The drama and suspense show was initially released on March 18, 2020, and it showcases two police officers, Sonny Cruz and Alice Lagaac, who investigate suspicious tape made by a lady that disappeared some years back. They are eventually caught up with an occult that haunts them.
Since its release, fans have been hailing the praises of iWant’s original series, demanding a sequel. Philippine viewers have claimed that The Tapes is one of the best shows, thus setting a strong debut to the international audience.
What to Expect From the Series?
Bradley Liew, who also created the horror movie Motel Acacia has really outdone himself with this iWant production. From a cult, black magic, murder to time-travel, the thrill will leave you glued to your screen for hours on end.
