If you have not watched the show My comments are spoiler... so do not continue to read if you have not watched the show already.....I think the story is a good one that they have something that they can work with and I am looking forward to a sequel. I enjoyed the cast immensely except for one character and that would be the young lady that was dead through the entire Show's father his acting skills are far from good I know he used to be a good actor but on the show he's horrible. The other thing that I enjoyed immensely would be Kim Coates he is fantastic and I think it was very stupid of them to kill him off hope I'm not killing it for anybody but that is an actor you do not want to get rid of I hope they bring them back somehow. Really good show lead actor is great...

if you're into the Afterlife or TV shows like Supernatural this is definitely something to watch

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (2 ):

This eerie series mixes horror and the supernatural to create a pretty heavy viewing experience. The overall narrative is engaging, but there are also lots of disquieting plot twists that hype up the strangeness. Adding to this is the eclectic ensemble of characters, all of whom are disturbing in their own way.

There are a few moments where you feel like you're watching a science fiction piece, but most of the show centers around dark paranormal forces that remind you of the existence of evil. The show also highlights this by including a fair amount of blood and gore. If you like this sort of thing, you'll find Ghost Wars to be entertainingly sinister.
