Curse of Sleeping Beauty

When I first came across this on Netflix and thought it was a chick flick about some guy saving a girl (the usual Sleeping beauty story). I was so wrong. It turned out to be a horror and lets just say I can’t go near shop mannequins anymore, without feeling uneasy.

This movie was actually about a man (Thomas) who is mysteriously left everything in the will of an uncle, he never even knew he had (including a house). The house turns out to be full of spirits (Jinn) and dark forces, so things quickly take a dark turn after Thomas moves in. Thomas keeps having the same dream about a beautiful women that can not be woken due to a curse. He believes she is trapped by evil spirits somewhere in his late uncles house and sets out to fight against the spirits, find his sleeping beauty and remove the curse with a kiss.

Overall I felt this movie was okay, however is not the best horror movie I’ve seen. The movie was still really really creepy (mainly due to those darn mannequins), but was not that scary. The storyline wasn’t that great either and it was slow at times. In saying this, the movie had one hell of a twist at the end, that I never seen coming.  Despite it’s short coming, it still had a lot going for it and a lot of good points, like it creepiness (I was very very creeped out after watching this movie and was pretty much on the look out for shady looking mannequins). I would say I would recommend this movie to those who don’t enjoy being terrified by a movie, but still likes watching horrors.                                        Rating 2.5/5

The OA

The OA is a Netflix serials full of mystery, excitement and wonder. I was hooked from the first episode and just had to chain watch them all. This serials is about a group of people, taken captive after experiencing their own death, traveling to another spiritual dimension and coming back to life.

Each episode gives you a little more insight into the story of how main character OA (a.k.a Prairie) regained her sight, escapes her captor, travels into the unknown and saves her fellow prisoners. If you love thrillers and shows about the unknown then this is the show for you. This is really worth the watch. I fell in love with the characters pretty quickly and the story is amazing. Its one of the best shows I’ve watched on Netflix in a while (after Stranger things of course). I could find very little wrong with the show, other than it may be confusing for those that cannot keep up with the story switching from the present to the past.

Overall this show is a great watch and is one of those shows you could easily watch from beginning to end, on a lazy weekend in the house. I really hope Netflix have a season 2 of this show because season 1 was awesome.                                                                           Rating: 5/5
