Excellent Period Horror
13 July 2016 | by sanjpai36See all my reviews

There is something very sinister about possession in children that has spawned countless movies over the decades. you will be seriously mistaken if you think this is one of the many..... It started out as a well done period drama with some scares thrown in for good measure, as period dramas go, it was a bit slow for the first 2 episodes, but by episode 4 the pace picks up...and from then on it is just an awesome journey. twists like you never would have guessed. it boldly goes where no horror series has gone before. this is like Downtown Abbey/Poldark meets the Grudge/the others meets life on Mars meets back to the future??
