EPIX 'From' Episode 7 Review: Horror manifests again as search for answers continue
Contains spoilers for 'From' Episode 8
After what was two episodes of hunting for answers, 'From' returns to familiar territory. The EPIX drama provides a spoonful of grisly horror and sets the tone for the remaining three epsiodes. The thriller, not shy of killing off key characters does away with father Khatri (Shaun Majumder) as one of the victims at the hands of the ghosts. It's unfortunate considering he and Boyd (Harrold Perrineau) actually come up with a plan that includes Sara Myers (Avery Konrad) to figure out a way to understand what's happening and solve the crisis they're in.
It wasn't meant to be as the ghosts seemingly kill those who come a step closer to actually figure out answers. Victor (Scott McCord), one of the oldest and first of residents is the only man who knows what's going on and he has a plan ready. In a way, that plan saves Julie (Hannah Cheramy) as she goes into the faraway tree and lands up in Victor's basement that's shown in episode 4. Jade and Kenny figuring out an image of a young Victor hidden in one of the books that the former scribbles through provides an interesting turn.
Meanwhile, the Mathews, Jim (Eion Bailey) and Tabitha (Catalina Sandino Moreno) bond while figuring out answers in their own ways. There's a plan, but the monsters seem to sense them and stay one step ahead all the time. At this point, there's no real conclusion, but the series doesn't appear to be in a hurry to solve things. Fatima (Pegah Ghafoori) and Ellis (Corteon Moore) have a near-death experience after the colony is invaded by these monsters. The storylines to focus in the days to come are Boyd and Sara, the Matthews and Julie. Only time will tell if father Khatri's plan of involving Sara and the mystery surrounding Ethan (Simon Webster) will somehow merge.
'From' manages to keep the suspense going and that is one of the bigger pluses of the horror thriller thus far. It has been compelling and teases just enough to leave the audience asking for more. We'd recommend you stick with this show till the end.
'From' airs Sunday nights at 9 pm on EPIX.
