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 […]

TV Series Review: Alias Grace

If I had to name my favorite TV series of 2017, I would no doubt choose “Alias Grace”, a miniseries based on a novel written by Margaret Atwood. Another series based on a Margaret Atwood novel, “The Handmaid’s Tale” is gaining a lot of popularity as of late, but don’t hesitate to try “Alias Grace” just because it gets less […]

Movie Review: Annabelle: Creation

I’ve been wanting to see the movie “Annabelle: Creation” for ages, but because my boyfriend doesn’t like horror movies, and I don’t like watching them alone, we never got around to it. Until last weekend, that is. While “Annabelle: Creation” is miles ahead of “Annabelle”, the first movie in this series,  that’s not exactly a compliment as the first movie […]

TV Series Review: Manhunt: Unabomber

Manhunt: Unabomber is an eight-part TV series that you can now watch on Netflix. As the name suggests, it’s about the FBI’s manhunt on the so-called “Unabomber”, a mysterious individual who sent bombs through the mail, targeting universities and airlines in particular (therefore gaining the nickname ‘unabomber’). Now, I’m quite obsessed with reading about and watching TV series about serial […]
