Ready to get spooky? Synopsis!
Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer, NBC’s The InBetween), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge, Straight Outta Compton) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid, HBO’s Euphoria). But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.

Now normally I’d simply share this through Facebook. But I absolutely love Wayne’s concept album, and the YouTube Channel Musical Hell does an amazing job of digging into it.
So watch the video, and then check out the album. Treat yourself. And if you find yourself falling into a Musical Hell wormhole, let it happen. She’s fantastic.
And y’all, it look like Chris Rock and company has NAILED IT. Saw this when I hit Fantasy Island today (okay enough for fans of Blum and/or the original show; mini review forthcoming) and I bounced in my seat. It’s looking like a very good entry/rehab of the series, which let’s face it has been circling the “been-there” drain of late. Synopsis!
Working in the shadow of an esteemed police veteran (Samuel L. Jackson), brash Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Chris Rock) and his rookie partner (Max Minghella) take charge of a grisly investigation into murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past. Unwittingly trapped in a deepening mystery, Zeke finds himself at the center of the killer’s morbid game.
Spiral: From the Book of Saw hits theaters May 15th, 2020.
