Dead by Dawn
Nature is scarier than anything else on the planet. And it’s under the microscope in brand-new six-episode National Geographic doccie series Dead By Dawn.
Firstly, it’s made by the guys who work for Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman – so you know that it’s done properly. Ultra high-def camera work. Perfect shots. Descriptive, informative, direct narration from James R Baylis. Even if you’re not a nature doccie fan, this is a seriously good series to watch.
Bats, snakes, mice, rats, owls, eagles, spiders, reptiles, mammals, carnivores – they’re all here in glorious and gory detail, showing just how ruthless nature can be. It really is survival of the fittest and Dead By Dawn tells that story with so much enthusiastic glee that you forget you’re watching some of nature’s most perfect killers do what they do best: kill.
“The makers of Dead By Dawn are no doubt fans of horror cinema, as the very real footage is always shot and edited to evoke the feeling that you’re watching nature’s own horror movie. And it makes for riveting, terrifying and suspenseful television,” writes John Squires of bloody-disgusting.com.
