    Someone recommended a movie to me a few months ago, but since I deleted my browser's history and my chat logs and notes, I don't have a record of it anymore.

    Thus, I shall provide you with all the clues for you to guess it please:

    - the description is something in the lines of: "after the vanishing/disappearance of the kids in a town, a deputy sheriff searches for answers to find out what it's all about. However, the kid (protagonist) starts looking before him."

    - high IMDB score (8-9/10)
    - has a sophisticated, scientific, adventurous-sounding title
    - it's a movie series
    - involves a bunch of missing kids haunted by a monster

    - season 1, episode 1 features an opening scene where a panicked scientist at a research laboratory is running through the halls, terrified because something is following him. He reaches an elevator, looks up and gets killed by some type of unknown monster.
    Later, a bunch of kids playing a board game in the basement at night. When they go home, one of them gets followed into the woods on his bike, drops his bike and gets haunted by this unknown monster who follows him to his house, into his tool shed garden house. The monster's name is 'Daechadron' or something (a tri-headed monster that looks like an alien from aliens or the spider zombie from the game '7 days to die'). The kids continue to search for their friend after his disappearance the previous night.
    In another scene, a hungry, bald, 7 year old girl - whose history is unknown - shows up and steals the fries off the kitchen of a diner. Some big bald guy (the owner) catches her and asks her for her story in return for food. Somewhere later in an episode, scientists investigate the area of the crime (where the scientist got killed by the monster) and they find slime all over a wall in a lab.

    - I'm not sure if the title has "the adventures of" or "Dr." in it
    - recent (2008-2016 era)
    - scientific experiment involving a monster who keeps going after kids
    - involves a lazy deputy sheriff/mayor who doesn't take it all too serious in the beginning

    Meanwhile I'll keep looking, but I have been searching for some hours now.
    Thank you.

    I've only watched the first episode and I can tell you I think it's good, based on the following characteristics:

    - good story
    - great suspense that leaves you wondering the whole time
    - good acting
    - good cast that stays in character
    - good theme

    Clearly you do or you a) wouldn't have made a thread about it and b) wouldn't have replied to me.

    It's bloody fantastic. If your a fan of movies or tv or anything really, I'd highly recommended it. It's available on Netflix right now with a 2nd season in production.
