Spoiler-Free Review of “Vampire Academy” on Peacock: A Better Adaptation This Time Around

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“The spark of revolution can come from anywhere…”

Vampire Academy released on Peacock on September 15th 2022. The YA vampire series (based on the novels of the same name) will have ten episodes in total. Four of them are available to stream now. It stars Daniela Nieves, Sisi Stringer, Kieron Moore, and J. August Richards.

The series follows the friendship between Rose and Lissa, who live in an elite vampire society where guardians and royals aren’t supposed to be so close with new threats emerging.

Here is the trailer:

Vampire Academy takes another stab at adapting this popular series onto the screen with the team behind The Vampire Diaries, but is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Gets things right this time around…

I’ve read the series and while I enjoyed the film, I wanted a lot more from it. I think fans of the book series will be pleased with this version, which already feels like a much more satisfying adaptation.

There is believable chemistry and a solid friendship between Rose and Lissa, making the audience immediately want to root for them.

Plus, J. August Richards from Angel is in this series so that’s an automatic bonus!

Nails the moody/romantic TVD vibe…

This should really come as no surprise since the series is brought to us from the same team, but I felt vibes from the earlier seasons of TVD and The Originals in a positive way. If that’s your jam, you’ll find plenty to appreciate here in this stylistic series.

The Cons:

Needs more edge…

I know this is a YA series, but I just want the fight scenes to feel believable and intense. A lot of the content feels very superficial and I think if it digs deeper, it can tap into something darker and gritty, which would be really entertaining to watch unfold on screen.

The performances so far are all pretty mediocre, but I see some potential in a few characters. I think I’m just exhausted from all of the YA/supernatural/fantasy series and I want something a little more here, but there’s still plenty to enjoy if that is your genre.

So am I in or out?

I’m in about 75 percent…

There’s enough to enjoy with this series if you’re a fan of the book series or shows like TVD and The Originals. I just hope we tap into something a little bit darker as the episodes continue.

Spoiler-Free Review of “Wedding Season” on Hulu: In Love with a Criminal

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“I object…”

Wedding Season premiered on September 8th 2022 on Hulu. There are eight episodes in total that are all available to stream now. The thriller-comedy series stars Rosa Salazar, Gavin Drea, Jamie Michie, and Callie Cooke. Each episode is approximately 34-37 minutes.

Stefan attempts to talk the love of his life out of marrying the wrong guy, but things get complicated when her new family is murdered and Stefan becomes the main suspect.

Here is the trailer:

Wedding Season has a killer fun premise with likable leads, but does it do enough to earn a watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Hulu

Great chemistry between Stefan and Katie.

Rosa Salazar is quickly becoming one of my favorite new actresses and she dominates the screen in this one. I actually really liked Stefan’s character as well and I enjoyed the Bonnie and Clyde-esque adventures. There was believable chemistry between them and a spark that lit up the screen.

The thrilling moments were a lot of fun!

I really enjoyed the moments in the present day timeline and I thought these two were so much fun to watch. Stefan’s reactions to what was going on were hilarious and I was actually on the edge of my seat quite a few times. This series had elements of a light thriller with a dangerous romance to keep us invested.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Hulu

Tries to do too much…

While I enjoyed the mash-up of rom-com moments and thrilling action, this show attempted to cram a lot into thirty minute episodes. Sometimes the flashbacks were slightly confusing and I much preferred the present day timeline. The friend characters were OK and served their purpose, but there was some unnecessary fluff to sift through.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Hulu

I’m in about 75 percent…

Overall, this was an enjoyable watch and I loved Rosa Salazar’s character, but sometimes less is more and I think this series over-complicated things a little too much at times. That being said, I still was satisfied with my ride and there are plenty of entertaining moments up until the very end.

Spoiler-Free Review of “Tell Me Lies” on Hulu: Addicted to Love

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“Do you still love me?”

Tell Me Lies released on Hulu on September 7th 2022 with the first three episodes available to stream now. The remaining seven episodes will air weekly. Based on the novel of the same name and produced by Emma Roberts, the romance-drama series stars Grace Van Patten, Jackson James White, Catherine Missal, and Spencer House. Each episode runs for approximately 42-46 minutes.

Lucy becomes obsessed with a guy at college who has a few secrets of his own, as we follow a toxic relationship and how it impacts the lives of those around them.

Here is the trailer:

Tell Me Lies is a guilty pleasure slow burn that highlights just how dangerous some relationships can be while giving us a deadly secret to ponder over. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Hulu

Lucy has layers.

