The show, based on creator Adam Green's real life and set in his small hometown of Holliston, MA, follows the lives of Adam and Joe, two friends chasing the dream of becoming successful horror movie filmmakers while struggling to make ends meet and dealing with life and the opposite sex in their post-college jobs at a Boston area cable access station where they also host a late night movie program called "The Movie Crypt." The core ensemble is rounded out by Joe's girlfriend Laura (a morbid yet adorable aspiring artist) and Adam's ex-girlfriend and the greatest heartbreak of his life Corri (a gorgeous nurse and aspiring country singer).

Horror Crusaders

I'm a horror fan, I think for me one of the best things about the genre is how much creative freedom it contains where with it you can do just about anything and make it go any direction you want with it.

This to me is one of my personal favorite TV shows of all time if you can believe that. Because this was one of the show that I've been waiting for for a long time, it's one of those show you never think would happen but thankfully someone finally had the guts to make it; it's a show that was made to horror fans by horror fans.

The plot line I actually like because even though it looks like the typical sitcom format, I think what makes it genuine is the relatablity. From not just their personas but their specialties where their all artist working in the horror field. Most comedies don't have much staying power for me because of the lack of this, because each character is in some field that I'm not in or even care about. This made the humor and drama genuine because some of what happens in the field of horror film making can be crazy and a struggle.

I really like the use of both visual and verbal humor, both I think are spot on and come in at the right times. For the visual the highlight no doubt are in the effects which are all practical so there's no bull crap CGI. It's just cool that they actually get to use gore in a comedy show which is something you don't see unless it's a show on the Adult Swim block.

I really like the characters each of them are underdog artists that are all fighting for a chance to have their visions become reality. I really like Adam Green and Joe Lynch whom both are real life horror directors, surprisingly both of them are capable actors. Both of them aren't really playing characters so much but are in a way playing themselves. I really like the back and forth between them I really bought into their friendship and of course they are in reality since childhood.

The two girls Lisa Ortiz and Corey English are both solid also, they loosely play themselves also. I really like Lisa she is just full of energy, brightness, and quirkiness that make her infectious. In one episode it always cracked me up whenever she keep saying the line "We're so wasted!" But they have a good re pore with the guys and from how they interacted actually made me care about their relationship.

But of course one of the highlights of this dynamic no doubt is Adam's imaginary friend monster. This is a character that could of almost been some passable gimmick but surprising this actually works because this character is sort of whom Calvin is to Hobbies. I think in a way this is realtiable because whenever where alone we sometimes imagine a presence to share certain feelings with that we can't share with anyone else. But his character is just funny as he has some of the best lines, he's extremely crude but supportive toward Adam. I even like the make up design of him, he looks like something out of heavy metal cover art.

However the true heart of the show is in the amount of homage this show pays to the horror genre. This show is pretty much a love letter to horror fandom and shows the importance of it, without it the genere wouldn't be stronger and alive as it is right now. But not just in the reference jokes and slight parodies in horror, but the real highlight is seeing the horror alumni enter the show. You can say we final have guest stars that are actually good, it's just awesome seeing so many of the horror alumni be part of the action and play contrary to themselves. Half the time that's part of what keep me watching the show to see which alumni is going to be next Robert England, David Keith, Zack Gilligan, John Carpenter etc. Hopefully in the future seasons and episodes they'll be around.

There are a lot of great episodes, two of my favorites are one with Danalle Harris guest staring whom is an actress I really like. Yes, I've seen "Halloween 4" and I've had a crush on this girl when I was 7. It was just great seeing her play contrary to herself and of course it all leads to an infamous scene that really made me crack up when she wears a costume I'm sure those that seen the film are all familiar with. Or even another episode which is a parody on not just "The Blair Witch Project" but just the found footage genre in general, this one just made me laugh hard as we see their project turning into a disaster, their film alone makes hoax master seem like academy award directors.

Holliston is a bloody good time.
