Why I can’t keep quiet after watching Typewriter on Netflix?
Typewriter on Netflix by Sujoy Ghosh is a horror series with 5 episodes released in 2019. Though I knew about it before somehow I kept delaying adding it to my watchlist. The reason was simply that Netflix distracts you from writing. It’s an addiction and horror, scary, suspense and thriller are my weaknesses. Well, early this year, I finally decided to watch it and after that, I just couldn’t keep quiet. I had to review it and share my personal opinion with my readers.
Typewriter on Netflix is a must-watch anytime anywhere
I like Purab Kohli from the days of Hip Hip Hurray on ZEE TV. He played a 12th-standard student and I was also in the 12th class at that time. I gelled with the show very much and then I used to watch him veejaying on music channels also. So after a long when I saw him acting in a horror series, I had to watch him.
The house is quite creepy
Don’t you want to be scared by just looking at the house? Let the rooms and creaking of doors come later. It’s a good house with the perfect wooden doors and an old attic to hide the secrets of the family members from the generations to come.
Most importantly, the story is not the usual creepy house with haunted spirits scaring you. It’s different and cool.
It’s quick and fast-paced
Today, nobody has time to waste. We want crisp entertainment so that we enjoy ourselves and don’t regret the time consumed. 5 episodes of around 30 minutes each is a good deal to start watching Typewriter on Netflix. I enjoyed all of them equally and watched them at one go because it was equal to a movie when compared to time.
The typewriter is the actual hero
Being a blogger, the typewriter as the title interested me. I wanted to own and use one as soon as I finished the series. It is a nicely designed typewriter. I am convinced of the makers when they gave it a spooky background and a justified place in the story.
It reminded me of R.L. Stine’s Fear Street
I have grown up reading Fear Street series novels and am a die-hard fan of Fear Street sagas where the curse would go centuries back and will continue until you burn that one thing in the present. The same connection I found in Typewriter on Netflix too. Oh my…whatever takes you back to good old memories ought to have a special place in your heart. This series was well spread and closed with proper explanation.
Bright sun can also scare you
What I liked the most about the story was that everything was clean and visible. It was pure daylight when the horror happens. It was not dark, witty or unusual dirty face masks that irritate you rather than scaring. The Typewriter on Netflix proves that it’s not the dark that scares you but a good horror story.
The story was explainable when it went to the old century and the magic, the curse and the after-effects, all are well synchronised. I like the yellow cinematography as it goes back in time.
The series swiftly switches back and forth in time which excites me even more. I was intrigued to know more all at once.
Well after revealing so much, I have still kept the story a secret. So you may watch it now. Just click here
