American Gothic

American Gothic

Series Description:

American Gothic was a horror series that took place in the small town of Trinity, South Carolina. The town is run by Sheriff Lucas Buck and everyone does pretty much as he tells them to do. The Sheriff has a son, Caleb, who was raised by another family. Caleb did not know that the Sheriff was his father. Then all of a sudden, the Sheriff takes interest in his son and for some reason, several of the town’s residents feel that Caleb needs to be protected from his father.



‘Someone’s at the door’ – ‘Someone’s at the door’ – ‘Someone’s at the door’

Created by Shaun Cassidy in 1995, American Gothic was one of the darkest programs shown on network television.  In the eerie town of Trinity, SC, a battle of wills is taking place.  Sheriff Lucas Buck, who is supernaturally evil, has set his sights on a young boy named Caleb Temple.  Lucas Buck killed Caleb’s sister and coaxed his father, Gage Temple, into committing suicide, leaving poor Caleb all alone, or so Lucas thought.  With the help of his cousin Gail Emory, a reporter from Charlston, and Doctor Matt Crower, Caleb, Lucas Bucks illegitimate son, is able to fight Lucas off, but Lucas won’t be denied of what is rightfully his. Even though this series only had one season it was one of the best Supernatural Series ever, the acting was good, the storyline was awesome, and it was full of suspense and drama: just to the point there was something there for the whole family to enjoy. If you never seen this series we here at SciFi Xtreme recommend that you get this series on DVD. We don’t say that lightly, we seldom recommend a series for you guys to purchase on DVD but American Gothic is truely an exception and again get this series and come back and tell us what you think, I bet you’ll love it.
