Each episode investigates a different monster - using cutting edge theories, riveting eyewitness accounts, and astonishing scientific evidence behind the nightmarish creatures that frighten us, fascinate us, and haunt our darkest dreams.
Despite the dependable Mitch Pileggi(A.D Skinner from "The X-Files") taking over hosting duties from Leonard Nimoy, this 8-episode, belated update of the brilliant 1976-1982 original is just appalling; an ugly, unappealing, idiotic version from 2002. Captures none, and I mean zero, of the atmosphere, skill, and delight of the original series. I certainly don't blame Mr. Pileggi, since "The X-Files" was ending that year, but this was the kind of junk that it would mock in the humorous episodes; again, what went so wrong here?
Episodes deal with familiar topics, like vampires, werewolves, ghosts, etc., but the presentation is so shockingly inept, that it defies belief. Perhaps Leonard Nimoy knew this would be awful? At least it didn't live long!
