HBO Limited Series: The Third Day

Recommended Posts

Really enjoyable first episode. It had a creepy kid, a clannish insular island cult, and animal sacrifice. Basically the plot involved Jude Law getting stuck on an island where weird shit's happening. Good acting, engaging mystery, and outstanding cinematography.

Midsommar Island? 

Yeah, kind of. That did come to mind.

Edit: Never saw The Wicker Man.

You should watch the original. The OG of this genre.

Thanks. Just added it to my watch list. I'm just going to assume the Nick Cage one won't be worth my time unless y'all say otherwise.

Yes, skip the remake. The original is dated, but is a classic.

You have blasphemed the One True God. Prepare for judgement.

The Cage variant isn't half bad.  But the original has that Hammer Films feel to it, bolstered by Christopher Lee.  And some nekkid Britt Ekland frolicking.

Serious question---I wanna watch this with the wife since we are looking for content as we knock out the whole DVR.....but I got the impression from the few minutes I watched flipping around the other night...does Jude Law or somebody else lose a child in the first episode or does it hint that somebody will be losing a child soon?  Wife can't handle that right now, I barely could.  Otherwise, I'm in...looks engaging.

Apparently quite some time ago.
