Brilliant distubing series
28 July 2018 | by m-akisanyaSee all my reviews

I remember seeing this show when I was very young. It was really disturbing, to the point where I had trouble sleeping (particularly that intro sequence). The acting was brilliant, the stories were imaginitive. The show is high quality throughout.
