Psychological horror in summer: At the start of the new “Mystery” series, ZDF shows a psychological thriller classic and even has a free TV premiere.


Thrill on ZDF: In the coming weeks, the broadcaster will be presenting one of four feature films in a new “Mystery” series every Wednesday. The psychological thriller kicks off on July 15th at 11:15 p.m. “The Visit” by director M. Night Shyamalan (“The Sixth Sense”, “The Village”):

Siblings Tyler (Ed Oxenbould) and Becca (Olivia DeJonge) visit their grandparents in Pennsylvania for the first time. Why her mother broke off contact with them at the time is a mystery to the siblings … after all, they are warmly welcomed with homemade cookies and allowed to let off steam on the remote farm. There is only one rule: From half past nine in the evening, Becca and Tyler should not leave their room together. They quickly realize that their grandparents are not as harmless as it seems.

A highlight of the “Mystery” series is the free TV premiere of the science fiction thriller “Anon – With the Killer’s Eyes” by director Andrew Niccol on Wednesday July 22nd at 11:30 p.m. The leading roles in the sci-fi flick are Clive Owen and Amanda Seyfried.

Night Shyamalan’s psychological thriller on Wednesday, August 5 at 11:15 p.m. “Split” with James McAvoy.
