A dark and macabre look behind the front doors of houses with the number 9.

Matt Roush says...

Imagine The Twilight Zone as a dark farce, mocking its own genre conventions, to get a handle on this bizarre anthology series, now in its sixth short season of anything-goes storytelling. The number 9 is a vague reference point connecting each of these half-hour vignettes, which tend to mix humor and horror and shocking twists in new and original ways. First up is “Wuthering Heist,” a punny title setting the tone for an offbeat mix of crime caper and commedia dell’arte, with characters wearing elaborate masks as they enact a tale of Tarantino-worthy bloody betrayals. Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones) stars as one of the conspirators with a secret. She’s also the narrator who frequently breaks the fourth wall with asides like, “Hey, it’s series 6, you’ve got to allow for a certain artistic exhaustion.” When accused of Fleabag-ging, she corrects: “I was Miranda-ing (as in Miranda Hart).” And then she pratfalls. Trust me, you’ll laugh.
