  • The Terror

    The Terror

    ★★★★½

    Bleak, hostile and atmospheric, this true-story inspired recreation of the past is brought to life with a few twists and turns that tap into a rarely explored mythology as the slow descent into horror begins and a sense of dread is developed, paving way for arguably the best horror series since the first season of The Walking Dead, which it's clearly better than.
