A terrible convoluted story line and pisspoor casting choices make this show watchable at best , certainly not very likable . The story mixes too many different psychic and supernatural elements to the point that it comes off as comical . The characters are rife with cliche and they try to tick every social justice issue . I can only hope the book was not as bad .
Casting is not all bad , but I would describe it as extremely hit and miss . Vic and her mother are only like 10 years different in real age and look like sisters . The accents of the locals in this New England town , and especially Vic's family , are all over the place . From full Boston accent to nothing . I can't complain about Zachary Quinto though , I've always thought he was creepy and colorless as an actor so he's quite good as a vampire .
The cinematography seems very well done . A+ for that .
