Is anyone else watching this? Mike Flanagan’s new horror(ish) limited series on Netflix. It is all kinds of moody, weird, fracked up. A deep dive into religion, devotion, grief. If you liked Haunting Of Hill House or Gerald’s Game or the parts of the Shining sequel that were good (basically everything outside of the allusions to the Shining movie), I highly recommend.

Just finished episode 5... just messed up in all the best ways.

Finished the series last night. LOVED it. Now I feel like I have to watch Mike Flanagan’s other Netflix horror series.

It’s been a while since I got REALLY hypnotized by a show like this. Last one was probably Queen’s Gambit. Totally different obviously, but completely sucked in from the start on both.

We finished this last night. Extremely well done, but probably one of the most disturbing shows I have watched in a long time. Had a couple of moments where my wife and I literally jumped in our seats and yelled. Lots of fun!

This also helped me develop a new fear of communities on small islands. I am sure there are other examples in film and real life, but having a group of people living off by themselves in an isolated area...really bad things can happen!!!

It was okay. Some really cool moments, some really awfully-written scenes, and, Jesus, can we do anything but
Vampires
these days.

Started this one recently. I get exactly what you're saying with your comparison to Queen's Gambit. Completely different show of course, but the pacing and mood is similar. Hypnotized is a great way to put it.

Also, it's great to see Zach Gilford again. Haven't seen him since Friday Night Lights. Loved him in that.

The one with Jude Law on the island is creepy too. Islands small community on are creepy.
