Movie Reviews

Okay for the money
J. A. Savoye | USA | 06/06/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"As far as I can tell, this series apparently ran on the Sci-Fi channel (1994-1995), although it may have still been aired as late as 1998. There seem to be a total of 52 episodes for the full run -- and I hope someone will correct me if I am mistaken. Some of the later segments appear to have been repackaged in other forms for DVD, but this was the first time I had seem most of these. The series has the same general feel as "Sightings," but almost none of the topics are dealt with in more than superficial detail, and the stories are not as slickly produced. The set has been put together rather sloppily, with the DVDs externally labeled incorrectly. (Discs I and II actually contain 8 episodes on each, and Disc III contains 9 episodes.) Also, the sequence of segments within each episode do not always match the menus, and a few of the titles are incorrectly noted. There are also a few intermittent image and audio anomalies. If there is a release of Season II, I hope it is produced with greater care. Not terribly impressive, but light fun -- the best segments being those related to ghosts and hauntings. (The same people seem to have been behind the much better Ghost Stories series.) I love this stuff as a record of modern folklore, but someone who has not seen as many things on these subjects, or is more inclined to believe in it as true, might find it more enjoyable. (Without the errors, I might have given it 3 stars.)
