Lisa (Veerle Baetens), a lonely doctor, inherits a large, mysterious home after the death of a neighbor in which she has never met. Upon moving into her enigmatic new mansion she is drawn to the location of where the previous owner’s body lie unnoticed for 30 years. Determined to understand the meaning behind the house she inherited from an apparent stranger, she begins turning up more questions than answers as she finds herself in another realm beyond the walls. Lost in an endless labyrinth of rooms and being hunted by a mysterious tribe, Lisa soon finds she’s not the only victim this house has claimed.
Absolutely unexpected and beautifully haunting, this French miniseries is guaranteed to suck you in to the very horror of Beyond the Walls. Available exclusively on Shudder, this short series consists of three parts with a total run time of around two hours and 40 minutes. If you don’t have the Shudder streaming service – or know what it is – it’s a streaming service exclusive to the horror genre. Apart from this series they have an incredible selection of films, TV shows, and documentaries for horror fiends to binge out on. Even if you aren’t a huge horror buff but are dying to see what all the praise over Beyond the Walls is about, that’s not a problem as Shudder is extremely affordable, always running specials and keeping costs low, I was able to get my first month of Shudder for only $1 after regular promos.
Bittersweet, sexy and absolutely satisfying. If you are looking for something dark and deeply mystifying then look no further than Hervé Hadmar and Marc Herpoux’s three part insta-classic, Beyond the Walls.
Available exclusively on Shudder.
Time commitment: 3 episodes
