The previous work of this team was the amazing The House At The Haunting Hill which was a very great show and the audience loved every single episode of it. Many of the fans of the horror genre have very high expectations from this show as it is the follow up to a very amazing horror tv show that was loved by everyone. This is a very similar story from in terms of setting but the time period is different.
The cast of characters that are present in that is really good as well which will make the show more enjoyable to watch. The first season that had only a few jump-scares but the suspense was insane and every scene was shot beautifully and the story wasn’t rushed or anything like that. The ending of the show was pretty heartbreaking but it felt satisfying.
Hopefully, this show will have the same tension and suspense and a little more jumpscares which would make it even more terrifying. But the main focus should be the story of the show and lovable characters which we will feel for and be worried about.
