The weekend is here. Yes, you may decide to go out or better still, just chill in the house.

If you do, here’s a list of five good flicks and TV shows you should check out.


There is just something so satisfying about an atmospheric thriller that lives up to the hype.
The show is a moody, slow mystery that pulls you into its orbit and never lets you go. This is the horror series you’ve been missing from your life.

Luckiest Girl Alive

Based on the best-selling novel, Ani FaNelli (Mila Kunis), a sharp-tongued New Yorker appears to have it all: a sought-after position at a glossy magazine, a killer wardrobe and a dream Nantucket wedding on the horizon.

But when the director of a crime documentary invites her to tell her side of the shocking incident that took place when she was a teenager at the prestigious Brentley School, Ani is forced to confront a dark truth that threatens to unravel her meticulously crafted life.

Love Island

If you are like me, always in search of some spiciness, drama, and romance then this show is for you.

Love Island is a sizzling series based on the international smash hit and cultural phenomenon.

The matchmaking begins as a group of single “Islanders” come together in a stunning villa in Las Vegas, ready to embark on a summer of dating, romance, and ultimately, relationships.

The Watcher

Very creepy and unnerving, Ryan Murphy’s new series is based on a true story about a family receiving mysterious letters from someone known as “The Watcher.”

Bobby Cannavale and Naomi Watts are the couple that moves into 657 Boulevard, the house of The Watcher’s obsession, in Westfield with their two kids.

The show is filled with a fantastic cast of unsettling neighbours and residents of Westfield, with the always brilliant Jennifer Coolidge, Richard Kind, Margo Martindale, Terry Kinney, and more.

Halloween Ends

The third Halloween film directed by David Gordon Green finds Jamie Lee Curtis once again reprising her role as the tormented Laurie Strode, a woman forever plagued by the masked killer Michael Myers.

Following last year’s Halloween Kills this is being billed as Michael and Laurie’s final confrontation (possible) and the final Halloween film ever.
