Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (10 ):

Viewers may be surprised at how a two-sentence viral story as the inspiration for an original, fully developed episode that taps into our most basic human fears. Each story combines eeriness and suspense with elements of psychological horror, and weaves it into emotions society has about contemporary issues like technological connectedness, domestic abuse, and sexual assault. These tales are more creative than completely thought out, and lean towards the bizarre and, at times, grotesque. But it's this absurdity that makes Two Sentence Horror Stories compelling. It's not for everyone, but if you're looking for an interestingly weird entertainment, it will definitely fit the bill.
