An actor, producer and director rolled in one, Tyler Perry already has an impressive repertoire of films under his belt, and the latest to the party is Netflix’s A Fall From Grace. When asked what inspired him to make A Fall From Grace, Perry’s answer was simply that he enjoys writing for women, and that he hopes to encapsulate the struggles and helplessness they face accurately. Described as ominous and suspenseful, the crime thriller stars Crystal Fox as Grace Waters in this mind-twisting mayhem where seemingly gentle Grace admits to committing a not-so-innocent murder.
Who should watch it: Beholding plot twists and unimaginable secrets, the film promises an emotional rollercoaster to satisfy all the whodunit junkies out there. Those who appreciate African-American representation in film will also enjoy this Jordan Peele-esque style production.

Praise Satan! Season 3 of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina picks up right where Season 2 left off, with young warlock Nicholas Scratch in Hell with Lucifer trapped within him, and a distraught Sabrina Spellman trying to bring Nicholas back. In the meantime, without their (ex-)High Priest Faustus Blackwood and their powers dwindling without Lucifer, the coven finds themselves under attack from pagan witches.
The season concludes with a rather timely twist – will Sabrina reign as Queen of Hell or return to a quiet life in Greendale? Watch on to find out.
Who should watch it: While this is nowhere as eerie as Netflix’s The Haunting Of Hill House, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is spooky and gripping in its own right, and fans of all things supernatural will surely be happy to indulge in this.
