Initially I thought that witches were poised to become the next big horror trend, but then American Horror Story: Coven ended on a mediocre note. Then came this behind the scenes video from the upcoming WGN series Salem. The series takes place in that infamous American colony during indeed its most infamous era, but with the added twist of suggesting that there was truly something supernatural going on there.
Frankly, after watching this overly-long EPK feature, it would appear that Salem would be lucky to be as average as Coven. Maybe I'm jaded, but the whole time I was watching this video it was as if I was observing paint-by-number instructional video for how to make a forgettable period series.
Time will tell, but I'm not holding my breath. Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think.
