Terror, fear and hate make for a fiery mix in this opening story under the Them banner – a series cast in the American Horror Story mould.
This one’s called Covenant and ushers us back to Los Angeles in 1953, on the surface a dream destination for the Emorys.
Beneath the surface, though, lurks race hatred and it’s not long before the blue touch paper scorches into life.
The mix of horror and social commentary isn’t subtle but a strong cast led by Deborah Ayorinde and Ashley Thomas as the Emorys and Alison Pill and Ryan Kwanten as their neighbours gives this them-and-us story some real zeitgeisty heat.
