5 Netflix Streams Perfect For A Duvet Day

5 Netflix Streams Perfect For A Duvet Day

It’s getting windy out there…. And like the IMAGE team, we so hope you are staying safe and taking extra care not to go out as the now?ex-hurricane (but still very serious tropical storm) Ophelia descends. Ireland is still preparing and trying to deal with the hurricane (the southwest and south were hit early this morning) as thousands of homes are without power. On Sunday, Met ?ireann?extended a red level wind warning to the whole country warning Ophelia would pass directly over Ireland during daytime (it’s due to hit Dublin around 1pm) delivering ?violent and destructive gusts? in all areas. People are advised to stay indoors – in work or at home – while it passes.

And should you be curled up and duvet-daying it, here are five?things to start streaming which will hopefully create some distraction. Stay safe everyone.

THE KILLING

dc3f1000-f8c0-0131-c0cb-0eb233c768fb

The Killing?follows detectives Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder as they attempt to track down the murderer of a local teenager, Rosie Larsen. When they discover the teenager’s body investigation begins to apprehend her killer. You’re hooked from the get-go; everyone is a suspect, and no one leads the innocent lives they appear to (and you’ll notice the many influences of?Twin Peaks?throughout the first two seasons), so keep on watching you must. Dark, atmospheric and with stellar performances from the likes of Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman as Stephen Holder and Sarah Linden (one of the best on-screen duos ever),?this one is a must-see, simple as.

BATES MOTEL

bates-motel-motel-room

As a contemporary prequel to the famous?Psycho‘movie, this is intriguing from episode one.?Bates Motel?tells the story of a young Norman Bates and the skin-crawling relationship with his unhinged mother, Norma (played by the brilliant Vera Farmiga).?This story goes beyond the usual horror/thriller and delves into the dark psychosis behind the famous character. Particularly interesting is the connection between the 1960?’s Alfred Hitchcock film and this modern offering. It makes for a disoriented?watch, and Freddie Highmore is fantastic as the disturbed Norman. It isn’t quite what you’ll expect, but binge-watch it you must.

WEST OF MEMPHIS

The case was a horrendous triple-homicide involving little boys in West Memphis, Arkansas, and the ensuing trial of the then-teenage suspects is considered a pinnacle achievement in courtroom-focused true-crime documentary reporting.?Beginning with an examination into the police investigation into the 1993 murders, filmmaker Amy Berg brings to light new evidence surrounding the arrest and conviction of Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley.

MINDHUNTER

Produced by Charlize Theron, the newly-released Netflix series follows Agent Ford (played by Jonathan Groff) as he and a colleague interview imprisoned psychopaths and let cops in on their findings. This is termed criminal profiling but back then – in the 1970s – the terminology’didn’t exist. ?Based on the 1997 crime classic by John Douglas – one of the first FBI profilers in the US whom the Silence of the Lambs? Agent Jack Crawford was based – the series explores beginnings of what became criminal profiling and the lengths those profilers went to understand their subjects. It’s creepy and unsettling, but a must-watch.

STRANGER THINGS

Stranger-Things2

Set in 1983 in a small Indiana town,?Stranger Things?crosses a multitude of genres to combine horror, science-fiction, and coming-of-age drama, with moments of laughter thrown in. ?It begins?when a young boy named Will disappears on his way home. At the same time, a mysterious girl known as Eleven arrives in town. These are the two incidents that appear to be linked but this time, the adults don’t have much luck solving the mystery, so it’s up to the children of the town to do some investigating. And so begins the supernatural horror, twists and turns and moments of surprise we won’t spoil for you. It’s a show that has it all; much like a variation of?Twin Peaks,?engaging and full of mystery. Start and you won’t be able to finish until you get to the very end but make sure you do because’season two is?to premiere at the end of the month.
