I have no idea what is going to happen next, but I reckon you would be mad to miss the next episode.

Requiem offers a few sure answers, but it leaves enough to the imagination to make it both an insightful look at human nature and a compelling piece of TV.

I find the fringe utterly mesmeric.

For all its good performances and scary happenings, the fault lies perhaps in the writing, which couldn't bring the plot elements together within the time it had left.

Dec 27, 2018 | Full Review…

We're stuck with a show that holds promise but gets bogged down in the subplot of Matilda's true identity, while the supernatural and more interesting elements get sidelined.

Dec 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Requiem is a tense, psychological horror series that is sure to satisfy any fan of the genre. If you're looking for the next Jason Voorhees or Freddy Krueger, you'll have to look elsewhere, as this series focuses on a terror that's much more cerebral.

Dec 14, 2018 | Full Review…

With a raft of well-judged performances, not least that of Sian Reese-Williams as the girl who grew up blaming herself for Carys' disappearance, Requiem returns the viewer's investment in spades.

Requiem is an intoxicating thriller that's perfectly suited for fans of the genre.

If you've seen The Wicker Man and/or Hot Fuzz, you may recognize and appreciate the tone of [its] folk horror underpinnings.

Apr 12, 2018 | Full Review…

It's not breezy, but good escapism if overripe thrills is your thing.
