100 Humans

Hot off the heels of Netflix ‘Love is Blind’ social experiment show, comedians ‘Zainab Johnson’, and ‘Sammy Obeid’ and actress and writer ‘Alie Ward’ lead this brand new social experiment show that sets out to find answers to some of life’s tricky questions. All manner of experiments takes place including a form of ‘torture’ for the 100 willing participants. Questions such as ‘What is the proper way to use the toilet?’ and ‘Are men or women better?’ oh and ‘Can good looks keep you out of jail?’ are on the agenda and the social experiment show is determined to find out the answers – whatever it takes in this weird but satisfyingly funny series.

Bloodride

This Norwegian language anthology includes six comedic-horror style stories tied together by their protagonists being a passenger. As each passenger alights the mysterious bus in this strange universe, their story begins. Created by Kjetil Indregard and Atle Knudsen, the show stars Ine Marie Wilmann, Bjørnar Teigen, Emma Spetalen Magnusson, Benjamin Helstad, Harald Rosenstrøm and Torfinn Nag. The show has been described as being a blood-curdling horror genre but with a Scandinavian comedy spin and not unlike popular Netflix anthology series ‘Black Mirror’. In other words ‘weird’ but who doesn’t like weird, huh?

Lost Girls

Based on the true-crime ‘Long-Island Serial Killer’ or ‘The Craigslist Killer’ as he was also known was suspected of killing between 10 & 16 people over a 20-year period. This true crime dramatisation follows the story of one woman ‘Mari Gilbert’ played by Amy Ryan, desperately trying to find answers to her daughter’s disappearance. The film shows yet again (think last years ‘Unbelievable’) the incompetency of the police force at the time when investigating the case and their apparent inability to listen to women. Nobody is looking for Mari’s daughter so when she takes the investigation into her own hands and it leads to other missing women being found, it is no surprise they weren’t really being looked for either. The plot unravels to find more than meets the eye than just the occupational hazard of working girls. The film based on Robert Kolker’s book on the crimes aired at the Sundance festival but was met with criticism and has since been victim to critics who found the film to be lacking in passion enough for the actual story and evokes no real emotion in the viewer. We’re not sure about that – let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Altered Carbon: Resleeved

Straight off the back of Netflix ‘Altered Carbon’ comes this anime film spin-off. This new short film (1hr 14 mins) follows the same protagonist as the Netflix series; Takeshi Kovacs and is set in the same universe however has slight differences and explores new parts of the mythology. On the planet Latimer, Kovacs is tasked with saving a female tattooist whilst simultaneously investigating the death of a Yakuza boss. With the Yakuza a heavy feature, the anime appears to have a more Japanese feel however Kovacs remains of Hungarian heritage and the short anime film seems true to its form aside from this.
