It works because Kelly has such a tight grip on the material. He clearly understands and loves the genre and knows when to up the horror - Sam's repeated visions of bloody, gaping wounds - and when the merest hint of disquiet will do.

Law... who's been one of the most fascinating actors alive since coming to TV for the title role in Paolo Sorrentino's deeply bizarre HBO drama The Young Pope, is the perfect choice to play a character that contains multitudes.

Although it's made fairly watchable by several strong star turns and some lovely visuals, the fiction... proves far less interesting than the verifiable history, layering on one unsurprising genre twist after another with almost no real visceral impact.

Episode 5 teases an ending loaded with drama, but "The Third Day" falls prey to nagging predictability just as it wows with evocative atmospherics and excellent turns from Law, Harris, Watson, and Considine.

The second segment of "Third Day" doesn't have the same level of manic, violent, urgent madness as the first, but thanks in large part to Harris' riveting work as a fiercely protective mother not to be trifled with, it's just as involving.

Heavy on portent and mood, but light on exposition and insight.

Throughout, the going is glum rather than unsettling, dull instead of brooding.

It's a rich mix of themes and intriguing details intensely played by a remarkable cast (with Considine emerging as something of an MVP by making Mr. Martin so unreadable behind his ingratiating smile).

If where we tend to end up — that, for these characters, the end of the world isn’t so very hard to distinguish from the grief they’re already feeling — isn’t wholly novel, the staging and its rawness here make you feel it anew, and provide a strong argument for giving “The Third Day” your time.
