If you were a fan of the show Lost but wanted less philosophy and more sci-fi horror elements, then From is the show for you. From is a science-fiction horror show that follows the terrors of a mysterious nightmare town run by Sheriff Boyd Stevens, played by Harold Perrineau. All those who enter the town and the unwilling residents are trapped together, fighting to keep a sense of normalcy while searching for a way out. A surrounding forest of terrifying creatures and supernatural dangers that come out when the sun goes down continues to threaten their daily existence.
The first two seasons of From were stellar. I was surprised by how good the show is, considering MGM+ doesn’t have the prestige TV reputation that networks like HBO or even Showtime have. The show works on many levels with horror and suspense elements with the townsfolk facing a nightly danger of supernatural creatures coming for them. However, the cause of supernatural elements, and how things like electricity even work is shrouded in a mystery left for the town to uncover. Every episode left me craving the next one. If you can deal with a little gore, it’s definitely worth the watch.
