Not recommended. Zero out of whatever on any scale.

A small community is plagued by a series of child abductions/murders that occur every 33 years. Its a time travel-paradox plot of the most simplistic and pedantic kind. The cast involves roughly five main charaters and an equal number of children, all of whom are narcissistic and unlikeable. The title I guess comes from the fact that it is always raining in wherever.. or maybe they shot the entire film in a day. The dialogue is tedious and the editing rivals an Ed Wood film.

I wanted to find something to like so I watched five episodes. Kept thinking that the plot had to eventually move forward, but its stuck like a soccer mom with a wheel in a ditch. The whole kids + adults + mystery thing failed in this attempt.
