User Reviews

 
Reminiscent of the exorcist films....
15 January 2016 | by s3276169See all my reviews

Midwinter of the Spirit is an unsettling supernatural thriller, reminiscent of the Exorcist films.

This mini series is not as violent as the Exorcist franchise but it shares the same tense atmosphere inhabited by a creeping, scuttling, increasing intrusive, evil. An evil that leaves no place safe, not even the comfortably familiar haven, the family home.

This is a a well scripted mini series, with a good solid foundation in terms of its story and a very believable cast of characters, who hand in, often frighteningly convincing performances. Topping this off is well developed narrative that slowly draws you into the story, lending added credibility to what is an otherworldly tale.

In short Midwinter of the Spirit is a high caliber UK production that is a must watch. My advice, just don't watch it alone. Eight out of ten from me.
