Overall not bad
15 January 2020 | by borgolariciSee all my reviews

Pretty typical horror/adventure series about a small, secluded community that's also a cult. Nothing revolutionary or unforgettable but entertaining enough! There are some dumb plot holes here and there, the female main lead is kind of annoying, but overall is well done.
