Even with Spring in full bloom, I do enjoy some horror series here and there.  There are great horror TV shows/movies that help keep me occupied while waiting for my favorite one of all time – American Horror Story.  I wait, both patiently and impatiently, for the newest season of American Horror Story to come out.  Each one comes with yet another horrific chapter even more twisted then the previous version.  The most recent chapter, American Horror Story: Apocalypse, woven together multiple elements from different story lines.

We still have four months until the newest season drops.  But for today, it’s time to discuss a bizarre horror show on Netflix.  It centers around an extreme obsession on a girl’s mysterious death in the suburbs of Arizona.  This is Chambers.

Chambers is the story of a teenager named Sasha who receives a heart transplant from Becky.  After her transplant, she is haunted by these unexpected visions.  As Sasha’s visions become more troublesome, she starts to dig deep about the donor’s mysterious death.  She then starts to unravel through the gruesome circumstances and wild conspiracy about her tragic end.

This story got twisted really fast.  There are various elements of psychedelics used within the story.  Cannabis, mushrooms, peyote, and even ayahuasca are mentioned throughout the season.  Interestingly enough, these all add to the increasingly bizarre events that happen each episode.  To put it bluntly, Chambers is a story wrapped in chambers of craziness.

Psychedelics, a heart transplant gone wrong, crazed obsessions about the mysterious death of a young girl.  All of these help Chambers make for a great horror series worth seeing.  Various creepy elements tied together for one true horror fest.

With that, Chambers is a great horror series worth checking out.  There are strange coincidences that happen within Sasha and Becky that only get weirder each episode.  For those who are impatiently waiting for the newest season of American Horror Story to drop, Chambers is a great horror series to watch this Spring.

AHS: 1984

Here we are in the middle of April and we are half a year away until the newest season of American Horror Story.  Season 8 was quite explosive last year as American Horror Story: Apocalypse revolved around Michael Langdon, the powerful demon that was born in American Horror Story: Murder House.  From the very first episode, it has been a whirlwind of seasons crossing over upon each other.  There were many elements from different seasons that were wrapped into one amazing story line.

It may still be early in the year, but a MAJOR teaser was recently dropped last week.  The teaser dropped the newest season which will be known as… AHS: 1984.

The teaser shows a young teenage girl running through the woods at night.  A tall, dark masked man slowly chases after her.  She finds shelter in an abandoned barn.  Even still, the masked man still catches up to her.  Seconds later, the teaser ends with the masked man driving a knife through the barn door.  With that, the scene reveals the season’s title ‘AHS 1984’.

Interestingly enough, 1984 was quite a significant year for slasher movies.  Some infamous movies that came out that year include Friday the 13th, Children of the Corn, Nightmare on Elm Street, and The Hills Have Eyes.  All four movies gained nationwide success, creating a major cult following among horror movie fans everywhere.

With this new title released, what kind of story can we see this year?  Will American Horror Story become a slasher-themed horror movie for this season?  Could the season be set at summer camp?  Who is the masked man that followed the girl into that barn?

This one teaser already came packed with many unanswered questions to answer.  Will start finding out the answers soon enough.

For now, let’s take the time to celebrate the revealing of this year’s season titled AHS: 1984.  Who knows what kind of adventurous ride we will be in for this fall?

Netflix’s Bird Box


With a new year means new media being released every day.  New books, TV series, movies, music, video games, and others will be coming out as time goes on.  That certainly goes for streaming services like Netflix.

Even as we already rung in the new year, one title from 2018 is still sparking popularity around Netflix these days.  It’s the infamous post-apocalyptic title about a woman who makes it through a forest and river all while blindfolded.  This is Bird Box.

Bird Box features Sandra Bullock as Malorie Hayes, a tense mother who takes a dangerous trip down a river by boat.  He brings along his kids, Boy and Girl, along for the treacherous journey.  To make matters worse, Malorie and her kids are trekking through the river… while BLINDFOLDED.

The film takes us back five years ago where mass suicides were occurring throughout Europe and Russia.  After discovering a woman bashing her head repeatedly into a glass panel, Malorie realizes that the epidemic is hitting the United States.  The epidemic even took Malorie’s sister Jessica (played by Sarah Paulson!) as well.  It’s a crazy post-apocalyptic thriller film that showcases Malorie’s dangerous adventure all while taking us back to the horrific events five years ago.

Throughout the film, there are a few birds that are kept inside a small box (hence the name, Bird Box).  This imagery represents the human beings being kept out of the dark from the beautiful world around them.  They are shut out from the outside world because the supernatural entities are causing them to commit suicide.

Overall, Bird Box was really interesting to watch.  After viewing many internet memes, I figured it was time to check out the film on Netflix.  Needless to say, it definitely lived up to its name.  Some of the other notable actors in the film include John Malkovich and Machine Gun Kelly.

If you already miss 2018, Bird Box is definitely worth viewing on Netflix.  Sandra Bullock pulls off her most dangerous adventure as she paddles through the long river while blindfolded.  It’s a popular thriller that lives up to its hype.

Kevin Hart’s Academy Awards PR Nightmare

Within the past few years, Hollywood award shows have been spurring up lots of controversy these days.  The Golden Globes, Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, and many other award series featured some form of mishap or shocking message that dragged many names in the mud.  One event featured a crazy blunder with the name flop during the 2017 Oscars (read more on that here).  It just goes to show that any PR nightmare during the award shows will spread for quite a while.

But one PR nightmare has already sparked on social media before the 2019 Academy Awards even started.  Famed comedian Kevin Hart has stepped down from hosting the Academy Awards after controversial jokes resurfaced from his past.  He announced as the Oscars host on December 4th, but was soon booted from his title.  Hart later apologized, confirming that he will not be hosting this year.

After that, Nick Cannon showed support for Hart and went on various Twitter rants re-posting old tweets from other comics.  Such comics he name-dropped include Sarah Silverman, Amy Schumer, and Chelsea Handler.  Cannon would be just one of many figures supporting Kevin Hart.

Nick Cannon wasn’t the only celebrity in this social media feud.  Comedian Michael Che utilized the news for his ‘Weekly Update’ segment Saturday Night Live.  Rather than tearing Hart down, Che defended him for his actions.

Michael Che and Nick Cannon were just a few of many celebrities backing behind Kevin Hart.  Others include Kevin Kline, D.L. Hughley, Michael Blackson, and Andrew Schulz.  Billy Eichner was even another member taking to Twitter on this controversy as well.

At this point, everything has become one big circus.  One shocking tweet from the past resurfaced and a bomb went off all around social media.  The real victim of this nightmare is Kevin Hart and these comments from the peanut gallery are only propelling this train wreck even further.  For the record, this circus act will continue as we see who will become the next host of the 2019 Academy Awards.

One thing’s for certain – Kevin Hart will not be hosting award shows anytime soon.  His PR nightmare will blow over eventually.  It just takes one hidden tweet from the past to completely remove Hart from hosting the Academy Awards.

In the world of social media, nothing stays hidden forever.  There’s that one tweet, one picture, one idea that could put a serious damper on things.  If only Kevin Hart knew of that fact before he were to suffer in the hands of his own PR nightmare.
