Tv Season Info

Based on the podcast phenomenon and narrated by creator Aaron Mahnke, this haunting six-episode anthology series is brought to life by the executive producer of The Walking Dead and the executive producer of The X-Files. Throughout history, fear was best kept buried. But folklore opens the door, allowing stories to creep inside and haunt us. The scariest stories are true. -- (C) AMAZON

Adapted for television from a popular podcast - the first time I've written those words; no doubt, not the last - Aaron Mahnke's Lore is worth a look.

Such effective audio storytelling already left its mark on the podcast world, and the Amazon adaptation doesn't elevate things at all. If anything, it's less effective because you can't watch it in your car or while out for a jog.

An interesting but unspectacular addition to the horror genre, Lore, perhaps, works best in its original form.

For the most part, the stories never stand entirely on their own. They never stray far enough from Mahnke's steady narration to become an absorbing episode of television on their own.

Lore is great viewing for people who like to mesmerize (or alienate) people at cocktail parties with sinister chatter about weird happenings, even if drags at some points.

Lore reminds you how often folklore intertwined with fear of the other to keep the marginalized downtrodden. It manages to do this with surprisingly little fanfare