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of watching shows centered around a female character who is starry-eyed and naive about all the wrong things. Lucy is a darker character and really intriguing to watch. I liked Grace Van Patten in Nine Perfect Strangers and so far she is really captivating my attention in this series. 

Stephen is a mystery and just when I think I have him figured out, we are thrown a curve ball at the end of episode three that has me anxiously waiting to find out more.

Well played!

Images courtesy of Hulu

Not your average love story…

I didn’t really know what to expect with this one and I haven’t read the book, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this from the start. I was drawn in completely to this bad romance with edge and I am loving every second of it. I can’t wait to see things unfold into something really dark and chaotic. 

I also like that there is a mystery in the background and after that cliffhanger at the end of episode three, I need to know more about it immediately!

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Hulu

The supporting characters aren’t as interesting…

We’re spending some time on some of the other characters, but I’m honestly not that interested. I just want to know about Lucy and Stephen, but I don’t need that many details about the lives of everyone else unless it directly relates to them. The actors do a decent enough job, but I’ve seen enough college and teen dramas before and they aren’t doing anything that extraordinary. Our main characters are, however.

The hook-up scenes are a bit excessive. We pretty much get one with every new transition, but it hasn’t taken away from the main story that much so far.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Hulu

I’m in!!!

An addicting and steamy romance with a dark edge!

It’s safe to say that I’m hooked and then some! I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Devil in Ohio” on Netflix: YA Cult Mystery with a Strong Lead

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“She tries to save everyone…”

Devil in Ohio released on Netflix on September 2nd 2022 with eight episodes available to stream now. Based on the novel of the same name, the mystery thriller limited series stars Emily Deschanel, Madeleine Arthur, Sam Jaeger, Xaria Dotson, and Gerardo Celasco. Each episode runs for approximately 42-46 minutes.

A psychiatrist tries to help a young girl who has escaped from a cult, putting herself and her family in great danger.

Here is the trailer:

Devil in Ohio creates a chilling tone throughout the series as it draws you deeper into its mystery, but does it do enough to be worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Great to see Emily Deschanel on the small screen again!

The former star of Bones really shined in this series and gave a believable and heartfelt performance. The rest of the cast was great as well and I liked that each character had enough layers. I would have liked to have seen a little more from both Mae and Suzanne’s past, but it’s not always easy adapting a series from a novel and perhaps I’ll go back and read that to learn more about them.

Images courtesy of Netflix

A mystery that lures you in…

I was drawn in right away on this one and I thought that each episode did enough to hook the audience more and more. The story was a good one and I thought it had a decent balance of YA and family drama along with the cult mystery behind it. 

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Needed a darker edge at times…

Since this was based on a YA novel, it glazed over a lot of the darker cult aspects that I actually wanted to explore more. We definitely got sprinkles of just how twisted and disturbing the cult was, but I wanted to witness something even more shocking and terrifying. It just needed to dig a little bit deeper.

The pacing was also a little slow at times, but I still thought there was enough going on to bring me back with each episode.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Netflix

I’m in about 75 percent…

The series had a lot of potential and the mystery was genuinely unsettling and creepy. I liked the characters for the most part, but I just wanted this series to transform into something a little bit more mature and dark to fully captivate my attention. Overall, I enjoyed my watch, however.

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Devil in Ohio in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Spoiler-Free Review of “I Came By” on Netflix: A Terrifying and Riveting Thriller

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“I think he’s right to be scared…”

I Came By released on Netflix on August 31st 2022. The thriller film stars George MacKay, Hugh Bonneville, Kelly Macdonald, Varadu Sethu, and Percelle Ascott. It runs for approximately an hour and fifty minutes.

A graffiti artist discovers a shocking secret that puts him and the people closest to him in immediate danger.

Here is the trailer:

I Came By is an intense film that builds and builds into something truly frightening. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Intense AF!

Wow, this film kept me on the edge of my seat and then some! I was so drawn in and I couldn’t look away. I love the thriller genre, but this film took things to another level and I think a lot of that was because it was dark and rooted in the real horror of what happens when someone’s cold-blooded actions are covered up by their connections and power.

Kept me guessing…

I really didn’t know what would happen next once the horrifying secret was revealed. This film wasn’t afraid to brutally rip away hope from some of its characters and it was never predictable. The villain was beyond terrifying and I am still shaking after watching some of those scenes…

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Slower start…

The beginning of this film had a slower pace and I wasn’t really sure if I was going to keep watching, but once I got to the thirty minute mark, I could not turn off this film. It lured me in to this dark and twisted story that was so engrossing. There’s a little bit of set-up to sit through, but I recommend sticking it out because it’s worth it.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Netflix

I’m in!!!!

