I don’t know about you, but I am ready for a bit of horror to creep into my drama watching (not too much, though, just a teeny tiny bit). Well, it looks like I will have that in spades with Strangers From Hell which looks all sorts of creepy. Though we did get a good tip that it isn’t supernatural creepy. So I guess that means it is situational creepy? Contemporary creepy? I’ll take that.
At its simplest, Strangers from Hell (also known as Hell is Other People) is about a small town boy who moves to the big city for work and happens to take up unfortunate residence in a cheap, albeit creepy, apartment. The residents (explained more here) make the place creepy which gives a whole new meaning to resident evil and makes me think that they should have made that the name of the show. Either way, we’re recapping this puppy starting tomorrow!
