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: 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 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 […]

TV Series Review: A Series of Unfortunate Events

I have to admit two things I’m slightly ashamed of. First, I’ve never read Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. Considering how much I read and how enjoyable this series sounds (gothic elements, two kids in the starring roles, focusing on books and literature and witty humor) and how it sounds like the kind of books I’d absolutely love, […]
