Think It was scary?
Or It Comes at Night?
Maybe something from the Friday the 13th franchise?
Want to know what has me hiding in a corner with my hands over my eyes? The scariest thing on the screen today?
The Handmaid’s Tale
No ghosts, no zombies, nothing coming out of the floorboards to grab you in the night, but The Handmaid’s Tale doesn’t need CGI special effects to be truly terrifying. The monsters here are human and very real.
The scary thing? The loss of liberty depicted in the show has happened in other countries and could happen in any country … if we take our freedom for granted and stop paying attention.
As in any dictatorship, no one is free in this story. Women are cattle and men are tools. Being attracted to your own sex is a death sentence.
Religious platitudes justify atrocious actions … hmmmm … where have I heard that before?
It’s only fiction, right?
