2020 FILM & TV RECOMMENDATIONS

2020 has been an exceptional year for television. I’d be hard-pressed to pick my favourite series, though I am edging Raised by Wolves into pole position; a wonderful blend of science fiction & horror.

If your tastes are similar to mine, I wholeheartedly recommend the following too:

The Outsider
Channel Zero – Dream Door & Butcher’s Block (these two I hadn’t seen before this year but Candle Cover and No End-House are also terrific)
Kingdom Series 2
Bosch Series 1 – 6
The Mandalorian
Gangs of London
Castle Rock.

I’ve been recommending horror films all through the year in my SM, but my shortlist of the horror films I watched for the first time in 2020 and recommend would include:

Relic
Possessor
Antiviral
Vigil
Gretel and Hansel
His House
Sputnik
Underwater
Dead Center

Beyond horror, I recommend the war films:
Unknown Soldier (on a par with Saving Private Ryan)
Mosul
12 Strong
Mank
The Lighthouse
Parasite

All good.
