I don’t know why is it but every time I start watching a random show it ends up having some sort of horror aspect to it, even though such genre never interests me. Anyway, let me give you a little back story of the show The River. Directed by Oren Peli (director of Paranormal Activity) and produced by Steven Spielberg who seems to be producing every single show nowadays.

The story is about a family who for years had a show on TV where they discover the wildlife especially that of the Amazon. So the father gets lost as he went rogue on a mission, his wife and son start looking for him along with the TV crew who in exchange for paying expenses want to shoot the whole thing on camera, only to discover their father was onto some supernatural stuff, the likes of black magic.

The whole show is about looking for that father and facing the supernatural that is not certain in order to keep the show clear. To be honest so far it is a good show for people looking for something to watch, it is filled with mystery and it is different in the way it is shot where besides just regular camera’s the camera men actors who are creating this show inside this show, give a closer glimpse to the terror and add a huge level of realism to the show.

All in all, it is a good show so far for thriller enthusiast sugar coated with horror.
