There Has Never Been A Horror Themed TV Show Quite Like 'In The Flesh'


Horror themed TV shows have been taking over the airwaves for the past few years. The Walking Dead is one of the highest rated shows on any network. The Following, Grimm, True Blood, Being Human, and Supernatural are all similarly based in the world of horror and macabre. But none of these shows have the crazy ass premise of BBC Three's newest series, 'In The Flesh'. The show revolves around Kiernan, a teenage boy who had succumbed to the zombie plague spreading throughout England. The key word in that sentence is HAD SUCCUMBED... as in he has be cured. The government has figured out how to cure people infected by the plague, and after applying the cure and reconditioning the subject they are about to be re-entered into society. But there is only one problem... while the cure does work, it is not without its side effects. Kieran has flashbacks to the horrors that occurred when he was a flesh eater, and his looks aren't exactly what they were back before his infection. This is a very bold undertaking and a fresh perspective on the zombie genre that I am really eager to see played out. The show begins airing on March 17th, so set your DVRs. Check out the trailer after the jump...
