"Holliston" is a fearnet original series and hits quit close to home (literally). It surrounds four friends, two of which are aspiring Horror film directors and work at a local television station and have a low budget TV show. During there struggle to make a name in horror, they are faced with alot of life's obstacles and are caught in silly scenarios. Of course there is a love story thrown in for that 'soap opera' effect, which works very well.
If you're expecting this show to be anything like Adam Green's films (Hatchet 1&2, Spiral, Frozen, etc.) then hold your horses. Although this show CLEARLY pays homage to all kinds of horror, it is a very silly sitcom. If you are a big horror fan like I am and can appreciate the comedic aspect of this show, then by all means take a look for yourself.
Another thing I love about this show is all of the "inside" jokes that some people may not understand unless you are from or are familiar with Holliston, for example the hilarious Market BASKET scene, I almost died laughing. But don't worry, there are PLENTY of laughs for everyone. If your the type that doesn't care for or laugh at 'stupid' humor, then you may not find this enjoyable. It is the type of show that does NOT take itself too seriously, it is intentionally silly and at points idiotic (dare I use that word?) LOL
The Characters are fantastic! Let me go through them ;)
Adam Green as Adam is hilarious, madly in love with horror cinema and his ex-girlfriend Corri. His character is very passionate about everything he does and reminds me of myself in some ways.
Joe Lynch as Joe, much like Adam, hilarious. He is very devoted to his best buddy and is always by his side. He is also dating Laura (see below) and there relationship is hilariously adorable!
Laura Ortiz as Laura is easily my favorite character. She's the 'lovey dovey' cute girl with a 'blonde' personality. Shes the goofy type but her heart is in the right place. One of those characters you can help but fall in love with.
Corri English as Corri plays Adams love interest/ex-girlfriend. Shes the pretty girl next door type and her character almost seems out of place sometimes, BUT it works very well and I think that's what makes her character such a great addition.
Dee Snider as Lance Rockett, I mean, c'mon. That is just a great character. He is still stuck in those 'hair metal' days and rocks those leather pant's like no tomorrow! Very delightful and takes over a scene when he enters a room!
Oderus Urungus as Oderus plays Adams imaginary friend who live's in Adam's closet and gives advice to Adam when he is in a sticky situation. Although his advice isn't always perfect, at least he tries!
And of course the show is sprinked with all types of awesome cameos, examples being Bill Mosely, Danielle Harris, Tony Todd, Seth Green, John Landis and MUCH more!
Overall, I truly enjoy this show. The energetic cast and fun filled set's give you alot to look at and admire. If you're a horror fan with a loose sense of humor, I deffinately suggest it. Or if your just a fan of sitcoms in general then I would recommend it to you as well. You won't know until you try.
