If you haven’t signed up for Shudder yet, you really should. For about five bucks a month, you get access to a vast and seriously well-curated library of horror films which are divided into often hilariously specific subcategories to make sure you find exactly what you’re looking for. This sounds like an ad, but I really just think it’s something everyone should check out.
Shudder has recently stepped into he acquisition game. That now includes the supernatural mini-series Behind the Walls, which sounds pretty cool. Here’s a synopsis:
30-year-old Lisa's fate takes a dramatic turn the day she inherits a mysterious uninhabited old house left to her in the will of its deceased former owner. Fascinated, Lisa moves into the house without any inkling of the mysteries that await her.
One night, awakened by anguished cries, Lisa tears down the walls of the house and and discovers a bizarre parallel world existing behind them. Attempting to find her way back to the real world, Lisa meets Julian, a soldier seemingly from a different era. As they try to survive the myriad of grim creatures that lurk in the shadows, both Lisa and Julian realise they have something in common: A lingering guilt over the tragic death of a loved one. And it won't be long before those loved ones reappear to haunt their lives again…
BEYOND THE WALLS is a mesmerising supernatural thriller from the creators of Witnesses [LES TEMOINS]. An international cast led by Veerle Baetens (Best actress Magritte 2016 for My Men – Best actress European Film Awards and Tribeca Film Festival 2013 for The Broken Circle Breakdown) and Geraldine Chaplin (Doctor Zhivago, The Impossible, Sand Dollars), the series takes viewers on a frightening and mysterious adventure, into a world where old wounds never heal.
Shudder also acquired the North American rights to Sadako vs. Kayako, which is all about J-Horror mainstays fighting it out. So they obviously know quality when they see it. Beyond the Walls should become available to Shudder subscribers this fall.
