| You won't lose your sleep...but you'll be quite entertained anyway!
We all grew up hearing the same classic horror stories written by famous authors such as Edgar Allan Poe and Ray Bradbury. Yet... we don't seem to get tired of them, do we?. Well, 'Historias para no dormir' demonstrates that even if we have already seen these stories before, that doesn't really mean that we won't find any interest in seeing them again. The main reason why this show can captivate many horror lovers nowadays, is mostly because of the beautiful display of Gothic imagery. It's a fact that sometimes it's all about the right atmosphere and imagery. Narciso Ibañez Serrador, the creator of the show, achieves admirable results with some of the most famous horror tales such as 'The Raven', 'The Cask of Amontillado' and 'The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar' among others. The music composed by Pedro Baldie and Waldo de los Rios creates the perfect dark and sinister atmosphere that should accompany what is seen on the screen. The background music is repeated in several different episodes, which could be considered as a lack of effort by some people. Personally, I think that is not exactly a bad thing. It is in some way emblematic and why not use the same music for different episodes when it is so well composed?.

"Historias para no dormir" is the right choice for anyone who is in the mood to sit back, relax and enjoy a nice display of dark imagery, atmospheric, bone-chilling music and simple stories that will reach you, even though you have probably heard about them before. Science fiction and comedy lovers are welcome to give it a chance as well, since this show also has room for them in many episodes.
