A take-off on "The Blair Witch Project," in which a guy finds out that his supposedly dead brother isn't dead after all when he sees him on the Internet. It's all about his spooky adventures in finding the truth.
A TV show from the five-member Haxan Films team (consisting of Eduardo Sanchez, Daniel Myrick, Robin Cowie, Gregg Hale, and Mike Manello) collaborated with screenwriter David S. Goyer, whose credits include Blade, Dark City, The Crow: City of Angels, and The Puppet Masters about a webmaster who looks for the weirdness and shares it with his internet viewers. Just like "The Blair Witch" did, 'Fearsum' has a website that Derek Barnes is the webmaster of.Written by
I liked Freakylinks, it has a ton of potential as long as it continues to branch out. The one problem I have is that the show needs to develop the individual characters more so that we can relate to them and like them better. It seems like the show rushes to the action part, when we should be getting to know the characters a little more so that we can see how they react, what they are all about, and just give an overall personality to the characters and the group. Overall a solid show, and if they clear up those flaws and improve on them, they can easily develop a Star Trek, or X-Files or Xena or Hercules-type cult following that cashes in and becomes a big hit for years to come.
