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!Read more ›
Adam Green and Joe Lynch basically play themselves along with Joe's girlfriend Laura who is an aspiring painter, Adam's imaginary friend Oderus Urungus (Dave Brockie from GWAR) who gives him advice, Adam's ex Corri who he is still madly obsessed an in love with and the duo's boss, Twisted Sister's own Dee Snider. The cast is great together as they go through Adam and Joe's day to day along with some great cameos from Bill Moseley, Danielle Harris, John Landis, Seth Green and Tony Todd. Seth and Tony have the best and funniest cameos of the bunch with Seth being a special effects guy with multiple personalities and Tony playing an ahole version of himself who shacks up with the duo while doing a new movie.
The only thing that disappointed me about "Holliston" was that it was only 6 episodes, I really hope season 2 has more because its funny as hell with a horror twist that I absolutely enjoyed. If you like comedy/horror than you will love all 6 episodes of "Holliston" season 1.
But this show is just really funny, & you can tell the cast is having fun, not just cold acting.
You can believe these people are actually friends, not actors pretending to be friends, & that counts for a ton.
You can tell not alot of money gets put into the sets, but like "Lucky Louie", the exceptional HBO series Louis C.K. had
years back, it gives a stage element that is really appealing. You feel like you're in the room with these guys.
Dee Snider is the not-so-secret weapon....brilliant as the cable station boss/small town hair metal wannabe Lance Rockett.
If there is a season 3, I really hope we get a little more Dee. Not because of the "name" thing, but because he's genuinely funny.
Can't recommend this enough.
