Beyond its horrific aspect, Poltergeist is a film filled with mysticism. First of all because of its setting, since it develops the theme of the haunted house, but also because of the film itself. On paper, the work is part of the filmography of director Tobe Hooper (Chainsaw Massacre), but the subject of the paternity of Poltergeist Even today, 29 years later, the debates with cinephiles are still fueled by the strong involvement of Steven Spielberg (E.T., Schindler’s List, Jurassic Park) in its creation. Another mystical aspect, its qualifier of film “cursed” in view of the disappearance of some of its actors, sometimes in troubled circumstances, after the end of the shooting thus creating an urban legend around the project. Raised to the rank of cult horror film, Poltergeist tells us the story of the Freeling family and their three children. One evening, when the family’s television appears to be dysfunctional, an apparition slips off the screen before finding refuge within the walls of the home.. Paranormal events follow that will lead to the kidnapping of the youngest, Carol-Anne, sucked into another dimension from the closet of her bedroom.

La Casa de Papel (Partie 5 – Volume A)
Passed unnoticed when it was originally broadcast on Antena 3 between May and November 2017, The Money Heist, a series created and co-produced by Álex Pina, enjoyed runaway and popular success when it landed on Netflix in December 2017. Such a scale that the series begins, in this month of September, the diffusion of the first part of its fifth season which includes 5 episodes, the other part, in 5 episodes also, will arrive three months later, on December 3. Fetish series for some, guilty pleasure for others, we must recognize The Money Heist its status of global success, despite the inconsistencies of its script, its recurring gimmicks which can annoy or the writing of its characters which can make cringe. Whatever the opinion, the series is reacting and is found a little on everyone’s lips. For this fifth season, we will find our dear thieves with city names, shaken by the tragic events of season 4, while their plans to evacuate the Bank of Spain are once again undermined, and that the Professor must face, for his part, a critical situation that escapes him in a final cliffhanger.

Released a little over three years ago in French cinemas, BlacKkKlansman in particular made a strong impression at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, the edition during which it received the Grand Prix, as well as across the Atlantic where the film was nominated in many categories during the Golden Globes and the Oscars. The film BlacKkKlansman, for which Spike Lee takes on the triple cap of director, producer and screenwriter, is the film adaptation of a real police infiltration into the Ku Klux Klan, performed by Ron Stallworth in the late 1970s. Also narrated in 2014 in the book Black Klansman, the story features Ron Stallworth, Colorado Springs’ first African-American policeman, played by John David Washington (Tenet, Malcolm & Marie). The latter launches the crazy gamble of integrating a local branch of the Ku Klux Klan by posing as a white supremacist during telephone exchanges. However, he himself cannot participate in the group’s events and allies himself with his Jewish colleague Flip Zimmerman., played by Adam Driver (Star Wars 7/8/9, Marriage Story, Silence), who pretends to be him in order to integrate the meetings of the racist group and sabotage, from the inside, their gatherings and demonstrations. Very well received by critics, Spike’s film even peaks at a score of 96% on the Rotten Tomatoes site.

Detective Conan (season 1)
Worthy representative of animes in the Netflix catalog for the month of September, Detective Conan should bring back good memories to those who discovered it in particular, during their youth, when it was broadcast in January 2004 via Cartoon Network or a year later on France 3. If it doesn’t have the same aura as some great manga, Detective Conan, created by Gōshō Aoyama in 1994, nonetheless remains a major work, still in progress, which lists 99 volumes and more than 26 seasons for the animated version with a total of more than 1000 episodes.. During this first season, initially broadcast in 1996, we follow the first investigations of the young Conan Edogawa, six years old, while he moves heaven and earth to track down the members of the Organization of the Men in Black. In fact, young Conan is a 17-year-old high school student named Shinichi Kudo who used to help the police with his detective skills., except that following an unfortunate encounter with the criminal organization, he is inoculated with a poison supposed to kill him. However, a side effect does occur, sparing it and making it regain a childlike appearance. As a result, he is placed in the custody of his friend Ran and his father Kogoro Mouri, a private detective whom he will help in his investigations and for whom he will build world fame.

In the space of twenty years, Darren Aronofsky has managed to offer a filmography that does not leave you indifferent. Sometimes with punch films (The Wrestler), sometimes with more disturbing films (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan). After Noah, released in 2014 with a mixed critical reception, Darren Aronofsky continues his biblical fascination with Mother!, a closed session bringing together Jennifer Lawrence (Hunger Games, American Bluff), Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men, Skyfall), Ed Harris (Apollo 13, The Truman Show) and Michelle Pfeiffer (Scarface, Dangerous relationships). In a film filled with metaphor and symbolism, we follow the story of a couple, played by Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem, whose tranquility will quickly be shaken by the arrival of many protagonists in the house they occupy.. This is for the very factual version of the summary, but this production, which borrows in particular from the horrific genre of home invasion, is tinted with different reading levels. Between religious metaphor, allegory of Nature or even film on the act of creation, Mother! is a disturbing and divisive experience (like much of the director’s filmography) whose last half hour is particularly trying.

Horrific caution on behalf of Netflix, Mike Flanagan returns with a brand new series, titled in its original version Midnight Mass, after the film Jessie (Gerald’s Game) and the two essential anthologies The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor. Fruit of the collaboration with the American giant, Midnight Sermons takes us to the mysterious island of Crockett Island. On the latter take place a series of supernatural events, which flirt between strangeness and miracles, following the arrival of an enigmatic priest.. With this new project, Mike Flanagan seems to abandon his penchant for ghosts by making men and the evil that lies dormant in them the main subject of his plot. The theme, it remains as dark as ever because of the setting of Crockett Island where, beyond faith, death seems to have also taken up residence.. Spread over seven episodes, Mike Flanagan’s new series therefore takes us into familiar territory with its different themes, but also thanks to its cast in which the director reiterates his confidence. We will therefore find Kate Siegel (The Haunting of Hill House / Bly Manor), Henry Thomas (cross in the two series mentioned above, he plays in particular the father of the family in the first) as well as Rahul Kohli (Owen in Bly Manor).
