  • From the creators of the 'Blair Witch' cult film, can this creative idea of a supernatural television series that was never given a proper chance to find its own audience.

    In the early part of the 21st century, thier were several really good television shows on Fox that were killed off before their time, this was one of them.

    A creative young man sets out (with a core group of friends) to explore supernatural events, gather fact based evidence and then post it on his Freakylinks webpage. His overall goal is to find out what happened to his brother; who mysteriously died while also exploring such strange and supernatural goings-on.

    It is a cool idea, creativily executed and the ensamble cast pulls it off. Sadly, the initial ratings were not what Fox wanted and it was not given time to find its audience.moreless
