You have devoured the 8 episodes of Archive 81 and you are now destitute and in search of new thrills. DashFUN is there for you.
Midnight Sermons – Netflix
What is it about: A community faces miraculous events and dark omens after the arrival of a mysterious priest.
The common point: A sect and mysteries
The latest creation from one of horror’s new masters Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor), Midnight Sermons slowly but surely burns away with its action set behind closed doors on an island isolated. On the program: bloody deaths, a hero in search of redemption, a priest who looks like a guru, and a very modern way of revisiting a well-known fantastic myth… But we won’t tell you more! Immerse yourself in this horrifying (and beautiful) story without further ado.
Beyond the Walls – Disney+
What is it about Lisa, a young speech therapist, moving into a house in town that she mysteriously inherited? She discovers rooms and corridors that arouse her fear. The moving house turns out to manipulate other occupants, to cross other time-spaces, the better to offer Lisa the opportunity for an initiatory journey.
The common point: The past that resurfaces
Entry into the fantastic genre of specialists in Nordic Noir made in France, Hervé Hadmar and Marc Herpoux (The Witnesses, The Forgotten), Beyond the Walls is a little gem that works its atmosphere to the point of becoming totally anxiety-provoking. As she discovers her new home, the heroine – played by Veerle Baetens (Alabama Monroe, Cheyenne, and Lola) – revisits a tortured past made up of shadows and ghosts. It’s as haunting as it is creepy!
Servant – Apple TV+
What is it about: After losing her child, Dorothy Turner uses a doll for therapeutic purposes. The situation takes a strange turn when she hires a nanny to take care of the baby. Worried about the mental health of his wife, Sean does not see the arrival of this foreigner with a very good eye. Especially since the girl’s behavior quickly turns out to be disturbing. Could the nanny become a threat? And would the Turners have things to hide?
The common point: Chills
Born under the supervision of M. Night Shyamalan (Sixth Sense, Unbreakable), Servant has all the ingredients of a horror series that does not say its name. It starts off (almost) ordinary like a classic family drama. But very quickly, the series takes a completely different turn. Gradually advancing towards the fantastic, it unfolds like a magnificent and disturbing creature that we had taken for a fragile little thing at the start. Concealing mysteries, Servant is eaten slowly but over the episodes, it is the anguish that wins.
