Summary: “Sarah Bennett’s parents were murdered by a killer known as “The Executioner” 30 years ago. Now, she returns to the quiet community of Waterbury, where the killings occurred, to start over with her husband Dylan, but upon arriving they discover that things haven’t changed much. Sarah quickly finds herself at the center of a series of murders that revolve around the seven deadly sins, which appear to be the work of “The Executioner.” But the original killer who went by that name, Tom Winston, is in prison so it can’t be him. That means somebody else is behind the mask this time around, and the perp’s true identity must be discovered to stop this latest string of murders. As long-buried secrets begin to surface, everybody around Sarah is a suspect — or a victim.”
Ahhh this show! Okay, so I had no idea what to expect with this, didn’t really read the description or anything, just saw it on Netflix and was hooked after the first scene. Do not watch this if you don’t like gore, just saying. It goes back to the old slasher horror genre but feels new and creepy. The entire season you’re left wondering who the killer is as the body count builds. From episode one, I was so sure I knew who it was. Then I’d think “oh, well maybe it’s this person” but then go back to my original guess. And then I was wrong, but it made sense and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t seen it coming.
So far it’s only one season and not (yet) renewed for a second, but it’s structured as an anthology and the plot of season two is kind of set up in the last few minutes of the finale. Looks like it’s gonna be creepy, and it better be made!
Available on Netflix.
