Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Ghost Wars is a horror series about a remote Alaskan town that is experiencing a deadly mass haunting, and a young man with the ability to help. There are violent, bloody, and sometimes gory scenes, as well as threats and bullying. There's also some cursing, and plenty of drinking. There's some limited sexual innuendo, but this is overshadowed by the eerie narrative. It will appeal to teens who like a good ghost story, but it's too intense for younger viewers and folks who find this sort of thing disturbing.
Is It Any Good?
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.
