Easy-to-binge Serial Killer Thriller
31 July 2017 | by Stovepipe99See all my reviews

This series follows Sarah, a young woman who has returned to the town (and the house!) where years earlier her parents were murdered. Her arrival seems to spark a new wave of killings by a masked murderer known as the Executioner.

This is the kind of show that is the equivalent of a page-turner. It moves the plot along at a fairly brisk pace, with scandalous murders and plot twists in each and every episode. The killings are gruesome and dramatic, and some of the actors really commit themselves to their sleazy, wicked characters. The show is at its best when it commits to the high drama and outrageous set pieces (this is the kind of show where EVERYONE goes alone to investigate clues, even when they suspect they are walking into a killer's trap).

My main issues with the show were to do with the central mystery itself. I was able to guess the killer/killers (leaving that ambiguous for you so that I don't give anything away) by the middle of the second episode, and the show doesn't do a great job of developing very many plausible suspects to begin with. This is the kind of show where the killer has "rules"--sort of--but there's a frustrating lack of consistency through the different episodes. I felt very let down by the last episode/conclusion. I also docked the show a full star for a totally obnoxious and off-putting final scene. If the final scene of the season is meant as a teaser for the second season, I will not be watching.

This is a perfect show for binge-watching, with just eight episodes and a fast-paced plot. If you watch a lot of thriller or horror movies, there isn't a lot here that is new, but it does many of the classic tricks and tropes just fine.
