The series deserved better
18 August 2019 | by nicholls905-280-546911See all my reviews

New writer and branching away from the core mythology. Interesting idea but the core scares and twists just aren't here. I've heard there was another storyline, but the studio had cold feet after Columbine Massacre. Shame they didn't respect the fans and franchise, but with a new writer this didn't fail horribly.
