I am going to try to blog as much as possible while staying indoors. I hope everyone is staying safe. In the meantime I just wanted to give a huge thank you to the doctors, emergency people, janitorial people, state and government workers and anyone else in the front line serving our communities during this weird time.
I also wanted to extend my gratitude to those who have been offering emotional and mental support to everyone. Kindness goes a long way!
Anyways back to the post in hand. I decided to do make this recommendation list for those who are bored watching the same thing and want to watch something that they normally would not pick at first.
Lost Girls (2020) starring Amy Ryan and Thomasin McKenzie. This movie is based on a unsolved true crime murders of six young women and their bodies were found along Gilgo Beach. Long Island New York.
I remember reading the book a couple of years that this movie is based on named Lost Girls : An Unsolved American Mystery by Robert Kolker and watching the documentary about this crime called The Killing Season and feeling overwhelmed by this. I hope one day this true crime is solved and this person is caught. Lost Girls is available to watch on Instant View on Netflix.
Killer Legends (2014)- directed by Joshua Zeman. Rachel Mills and Joshua Zeman made a documentary called Cropsey in 2009 and in 2014 they teamed up once again to make another documentary called Killer Legends.
Killer Legends tackles the roots of some famous urban legends. Such as the classic babysitter urban legend. I have revisited this documentary on and off since 2014. I hope these two produce more of these interesting topics.
Killer Legends is available to watch on YouTube:
McMillions (2020) directed by James Lee Hernandez and Brian Lazarte. Remember that Monopoly game that McDonald’s does every year? Well between the years 1989-2001 their was a group of people that ran a scam in order to win the top prizes.
Serial Mom (1994) starring Kathleen Turner, Sam Waterson and Ricki Lake and directed by John Waters. So this is one of the movies grew up watching. When I was off of school for the summer this movie was constantly on TV every Sunday afternoon. So naturally this became my go to movie when I need a good laugh!
Serial Mom is available to watch through many streaming platforms such as hulu, YouTube and ITunes.
Dark Shadows (1966- 1971) Starring Jonathan Frid, and Grayson Hall. So I’ll probably do another future post on this series alone because this is one of my favorite Tv shows ever! It has a good mixture of horror, and romance and gothic drama. And it is available to watch on the tubi app!
What is everyone watching while staying indoors? Comment below and share your recommendations with everyone!
Until next time!

Also in rotation is The Burbs, maybe because I was subconsciously thinking about Tom Hanks’ quarantine.
