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.

Lovecraft Country (HBO)

We finally finish this amazing series on HBO about  black families living through the Jim Crow era and fighting not only against racism but witchcraft. Based on a book which in turn is based on H.P Lovecraft horror stories. A known racist in his time. Ain’t that a bitch?

The Umbrella Academy season 2

Alicia and I sit down to watch season 2 of this cleverly created and directed Netflix show.  Because there are so many superhero shows out, we didn’t expect the encore to be as good as the first season.

On one day in 1989, 43 infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by billionaire industrialist Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who creates the Umbrella Academy and prepares his "children" to save the world. In their teenage years, though, the family fractures and the team disbands. Fast forward to the present time, when the six surviving members of the clan reunite upon the news of Hargreeves' passing. They work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father's death,

So, Dark is a well written Sci Fi phenomenon. Even in German the complexities and time travel concepts are top notch. We pick up after the Apocalypse occurs in their small town in Germany. And a whole new sequence of events start out to uncover the true meaning behind the multidimensional love story between the two characters.

 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

Stranger Things Season 3

Once again a good day for binge watching got us to watch the entire 3rd season of Stranger things. Now, I read a few mixed reviews about this season, but for the most part I think most people had the same enthusiasm for a new season and what it would bring regardless.

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
