there was no typewriters!!!!

if you want to see typewriters in a movie this isn't for you, I'm honestly appalled about the fact that there was extreme false advertisement :(

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

This TV adaptation of a web series spins a ghostly tale that's more charming than terrifying. While it has suspense and some bloody, scary moments, the pace of the series is set by the young members of the Ghost Club, who consistently find themselves caught up in some sort of mischief while pursuing their spirit-hunting passion. The interactions between the extended cast makes for some comical moments, reveals romantic tensions, and churns out subsequent plot lines. While these inevitably collide with the supernatural narrative at various points in the story world, chances are it will remind you of popular stateside shows like Stranger Things than darker, more horror-driven series like The Haunting of Hill House. Those looking for a more traditional variation of the genre may be disappointed by the lack of extra scary stuff, but what Typewriter presents is well-written, extremely entertaining, and oddly addictive.
