently." However, the chemical factory (main job) they drive by is clearly still open, having over twenty cars in the parking lot and people visible in the background. In part 2 the newspaper about the factory accident shows the chemical factory as having been blown up to the point of total destruction, yet in Part 1 the chemical factory is still there, appears perfectly fine, and any sign of an accident is obsolete.

Really creepy and thrilling!

Amanda and Josh are very upset at having to move away to a small town called Dark Falls. Unknown to them the town was subject to a horrible chemical factory accident that killed all the chemists years ago. The Dark Falls chemists soon murdered the other townspeople and the entire town became a place of the living dead. Amanda and Josh, along with their parents and dog, are the next victims unless they can figure out the truth. This is a great show, filmed in Canada with amazing scenery and an eerie plot. The cast choice was a good one and I really wish the soundtrack was available because it's eerie and beautiful. There are a few plot flaws though. First off, yes it's a small town. But when an accident kills an entire town, no matter the size an investigation would take place outside of town. The living dead are all dressed as if they just stepped out of the 1930's but the accident apparently occurred in the early 1990's. They really went out of their way to make the town stand out, complete with the name Dark Falls and a highly dangerous factory, as if they tried too hard and it becomes unrealistic at best. Also, the story is great, but for a show aimed at teens aged 12 to 14 the plot is a little too freaky. There is one part in the second half of the episode where an adult man, a former construction worker, begins to try and make his way into the room of the twelve year old character Amanda. There appears to be some love between her and the dead boy Ray, but then he tries to eat her, so it's not exactly a successful first date. The townspeople are dressed a little funny at times. The HAZMAT suits on the two dead guys in the background make sense, but then you've got a fat zombie mayor dressed in his best suit, a zombie sheriff, zombie chemist women in lab coats... how come not one of them is dressed in average casual clothing? That being said the show itself is successful at being creepy and the characters' personalities are very good. I would love it if they'd release the episode's soundtrack. Or if this story were made into a full-length film. Also, what happened to cause the chemical factory accident? They could have explained the past a little better. Was it an explosion, a leak, buildup of pollution, employee negligence? What killed the workers? This TV episode could really be developed into something amazing.

On a separate note, I really loved the shirt the zombie Karen was wearing, the gray one with the G-crown logo thing, I'd totally buy a shirt like that.
