Shudder 2020

An exploration of the myths and legends behind some of Hollywood’s notoriously “cursed” horror film productions.

Were these films really cursed, as many believe, or just the victims of bad luck and bizarre circumstances?

superficial - does not delve deep, is not thorough nor does it reveal anything new or interesting.

I wasn't aware of many of those supposed "curses" surrounding the movies so while that info was somewhat interesting there wasn't enough for it there to fill a streaming services desire for multiple episodes - so what do you do? Pad them with often times irrelevant stuff to make them longer... The Twilight Zone Movie episode also highlighted the more exploitative side of the subject mater but it's also the first time a horror doc actually did not idolize John Landis as an icon which was unexpected to see on Shudder of all places.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
