Web series are a difficult nut to crack. Getting people to come back to the web week after week is something that, when it’s done, will change the face of entertainment. Well, a new series, The Woods of Astrid, is going to try to keep you coming back for more…and, in my opinion, they have a real chance.
Here’s the story (so far), Sarah’s parents were murdered when she was a young girl, and she was the one to discover the bloody remains. In her angst, Sarah wanders into the woods, where she disappears. Now, after Sarah’s been missing for a week, her brother goes into the seemingly evil woods to find her…the woods where it’s rumored that a witch lives.
The Woods of Astrid is a pretty good start to what could be a great series. While the acting isn’t perfect, the story is compelling and draws you in…plus, it’s on the web and it’s free!!! I’m giving The Woods of Astrid (episode 1) 3 out of 4 cigars, it’s not perfect, but it’s just the beginning and it has all kinds of potential! You can check it out for yourself by clicking here.
