Les revenants is slow, gripping and beautifully shot. The show, also called The Returned, is unlike any zombie series I’ve already seen in that it takes place in a small French mountain community in the present day. The ghostly characters appear in human form and, fortunately, aren’t out to kill everyone in the Alps.
Les revenants is more Twin Peaks than The Walking Dead, which makes it stand out. I’m watching the entire first season before the American remake, produced by A+E, comes out.
