Walter Presents… is bringing Heartless to Channel 4 for Halloween it has been announced.
The Danish supernatural thriller is set in an elite boarding school and stars Sebastian Jessen, Julie Zangenberg and Nicolaj Kopernikus. The series was created by Mikkel Munch-Fals and was previously available on All4 last year.
Twins Sofie and Sebastian are no ordinary students. They were born with a curse and carry a dark and fatal secret: in order to live, they need to suck the energy out of other people. However, if they don’t stop their sucking in time, their victims spontaneously combust and burn to ashes.
Sofie and Sebastian try to find a way to overcome their curse but their new life at the school does not make it easy for them, especially as they have to contend with ordinary roller-coaster teen emotions in addition to deep set vampiric desires. However, the siblings are not the only ones with secrets – a mystery that dates back to the year 1666 emerges, with elements of sin, life, death and mysterious powers. Could it explain the twin’s supernatural condition?
If sexy vampire thrillers are your thing, then you’ll definitely want to check Heartless out. It’s creator Mikkel Munch-Fals was the writer of The Bridge and director of The Killing.
Heartless will air on Channel 4 for the first time as a Halloween Special on 30th October 2017 at 11pm.
