Product Description

Fades, The: Season One (DVD)

]]>

Amazon.com

"Either the world ends, or we stop him." Now that's the kind of talk that sci-fi/horror/fantasy/suspense fans want to hear, and in the six episodes from this, its first season, the creepy, atmospheric British television show The Fades does plenty to back it up. "Fades" is the name concocted by series writer Jack Thorne for dead people--not just any dead people, but those who are trapped between this world and the next, doomed to walk the Earth without the ability to interact with it or its denizens. It's a bad scene, and the Fades aren't taking it lightly. Indeed, there's a movement among them, led by a ghastly creature called Polus (who uses his hideous green tongue to lick poison onto his victims' eyeballs), to come back to life, so they can touch, and kill, the unsuspecting human population. But there's hope, of course, in the form of a small group of folks called Angelics, who can see the Fades and know very well what they're up to. Principal among these is 17-year-old Paul (Iain De Caestecker), who, while completely unaware of his destiny as the series begins, soon realizes that his extraordinary powers make him mankind's best (and maybe last) chance. There are echoes of many other works here, including The Sixth Sense, Ghostbusters, Stand By Me, Night of the Living Dead, and any of the umpteen films featuring a young "chosen one" struggling to accept his or her fate; what's more, Paul's best friend Mac (the very entertaining Daniel Kaluuya) peppers nearly every line with film quotes and references. So it's derivative. But The Fades also manages to balance its scary moments, and there are plenty of them, with humor, realistic dialogue (especially between Paul and Mac), and special effects that are a bit limited but very convincing. There's a nice setup for the next season, too, as Paul's solution to the immediate problem (it involves locating an "ascension point" where the Fades can leave this world) may simply create another, even bigger threat. It will be well worth watching the next go-round. --Sam Graham
