Meet me at the shadowy crossroads… – 5 creepylicious stars!
Welcome to the shadowy crossroads where dark fantasy/sci-fi and horror meet!
About the show
Having gone missing seven years ago, the previously blind Johnson returns home, now in her 20s and her sight restored.
While many believe she is miracle, others worry that she could be dangerous.
Oh lord, people all the hype it’s true! You gotta watch this show!
This was quite the experience. So retro, vintage, unique and creepylicious. B-Dad and I binge-watched it until we couldn’t keep our eyes opened anymore.😴
And to think that I had never heard of it! It was B-Dad who told me about all the hype! 🙄
Because I’m like that most of the time: clueless. Then sometimes I get out from under that rock I’ve been living and go… “Ooooh, Hellooo beautiful world!”
SO WHY DID WE LOVE IT SO MUCH?? ❤
Well.. A few reasons…
One – This Netfilx Original show is a very intense and “hold your breath” suspenseful story. Even the title is a big mystery! I was like “Omg! Tell meee! Why the freaking ‘OA'”??? 😫
Two – It’s scifi, slash mystery, slash horror, and that is ALWAYS fantastic 💀
Three – The performances, the scenery, the visuals, are all stellar…
Believe me! THIS SHOW IS SO FREAKING GOD!
Four – The wonderful disarray of characters… OH MY! You know, the kind where they seem to have nothing in common but at the same time they do, deep in there at the level where you find that we are all basically the same in our hopes and despairs.
Warning: Don’t let the poetic tone of my last sentence confuse you into thinking this is a drama show!
There is drama. Yes. There is just the perfect TINY amount of drama in the characters’ backstories and arcs to give it depth and complexity but, this is a VERY, VERY dark tale.
What happened to this woman during those seven years is… NO JOKE people! There is really hardcore torture here. This is the stuff my nightmares are made of! ☠️
During most of this first season you are like… WTH??? WHAT HAPPENED TO HER? How come she can see now? WHAT is it that she wants to do now??? With all these people??? WHAT??? Show me, pleeeease!
I was like… “I bet it was the aliens!”… 👽 “a government experiment!”☠️ “Vampires!” “Zombies!”
I was always so sure I knew what happened, and then… the series spins like 180 degrees! And it gets more retro than a spray painted Volkswagen!
There is even a kinda 60s hippies’ commune of flash mob scene that I was like HUH??? Smoking shrooms much people?
If you enjoy sci-fi/thriller totally-tripping-psychedelic-kinda movies about other dimensions and state of consciousness I think you’d love this show.
If you watched it already… what did you think of it? Did you utterly loved it as I did?
Thank you for visiting!
