There was a time in my life where I did Stand up comedy. Stand-up comedy has evolved so rapidly especially when Netflix has become the easy outlet to shell out these stand-ups.
It's the lesson we've always been told: Do not offer to drive a hitchhiker. This character's decision to do that led to the cat and mouse game for his life.
Back to the Future, Sixteen Candles, St.Elmo's Fire, Weird Science, and The Breakfast Club all came out in 1985, all have stood the test of time for it's legacy and yet Real Genius had all of those qualities for a good movie yet it flew under the radar and has yet to be acknowledged for the great film that it is. Sure it's a cult movie, but more then that. If you were to look this movie up on tumblr for any fandom for this movie, it's nonexistent. If you were to look up for any possible merchandise for this movie, the only thing you'd find is a t-shirt which has a known band on there, which doesn't really count.
Junji Ito is hailed as one of the innovators for different takes on the idea of horror. He had made several stories over the last thirty years to present the abnormal ways anyone or anything can be a threat. From grease, balloons, or a shape. He's been the one to change our viewpoint on an average item or routine. And keep our lights on at night. My list will be ten of the stories that have changed my perspective as well as what still shakes me to my core. This list will not have what I believe is the scariest to downgrade other stories he's done. It's an equal list of eerie.
In 2018, Netflix released an ambiguous trailer about two individuals that volunteer themselves to undergo a pharmaceutical testing trial. What made this sci-fi preview interesting was it had something to offer. There were tense images of what was to become of these characters we haven't met yet, what made them want to be here, the ending of the trailer had Emma Stone dressed in a 1920's outfit. That was a unique twist to keep my intrigue, and I anticipated what questions would be answered when I watched it.
