Severe padding and worse than shoestring SFX budget
-watched till Episode 4- Do you remember those creepy episodes of Courage the Cowardly Dog and even some of those Tom & Jerry episodes? Candy Cove is no where close to being even remotely spooky. It looks and sounds like some children's school Pirate themed project filmed in class. The dialog is not menacing. The figures are not disturbing.
The lack of content to fill 6 episodes really show whenever you get scenes which shows a protagonist just walking through a building for 3 minutes with no atmosphere and simple camera pans, it gets really tedious to watch. Repeat that with 20 seconds here of people just sitting around and 20 seconds of lingering shots every scene change, this becomes unwatchable.
It is also plagued by clichés of characters unwilling to talk and discuss with each other, thus wasting episodes with no progress, filled with conversations so devoid of content that a 5 minutes long palaver can be edited to 1 minute or less.
And being billed as horror, the creatures look identical to grade school home made Halloween costumes. How is that suppose to create tension? All in all, the producers should really had made this into hour long stand-alone episodes, like a true horror anthology. Unbelievable that this had been picked up for 4 seasons. Guess SyFy is really desperate to fill up the time slots.
