Marianne – The French Horror Flick that brought exorcisms back on the table

OMG! I binge watched “Marianne” today and it was freaking scary. Perfect for the upcoming Halloween! I’m talking really scary due to the well used horror tropes: elderly possessed woman (like The Skeleton Key) Creepy children Scary dreams Demons! Falling teeth one hanged woman Slowly walking bloodied bodies I think what really got me wasContinue reading “Marianne – The French Horror Flick that brought exorcisms back on the table”

Fleabag – Or the story of a witty girl with a possible sex addiction

Bingewatched a show again. This time it was Amazon’s “Fleabag” and man, it gave me some feels at the end of it. Real feels. I got all emotional and teary-eyed. The story of a dysfunctional 30 year old, laid bare for the world to see. For anyone a bit messed up by life the writerContinue reading “Fleabag – Or the story of a witty girl with a possible sex addiction”

Fleabag – The after awards bar speech about menopause

Listen, I was in an aeroplane the other day and I realised… Well, I… I mean, I’ve been longing to say this out loud. Women are born with pain built in. It’s our physical destiny. Period pains, sore boobs, childbirth, you know. We carry it within ourselves throughout our lives. Men don’t. They have to seek itContinue reading “Fleabag – The after awards bar speech about menopause”

Love, Death and Robots and how it took the Internet by storm. Digital Storm!

I am in absolute awe what this show has accomplished. Each episode (varying from 8 to 18min in length) is a piece of art with a lovely story and a twist that leaves you hanging. The humour is crude, the penises are on display and the jokes keep rolling. From existential meditation of humankind asContinue reading “Love, Death and Robots and how it took the Internet by storm. Digital Storm!”

The Haunting of Hill House or a series more about mental illness than about ghosts

This is our forever house. It always was. Nothing bad will ever touch them ever again. Nothing good will, either. I saw something new on my Netflix list – a series with a title similar to one of the most horrifying horror books I’ve ever laid my hands on. And since it’s October and SpookfestContinue reading “The Haunting of Hill House or a series more about mental illness than about ghosts”

This is Us – The Game Plan episode that made me think

I have a confession. I binge watch shows that I like. And when I discovered an 8.8 imdb rated show with three seasons, I couldn’t help myself so I indulged in this lovely pastime. After seeing the muck-up that the Manny did with explaining to young-uns that everyone dies (including their parents and themselves), heContinue reading “This is Us – The Game Plan episode that made me think”

Ozark Season 2 – The Langmore admission letter

“An undercurrent of savagery pervaded my life long before the violence truly began. My dad made grand theft auto seem like a good career path, like we were entrepreneurs in a start-up. Only our start-up was the motor of someone else’s car or truck or boat.” “My childhood traumas are not like yours. My mother’sContinue reading “Ozark Season 2 – The Langmore admission letter”
