With Henry Thomas, Michiel Huisman, Annabeth Gish and so many others.
A proper thrilling series. If you liked American Horror Show this might be less your alley, given the lack of amounts of blood, but it truly is a good thriller.
It strongly reminds me of the House of Spirits by Isabel Allende, it has traces of Frozen (yes, by Disney) in it, aswell as reminding of Six Feet Under and The Addams Family. The beauty of the settings and the strong storyline got me captured. It all connects and makes sense in the end, though you are quite thrown of in the beginning, because they throw some confusion around. They do that by making a ‘then’ and ‘now’, and though I’m not sure that that’s what’s supposed to happen, I’m pretty sure they did that on purpose: confusion by characters. It took me a while to figure out who was supposed to be who.
The make-up artists deserves a bloody Oscar, even though at some point, they could have tried a bit harder on Luke. If you’re wondering why he has eyeliner smeared on his cheek and lip, while they give you a thriving heart attack on several ghosts, you’re like ‘what?? This can’t be right?’ it’s like they stopped midway or something.
Other than that: bloody brilliant series. Not for the faintest of hearts, I should add. You really have to love ghost stories. I watched the entire series in silence, because yes, I’m actually that much of a wuss.
