Fourteen year old Hattie Sutton is the Queen of May Day. A wreath of flowers and silky ribbons crowns her blonde hair as Hattie cycles to take catch up with the lead float in the parade. But, she never reaches the festival. Written by LA-Lawyer

Sinister style over dramatic substance
5 December 2015 | by outtahr34See all my reviews

My eyes were crossing by the third episode and I knew that there was no way to save this script. Self-indulgent acting by otherwise good actors, a script that dies quite soon after Hattie did and direction that pulled out every bit of scariness -- fish eye lenses, ultra closeups, trees waving mysteriously in the wind, scary music -- enough!! BBC is usually quite good about taking a spare three to five episodes and making for a satisfying story that would take most American series 26 episodes to complete. No more episodes would save this turkey. By the last episode, I wondered who killed the script, not who killed Hattie.
