The teacher was so creepy but charming! I loved his character, even though I also wanted to stay very far away from him and protect the students from him. I really enjoyed this drama and even though the ending was a TINY bit predictable, I would still rewatch this one if I wanted a bit of creepy to liven up my night :D

I liked the acting, and they behaved pretty much appropriately for high school kids. Making mistakes, dealing with insecurity, putting up a front to cover up insecurity, all things I did in school and can relate to.

I don't know if this counts as spoilers but if it does I'm very sorry! This next part I really, really liked and wanted to talk about so I tried to keep it vague.

The third girl was my favorite, the writer. She wrote her fantasy, something I think all of us has done before and then realized how horrible it is in real life to have that kind of person with you. It says a lot about YA romance and how the perfect guy is sold to us in those types of books and tv shows. It also shows how much she doesn't know about writing characters that have more depth than the shallow, shiny parts. I feel like if I had seen something like this when I was 14, I wouldn't have had such crazy expectations in high school. I partially blame hormones and the fact guys at that age were annoying as heck, but I wasted too much time trying to be perfect so I could 'earn' my perfect guy and that just isn't reality. I know now how silly I was, but it was fun to see that in a character on the show.

I usually watch very girly romantic dramas which are full of clichés. Nothing struck my interest at that moment so I started watching Nightmare Teacher to have a change of pace.

The concept sounded great. I loved the idea of a creepy high school horror/suspense drama. The idea of a somewhat demonic teacher had me excited to watch this show. The first two or three episodes got me started and I wasn't too enthralled but decided to continue watching nonetheless.

The disappointment ended up being as great as the idea of this drama. I thought it would build with every episode, but the suspense stagnates beyond the first few episodes and the plot becomes predictable. Thankfully, each episode is short. I continued watching after a while because I could do other things at the same time and not really miss anything of the plot. I also really wanted to know the ending, I thought it might pick up towards the finale. It didn't. Flat 'til the very end.

I liked the music the most in this series. While it lacked originality, it's well placed, eerie and helps build the tiny bit of tension I felt during the episodes

The actors are lacking the depth needed to have the viewer sit on the edge of their chair. It's lackluster and I think it doesn't help build up the intensity such a series would need to be great.

I think with a bit of work on the script and better actors this could definitely be a show worth watching.
