Analysis

The series boasts of an intriguing central premise thats a treat for supernatural lovers. The story grips you right from the word go.

The mysterious atmospherics, the eerie gloom, the bizarre behaviours and the spooky looks add up to some delicious scary moments without having to resort to typical cliches or jump scares.

Horror lovers would be able to relish some genuinely petrifying moments besides enjoying some light ones when we get a peep into Emma’s camaraderie with her childhood friends. Towards the end, when they decide to deal with the witch, the horror element turns almost like a thriller akin to dealing with a powerful baddie.

Overall, I really enjoyed the series. Highly recommended for the supernatural lovers. The story offers a perfect package of spook, intrigue, thrills and novelty value.
