Servant – TV series (2019)

I chose to watch this because of M Night Shyamalan’s name. The promo was promising, creepy and interesting.

The viewing experience didn’t translate into the expectation. Peppered with some well acted and crafted scenes, the story builds too slowly for a ten episode series.

The basic premise is freaky, but is soon dismantled by vague plots and unexplained twists. I am all for suspense, but the audience needs a thread to hold on to.

No conclusion in the end made it a betrayal for the viewer, which was mildly compensated by the mood, tone and background score.