A ruthless thriller with a satisfying ending!

I highly recommend adding this to your watch-list. It was such a consuming watch!

Spoiler-Free Review of “The Patient” on Hulu: A Simple, but Effective Thriller Series

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“How can I help you?”

The Patient released on Hulu on August 30th 2022 with its first two episodes. The psychological thriller series will have ten episodes in total that will air weekly. It stars Steve Carell and Domhnall Gleeson. Each episode runs for approximately 23-25 minutes.

A therapist named Dr. Strauss is dealing with the loss of his wife when he meets an odd new patient who decides to hold him hostage while sorting out his issues with being a serial killer.

Here is the trailer:

The Patient doesn’t waste any time as it starts off in a startling and chilling way, reeling us into the therapy session from hell. Is it worthy of YOUR next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Hulu

Unique cat-and-mouse premise.

I really like the concept for this one and I’m excited to see where it goes. I appreciated that we didn’t waste too much time on exhausting set-up. Rather, we started off with a bang and then added in the layers as we went along. The formula may seem simple, but it’s working so far and really luring me in.

Shorter episodes.

So far the episodes are just under a half hour, which will make this one very easy to watch each week (similar to OMITB). The content is heavier, but there is still some dry sarcasm to keep things from becoming too overdone. There is a good dynamic between the main characters and already a cliffhanger to ponder over.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Hulu

Weekly episodes…

This isn’t necessarily a huge con, but sometimes I have a difficult time keeping up with shows that air weekly. I am really intrigued by this one and I think it could have been binge-watch worthy, but I’ll have to wait each week to see how things unfold…

So am I in or out?

Spoiler-Free Review of “Into the Deep” on Demand: Modern day “Dead Calm” has some Potential

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“Welcome aboard…”

Into the Deep released on demand on August 26th 2022. The erotic thriller film stars Ella Rae-Smith, Matthew Daddario, and Jessica Alexander. It runs for approximately 90 minutes.

Jess meets a handsome stranger and agrees to spend the evening on his boat, but things take a dangerous turn when she wakes up with him in the middle of the ocean as a stranger comes onboard.

Here is the trailer:

Into the Deep possesses the formula to become a solid guilty pleasure thriller, but does it do enough to earn a watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Sky Cinema

Addicting premise.

This movie had a fantastic setting and a chilling and addicting premise. I was all in and ready to see what horrific things would unfold. There’s just something so frightening about being trapped in the middle of nowhere. Dead Calm nailed that feeling many years ago and I really liked that this film channeled that vibe.

A mystery that kept me guessing.

I honestly couldn’t figure out who was lying and I thought this worked to the film’s advantage. There was evidence against all parties involved, but the audience really had to make their own guesses, which made this more of an involved watch. I was pulled in the entire time and I had to know what would happen next.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Sky Cinema

Needed some more suspense built in…

Even though I really enjoyed the mystery, I wanted some more intense moments built in to really keep me on the edge of my seat. We had some sprinkles of it toward the end, but I kind of wanted to feel my heart beat a little more during this one.

I also thought that Jess made some really poor decisions and I wanted the trauma involving her past to be explored just a little bit more.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Sky Cinema

I’m in about 75 percent…

If you’re looking for a weekend guilty pleasure thriller, this one checks off plenty of boxes. I really liked the mystery, but I just wanted a few more outrageous and thrilling moments to really seal the deal.

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Into the Deep in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Spoiler-Free Review of “The Girl in the Mirror” on Netflix: Creepy and Unsettling

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“It’s all over now…”

The Girl in the Mirror (Originally titled Alma) released on Netflix on August 19th 2022. All nine episodes are available to stream now. The Spanish supernatural mystery series stars Mireia Oriol, Claudia Roset, Javier Morgade, and Álex Villazán. Each episode runs for approximately 42-49 minutes.

After losing her memory in a tragic accident, Alma tries to piece together what happened that day as a supernatural presence lurks in her nightmares.

Here is the trailer:

The Girl in the Mirror is truly frightening with plenty of disturbing content and a decent mystery at its core. Does it do enough to earn a watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Extremely disturbing…

This series did not shy away from extreme gore, giving me some Final Destination vibes in the beginning. Horror fans will be pleased with this. There is also this unsettling supernatural presence that chilled me to the bone and an eerie mist and lighting that complimented it well. If you’re looking for something terrifying, Alma’s nightmares and hallucinations are filled with it.

Decent mystery.

