1) "Athena"--Netflix--movie--1 hour & 37 minutes--Synopsis: the tragic killing of a young boy ignites an all out war in the comminity of Athena with the victim's older brother at the heart of the conflict--the older brother, played by Dali Benssalah, has a 2-3 minute scene showing his hurt with a violent anger he can't/won't control--a very noisy picture with lots of deaths, an angry movie.
2) "Do Revenge"--Netflix--movie--1 hour & 58 minutes--2 high school girls exact revenge on each others enemies--one of the girls is a psychopath--I am not used to the mean girls genre and I guess that this is part of that genre--I enjoyed the film though the ending was rushed a little--of the whole cast Camilla Mendez, as Drea Torres, is a standout and has 'it'.
3) "Conversations with a Killer:The John Wayne Gacy Tapes"--Netflix--documentary--limited series--3 episodes--3 hours & 3 minutes--60 hours of horror--one of many documentaries showing 33 children, teenagers and young adults being brutalized and killed by a sadistic murderer--Netflix seems to have better ratings with ugly looks at life than beautiful ones--think all those 3's mean anything?
4) "The Beauty Queen Of Jerusalem"--Netflix--series--season 2--10 episodes--the acting is stronger than it6 was in the first season but the story takes some weird, unbelievable turns--put that aside and you are left with a moving tale of Jewish people in the middle east before and during WW2--season 2 ends with old stories untold and new stories beginning--need to see the first season to understand the second season and I'm looking forward to the third season.
5) "Unspeakable Acts"--Netflix--movie based on a true story--1 hour & 34 minutes--Synopsis: some 50 children, most 2-3 years old, appear to have been sexually molested--this fits in with the Netflix true horror stories but because it was made in 1990 and made for television the scenes are not as horrific as new stories but hearing the children doesn't make it easy to watch.
6) "The Watcher"--Netflix--limited series based on a true story--7 episodes--5 hours & 32 minutes--Synopsis: in 2014 the Broaddus family received a series of letters revealing details about their families that no one knew--the letter writer claims they are being watched at all times--a very starry cast makes the story interesting but too many people are involved and story is never solved.
