Tv Season Info
With beautiful production design and taut pacing, Beyond the Walls makes a nice change from the current horror/fantasy trend for flat-out gore; this is unnerving horror of the mind.
An intelligently crafted fantastique tale, Beyond the Walls conjures up an oppressive, densely atmospheric world bathed in muted, muddy colours, dimly lit by flickering candles and fragile oil lamps, which lingers long in the mind.
This is no chainsaw swinging, blood and gore horror and it takes a slow, brooding pace of more psychological horror. It works though - it's utterly terrifying and yet I couldn't stop watching.
Many ghost stories traffic in guilt, but Hadmar's immaculately designed series builds a maze from it. It disorients with its irrational spaces, teases with its impossible romance (across time & space), unnerves with its uncanny symmetries and echoes
Dream-like, imaginative, mesmerising and full of menace and wonder - Beyond the Walls is yet another diamond in the current 'golden age of TV' and deserves just as much attention as anything on Netflix, Now or Amazon.
