The A.V. Club is quite happy with the new French TV miniseries Beyond The Walls, giving it an A- and saying that it’s “a superlative example of open-ended and imaginative storytelling that nonetheless moves at an efficient and captivating pace.” It’s also a good reason to sign up for Shudder, the horror-based streaming service oriented around curating only good things from the world of scary entertainment.
But if you’re still gun-shy about either, we have an exclusive clip from the three-part horror fantasy series below. The narrative follows Lucy, a shy and reclusive woman dealing with some personal issues, who inherits a large old house across the street from her apartment. The catch: She’s never met the man who left it to her, and there’s something strange going on inside. Without giving anything away, this two-minute excerpt gives a good sense of the vibe from the overall story, and lets you know that, whatever is really going on here, things aren’t looking good.
The entire series of Beyond The Walls is available now on the Shudder website.
