MAJOR Spoiler Alert
For those who have not seen this Series at all yet. THIS REVIEW HAS EXTREME MAJOR SPOILER ABOUT THE STORY LINE SO DON’T CLICK THE LINK IF YOU HAVEN’T SEE IT YET!
I GIVE YOU THE STORY LINE OF THE SHOW. IF YOU LIKE TO BE SPOILED than you’ve come to the right place IF NOT THEN PLEASE LEAVE NOW BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER.
The Fans Synopsis of the actual story line PLUS THE REVIEW:
Flashback to about 30 years ago we find out a baby is born Halloween day. The parents are killed by a killer who is eating a mask and dressed like what a hanging executioner of the early years of what they’d look like in the Salem witch trials. We don’t know who the executioner is until he unmask himself holding the baby. We don’t know his name right away.
We later on that it was Tom Winston is responsible and we don’t know what our why he killed this babies parents.
Everything unravels story wise when we flash forward to the baby who is now grown up 30 years later returns to the house and the town where her parents are murdered. She goes by the name Sarah (which to me as a personal aspect interesting because to survive with no parents and return to the murder location is ballsy but that’s what most Sarah’s do, face pain head on even if it’s really difficult to deal with or hear).
It must be done in order to face those demons we can’t bury away.
We learn the return of Sarah the murders start again and everyone pays for their sins (based on the 7 deadly sins according to the Bible). We don’t know who the executioner is but the suspect pool gets large and when we find out who we think it may be, we get thrown for a loop of who it may be and they end up dying or escaping the wrath of this psycho. One by one the sinners on this executioner’s list tells why some live and some die depending on what secret they’ve been harvesting 30 years since Sarah leaves Waterbury.
We learn that the Executioner kills again only to finish the job started by Tom Winston since Sarah’s return.
We find out that the quiet town folks had done some terrible things and they became the town’s price for their secrets.
We finally almost had Sarah die and we find out Dylan who is Sarah’s husband did a story on her to be intrigued by her life all along and dated her for his big break only to fall on love with her.
We find out though with potential suspect is Cam who in turns to be the Executioner because he wants to clean up the sins of the town. He dies in the end with Sarah killing him slowly with Cam the Executioner’s knife after Sarah does her own digging in something she discovers memories wise. We learn he does this because he loves her in his own twisted way but pays the ultimate price.
Just like the beginning of Sarah and Dylan leave town, the house and things.
Only to find out the house is cursed and this little blond girl kills a cat on the yard.
If there’s a second season of this I would like to know if that little girl is connected in any way to Cam’s family or any body who is psychotic in that town. Possibly Tom Winston. There is so many questions about this after what we think is over isn’t.
Thank you for bringing Clue to life Shaftesbury and Smokebomb. Chiller TV.
Great first season. Thanks for having a Sarah in your story line because writing a Sarah in a show or series brings monumental meaning to life with intrigue and survival.
Thank you Jessica Sipos who played June for favoriting all my Tweets during this First Season. Special honors also go out to Ms. Heights for also favoriting my tweet by recognizing her at the end.
Thank you to Katie McGrath, Brandon Jay McLaren, Steve Byers, Christopher Jacot and all the all star cast who’s lives were spared or not in their which I Series from shows like Degrassi, Killjoys, etc. for being in a suspense horror thriller like this one. Also thank you for appearing to this series Natasha Negovanlis, Elise Bauman and Paige Heights from the Carmilla Series.
I give this show 9/10 because of the full on perplexity and completeness of not being a cheesy horror movie or shows but having a actual story line; which I respect!
