The Serpent review and trailer series on Netflix by HelpfulHannah

By
Real Estate Agent with HomeStarr Realty RS143922A

This post is inspired by Michael Jacobs it is about a series on Netflix 

 

THE SERPENT 

It is a true story that of course was dramatized but was so bizarre that the expression truth is stranger than fiction comes to mind.

 

Thanks to someone who worked in the Dutch Embassy who knew that there was truth to these events he sacrificed his career to find the truth. He not only jeopardized his career but also his personal life to get at the truth and to find justice in this unbelievable tale of a serial killer.

 

It takes place in the '70s in Asia a man and woman drugging young travelers who mysteriously are not heard from again. Who would care? Who Would Know?  This BBC movie series will keep you on the edge of your seat. You will want to watch all of it in one sitting.

 

A true story 

 

The Serpent was not nominated but just came out in April 

 

The trailer does not do it justice in my opinion

Hey sista,
The way the news is these days, this sounds a little dark for my fragile soul right now. I do appreciate your reviews.

Sounds great, Hannah... but as I don't have access to Netflix probably won't get a chance to watch this series.

We watched the first one last night. Wow. It is so interesting - and the bad guy is truly a creeper. Thanks again for letting us know about it.

Sorry, you will not be able to watch it. Netflix has many great programs I stopped my subscription through my cable company last year and just recently joined again but this time directly through Netflix at a cheaper price for $8.99 a month there is an endless variety of choices of entertainment.

My good friend Rita who lives in California always calls me or texts me and says OK I need a good Flick totally bored. She texted me back and said you outdid yourself with this one.  If you decide to watch let me know what you think.

Hannah, 

I like seeing movies but this one would keep me up all night, day and night. I don't think I could handle it. Plus, I don't have Netflix. I do appreciate your movie reviews!

Hannah, have not watched much for the last month, I have FIVE buyers, and that requires A LOT of showing and many offers written (and rejected...).

Hi Hannah- I'll put it on our Watch List on Netflix. I remember watching The Assassination of Gianni Versace a few years ago and while it was well done, it was so dark!!!

George 

This was very well done and the acting is wonderful 

 

Hi Kathy 

I did not care for The Assassination of Gianni Versace. This is not done in the same manner. I have also watched other series about serial killers that do not catch my attention and I do not really care for.  This one for some reason has a different beat.

Oh my not my intention to keep you awake by all means do not watch it 

 

Joan 

My downtime is watching a good flick. I set my timer and then the next night continues where I left off . Good luck in getting a closed  offer

Hannah, Although it's a true story, I don't think I will be watching it though. I'm preferring to watch the lighter side of stories these days, but appreciate your review.

Just a suggestion, not a request.  Looking for something light try. The Beauty and the Baker. My niece  also likes the less serious suggested this although she loved "The Serpent"   Have a Wonderful Day
