Just the trailer of this series is enough to instill the fear in the audiences having weaker hearts. The dosage of horror used in this series can be perfectly guessed from the high level of horror element seen as the trailer. So, if the trailer is so much horrifying then the movie will be a high grade of horror. Also, the visual effects of these stories are good. But the story of the plots has not been completely disclosed in the trailer.

With the ensemble cast of great directors as well as a production house of RSVP, the series will be intriguing to watch. Also, the stories are unique. Also, it is difficult to guess who is living and who is a ghost in the series till the end of that part. So, the crux of the stories is mainly the horror and suspense element. And this will be helping to keep the audience till the end of the series. As the horror element is very high with a great star cast, this will attract the audience.
