Product Overview

BBC brings to audiences a new supernatural horror series by 2011 Royal Television Society Award-winning writer Jack Thorne (the original UK Skins). Iain De Caestecker (Coronation Street) is Paul, a young man who is haunted by apocalyptic dreams that neither his therapist nor his best friend, Mac (Daniel Kaluuya, Skins, Sucker Punch), can provide answers for. Worse still, Paul has started seeing the Fades - the spirits of the dead - all around him. They're everywhere but normally can't be seen, heard or touched - until now. An embittered and vengeful Fade has found a way to break the barrier between the dead and the living. and Paul, Mac and their loved ones find themselves in the middle of it all. The worst is only yet to come as the fate of humanity rests in the hands of the two friends who already have enough trouble getting through a day in one piece, let alone saving the world.

Review A spooky supernatural teen drama, it pulls off humor, atmosphere, and genuine frights. While it recalls both Attack the Block and AMC's The Walking Dead (the opening credits sequence is an almost identical knockoff), The Fades stands on its own merits. As The Fades folds together its ghost story and coming of age saga elements, it allows for complications too. It's an exhilarating take on a couple of familiar genres, balancing horror, humor, and heart.

Review This is a find for anyone who likes their thrills and chills laced with ribald irreverence - the young hero's nightmares tend to result in soiled sheets, and you should see what happens when he indulges in a little self-pleasure. Let's just say an alternate title could be Touched By An "Angelic," that being the term for those precious few mortals who can see "fades" (ghosts trapped on earth) walking among us. Young Paul, played by the very likable Iain De Caestecker, is none too thrilled to learn he has this gift, although his best mate Mac (the hilarious Daniel Kaluuya), a relentlessly upbeat pop-culture junkie, thinks it's pretty cool. Mac's "previously on" recaps at the start of each episode are a hoot, much as the coming-of-age undercurrent of pungent adolescent comedy adds depth to the end-of-the-world horrors Paul confronts.
