It's Amazon's pilot preview time and they sent a list of 5 shows to vote on. I watched "Oasis" last night which I thought was excellent. It's a UK produced sci-fi show about a preacher who gets sent to a corporation run outpost on a distant planet.

Anyway, time to start Black Mirror. Expectations are high

LOVED Devil's Candy. I was a fan of Sean Byrne's first film "Loved Ones" too. This films tone is a lot darker than Loved Ones. I would describe it as a more refined and restrained Rob Zombie vibe. The film had a nod to the 70's/80's Satanic Scare (for those that lived through that era), along with a visual grindhouse aesthetic.

The films sound design and visuals were terrific. Well acted and taunt pacing with a 79 min run time. Highly recommended.

Folks here might like the Belgian series on Netflix "Hotel Beau Sejour". It's about a girl who finds herself in a hotel room with her dead body in a bath tub. I watched the first two episodes last night.

Looks like this one is available as a PPV on YouTube. I haven't tried that yet, I need a more reliable streaming stick on my main theater.

I should have mentioned in my post, we rented the movie on vudu. The HDX presentation left something to be desired relative to the PQ....that was a first for me. it was also showing at a local indep. theater here in KC too.

Why not? Me too. I don't have VUDU and have no experience with PPV on Youtube, but Amazon has it for $6.
