Hex-Complete 1st Season (2004)
|Set in a remote English school, Hex is the chilling story of one girl's exploration of the supernatural and her own sexual awakening. Cassie is a shy student who discovers she is cursed by terrifying links to the past. Longing to be popular, but only truly loved by her best friend, Cassie realises she possesses dangerous powers. Though bewildered and terrified by the visions and voices that haunt her, Cassie can't deny that student life with mystical powers has suddenly become infinitely more interesting as she manipulates the people and situations around her.|
Stalked by Azazeal, the leader of the Nephelim, Cassie's tragic fate seems sealed when Thelma is kidnapped and sacrificed. Without her best friend, Cassie is alone, fighting against the powerful forces that threaten her existence. But Thelma returns to Cassie as a ghost, driven by love and determined to protect her from the powers that seek to destroy her.
Cassie has embarked on the ultimate journey of discovery and when the man she should fear most finds a way to her heart, it can only end in tragedy.
Editor's NoteThings are less bright in the English countryside than they are in Buffy's Sunnydale, but this BBC series is like the darker, sexier British cousin to BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. Though Cassie Hughes (Christina Cole) wants to be in the "in crowd" at her boarding school, her only friend is her Sapphic roommate Thelma (Jemima Rooper, KINKY BOOTS). She stumbles upon an ancient vase on the school grounds, but Cassie realizes she's found more than an antique when she discovers she has supernatural abilities. A fallen angel named Azazeal (Michael Fassbender, BAND OF BROTHERS) appears looking for a human sacrifice, and the drama really begins, putting both Cassie and Thelma in danger. From its opening episode, HEX deftly combines a supernatural horror series with a coming-of-age drama to create a smart show that goes beyond teenagers in its appeal. This release includes all 10 episodes of the critically acclaimed show's first season.
