Los Espookys is going to stick out in HBO’s lineup like gratuitous gore in a B-movie. For one it’s grabbing headlines as HBO’s first crack at (mostly) Spanish language programming with English subtitles. Language shouldn't be much of a barrier, though.

The series is set in Latin America, where a group of friends with a passion for horror turn their love of the genre into a business.
