    13-year old Rachel awakens to find herself trapped in the basement of an abandoned building. Without any memories, or even a clue as to where she could be, she wanders the building, lost and dizzy. In her search, she comes across a man covered in bandages. He introduces himself as Zack and he wields a grim-reaper like sickle.

    A strange bond is struck between them, strengthened by strange, crazy promises?

    These two, trapped in this strange building, don't know why fate has placed them there. But they will work together desperately to find a way out?

    Episode 1

    Where is she now?

    This show certainly wasn't giving anything away at the start there as it slowly uncovered the situation there. Rachel is stuck in an abandoned building shortly after being admitted to the hospital where her doctor turns out to be some mad scientist who has a collection of eyeballs in his lab. I certainly have mixed feelings here seeing that things just dragged here, but I certainly see some potential for this show as there's a lot of mysterious things going on.

    So as usual, this show enters the trial phase, and once a couple more episodes are watched I'll decide on this show.

      Very horror video game-y, but not bad considering. I'm intrigued and engaged thus far, so I hope it builds on its potential and delivers something solid, because I could see it working out pretty well if done well throughout its run.

        Episode 2

        Die another day.

        So the serial killer is Isaac Foster, or Zack for short, and while he kills, he won't kill Rachel just yet, especially not in a room with all those gravestones as this place was built for Rachel to die. Seeing how tasteless he finds this whole situation that he grabs the pickaxe and starts smashing them and inadvertently unlocking the door to the next room in the process. Lots of mystery going on here, all while Rachel and Zack are forming quite an interesting relationship there. Nevertheless, while Zack is a psychopath, he still is committed to getting out of this place and then grant Rachel's death wish.

        So I'll keep going for now, and while this was weaker than the first episode, it still has my interest.

          Re: Episode 2

          Definitely losing me. The scenario is intriguing enough, but the main characters so far are an emotionless girl and a psychotic murderer who runs around smashing graves with a pickax when he's not slicing people up with a scythe. Not the most sympathetic pair to be following through this horror setting. The video game style of it still lends some degree of engagement for the viewer going through the experience, but it's hard to feel for the people on the screen. Still worth sticking around for at least another episode.
