Helstrom (Hulu)

This was suppose to be one of those Marvel characters made for TV that would warrant a series.  Not what we thought.  Especially the last few episodes.

Daimon and Ana Helstrom are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer; the siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down the terrorizing worst of humanity.

Black Box (amazon video)

As a fan of Blumhouse films, I saw that Amazon was going to release a set of horror/Drama movie for their prime subscription.  One of these happened to be a black cast movie that had a very interesting concept with identity or your soul 

After losing his wife and memory in a car accident, a single father undergoes an agonizing experimental treatment that causes him to question who he really is

 Today I sit down and watch the second season of Netflix original series Kingdom. I couldn't wait to see the second season for this and it was another 6 part series. Once again a great fantasy period piece. Also did I say their were running zombies in here?

The Outsider

Based on Stephen King's best-selling novel of the same name, "The Outsider" begins by following an investigation which at first seems like it will be simple and straightforward but things change as it leads into the gruesome murder of a young boy by a seasoned cop. When an insidious supernatural force edges its way into the case, it leads the investigators to question everything they believe in.

It part 2 (Stephen King)

We go see the second chapter of IT.  The classic Stephen King novel plays out very well as the loser club is now all grown up.  They return back to their town to battle the dreaded Pennywise that terrorized the town many years ago.  What a good sequel

Us - Jordan Peele

We watched Peele on his show a few times and felt he was a funny dude with a creative mind.  But after seeing Get out and knowing he was one of the producers of Spike Lee's Black KKKlansman.  We couldn't wait to see his next creative project.  So with any of us knowing what this was all about.  We were looking forward to understanding this new concept of doppelgängers terrorizing a family and why.  A complicated plot and right in the middle of the new generation horror films.  This was a very good movie to watch.  Also an amazing performance by Lupita Nyong'o

Kingdom (Netflix ) Season 1

Today I sit down and watch this extraordinary horror / drama TV series made for Netflix about waring Kingdoms as well as treachery within the kingdom to obtain power.  This six episode series is intense and well worth seeing.  By the way did I say this had a bunch of zombies it as well?

Bird Box (Netflix)

As a recommendation for Alicia and I to see, we made a decision to check this out over the holidays. Compared to the box office hit “A quiet Place”. This was supposed to give you the same feel and tension of that movie. The difference with this movie is the creatures in Bird Box make you kill yourself if you see them as oppose to creatures hunting you down if you make a sound. The main highlight of this movie is Sandra Bullock performance and John Malkovich which plays his crazy self as usual
