Let's talk movies! For me, it doesn't matter what genre it may be I'm pretty much open to watch anything. Being that we have to stay inside due to the pandemic, I thought I would share a list of movies and shows I think are really good on Netflix.

1. Bates Motel

Bates Motel

Bates Motel is a series that follows a mother (Vera Farmiga) and her son Norman (Freddie Highmore) as his psyche unravels in his teenage years. From the first episode, you will be on the edge of your seat. Now this series isn't new, it aired from 2013 to 2017. However, if you haven't seen it and you like horror/drama this show is for you! It has 5 seasons so get ready to binge watch.


2. Horse Girl

Horse Girl

This mystery/thriller is a movie about a woman named Sarah played by Alison Brie. She likes horses, arts and crafts, and supernatural crime shows. Sarah is a socially isolated woman but what I liked about this movie was the crazy situations she got herself into. She has issues with her lucid dreams trickling into her waking life. Check out the trailer here:

3. The OA

The OA

The OA is a series that has science fiction and supernatural elements. It's about a girl named Prarie Johnson who resurfaces after having been missing for seven years. The interesting thing about it is that before she disappeared, she was blind. This series is so good and I can't wait to see what happens next. Right now, there are only 2 seasons but this is a great show to watch! Trailer:

4. Wentworth


Wentworth might be one of my most favorite shows yet! It's about a woman named Bea Smith who is awaiting trial for the murder of her husband. She basically has to learn how life works in prison but when I tell you this show is amazing I mean it! You will not be disappointed! It's drama filled and action packed. Wentworth is currently 9 seasons long and keeps getting better. View the trailer here:

5. Freaks


Who doesn't love a good Sci-fi thriller? Freaks is a movie about a little girl named Chloe and her father Henry. It starts off by Chloe wanting to go outside but they can't do that because they have to shield themselves from the outside world. At night, Chloe hears noises and if you watch the movie, you will soon discover why and who exactly she is hearing. It's a great movie and I hope it gets a sequel! Trailer:

6. Colony


What's a good show if it doesn't have a little family drama? This series is about a family that will soon discover they are on opposing forces. They end up having to make difficult decisions as everything they used to know is no longer the same. With places being split up into colonies, a different way of living is their new norm.
