Storyline

From the executive producer of The Walking Dead and the executive producer of The X-Files, this anthology series brings to life Aaron Mahnke's "Lore" podcast and uncovers the real-life events that spawned our darkest nightmares. Blending dramatic scenes, animation, archive and narration, Lore reveals how our horror legends - such as vampires, werewolves and body snatchers - are rooted in truth.

Bad narration, confusing reenactments, and some good content.
16 October 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off, the narrator sounds like he is doing a bad William Shatner impersonation. It didn't bother me at first, but there's a LOT of narration in the show and the way he speaks really started to take away rather than add to the show. The voice in general doesn't seem to complement the content.

I really wanted to like this show, as this kind of subject material has always interested me, but I think the way they try to mix entertainment and information doesn't quite work.

The facts are presented as such and are informative and interesting for the most part, kind of like the old "In Search of" shows.

The dramatic segments that are acted out are supposed to be based on true events, but I think they go a little overboard in an attempt to entertain. For employing such well known actors, they weren't very enjoyable. Felt drawn out, unsuspenseful, and fell flat. Especially when interrupted by narration that abruptly switches gears.

I was especially interested in Unboxed, the story of Robert the Doll, but even I knew more about it than they presented in the 40 minutes of run time and I found the whole episode confusing and irritating without giving me anything new. I've seen better and shorter presentations about it on YouTube. This episode, while having its moments, was a lost opportunity to do something special.

In the series overall, I was really disappointed in something I had been looking forward to seeing.
