‘The Returned’ Season 2 Review: Haunting French Horror Finds New Twists

Halt: If you haven’t watched Season 1 of The Returned, it’s streaming on Netflix and is only 8 episodes; get on it! And if you watched Season 1 of A&E’s version, here’s a guide to who’s who in the French series, as well as a Season 1 catchup.

At this point, though, it feels like those shows poke at the same point in our psyches. But the French import Les Revenants (a.k.a. The Returned ), which premieres tonight on Sundance Channel at 9 p.m., takes a wholly different approach, one that doesn't go for scary or sexy. Les Revenants is uncanny.  Read More... //
