The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Lost Girl, Season 1 (2010)


Starring: Anna Silk


Synopsis:
A succubus who is just learning her powers tries to solve the mystery of why she is what she is and remain neutral in an age old battle between the Light and Dark Fae (supernatural creatures)

My Take:
It's a decent premise, especially with a succubus named Beau in the lead role, as she masquerades as private eye. Naturally all the cases end up having a connection to the secret Fae World. The show does a fine job creating its own mythos of fairytale and supernatural beings. Most of the secondary characters are intriguing and refreshing characters not normally seen in a horror style show.

The human sidekick, Kenzi, did tend to get on my nerves a bit. And poorly written one liners come fast and furious towards each episodes end. The writers should cut down on those.

Favorite Episode: "Vexed" (episode 8)
In this episode shit hits the fan as Beau tries to help a Fae on death row, who just happens to know something about her past. Both sides don't like her interfering as it breaks the old laws.

Review: In the Middle (but in a positive, take a chance kind of way)
