Kudos to the cast for bringing their A game to each role, big or small. Even the extras looked creepy and untrustworthy. Overall, a thumbs up for Out of Body. Hopefully, this serves as a lesson for everyone to listen to their instincts against dangerous situations. It was harrowing to watch Kelley helpless and alone, all while feeling trapped in the same situation the entire 15 minutes that the film was rolling too.

Apart from the message, the use of the 360 degree camera gives the film a unique and surreal feel. It contributes to the feeling of Arjan being in control of his environment. The background music also shifts to a more upbeat tone as the film progresses and as Arjan unlocks more discoveries in his little planet. It gives the film a sense of wonder and adventure and helps the the audience grow more excited for Arjan and his exploits.

After fearing the zombies for the better part of two seasons of Kingdom, Ashin of the North made me want to root for them somewhat because of this special episode. As usual, I was blown away by everything, from the production, to the story (Kim Eun Hee), to the masterful direction (Kim Seong Hoon) — and to think this was shot during a pandemic. Amazing. The level of badassery in this installment was nothing short of masterful. Bravo! Well done, Netflix!

Props to lead star Matilda Ana Ingrid Luz (that’s a mouthful) and co-directors Roberto De Feo and Paolo Strippoli who also wrote the screenplay with Lucio Besana. They really made the film stand out. It delivered its fair share of scares and you really feel for the female lead in her struggle to survive. I think that is what is lacking these days — a rootable main character that viewers can really get behind. In this sense, the film was a success and put itself alongside some of the more memorable horror features released during the pande

By its end, Takemichi was basically back to where the series started, and yet because of everything he discovered about Toman, it would be interesting how he could influence the future with a lengthened stay in the past. Will he be able to save everyone? Should I already get started on the manga or should I suffer in excitement until the second season is confirmed? All in all, a highly recommended series. I binged it in a day. It’s that good.
