The Horror, the horror. The terror. O furor. Shackleton meets Carpenter. The British squad of acting is awfully good. No matter how good the writing may be, they elevate any words to the stars and back. Harris, Hinds and Menzies (HHM, ha: a BCS homage, perhaps?) are scary good. You've got my undivided attention gentlemen. Proceed.
AMC's best series since Halt and Catch Fire, The Terror is superbly crafted, visually stunning, and consistently gripping. This dynamic show created by the Suspiria remake scribe achieves that rare sweet spot between rewarding suspense and multi-layered character development.
Excellent series with a very respectable cast who deliver the acting chops time and time again. The story is tautly told and enthralls throughout even though the story runs on empty a couple of times. And as per usual, showing the monster is not always a good idea... Production design is very good but for me the real treat is the score from the late Marcus Fjellström.
Maybe, Ridley Scott and co. are finally beginning to understand alien =/ bad,
that fiddling with their big fat white male fingers at things they fail to understand doesn't qualify them as alien, and that their big fat white male fingers have brought more terror than harmony to the world.
Or maybe I just loved the mood too much that I am biased.
