Where's the Cryptkeeper when you need him?
28 March 2009 | by ctomvelu-1See all my reviews

It would be easy to compare this short-lived TV series to THE X-FILES, but it is probably closer to the Friday THE 13TH TV series, where several people attempt to regain a series of misplaced artifacts that appear in a book of mystical objects. What all three series share is their Canadian filming, although X-FILES eventually shifted to Los Angeles (and suffered badly after the change). This show, which has absolutely nothing to do with the movie series, has a secret society attempting to regain a series of objects ... well, you get the idea. Very Canadian in Tore, but worth watching, I supposer, on a really dull Saturday night. Both this show and Friday owe their origins to several AMITYVILLE HORROR STVs that followed that movie series.
