    "An excellent set to commemorate and rewatch the entire british TV series, Penny Dreadful, I am quite pleased with the production values that went into this package. Aside from the overall aesthetics, the show's quality is admired for it's mysterious and haunting demeanor, with characters taken from the classics of yore, dealing with werewolves, Helsing, Jekkyl and Hyde and more. The atmosphere is magical and poetic, with a story that is deep and enigmatic."

    "AHS is probably one of my most amusing, not even guilty pleasure, pleasures. Kathy Bates has always been one of those perfect for a role actresses, but in every season, she just blows me away. Heck, even Lady Gaga killed it (a bit literally, wink wink, nudge nudge) here. Some genuinely terrifying moments, and the sort of stuff that'll make your skin crawl when you're walking alone at night."

    "I am a big horror movie fan and wanted to add some more of that genre to my TV viewing collection. Buffy the Vampire Slayer seemed like a good place to start. Unfortunately for me this was a novelization of the TV show so not an actual show. Good read nonetheless but not what I thought I was purchasing originally. But if the show is anything like the book I'm sure I will enjoy it."

I recently stumbled upon the show "The Exorcist" and was completely blown away. Everything about the show is great, based on the famous movie and book, the series focuses on the beginning of the process. I would totally give this show two thumbs up."

    "I am a huge fan of this show. The Walking Dead is just as good as the comic that it is based on. The show tells the story of two sets of characters that intersect at different intervals. It is zombie gore at its finest! The plots and story lines are intricate and there is even a spin-off that is called Fear the Walking Dead. This is one TV show that you don't want to miss!"

    "If you are into for a TV shows you might enjoy the return. It focuses on a small town where people that of been dead for years start to return. In my opinion, it started out with a lot of potential but went nowhere. The story was very slow and boring. If you have nothing else to do it’s worth a watch, but definitely not something your mess if you don’t see."

    "Tales from the Crypt aired from 1989-1996. HBO paired with major directors to adapt the infamously gruesome horror stories of legendary 1950s publisher EC Comics. It is certainly one of the top shows to add to your collection. Other choices include Twin Peaks, The Twilight Zone, The X Files, and the current popular American Horror Stories"

    "The Strain looks like it is a great show, when you combine the mind of Guillermo del Toro and anything having to do with vampires it's bound to be a great show. It is on it's fourth season, so anyone wanting to get into the show can happily binge watch."
