Studies have revealed that misinterpreted eyewitness testimony accounts for around half of all wrongful convictions. The reason for this can be traced to how our brains interpret memories, which could as trace evidence be altered and lost, altered, or even destroyed in the course of time. This is why My Encounter With Evil is Netflix’s newest series, which is based almost entirely on eyewitness accounts to tell 3 terrifying and dark tales of possession.

Then, at the beginning of the show’s first episode, we are informed that “these stories are real” before we get into the specifics of what happened to the ladies and families. Are the stories authentic or are they embellished slightly? I’m not going to make opinions on anyone. However, with just a few bits of actual footage, large dramatic reenactments of the story, and a few testimonies from priests that verify the tales The content isn’t enough that can convince skeptics to become believers. It’s not to say that it wouldn’t be fascinating.

The series runs for four episodes. Each episode weaves together the stories of these women, unfolding as a real narrative, with an enormous dramatic finale at finale. The three women featured include Sully Urbina, Florencia Macias, and Andrea Viridiana Rostro Olvera. Each is introduced in episode 1that includes the entire history of their family as well as their experiences with demonic beings.

As opposed to each storytelling one story, and shifting to the next, like an episodic romp My Encounter With Evil has an intriguing narrative style, choosing to weave all three stories and skip back and forward between the 3 stories.

Unfortunately, this is an unbalanced sword. On one hand, it lets the stories remain fresh and prevent stagnation, but without becoming repetitive. However, at the same time, the way that it flits between episodes makes it difficult to keep track of the stories of various women and try to recall the specifics of each episode.

When it comes to details, My Encounter With Evil is a big fan of dramatization, and that’s one of the major flaws of this series. I love spooky tales as much as any other fan, but the manner in which My Encounter With Evil abuses its dramatic musical stings, awe-inspiring close-ups and creepy images can get boring after a time. The majority of the show is devoted to reenactments, with no real-world perspective to be found.

For instance, one of the women has confessed that she’s been in a relationship with a therapist and has suffered from trauma for some time. Her daughter – who’s haunted – is an outcast at school and is depressed. When she’s discovered with knee injuries in the in middle of the night the entire family jumps at the possibility of being confronted by ghosts. A man aged over 70 wearing the palm hat to be exact. This could be true, but nowhere does the show consider other reasons why this is the case. For instance, an iron deficiency could cause you to be easily bruised.

The nagging problems are evident all throughout the four episodes. It brings back the idea that the show is not objective, heavily relying on eyewitness accounts. You might find yourself enjoying the show, but unlike 28 Days Haunted, which is hilarious and definitely worth watching, My Encounter With Evil does not really have any merit, which is a regret. There aren’t any scares in this show; the only thing that is scary is the horrendous way that this show uses drama in its segments.
