It’s probably a pretty boring and thankless job, creating the blurbs about movies on Netflix. Sometimes the little puns and inside jokes work — if you’ve already seen the movie being described. Other times it just makes you scroll on past.

Pulp Fiction

All crime stories have a beginning, a middle, and end. For two clueless hitmen at a diner, it’s not the usual order.



Who needs a four-star restaurant when you have a truck? Cooking with family really hits the spot.

The Exorcist

Is a little girl still a little girl if a demon lurks inside her? Two priests pray the answer is “yes”.

Troll Hunter

College students tracking killer bears get caught in a frightening trap. It’s not a teddy bear picnic.


The Babadook

When a little boy gets ghoulish, a scary book pops up…turning bedtime stories into deadtime stories.

No Country for Old Men

A hard-luck dude finds enough money to start over. But a certain individual with a weird haircut has other plans.



A man tries to escape eternal torture, one sacrificial murder at a time. A pinheaded monster has other plans.
