1. A Quiet Place Part II
“Chilling”, “terrifying”, “fun”, and on and on, the praises for the horror film sequel keeps coming in. Since Paramount Pictures have only released it for screening at cinemas, this one will force you to leave your home. The verdict is that you won’t regret doing so.
2. Lucifer Season 5
There is no need to preach to the choir if you are a longtime viewer of this urban fantasy superhero television series. For people just discovering this Netflix show, it is going to change your perspective while entertaining you. Consider that the American Family Association (AFA) website One Million Moms launched a petition to prevent the series’ airing in 2015. Why? They said the series glorifies Satan as a caring, likeable person in human flesh. Already tempting? Join the millions of faithful fans and you can binge-watch the other seasons as well this weekend.
