i’ve watched some shit on tv and in movies that had my mind blown.
there were scenes that have disturbed my spirit,
but i watched a disney movie afterward to calm myself down.
i’ve been hearing folks talk about a show on amazon prime titled “them“.
i did peep the trailer a week before it came out and was excited to watch.
it gave me heavy “lovecraft country” vibes.
this show has been the talk of the social media forests,
either great reviews or terrible ones.
the foxholers warned me about this show when i asked about it on my ig stories.
“It’s black torture porn.”
and this comes with spoilers…
so i won’t lie,
the show had me lost af when i was watching it.
above the surface is classic racism in the 50s,
but below the surface touches on trauma and demonic activity.
The rape scene and the murder of the baby nearly got my mind up out of here.
that shit was waaaayyyyyy too intense for my liking.
i’ve never been so disturbed in my life over some shit on screen.
if i was watching this with a wolf,
i think my head would have been in his entire armpit.
the way how they edited this show is absolutely brilliant tho.
the way they provide terror with the little things >
from the color changes,
the shaking of the camera to provide anxiety,
the close-up shots of the actors so you feel their pain…
i’m gonna warn you and say this show is a lot to unpack.
if you check it out,
i’d love to read your thoughts.
i’m taking a break before i start episode 6.
I need a minute.
lowkey: of course it shows just how demonic some white folks can be.
