Did You Know?


The private research laboratory in the series is named "Lambda" and has a Greek letter lambda as its logo. The letter lambda is also the logo of the video game series Half-Life; in that instance it comes from the Lambda Team research group. In both cases, Lambda is responsible for an experiment in high energy physics that unleashed entities from another plane of existence, although everything else about the catastrophes are very different. This is likely to be a deliberate nod by the writers. See more »

Solid Pilot with Intriguing Characters
7 October 2017 | by heekpermissionSee all my reviews

Watched the premiere of Ghost Wars pilot ans was thoroughly entertained.

The show's concept is very interesting and the characters as well.

The show deals with the scenario of the small town Port Moore cut off from the rest of the world overrun with ghosts which have the ability to implant visions into the local town folk and manipulate the peoples individuals fears.

The town folk have the local outcast Roman mercer played by Avan Jogia who has the ability to see through these visions so he becomes the only layer of protection against Ghosts who also happens to be a Psychic.

The other characters which are the Reverend Dan played by Vincent D'Onofrio and the Town Bully played by Meat Loaf are also interesting and the eerie vibe the location and look of the show is a character too.

Looking forward to see where show grows and how the town survives with the characters introduced.
