  6. The eerie black-and-white cinematography is great and captures the tone of the show very well.
  7. It has been renewed and rebooted several times and managed to keep it’s charm throughout most of it.
  8. The episodes endings are probably the best partabout the show due to them having a always having some kind of creepy and unpredictable twist.
  9. The idea of a making an anthology show that consists of nightmare fuel, creative twists and decent morals is very original.

The Only Bad Quality

  1. "The Encounter" was pulled from the network and syndication for years due to either being too violent and disturbing, or having offensive Asian stereotypes. It aired on the Sci-Fi channel in 2016.
