  3. Solid Beginning

Since its chapter one of a potential serial, I didn’t really do any of the scores, but its definitely a solid start. Was getting some Kingdom Hospital/Twilight Zone vibes, where everything on the surface is just a little bit off. The nurses felt like the most unsettling aspect of the hospital we’re introduced to, lurking in the background. There’s a lot to build off here, and I see an easy path forward towards dread and unease. The relationship between the siblings also feels authentic, little idiosyncrasies in the dialogue are a nice touch. Basically, it answers the very simple question of “Do I want to read more?” Yup. I do.
