Extra Ordinary Is The Horror-Comedy On Netflix You Need Right Now
Horror-comedy film Extra Ordinary dropped on Netflix this week, and it’s just the film to get you through self-isolation.
The film is about driving instructor Rose (Maeve Higgins) who has ‘supernatural abilities’. Rose is called by a concerned father, Martin (Barry Ward), who believes his daughter is possessed and that he’s being haunted by his late wife.
Despite Rose having a love-hate relationship with her abilities, she decides to help Martin – who’s surname is also Martin – and his daughter Sarah (Emma Coleman) anyway.
In addition to this, Rose is targeted by one-hit wonder rockstar Christian Winter (Will Forte) who’s in desperate need of a virgin to sacrifice in a satanic pact that will bring him fame.
Basically, I’d describe it as The Exorcist mixed with Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and a splash of Jennifer’s Body.
The film, which was released March 2019, has rave reviews – with Rotten Tomatoes giving it an impressive 97%.
As one reviewer said:
For all the Blood Moon horror movie hijinks and unwelcome visitors from the beyond and from hell, Extra Ordinary is at heart a warm and inviting Comfort Food Movie…
While another review from this month said:
Extra Ordinary is 90 odd minutes of quirky, warm and hilarious fun, and exactly the kind of movie we need right now.
While speaking about the impressive cast, another reviewer said:
Thanks to the strengths of its cast, “Extra Ordinary” has a few mild sight gags that get the job done, but the film mostly relies on the sturdiness of these characters and how they’re portrayed.
So, to sum up – you need to watch it, and it’s sure to put a smile on your face during these unprecedented times.
