Love this TV show. Didnt hear about it till after it finished the 2nd season.
Horror/comedy fans will love it. Some blood and alot of laughs. Great cast. Was not a Dee Snider fan until this show.
Season 3 is coming (cant wait). Not sure if it will be the same without Dave.

HASH(0x9fa492e8) out of 5 stars Horror & Humor In Holliston! Oct. 9 2012
By Rich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
"Holliston" is a fearnet original series and hits quit close to home (literally). It surrounds four friends, two of which are aspiring Horror film directors and work at a local television station and have a low budget TV show. During there struggle to make a name in horror, they are faced with alot of life's obstacles and are caught in silly scenarios. Of course there is a love story thrown in for that 'soap opera' effect, which works very well.

If you're expecting this show to be anything like Adam Green's films (Hatchet 1&2, Spiral, Frozen, etc.) then hold your horses. Although this show CLEARLY pays homage to all kinds of horror, it is a very silly sitcom. If you are a big horror fan like I am and can appreciate the comedic aspect of this show, then by all means take a look for yourself.
Another thing I love about this show is all of the "inside" jokes that some people may not understand unless you are from or are familiar with Holliston, for example the hilarious Market BASKET scene, I almost died laughing. But don't worry, there are PLENTY of laughs for everyone. If your the type that doesn't care for or laugh at 'stupid' humor, then you may not find this enjoyable. It is the type of show that does NOT take itself too seriously, it is intentionally silly and at points idiotic (dare I use that word?) LOL

The Characters are fantastic! Let me go through them ;)

Adam Green as Adam is hilarious, madly in love with horror cinema and his ex-girlfriend Corri. His character is very passionate about everything he does and reminds me of myself in some ways.

Joe Lynch as Joe, much like Adam, hilarious. He is very devoted to his best buddy and is always by his side. He is also dating Laura (see below) and there relationship is hilariously adorable!

Laura Ortiz as Laura is easily my favorite character. She's the 'lovey dovey' cute girl with a 'blonde' personality. Shes the goofy type but her heart is in the right place. One of those characters you can help but fall in love with.

Corri English as Corri plays Adams love interest/ex-girlfriend. Shes the pretty girl next door type and her character almost seems out of place sometimes, BUT it works very well and I think that's what makes her character such a great addition.

Dee Snider as Lance Rockett, I mean, c'mon. That is just a great character. He is still stuck in those 'hair metal' days and rocks those leather pant's like no tomorrow! Very delightful and takes over a scene when he enters a room!

Oderus Urungus as Oderus plays Adams imaginary friend who live's in Adam's closet and gives advice to Adam when he is in a sticky situation. Although his advice isn't always perfect, at least he tries!

And of course the show is sprinked with all types of awesome cameos, examples being Bill Mosely, Danielle Harris, Tony Todd, Seth Green, John Landis and MUCH more!

Overall, I truly enjoy this show. The energetic cast and fun filled set's give you alot to look at and admire. If you're a horror fan with a loose sense of humor, I deffinately suggest it. Or if your just a fan of sitcoms in general then I would recommend it to you as well. You won't know until you try.

HASH(0xa0e58600) out of 5 stars wonderful show, subpar blu ray Oct. 17 2012
By The Tao of Netflix - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Similar to another review posted here, I adore this show. Its fun, quirky, creative and different, a great contrast to the usual painfully artificial shows on mainstream tv. While the other review provides a great overview of the show's merits, my review focuses on the medium choice - my recommendation is to simply buy the standard definition version. I'll grant that this show is not a Hollywood production with those kind of budgets, so I'm thankful for what I get. That said, it would appear almost no work went into engineering the content for blu ray. Unfortunately, the image feels like a photo file unedited from a low quality camera - exposure is off, color saturation is weak, and overall contrast is lacking. Sound is the same, not well engineered and peaky and flat. Again, I adore this show, and you should run, not walk, to own it. Just save yourself the funds and stick with the standard definition (and this is coming from a blu ray addict).

HASH(0xa1657234) out of 5 stars Funny Show Jan. 12 2013
By B. Wasden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Holliston is a great show for fans of sitcoms and horror movies alike. There are so many references to horror movies in each episode, so if you are a die-hard horror fan you will relate to the characters. For me, the funniest part of the show is Dee Snider. Every time he is on screen, the show reaches infinite levels of hilarity. Tony Todd guest stars in an episode, playing a parody of himself. It is hilarious, and shows a different side of himself that we've never seen before. Tony Todd is famous for playing creepy roles like Candyman, and here he plays against type and shows his comedic side. There are also guest starring roles by John Landis, Danielle Harris, Kane Hodder, Seth Green, and Ray Wise in Season 1. The show isn't perfect as it does get repetitive at times, and I would have liked for there to have been more than six episodes. Still, a very good show!

HASH(0x9fe1cdc8) out of 5 stars "Horrifically Funny" Nov. 21 2012
By The Brock Lesnar of Reviewing - The Most Hated - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I love most of Adam Green's movies and didn't know he had this show on fearnet, at first I wasn't to sure if I was going to like "Holliston" but by the end of the sixth episode I was in love! Its a funny show about 2 aspiring horror film makers and their struggles to make it big with lots of horror references and cameos.

Adam Green and Joe Lynch basically play themselves along with Joe's girlfriend Laura who is an aspiring painter, Adam's imaginary friend Oderus Urungus (Dave Brockie from GWAR) who gives him advice, Adam's ex Corri who he is still madly obsessed an in love with and the duo's boss, Twisted Sister's own Dee Snider. The cast is great together as they go through Adam and Joe's day to day along with some great cameos from Bill Moseley, Danielle Harris, John Landis, Seth Green and Tony Todd. Seth and Tony have the best and funniest cameos of the bunch with Seth being a special effects guy with multiple personalities and Tony playing an ahole version of himself who shacks up with the duo while doing a new movie.

The only thing that disappointed me about "Holliston" was that it was only 6 episodes, I really hope season 2 has more because its funny as hell with a horror twist that I absolutely enjoyed. If you like comedy/horror than you will love all 6 episodes of "Holliston" season 1.

HASH(0x9f9fd900) out of 5 stars Best Show On TV. Jan. 10 2014
By Tad ODonnal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Granted, I grew up just a few towns over from Holliston, in Milford, so I'm more than familiar with the in jokes & setting, & biased.
But this show is just really funny, & you can tell the cast is having fun, not just cold acting.
You can believe these people are actually friends, not actors pretending to be friends, & that counts for a ton.
You can tell not alot of money gets put into the sets, but like "Lucky Louie", the exceptional HBO series Louis C.K. had
years back, it gives a stage element that is really appealing. You feel like you're in the room with these guys.
Dee Snider is the not-so-secret weapon....brilliant as the cable station boss/small town hair metal wannabe Lance Rockett.

If there is a season 3, I really hope we get a little more Dee. Not because of the "name" thing, but because he's genuinely funny.

Can't recommend this enough.
