Recommended for fans of the urban fantasy/horror genre(s)
19 September 2013 | by chrystalr-906-994524See all my reviews

I saw some promo-pictures of this, and thought it looked nicely dark & grim, perfectly up my alley. Then I watch the episode and they start it up with a nice classic rock song! It set a really good mood for the rest of the episode, I got some heavy Supernatural vibes, only here the main protagonists are NOT two hot boys, but rather one man with a British accent who has awakened after being dead for 250 years, and a young black cop woman in the process of getting transferred to the FBI. The main cast had good chemistry, not in the romantic/sexual way, but more like the start of an interesting friendship. Which I appreciated! Too much forced romances these days. The guy's dead wife is kind of still in the picture, so I doubt there'll be any romance between the main cast any time soon.

All in all the first episode showed great promise. It was deliciously dark, grim and even somewhat gritty, but with some nice aesthetics. Wes Craven is great at creating atmosphere, and there even were a few jump-scares and goose-bump moments there, without it crossing too far from urban fantasy into pure horror. I would say it's a suspense urban fantasy with horror elements.

I do recommend it for those who enjoy shows like Grimm, Supernatural, etc. It may not be drama-ish enough for the Vampire Diaries crowd, and is not as horror filled as an American horror story. I wouldn't say it copies anything (other than the original sleepy horror movie, of course, though it has it's own interesting spin on the whole thing) and it seems creative and interesting! Plot being what seems mainly focused on, and it had some snappy lines here and there, showing it may have some decently talented writers.

So, check it out!
