TV Series Review: Sophie: A Murder in West Cork

True crime is hotter than hot nowadays, and it shows looking at the enormous amount of true crime limited series Netflix has released in the past year or so. Sophie: A Murder in West Cork is one of the better series in this genre. Atmospheric and haunting, the limited series starts by introducing us to the victim. Sophie. A brilliant, […]

Movie Review: A Classic Horror Story

A Classic Horror Story is an Italian horror movie that borrows many elements from other mainstream horror movies and tries to twist and warp these elements to end up with an original plot and movie. Tries being the key word here, because A Classic Horror Story may be ambitious about its own set-up, but it ultimately lacks in nearly every […]

Movie Review: Fear Street Part 1: 1994

I grew up devouring R.L. Stine’s Fear Street novels, so naturally I had to watch Fear Street Part 1: 1994 the moment I found it on Netflix. What’s unique about this movie is that it’s the first in a trilogy and all parts were released one week after the other. It is a daring move and one that can only […]

Movie Review: Bird Box

If you’ve been anywhere near the internet for the past few weeks, then you’ve no doubt come across “Bird Box”, the new Netflix thriller featuring Sandra Bullock. It’s an internet sensation, and has even stirred a new challenge for people to go outside blindfolded and try to find their way in the dark, something I heavily do not recommend and […]

Movie Review: Winchester

Winchester is a movie supposedly-based on real events. In the plot of the movie, Sarah Winchester, heiress of the Winchester rifle business, has built her own mystery mansion, the Winchester House, with over a hundred rooms. Each day, she keeps on adding to the mansion, and a building crew is busy working on it non-stop, adding rooms and then tearing […]

TV Series Review: Requiem

Requiem is the kind of rare gem that shows up on your Netflix feed every so often and that makes you jump in delight because it’s just so good. It’s a series that pulls you in from the start featuring eerie music, paranormal happenings, and a relatable heroine who is so flawed and so lost that you can’t help but […]

TV Series Review: The Frankenstein Chronicles

The Frankenstein Chronicles feels like a mix of Penny Dreadful, that delicious, creepy Victorian supernatural drama that ultimately was one of the best shows to ever grace my TV screen, and Ripper Street, another atmospheric, tense historical series set during the Jack the Ripper murders in London. Here, in The Frankenstein Chronicles, viewers are treated to a mix of murder […]

TV Series Review: Re-Mind

The concept of Re-Mind is strange and eerie, but the TV series delivers this concept really, really well. With thirteen episodes in the first season, and a Netflix Original, you’re ready for at least a few nights of entertainment with this rare gem. I’m always amazed by how well Asian series manage to captivate their audience, and establish a mystery […]

TV Series Review: The End of the F***ing World

Ever felt like an outsider? Ever felt like you didn’t belong anywhere? That you were weird, strange…different? I’m pretty sure half of the teen population has ever felt this way. If you feel like this, or you have ever felt like this, then you should watch The End of the F***ing World, because it’s simply sublime. Tailored to those who […]

TV Series Review: The Frozen Dead

Lately, I’ve grown more and more fond of these Netflix mini-series, with six or eight episodes. I like how they take more time to tell the story than a movie would (with the series lasting about six hours total, whereas movies last only about two hours) so we get to explore the characters and their history more, and we get […]
