Parfume TV Series 2018 (Season 1 | Netflix)

Cast: Friederike Becht, Natalia Belitski, Ken Duken, August Diehl, Christian Friedel, Trystan Putter

Director: Philipp Kadelbach

Overall Rating:

What do you think, when the classic book you read has turned into a mainstream cinema? Disappointment, perhaps. But not this time, the Netflix German Original Perfume is a not an adaption of the Classic novel “Perfume: The Story of a Murderer” by German writer Patrick Suskind but it’s rather loosely inspired by the idea of Perfume itself. The Six episodes narration of reimagined and modernized Perfume, is, indeed a spectacular TV.

The series unfolds with a gruesome murder of women; Katharina Laufer, which makes five of her former classmates reunite at her funeral. The murder is further investigated by troubled detective Nadja Simon played by Friederike Becht, who’s good in her job but equally disturbed with her secret relationship. All the characters are troubled and are dealing with situations in their own way while the series juggles through their childhood flashbacks. As the series goes further, everyone’s sinister secrets are revealed making all friends countable for the murder of not just Katharina but two other women, who have also been murdered in an identical style. The more flashback the more secrets are revealed and ultimately connecting the dots of the creation of the final perfume ‘A Perfume that makes everyone love you’, Now, that is something that I wanted from a series inspired by Suskind character Grenouille.

This is a series for people, who like dark gritty dramas and have an appetite for twists and unsettling characters. Cinematography and production design have done a striking job that does justice to the theme. How strong and week a character is, every character has an earth-shattering moment, which makes you question their honesty and cruelty simultaneously.

There are not many series that can deliver this much of thrill in an equally disturbed tone, there is this certain gore nature in this series that makes it stand sundry. Director Philipp Kadelbach and writer Eva Kranenburg have played with the Perfume the Story of Murderer so well that this series has its own ominous trail that makes it a finest inspired version of the original story.

I think this is probably the second German series that I watched and liked after Dark. As I said, Perfume has its own trail, a kind of trail that lingers you and stick with you like your own odour. I’ll go with 4.5 stars out of 5 for this series, the disturbing scent of the ultimate Perfume will definitely leave you awestruck.

I'm a ponderous human being, who uses sarcasm as a conventional term to delineate humanity... I have no idea, what I'm sayin. 😜

  1. Keep Your Device Warm in winter season: 

    The first tip that you should prefer to keep in mind in the winter season is to keep your device warm. Actually, you should know that your device is key to your vaping bliss. And during the winter season, you have to make extra effort to keep it warm, especially when it’s not in use. And keep in mind there are certain reasons behind this about which you should know.

And in the cold weather, this drawing will be less that will restrict you to enjoy your vaping experience.  That might happen because of the cold air that will be encountered on your device.

Reasons to Watch The Haunting of Hill House
Overall Rating:

A spectacular experience while watching a horror genre film is the time when you jump on your chair exclaiming ‘Ahh’. It’s not safe but it is quite agreeable to say that you have enjoyed a horror film. And like any horror film where there is Ghost and eerie door-opening scene, The Haunting of Hill House stands sundry to be precise. The Netflix Original is a perfect concoction of classic horror, marvellous acting, amazing script and a terribly scary direction. It’s a compliment though.

  • 1 Here are 4 Reasons to Watch The Haunting of Hill House
  • 2 How I Liked?

1. Horror jungle

Oh yes! The 10-episode TV series is indeed a horror jungle. There are so many Ghost that you’ll literally forget the count and any possible reason for their existence. The unnerving ghost scenes will literally give you jump-scares. If at any point you feel that it’s getting out-of-text, the show will bring you back with another creepy ghost.

2. The Story

No doubt, Shirley Jackson was an exceptional writer. This reimagined modern story of the classic horror tale is as much as dazzling as the old one. The spiral tale and uncertain events take place in a mere moment that you can’t prognosticate any event whatsoever. Although, you might get an impression that the house is ominous and haunted but it’s far more profound and satisfactory as the story reveals itself.

3. Yes, Jump-scares

I don’t think any horror genre TV or film is whole without Jump-scares. The shows Jump-scares are unprecedented, it comes where you least expect it. But with all that kept aside, it also manages to twitch your attention with some secret sinister signs, that you’ll only acknowledge if you’re being attentive.

4. Direction

The show’s direction is indeed remarkable. Director Mike Flanagan is no new in the horror genre, he has given some amazing film like Gerald’s Game, Before I wake and Hush. Every scene in the show has been strategically taken and placed at the right time, the scenes are being coordinated so well that you’ll able to connect the dot from the first episode to third. A perfect suspense recipe.

How I Liked?

Haunting of the hill house is a must for every horror movie buff, it has got all the string pulled to make a perfect eerie tone that you desire of. The cast has also done a great job staying true to their character and setting an evil scenario within the series. I’ll go with 9 out of 10 with this series, the ghost of Hill house will definitely leave you dazzled and scared.
