The Way Out
12 October 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

With the chaos around them, it is Nadia with her computing knowledge who provides a plausible explanation of what is going on. The orange might be rotting from the outside but slice it in two, it is ripe inside. Time is moving differently.

However each time, Nadia resets back to the bathroom at her party, there are less and less people. It looks like people are disappearing.

Nadia is haunted by her childhood memories and her mother's breakdown.

Alan resolves to be a better person and explains to Beatrice that he failed to see the signs that their relationship was in trouble.

A clever, troubling and enthralling episode with splatterings of blood and horror. The flashbacks to Nadia's childhood with her mother obsessed with buying watermelons has touch of Kubrick about it.
