    Killer Book Club


    Another Disturbingly bad “original” from Netflix.

    Spanish slasher thriller Killer Book Club wore its cinematic influences on its sleeve - so much that it almost felt like a mean-spirited parody. You’ve got scenes obviously copy pasted from Valentine, Scream, and I Know What You Did Last Summer.

What's impressive about Memoirs Of A Geisha is the lavish art direction, costume design, music, cinematography and set design. Every artistic detail is immaculate and regal. The acting of our main cast ranges from good to strong too. But Gong Li is the real star here; a…
