“I didn’t think people met people in real life anymore…”
Fresh released on March 4th 2022 on Hulu. The horror thriller film stars Daisy Edgar-Jones, Sebastian Stan, Jonica T. Gibbs and Dayo Okeniyi. It runs for an hour and fifty-four minutes.
Noa is frustrated with the virtual dating scene and is surprised when she meets a cute stranger at the grocery store. After hitting it off with him rather quickly, she agrees to go on a weekend trip with him, only to discover that he has something else in mind.
Here is the trailer:
Fresh finds the right balance between horror and dark comedy to really make this one stand out. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…
Draws you in right away…
As soon as I pressed play on this one I was completely hooked. I connected with the character and thought the setup was interesting and relevant in today’s world. As the true intention of the movie became apparent, I was completely glued to the screen and I couldn’t look away…even though things transformed into something beyond horrifying.
Dark humor and charm.
I personally loved the use of dark humor and charm in this one. There were a lot of really disturbing moments so this helped balance things out in a good way. The film had an American Psycho sort of vibe with some sprinkles of You as well.
This film really scared me in a lot of ways because it’s something that could actually happen and it makes you really think about the world we live in and the strangers we come across each and every day. As a warning, this film is not for those with a weak stomach. There were a lot of cringe-worthy moments that made me lose my own appetite.
And yet I still couldn’t look away…
Some unanswered questions…
There were some plot-holes in this one and I was left with a few questions after everything was said and done. That being said, there were plenty of twists and reveals that were very well done.
So am I in or out?
Stomach-turning horror balanced out with charm and dark humor. Hulu is really delivering with its latest horror-thriller films. This film was really unique and terrifying with a fantastic cast. More please!

DON’T TAKE THE JOB…
It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.
