Topping in at a perfectly designed three episodes this French mini-serial is a cerebral circular trip into a dimensional rift in an abandoned mansion inherited by the lead character. Balanced dark and heartfelt storytelling combined with intellectual horror makes for a paced psychodrama.
Subtly directed and shot so as to not blatantly build up the viewer for a jump scare and patiently scored to achieve further of the same. Although not a fast-paced thriller or classic American horror film / series, Beyond The Walls delivers in a way that many local viewers may find boring or slow - not the case at all for those viewers who are more intellectually inclined to understand the horror genre is not only jump scares and slashers.
A recommended binge watch when you have a few hours laid up on the couch or stuck in transit.
