Amnesiac Cassie Grant has a premonition that someone or something wants the family that's helping her recover dead. She investigates the secrets of the town they live in and uncovers darkness, both human and supernatural.
The series is a continuation of the story begun in the network's 2014 film Lizzie Borden Took an Axe and, like the film, is speculative. Unlike the film, the events are pretty much entirely fictional. See more »
The fact that this story took place twenty miles down the road from where I live, there is one striking element that quickly got my attention. The accents of the characters do not represent the regions' unique variety of northeastern speech. I realize that this story occurred one hundred and thirty years ago but the accents in the mini series reflect a variety that is more homogenized than it would have been in Fall River Massachusetts in this period. Also, I get the feeling in some of the pub scenes that its the wild west not a yankee/northeastern setting. Where are the fishermen? Where are the Portuguese and french speaking immigrants that started moving into this area to work in textile industry mills? I do think the setting recreation is done well. Costumes are impeccable. Houses in the series seem period and the furnishings are accurate as they can be. The stories are interesting but a bit fanciful. I cannot believe that a psychopathic woman would possess such social power and sway. Her ostracized status would have kept her out of the limelight of Fall River society. the series is a good entertainment value.
