My reaction
Concept:3/4 (Good)
Story:0/4 (Terrible)
Characters:0/4 (Terrible)
Dialog:0/4 (Terrible)
Pacing:1/4 (Bad)
Cinematography:3/4 (Good)
Special effects/design:4/4 (Great)
Acting:1/4 (Bad)
Music:2/4 (Indifferent)
Subjective Rating: 3/10 (Bad, 1/4 (Bad)). I was really expecting this to be awesome. Turns out it’s just a bad soap opera. There’s about ten or fifteen minutes of action/horror stuff in each episode, and those bits are really good, but otherwise it’s terrible.
Objective Rating (Average):1.5/4 (Eh)
