Although telling a new story with different characters in each season, the title is not the only thing in common between the 1996 movie and the series: the snowy Minnesota location, a lot of blood, dark humor, some characters (and even their surnames), some events and even one that sets the series in the same universe as the film.
In this video I wanted to connect some of the events, characters and scenes of the movie and both seasons, to see how similar they are.