There are plenty of horror elements, but there is also a decent mystery at the very center. It takes a while for it all to unfold, but each episode did enough to lure me in for more. The characters were likable enough, but I was mostly intrigued by what was going on with Alma.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Pacing issues…

This series felt a little unsure of itself at times. We got plenty of teenage drama to deal with and I was ready to tune out, but the supernatural element redeemed it. I’m kind of exhausted by so much teenage drama lately even though I come to expect it in these series.

I think the pacing needed some improvements. Things took too long to happen and I had too many questions brewing in my mind and not enough answers. There was that cliffhanger ending so I’m guessing we will get a season two potentially.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Netflix

I’m in about 75 percent…

The Girl in the Mirror has a decent mystery and some genuinely terrifying moments sprinkled in, but I personally wanted this show to pick a genre and stick with it. That being said, there’s still plenty to enjoy with this one if you like supernatural horror shows.

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on The Girl in the Mirror in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Echoes” on Netflix: A Trashy Thriller with A LOT Going On

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“My sister is missing…”

Echoes released on Netflix on August 19th 2022. All seven episodes are available to stream now. The thriller drama series stars Michelle Monaghan, Matt Bomer, Daniel Sunjata, and Jonathan Tucker. Each episode runs for approximately 42-47 minutes.

Gina travels back to her home town to track down her missing identical twin sister, as deadly and dangerous secrets are revealed along the way that could shatter her life completely.

Here is the trailer:

Echoes has a decent Gone Girl-esque set-up and a well known cast, but its messy plot and endless twists over-complicate things. Is it worthy of YOUR next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Netflix

A strong start.

I was actually really pulled into this story initially. There was a major twist at the end of the first episode and I thought the mystery was decent enough to keep me coming back for more. Michelle Monaghan put forth a valiant effort with her performance and I thought the actual premise was really interesting with lots of guilty-pleasure potential.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Netflix

Annoying voice-over narration…

Gina spends a lot of time “talking” to her identical twin sister over their video diary to find out where she is and what’s going on, but I found this really distracting and annoying. I’m not a fan of voice-over narration, but they really overdid it with this one.

Images courtesy of Netflix

A really messy plot.

I’m frustrated with this show because it started off really good and I thought I had an exciting binge-watch to enjoy. As the episodes continued, things started going off the rails completely. The plot was super messy and trashy. The performances got weaker and the twists were overdone, which ruined the initial shock value from the first episode for me.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Netflix

Unfortunately I’m out on this one…

If you’re looking for a Lifetime-esque trashy thriller, there is enough going on to make your head spin (if that’s your kind of thing). I was intrigued at first, but I started to lose interest as the episodes continued unfortunately. I think this might have worked better as a Saturday movie of the week instead.

Spoiler-Free Review of “Bodies Bodies Bodies” in Theaters: My New Favorite Whodunnit Movie!

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“It’s OK to be nervous…that’s part of the fun.”

Bodies Bodies Bodies released in theaters on August 5th 2022. The horror comedy film stars Amandla Stenberg, Maria Bakalova, Pete Davidson, Rachel Sennott, Chase Sui Wonders, and Lee Pace. It runs for approximately an hour and thirty-five minutes.

A party game leads to murder when a group of wealthy friends stay at an extravagant mansion while waiting out a hurricane.

Here is the trailer:

Bodies Bodies Bodies is a brilliant horror comedy that is so much fun to watch with plenty of shocking reveals that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Is it worthy of YOUR next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of A24

A murder mystery with plenty of hilarious moments.

Pass that zucchini bread! This film had a great balance of silly scares and humor, which made it a welcomed addition into the horror comedy genre. I’m normally not the biggest Pete Davidson fan, but I actually thought he nailed the vibe of his character. This film was really smart in the way it unfolded and I was entertained the entire time.

Images courtesy of A24

Fun characters!

I really liked the majority of the characters (in a love to hate them kind of way) and Alice was my favorite by far! Give this girl the crown! I would have liked a little bit more development for Bee, but the film did a great job of making every single one into a potential suspect, which made this film far from predictable.

Nails the ending!

There will be no spoilers in this review, but I LOVED the ending! I didn’t see it coming and by the time it was happening on screen, I was so beyond impressed. It really delivered and then some!

The Cons:

Images courtesy of A24

Takes a little while to get going…

I wouldn’t say that this was a major con, but the pacing was a little sluggish in the beginning. Once we started playing the game, this improved drastically but you do have to sit through a lot of exhausting dialogue in the beginning, but that’s what makes the film genius by the time you get to the end so stick through it!

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of A24

I’m in!!!

A brilliant and entertaining whodunnit mystery with an ending I didn’t see coming!

I was so hyped to watch this film and I think it delivered and then some!
