5.0 out of 5 stars What started it all!, 4 Jan. 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Returned [DVD] (DVD)
Firstly, this DVD is the original film which inspired the BBC4 series in 2013. On that premise, it is a stand alone story, and, in my opinion, shouldn't be compared with the more recent series, which I loved. I can understand why there are so many conflicting reviews here.
This film, in its own right, was intriguing from start to finish. I wondered if it might shed some light on the story arcs in the series, but after the first 30 minutes, I realised that it is its own story, and in turn, has raised more questions!
It's not a typical 'zombie' film - there are no blood and guts. The horror is more psychological, and as one reviewer has mentioned, makes you wonder how YOU might react if one of your loved ones 'returned'. Another reviewer mentions that there don't seem to be any clues, or hidden arcs, which I agree with - just watch and enjoy! But don't bother if you don't like to think about what you're watching or are expecting action/horror etc. I don't mean that disrespectfully, but I don't want people to have expectations about this film which are misleading!
