Paranormal TV: Psychic Investigators, Season 2

In season 1 of Psychic Investigators on Prime Video, I found that the psychics did not influence the crime investigations. Rather, they paralleled them with their insights, and the show demonstrated how uncanny it was that they were correct in the end.

I was expecting the same in season 2, but the show delivered a different take on the topic. In these episodes, psychics directly influenced crime investigations, which was fascinating. If the psychics had not been involved in the cases, they would not have gotten solved. This was what I was originally expecting of the show—that psychics investigated crimes and helped solve them—so I was delightfully surprised to see it.

I would certainly recommend season 2—and, so far of what I watched of season 3—if you want to see psychics making a difference in solving crimes.

Horror Cinema Trivia: Nightmare on Elm Street Franchise

Wes Craven had nothing to do with the first sequel, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge (1985), as he didn’t believe that Elm Street was capable of spawning a franchise. The success of the second film, outgrossing the original, convinced him otherwise. (From https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093629/trivia)

Drag Queen Horror Story: That Bloody Dress

Combining my love for drag queens and horror stories, I wrote a short story about a drag queen who is haunted by the mistakes of her past, in particular, getting a botched nose job and later mocking the plastic surgeon who did it to her on social media. Central to the story is the family bond within the drag community that sparks revenge when torn apart. If you like tales of murder and glamorous men in makeup, I encourage you to give the story a try! You can get your copy at BackupBrain: That Bloody Dress.

Next season of Netflix’s Sabrina to be the last

I was bummed to learn that Netflix’s Sabrina series will air its final season later this year:

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will end with a part four on Netflix later this year. Netflix and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa made the announcement on Wednesday night.

“The final installment promises a spooky, sexy and supernatural series finale — but not before Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) reveals a few more tricks up her retro-chic sleeve. Over the course of the final part’s eight episodes, the Eldritch Terrors will descend upon Greendale. The coven must fight each terrifying threat one-by-one (The Weird, The Returned and The Darkness, to name a few), all leading up to The Void, which is the End of All Things. As the witches wage war, with the help of the Fright Club, Nick (Gavin Leatherwood) begins to slowly earn his way back into Sabrina’s heart, but it may be too late.”
