Interesting series, horribly annoying narrator.
Verified purchase
From a historical standpoint, this is an interesting series. That said, the narrator is enough to drive someone batty. He has the weirdest pauses in his speech, it's like listening to a computerized voice with no idea of how punctuation works or what words are supposed to sound like.

I really wanted to like this, but . . .
Verified purchase
The stories are actually good, just like the podcast. However, the horrible narration is just too distracting to the story. I want to like this, but can’t enjoy the jerky cadence of the narrator and his voice is not at all spooky or even emotive - just annoying. I made it through a whole episode and it was visually stunning. The voice over does not go throughout the whole thing - it does stop for some of the story to be told with actors recreating the narrative - which is why I gave it more than one star. That said, it does continue between these scenes, causing them to lose any effectiveness. I’m not sure I enjoy it enough to keep trying to get through the whole series. If they get a new voice over artist, then maybe I will try again.

Love the IDEA of the show
Verified purchase
Love the IDEA of the show, what it presents and even how it presents it. I cant however stand the issue of the narration being so broken. I understand that it was originally a podcast, and the sound editing was not well done, but you would think that Amazon would be even a little effort into cleaning this up.

Mahnke is always weird but it's okay I guess.
Verified purchase
I've listened to the podcast for a long time. I like the research and I like being spooked. However, Mahnke has ALWAYS been a weirdo. In the podcast he really overuses "you see...." and he loves a weird pause. The acting in the show could be better. I love Holland Roden so I liked seeing her in a new role. I watched the whole thing because I was avoiding other tasks and I couldn't get netflix and hulu on the wifi I was using. Would I watch this if I had other things to watch? No. Is it like the podcast but with less detail? Yes. Strange that they adapted it, feel like everything they covered was already on the podcast. Seems like this didn't need to be made.

First season, first two episodes hits peak, not much after.
Verified purchase
I had high hopes for this series. The first two episodes were excellent and I was intrigued and interested the entire time. Episode 3 was almost like a joke. The acting was horrible, so horrible that I lost interest in the story. Episodes 4 and 5 were even more boring and could have used a lot more of the narrator and less acting. Plus the quality of the stories seemed to really degrade. Episode 6 was a little more interesting, but overall I wasn't left with a really great feeling towards further episodes. Season 2 should be coming out soon I believe and I'm not sure if I will watch them because it feels like this series peaked after the first two episodes.

Great show and loves the stories but would be so much better with a better narrator.
Verified purchase
I really love the show and the stories but they really should have used a different narrator. I know it the guy from the original pod cast and I feel like his voice works fine on a pod cast but not a narrator over a something you are watching, it just not fluid and kind of annoying to listen too. I almost didn't watch the show at all because of how he tells the story, it like someone who can't read a script. Great show and loves the stories but would be so much better with a better narrator.

True Stories of Horror. 10/10
Verified purchase
This is an amazing documentary series for any horror/mystery fan! The best part is that they are all true stories and every episode usually has 2-3 side stories that are related to the topic. Each episode seems to be half documentary and half reenactment. The stories for season 1 were perfect (afterlife, vampires, insane asylums, dolls, and more). Being a huge horror fan, Lore is here to stay for me and is easily one of my favorite creepy documentary series! I binge watched all 6 episodes quickly and I can't wait for the next season to come out soon!

Skip, if you have already listened to the podcast
Verified purchase
I love the podcast, so I was excited for this. I thought it was going to be new stories, but all of them come from the podcast. Which is ok, if you have never heard the podcast. The animation and live action really don't add much to the stories that I had already heard. Also, it sounds like they just cut up pieces off the podcast for the narration which might be why the narration sounds odd and unnatural.

If you have already listened to the podcast, I would skip the show. If you haven't, listen to the podcast to get the full stories, it sounds much better.
