Such a pleasure!
19 December 2012 | by ivegonemodSee all my reviews

I just finished watching this and I couldn't be more pleased, I'd never heard of the series before so I wasn't expecting too much, but boy did I get it! This is just the kind of program I love. You can have a creepy good time and a fashion extravaganza all in one. I would chop off my toenails for Donna Mills' wardrobe, and her friend's was top notch too. Very well acted and the house was just to die! I couldn't takes my eyes off the screen. The 1970's did most things better as far as I can tell. I'm not up on my camera lingo, so I don't know what type of film they use for this but I love it. I call it 3's-company-style, or live audience style. It makes everything feel so much more scary when it's shot with the live film.
