TODD & THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL :
SEASONS 1 & 2 (NR)
AIRCRAFT PICTURES (2010-2012)
Starring: Alex House, Maggie Castle, Bill Turnbull, Melanie Leishman, Jason Mewes & more.
This is a Canadian show that was played on the FEARNET channel. I never got to see it then but was
able to catch the two seasons on NETFLIX. This show is a brilliant balance of Horror and Comedy.
The show almost reminded me of some of the shows they put on the SyFy channel, but done with
more comedy and better production. The story follows four high school teens who must fight off the
evil pouring out of a Satanic spell book that is dominating their school. The group is led by Todd Smith
a Heavy Metal stoner who so desperately wants to become a Rock star. He is forced to fight off all the
creatures and demons the book places in the school. There is of course the hot rebel girl, the dorky fat
kid and the nerdy (hot) girl. These are Todd's friends who help him against all the evil. They at times
get some advice and help from the janitor played by Jason Mewes (Jay from MALLRATS, CLERKS
& JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK). The group reminds me of the gang from SCOOBY
DOO as they go and solve the mysteries and fend off the evil. This show is amazing! It is an original
show with some great actors, good story lines and lots of gore, monsters, laughs and sex. I think the
show is only these two seasons and was supposed to go for a third, because the way the second season
ended was setting it up for a third. Hopefully someone will pick this show up and continue the story.
If you liked the short lived TV series REAPER, which was done by Kevin Smith, who did CLERKS,
MALLRATS & JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK, then you'll love this show too!
