Product Description

The first twelve episodes of the supernatural drama series set in South Carolina, in a small town called Trinity. The town's sinister sheriff, Lucas Buck (Gary Cole) holds sway over the population, dispensing 'advice' on a regular basis, but often with disastrous consequences for those involved. Into this scenario steps Buck's son, Caleb Temple (Lucas Black), unaware that Buck is his father. When Caleb's foster father dies, the ensuing custody battle brings Caleb's cousin Gail (Paige Turko) to town to protect him. One other protector, Caleb's dead sister-turned-angel Merlyn (Sarah Poulsen), helps to keep Buck's influence at bay. Episodes comprise: 'Pilot', 'A Tree Grows in Trinity', 'Eye of the Beholder', 'Damned If You Don't', 'Dead To The World', 'Meet the Beetles', 'Strong Arm Of The Law', 'Rebirth', 'Resurrector', 'Inhumanitas', 'The Plague Sower' and 'Dr. Death Takes a Holiday'.


In some ways reminiscent of David Lynch's Twin Peaks, this eerie drama series concentrated on the dark and often disturbing truths hidden beneath the surface of a small American town. Set in Trinity, South Carolina, American Gothic succeeded in its one-series run to intrigue viewers with its mysterious storylines and macabre undertones. Gary Cole heads up the cast as Sheriff Lucas Buck, Trinity's knight in shining armor. Much of the plot revolves around Buck's attempts to get closer to his illegitimate young son, Caleb Temple (Lucas Black), who has always been told that his father was a man named Gage. Inspiring the curiosity of the local doctor and other neighbours, Caleb and the sheriff become the talk of the town. The sleepy community get even more stirred up when Caleb's cousin Gail comes to town with the goal of protecting the boy. And, to complicate things, someone else also has Caleb's best interests in mind: his dead sister Merlyn, now an angel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Silly distributors 11 Sep 2009
Just a quick warning...

The idiots at Universal/UK Playback never bothered to release Volume 2.

So the only way you can see the second half of the series is by buying the complete box set edition (which has proper packaging).

This DVD set is basically redundant.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Subtitles, No Buy 18 April 2009
Oh so derivative, oh so predictable.....
Even if this was worth watching, even if it was stupendously brilliant, I would not buy it, as there are no subtitles. No subtitles, no buy...
