I really, really wanted to love this TV series. The Witching Hour is my favorite horror novels of all time. I actually prefer them over the Lestat novels. Alexandra Daddario was perfectly cast as the most important character.
Unfortunately, they diluted the story too much, in an attempt to fit a 1056 page book into 8 episodes. They combined two, crucial characters and destroyed a huge plot point as a result. They eliminated most of the magic for me.
In spite of being renewed for a second season, I won’t be watching past the first, free episode.
