Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful 13 year old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims - a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story - and survive this homecoming.


REVIEW:
I did not read the book.
Frankly, I'm glad, since the subject matter probably would've had me throwing the book across the room.
It took me a bit to get into while watching the episodes. It was probably the fourth episode before I really started to enjoy the story and where it was going. Then I couldn't get enough though, and now need more 'cause what a cliffhanger ending!!
Yup, very good stuff. Mind-bending and thrilling!! 


4/5

  1. I loved this one. I haven't read the book either but I thought everyone did an amazing job on this series. Haunting.

  2. I just watched the dvd last week and also had not read the book. It definitely took me till the 2nd disk to start to really enjoy this show. And how crazy that there was an ending after the credits. I would not have known if I had not read about it online.

  3. Am I confused? I thought this was a limited series, not Season 1.

    1. You may be right. The way they left off, it would be weird not to continue though.

    1. I read the book and then rented the series. I don't know how anyone could have enjoyed the series without first reading the book. The series alone would have confused me during the first three episodes.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.
