Packed with no filler
12 April 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen every episode and they never disappoint. Each episode shows 3 cases where people barely survived. Sometimes they die. It's interesting and scary at the same time. What this show does better than other shows of this type is pacing. Where other shows will take 42 minutes to show 1 or maybe 2 cases, this fits 3 in. It shows just enough to form a bond with the individual but not enough to get boring. Be warned; after watching this you will be more paranoid about your surroundings.
