“A Netflix series that follows the descent into hell of a young woman (Rosa Salazar) dreaming of making it big in the Hollywood. We discover how far she must go to make a feature film, and to do that, she has to put up with lots of vomiting kittens, occult and revenge in equal measures. It relentlessly portrays the power dynamics, revenge and the consequences that arise from it. In the later course of the series, these developments are also reflected in grotesque body horror, which uncomfortably unites a weird melange of genres. Combined with Rosa Salazaru0026#39;s impressive screen presence and Catherine Keeneru0026#39;s provocative portrayal of Boro.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHowever the 2nd half of the series took a downturn with cheesy moments and forced storylines. The series starts off compelling and then just kind of goes off the deep end with weak dialogues and rushed screenplay. It recalls David Cronenberg, Lucile Hadzihalilovi, some Hong Kong Cat III sleaze-fest, Nicolas Winding Refn aesthetics, and tries hard to be Lynchian. Thereu0026#39;s Patrick Fischler who is famous for the Winkieu0026#39;s scene in Lynchu0026#39;s u0026quot;Mulholland Driveu0026quot; as Alvin Sender. I felt like this had a lot of potential but I just wasnu0026#39;t enjoying myself anymore in the last half but it partially attempts to get back on track towards the very end and feels rushed.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere is comic relief, Jonathan who plays Louu0026#39;s son and I donu0026#39;t know if it was intentional or not. His role was very amusing. Even the kitten puking thing will begin to seem more normative after repeated. Felt it was stretched, I was even laughing. I see the u0026quot;goreu0026quot; the series was after, but it didnu0026#39;t come through in full circle except for the fisting scene.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIn any case, Brand New Cherry Flavor is one of those visual experiences that is truly one horrifying series, but the horrifying doesnu0026#39;t really feel earned. A lot of weird feelings surrounding this series. This will definitely be a hard slog for general viewers for itu0026#39;s uncanny atmosphere even if it doesnu0026#39;t necessarily pay it off but will leave a lasting impression for those who can go into this series with an open mind.”
