This touches so many themes, but if I had to call it something, its like a supernatural, zombie thriller thats not super thrilling in parts. I actually liked the first half of the show better, thinking they would stay on theme of a "trapped" scenario.
Boring; slow pacing; terrible pay-off; predictable ending. Skip this show, it's not worth your time.
I loved the concept (as it reminded me a lot of Dead Set) but it took too long to get to the supernatural elements making it seem as though they come out of nowhere. Episode 8 (the flashback episode that explains everything) is the best episode as it does so much with the short run time whereas the rest of the episodes (especially the first half) you wonder why the characters don't do more (or at least the logical thing) in the situation they are thrown in. This being said, I found it entertaining as it tried to comment on so many relevant themes of today.
MILD SPOILERS.....Just watched ep. 5 and ok, this is starting to get silly. Pro life messages, zombies, shoehorned trans awareness message (pretty sure a trans woman would tell someone they were gonna fool around with if they hadn't had the op), bad props and makeup (the eyeballs have very obvious bubbles in them from resin casting, "blood" doesn't look like blood)...storyline is a bit cliche (a youth covered in Satanic symbols and obsessed with dark arts and a priest who has visions from God?!), RATTLING sound effects for boas - you don't even have to Google the flaw there (unless you're 4)...death obsessed blonde nurse is WAY too obvious/overacting, and now there's a big punch in the face of obvious good vs. evil "symbolism" with a guy being forced to stab someone, for absolutely no reason (seriously, it would take one person to do the killing, why get everyone to do it?!) So. Stupid. It's also, a slow burner, making it even more tedious to watch
i honestly liked the whole supernatural aspect, but they just wiped that out with the baal story
