Dahmer—Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story:
The series is typically related to Ryan Murphy. It is an ancient American horror story and is frequently known to be a disturbing one. Jeffrey Dahmer is a horrific tale of one of America’s most notorious serial killers. On Netflix, we’ll see this chilling 10-part biographical drama this October. Evan Peters plays Jeffrey Dahmer. The character is so powerful and presents us with a detached outsider whose presence in every scene is powerfully unsettling.
It shouldn’t be perceived that the crime is being promoted but there is no glorification of the murderer though. In the series, the audience explores systemic failures that repeatedly allowed Dahmer to strike. The scenes of cops overlooking or excusing Dahmer’s behavior are particularly unappreciative.
Not to forget, it’s all drawn from the actual responses from law enforcement at the time. It's a scary watch and it should be noted that some people have taken issue with the way it brings Dahmer's brutal murders back into the spotlight.
Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events:
If you're a fan of mystery and thriller, A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket would be your next favorite. It is an absolutely lovely adaptation of Netflix, which brings the wacky tale to life while staying fantastically faithful to the novels.
There are three seasons and they collectively tell the full saga of the Baudelaire orphans. These are Violet, Klaus, and baby Sunny. The little human beings are left at the mercy of the conniving Count Olaf following their parents’ suspicious deaths.
Unlike the 2004 feature film adaptation, which weirdly stuffed three novels into a 1-hour 40-minute runtime, this Netflix adaption turns each novel into a two-hour-long episode, making it interesting, leaving room for all the details, explaining black comedy, jokes, and mystery that made the original novels so compelling.
Russian Doll: Season 1
In the series, Russian Doll, the lead character has all the limelight. She is Nadia and she has one very big problem, which is, time keeps breaking around her. In the first part, the role of Nadia is played by Natasha Lyonne. She is also a co-creator of the show. The twist comes when she dies at her own birthday party, only to wake up there over and over again.
The season is horror-mystery combined, where she is trapped in a Groundhog Day-style loop until she can unravel her personalized knot in the space-time band. Things become more mysterious in season two, where Nadia finds herself traveling back in time to 1982. She finds herself inhabiting the body of her own mother—currently heavily pregnant with Nadia herself.
Both seasons carefully reflect her personal and generational trauma, all without over-egging the potential for philosophical musing.
Luckiest Girl Alive:
Based on the novel of the same name written by Jessica Knoll, we see Mila Kunis starring in the movie Luckiest Girl Alive. She is known as Ani FaNelli on the screen. While she appears to have it all on the outside, Ani must confront the dark secrets and truths from her past when a crime documentary reopens those mysterious old wounds. Netflix reveals to premiere this movie on Oct 7th, 2022. Mark the date and save it in your FAYVOrite movies box.
