Set in a dystopian future where everything taught against the ruling class is punishable by any means necessary, Nida’s (Apte) father (Zaheer) is captured for just those crimes. Sentenced to a prison where the only possible outcome is death. Years later, Nida, after being recruited by a special force, is sent as a new recruit to that same prison as a guard and interrogator, only to find it has much darker secrets.

Quotes:

“Strike the deal with your blood….. and out of the smokeless fire…. The Ghul will come….”

“The near future. The country has changed. Sectarian violence has reached crisis point. Secret detention centers are established. A military clampdown is in effect.”

“You will not know its presence…. As it takes to your group…. Awake or asleep, The nightmares will begin…”

“Finish the task… Reveal their guilt… Eat their flesh…”

Review:

This, honestly, was one of the most intense, terrifying and horrific TV series I have ever watched. It seriously is not for the faint of heart. However, it also is one of the best written, acted and directed horror series I have seen in a long time. If you get a bit squeamish at intense horror, this might not be the series for you, but if you do love to be scared and on the edge of your seat for two and a half hours, this is the one for you.

Trailer:

Where can you watch?

The three part terrifying series is streaming on Netflix now.

  2. I actually have this on my queue list on Netflix. I’ve just been very behind in my binge-watching and from what you’ve said about this series it looks like it’s right up my alley.
