WHAT TO WATCH AFTER
By Michael Ahr
Hellbound is the most recent Korean-language hit to make it into the U.S. Netflix Top Ten, but what should fans of international horror watch next?
We've hand-picked a selection of supernatural fantasy series that could make the perfect follow-up to the avenging angels and demons in Hellbound.
Like Hellbound, HBO’s The Leftovers starts with an incomprehensible, potentially divine metaphysical event: the sudden disappearance of 2% of the world’s population.
Another currently-airing Korean drama with genre elements is Jirisan, in which a mountain ranger sees visions of people trapped or dying on Mt. Jiri.
If you’re a fan of Hellbound creator Yeon Sangho, check out his first TV drama, The Cursed, which tells the story of a teen girl who has the ability to curse people to death.
Fans of celestial beings should try Good Omens, Amazon’s adaptation of the Neil Gaiman story of an angel and demon who ally themselves to prevent Armageddon.
Another lauded international genre offering is France’s Les Revenants, in which the deceased suddenly come home years after their deaths, with no memory of any time having passed.
There’s also BBC’s The Fades, the tale of a teenage boy who becomes entangled in a celestial battle between the living, the dead, and everybody in between.
Netflix’s Warrior Nun, a comic book adaptation with a second season on the way, tells the story of a resurrected chosen one imbued with the power to fight demons by an ancient artifact.
And if you haven’t caught Midnight Mass, the third Mike Flanagan horror offering on Netflix, check out this frightening tale of church-centric life on an isolated island.
And what supernatural TV list would be complete without the aptly named Supernatural, The CW’s 327 episodes of monster hunting and celestial battling as a family business?
