Torch­wood’s Gareth David-Lloyd re­turns to Welsh weird­ness in this lo-fi hor­ror set against the bleak back­drop of Snow­do­nia. There’s a se­rial killer shear­ing wed­ding fin­gers, the rest­less spirit of a dead girl and a night ra­dio slot fea­tur­ing “North Wales’ finest psy­chic”.

The rugged, brood­ing coun­try­side is evoca­tively shot and Si­wan Mor­ris is a stand-out as a cyn­i­cal DJ. But the scat­tered plot threads never quite co­here and the in­trigu­ing premise crum­bles into run-of-the-mill slasher nas­ti­ness.

Extras None. Nick Setch­field

Pa­per jams al­ways gave Jan a nose­bleed.
