No matter how much we know that it’s all just a fantasy, yet we are fascinated, charmed and sometimes spooked by the supernatural world displayed on popular TV series. Whether its magic, superhuman strength or immortality, we wish to become one of the supernatural characters or hunts them down as a hunter, if given a chance.
Thanks to pop culture around the supernatural theme, the genre is quite popular among all age groups across the globe. Maybe it takes us to a whole new world of fantasy, where the only concern is how to overcome the evil and survive. Although I don’t believe in any of those supernatural beings or cultures, I often wondered where the ideas about such supernatural theme come from!
