  • Much as horror fans might revere HBO for spending good dough and hiring top-rank directors and crew members for the series, the initial results are mixed. Show More

  • Certainly, these pioneering jaunts have a stylishness and sophistication lacking in most mainstream televison shows. But at this point, for all their nifty good looks, they just aren't special or scary enough. [9 June 1989, p.C-1] Show More

  • Are they scary? Not generally. The stories exist only to make bad things happen to bad people. You can see the "twist" endings coming a mile away, but the fun is in the ghoulish glee taken in the telling. [9 June 1989, p.3D] Show More
