I’m always on the lookout for a new show. This past week, I’ve found one tailor-made for me and anyone who loves a gothic setting and a scary, supernatural mystery with thrills and chills.
Requiem is a Netflix original in conjunction with the BBC and stars Lydia Wilson (from Star Trek) as Matilda, a famous cellist with family issues and revolving door of strange men. When a particularly disturbing event occurs involving her mother, Matilda goes on a quest to a mysterious estate in Wales to uncover secrets from her past.
There are a lot of twists and turns, even in the first episode, so I don’t want to give too much away, but if you’re looking for a wild ride–during which you will genuinely gasp and probably even shield your eyes once or twice–this show delivers. Requiem boasts a superb cast (Brendan Coyle from Downton Abbey, Tara Fitzgerald from stage and screen, and Sian Reese-Williams from Emmerdale all give outstanding performances).
In short, this is a classy mystery/thriller/horror with lots of unexpected moments set in the gorgeous Welsh countryside. I recommend watching it … but maybe not at night … and definitely not alone.
