I created an IMDb account purely so I could review this show.
I am a huge horror fan and have been all my life and although the horror genre is still fairly new to TV shows, I feel like this is what I have been waiting for. I tried Scream, Slasher, Darknet, and nothing comes close to this show. I didn't know much about Creepypasta so for me this was all new and exciting. From the first ep I was intrigued, it was a thinking person's show, not just cheap jump scares.
The idea of puppets and dolls is creepy anyway, but the simplicity and subtlety of the storyline, the location, the characters..that's what gets you. To take things that scare you as a kid and bring them to your adult life in a way that isn't ridiculous is smart writing. It makes you think long after you've watched it and not many shows or movies have that effect on me as I've watched so many horrors I'm very rarely taken by surprise.
If you're a fan of being creeped out, do yourself a favour. Mike (played by Paul Schneider who I had only seen in Parks and Recreation!) is excellent. He's a character you're unsure of, but feel for.
There aren't many things in the horror genre I'd give a 10, but each week I can't wait to watch a new episode!!
