MTV’s foray into scripted programming has been a mixed bag of sorts. As animated shows like Daria and Beavis & Butthead are cultural icons and shows that are still relatable today. There is unintentionally consistent but gory Scream which failed to truly grab an audience. Then there’s the superior Teen Wolf, a remake television series based on the well liked Michael J. Fox film.
The television show took what was a funny if not typical teenage supernatural comedy and made it into a pulse-pounding thriller. It took the charm of the movie and made it an action-packed and masterfully told story revolving around a werewolf and his friends, both human and supernatural. The mythology that the show built upon was immense where the town they lived in was just as important as the supernatural creatures that inhabited it. In Grimm Tales Of Terror: the Bridgewater Triangle, we are taken to a town where evil lurks not only in the shadows but even in the daylight.
Welcome to the Hockomock swamp, near the town of Bridgewater, where a group of friends, are doing research on the myth and legends revolving around both surroundings, which is met with anxiety by the locals they ask. From there we’re given a tale of terror involving abandoned camps, empty cabins, and demons.
Overall, a creepy thriller that will have your skin crawling. The story by Brian Studler is tense and well characterized. The art by the creative team delivers gorgeous horror and gore. Altogether, a story that gets under your skin, leaving readers closing their eyes in the most unexpected moments.
