Almost an entire episode of Black Summer, Netflix’s new slow-burn zombie thriller, is about a single character on the run from a single zombie. The entire half hour is brimming with terrifying anxiety. It’s an unusual format but the doggedness of this drama will make it stand out from the horde of TV shows about the undead.
That doesn’t mean it’s for everyone. It caters specifically to fans of the genre who will patiently wait for Season 1 to put together its many puzzle pieces over time while providing sufficient gore as a reward
