Netflix have been on a roll with their content recently, and there have been so many shows and movies I’ve fallen in love with.
If you’re running out of things to watch, or can’t quite decide if it’s worth getting yourself a subscription or not, I thought I’d share some ideas / persuasions to help!
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
I was born a very late 90’s kid (February 1999) but I definitely recall much of my childhood spent watching ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch‘ on TV. The comedy series aired from 1996 to 2003, and I’ve been missing it ever since.
This year, Netflix released ‘The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina‘, which is an adaptation of the original story. This version is much more a dark, twisted, coming-of-age story compared to that of the lighthearted comedy seen in ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch‘, and honestly, I love it!
As I’m older now, it was definitely gripping to see that darker focus, and I finished the show in a matter of days. With that said, I definitely missed hearing Salem’s sassy and hilarious remarks, however, Ambrose was enough to fill the gap.
If you haven’t seen it already, I’d seriously recommend doing so.
The Haunting of Hill House
When I saw everyone talking about this, I immediately thought it was going to be terrifying, and I wasn’t sure whether or not I’d be able to watch it.
My boyfriend and I put it on one evening, and I will admit, it was definitely scary, but I’m pleased to say it was watchable (but never on my own!).
The story was a little confusing, so it’s definitely a show that requires a lot of concentration, but once you get into it, the plot is a gripping rollercoaster all the way up to the end!
The twists and turns had me shocked, upset, and on edge the whole time, which kept me wanting to watch more after each episode came to an end. I’d definitely be interested in a second season to go into the background of the house itself!
It seems like most people have watched it now, but if you haven’t, don’t miss out!
Derren Brown: Sacrifice
Derren Brown is a mentalist and illusionist, with various shows available to watch on Netflix. I’ve been a huge fan of his shows (and his ghost train at Thorpe Park) for a long time now, so when I saw there were some on Netflix I couldn’t help but watch them.
My favourite one on there at the moment is “Sacrifice”, in which is psychological experiment sees if he can manipulate an ordinary person into taking a bullet for a complete stranger.
I’m without a doubt fascinated by the psychological techniques used throughout, and I’m always amazed at how the mind works, so this was an easy show for me to love!
It kept me hooked throughout, wondering how things would work, if things would go to plan, and in the end, whether or not he would actually take the bullet.
This is a spoiler-free environment, so I’ll let you find out for yourself!
I only started this very recently so I’m not too far in, but based on what I’ve seen so far, this show is incredible!
I was not at all expecting the event that prompts the rest of the show, and I’m loving the guessing games to find out the full story. It’s so gripping and emotional, so I can’t wait to find out how it goes from here.
If crime shows that keep you on your toes are your thing, I’d recommend adding this to your list!
