On the other side of the institute' wants to be the successor of 'Nightmares'

'Nightmares' was an incredibly popular literary franchise during the 90s, to the point of giving rise to a television series of up to four seasons that marked many kids of the time. Behind her was the writer RL Stine , the same author behind the saga of comics that have served as inspiration for 'On the other side of the institute' , a series that Disney + premiered on October 13.

The truth is that 'On the other side of the institute' has not made too much noise with its landing at Disney +, something that may be due to the fact that it tries to mix two elements that a priori should not marry well. And it is that her attempt to become a contemporary heiress of 'Nightmares' is noticeable, but at the same time her most sinister side is reduced to the minimum expression in benefit of one more tone in the line of a series in real image of Disney Channel .


Flying low

The first season of 'On the other side of the institute' consists of eight self-concluding and complementary stories , since beyond the fantastic as a common nexus, there are no unnecessary repetitions of one to another. Well, all of them have quite obvious morals that you see yourself coming from afar, both when the resolution is friendlier for its protagonists and when things are a bit more complicated.

This means that 'On the other side of the institute' has much of a moral tale, opting for softer approaches to premises that could have been developed much more in another way. There I suspect that there will be viewers who end up somewhat frustrated by how obvious it can be, reducing the fantastic element in most cases to being nothing more than the pretext rather than the motivation behind the story.

There is some exception that does play a little more with its premise but without ever twisting it. Interestingly, the two episodes that stand out the most are both signed by David Katzenberg , but with different approaches. On the one hand we have 'My Monster', the only one from the entire first season of 'On the other side of the institute' that takes advantage of the most terrifying side of its history, while 'Planting a face' is more direct and exaggerated, but knows how to move successfully in quicksand.
