There are two versions of Les Revenants (The Returned), a French version which aired on Sundance, and the American version which aired on A&E. While the American version will definitely creep you out, the French version will scare you silly. The residents of a small French town are aghast when the dead return. These aren't flesh-eating zombies making their way back to the living, but people who died and come back alive and normal. But things aren't normal as strange things start happening that put the residents on edge. Could the scariest kid on television, Victor, be to blame? Les Revenants is available to stream on Netflix.
