The unique combination of self-contained storylines existing as part of a larger overarching mythology bridges established serialized horror programming (American Horror Story, Hemlock Grove) and traditional horror anthologies (Black Mirror, Twilight Zone.) Bound by this distinct paradigm, the episodes themselves become “characters” within the series, enabling the audience to experience the series on two different levels. #Love it!
