Netflix subscribers are obsessed with this new and exciting dark fantasy movie
So much of the hottest content that's hitting theaters and streaming services right now is based on books as its source material. Do you remember the trailer with Lady Gaga that everyone was talking about a few weeks ago? There she crosses herself and viciously promises "father, son and house Gucci". This film is based on Sara Gay Forden's The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamor and Greed. The new film The Last Duel by Matt Damon / Jodie Comer, on the other hand, is based on a book of the same name that tells the story of the last legally sanctioned duel in medieval France. Apple has just finished filming part of its upcoming limited series Five Days at Memorial - based on Sheri Fink's book about a New Orleans hospital during Hurricane Katrina - in Toronto and is preparing to move to Louisiana. And the newly released Netflix film Nightbooks is also based on a children's book of the same name from 2018.

Winslow Fegley plays a little boy named Alex in this movie, currently number 3 on Netflix's top 10 movie list. He's obsessed with scary stories. Krysten Ritter plays an evil witch who locks him up in her magical apartment. Where she consequently forces him to tell her a scary story every night in order to stay alive. Meanwhile, Alex teams up with another prisoner named Yasmin to find out how to escape.
"Boo," says Ritter's cheeky witch to the frightened young Alex. "Let's finish this. I'm a busy witch. Are you useful in any way?"
The film currently enjoys a solid 79% critical rating on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 14 reviews. Like this one from the New York Times, who writes of Nightbooks director David Yarovesky: “He has a knack for light tricks - shadows, neon night vision, and movement in silhouettes - and the film is most delicious when he prefers visual flair over it Jump Scares. "
Regarding the film itself, Variety praises it for "his bizarre touches, along with an awe for creative young minds, (which) gives the film a warmth that offsets its shocks."
In this author's opinion, the Netflix movie Nightbooks has one thing that makes it too good to be without. Two words: Krysten Ritter. She brings a compelling recklessness to this type of role that would have ended up much more two-dimensional in the hands of less acting talent.
As the fan edit below shows, she's a pugnacious, deliciously diabolical witch in this movie. One that is worth seeing just because of its participation. Really, that's almost always the case when you see her name attached to a project.
