I liked it too.

Has a Rosemary's Baby feel to it. Not sure how they will keep it up or they will have new residents every show.

Parts of it had a creepy scary movie feel. I'm not sure how they will keep up the suspense as they work their way through the whole hotel. But it was interesting.

I'm trying to figure out what genre this falls into and how far "out there" this show will be. It definitely had some macabre elements. But, is it really supernatural stuff going on, or just how the writers are spinning events to seem more bizarre than what is actually going on.

Like the one tenant who saw his wife. Did the actor from Lost conjure stuff up, or is it all in the guys head, as he is going crazy?

I watched this on Hulu today. I wonder if they're trying to make it similar to American horror story.

I thought it was OK. I'll give it a few more episodes to see how they flesh this out.

I haven't watched it yet, but the premise sounds juts like The Booth at the End. It was a web series awhile back, now it's in the second season. I would definitely suggest it to anyone who liked 666 Park Avenue, as a lot of the reviews I've also seen say it's very much alike.

I really liked this. It has some promise, but I'm afraid it'll get cancelled or get stale after awhile.

i didn't love it. i was expecting it to be more creepy and suspenseful. i do love Terry O'Quinn, so i'll give it another shot.

it does not compare to the creep factor on American Horror Story. that show had me on the edge of my seat and drew me in from the first episode.
