Trivia

Part of the plot of episode 3 concerns past events when the mother's character got herself "in trouble" back in high school (in the 1980's) and she convinces a friend to help her break into a pharmacy to get the morning after pill. The morning after pill was not available until 1999. See more »

Goofs

During a flashback when Fred Allen and his brother are children in the sprawling isolated family home they fend of a monster. The noise attracts the attention of a police officer who attends stating, the neighbours heard a commotion. But the house is shown to be deep in the woods, without any neighbours nearby at all.

Promising start - then fizzles and naseuates
30 January 2020 | by runit-27183See all my reviews

Love the genre, so I am an easy sell. But I ain't buying.

First two episodes were intriguing and visually pleasing, benefiting from the stylistic touch of "Director X".

This could have been amazing. But by episode six or so, watching this became a chore.

Acting was so-so - but casting downright dubious, particularly role of Fred Allen (the Father) who is badly miscast.

Writing and dialogue are often cloyingly PC, silly, or strains disbelief.

Example: heavily armed folks are about to break down a door and harm/apprehend two main protagonists. Escape awaits via an open secret passage, but teenager refuses to move; "Not until I get some answers!".
