Review of "Superstition" 10/27/17 by Suzanne
Airs Fridays, 10/9c on Syfy.

This is a supernatural show, set in a small town near New Orleans. Mario Van Peebles stars as the funeral director, Isaac Hastings, who also hunts down demons. The demons are called "infernals," and they've come back strong because of Friday the 13th. His son, Calvin, has returned from the war, ready to fight more Infernals. He had a falling out with his father when he was younger, after he inadvertently got his younger brother killed. The special effects are pretty good, but the show seems a little bit low budget, like some Syfy movies. The story is familiar if you've watched shows like "Supernatural" or "Constantine," but the twist is that the Hastings family is African American, which gives it an interesting twist that we really haven't seen before on TV.

The first episode was interesting, and the ending was quite shocking. It was enough to make me tune in to the second episode, to see how they deal with what happened. Incidentally, Van Peebles is also director, producer, co-creator and writer of the show. You can read my interview with him.


“Superstition” centers around the Hastings family, owners of the only funeral home in the mysterious town of La Rochelle, Georgia. The family also acts as the keepers of the town’s dark secrets and history. Known for its haunted houses, elevated graveyards, odd townsfolk, and rich history of unusual phenomena, the town is also a “landing patch” for the world’s darkest manifestations of fear, guided into the world by an ancient, mysterious malefactor. XLrator Media’s Barry Gordon and MVPTV’s Mario Van Peebles (“Roots,” “Bloodline,” “Hand of God,” “Empire,” “Lost”) will produce, and Van Peebles will also write, direct and star in some of the episodes. Joel Anderson Thompson (“Battlestar Galactica,” “Boomtown,” “House M.D.”) has been tapped as showrunner and Laurence Andries (“Alias,” “Six Feet Under,” “Supernatural,” “The Pacific”) will executive produce.
