The Returned: DVD Review
Released by Madman Home Entertainment
French series Les Revenants is one of the spookiest supernatural dramas committed to the small screen.
The 8 part series, which has already been commissioned for a second run, is a character driven piece set in a French mountain village where people previously thought dead start re-appearing. From a child missing in a bus crash (a freaky opening sequence) to a man's wife who died 30 years ago, this is not a zombie piece in the slightest.
By choosing to follow their reintegration into normal life, the series follows the turmoil that's instigated by their return. Spookily put together and atmospherically acted, Les Revenants is an excellent piece of genre TV that has intelligence as well as mystery.
