More than horror this is a lighthearted show with a tinge of horror to it. Yes, you’ll get to meet all sorts of characters, ghosts, spirits, evil forces and whatnot but this one’s not going to give you nightmares like the rest. You may get some steamy dreams about Lucifer though. Don’t tell us we didn’t warn you, haha!
