The trailer for “The Satan’s Hour” has an appropriately televisual high quality to it; it nearly appears like a spin-off of the U.Okay. model of that Netflix anthology collection, “Criminal,” with a little bit of timey wimey nonsense thrown in. I’ve to confess, I am a bit disenchanted that Peter Capaldi seems to be taking part in a garden-variety time-traveling fortune teller and serial killer (or one thing) and never the precise satan. I really feel like I used to be promised the satan, and all I acquired was clocks, wristwatches, and dramatic music … however perhaps the twist is that the satan is obsessive about time like Christopher Nolan. I am simply spitballing right here (and possibly doing it badly).
Within the trailer above, you can even spot Alex Ferns, who performed police commissioner Pete Savage in “The Batman” this yr. Capaldi final appeared because the Thinker in “The Suicide Squad” and because the older Siegfried Sassoon in “Benediction,” so he is comfy juggling superhero blockbusters with British biopics, and it appears like “The Satan’s Hour” may fall someplace in-between as a slice of British style fare. Here is the official synopsis for the collection through Prime Video:
Peter Capaldi (Gideon) and Jessica Raine (Lucy) star in The Satan’s Hour, a gripping psychological thriller the place Lucy’s nightmares draw her right into a hunt for a serial killer in a world the place nothing is because it appears. Watch The Satan’s Hour … coming October 28 to Prime Video.
