If you are a scaredy-cat who gets easily scared with psychological thrillers with creepy cult practices, cold murders, and gore, then you better watch it while the sun is still up.

Hard Pill to Swallow
The teenage characters failed to make a connection to the audience. You will hardly miss them in the story. Also, the supernatural elements that were hinted during the early episodes were not explored properly.

Exam Results:


It could have been a better drama if it managed to tie all the loose ends before the finale. But the superb acting of the leads is enough to convince you to watch the series.
