So, you've just finished Stranger Things 2, you've seen the latest episode of Riverdale and you're STILL gutted about Rick and Morty leaving our screens for another...however long. What're you gonna do? Exactly this: shut the curtains, buy a giant bag of popcorn and settle down for a marathon binge watch of The Sinner. At 8 episodes long, it's perfect for a lazy Sunday in bed, and exactly what you need if you get easily hooked on TV shows, especially the Netflix variety.
The Sinner stars Jessica Biel, Christopher Abbot (of GIRLS fame) and Bill Pullman in a suspenseful detective thriller which will keep you guessing until the very end. Biel stars as Cora Tanneti, a wife and mother who ends up savagely murdering an unsuspecting victim at the beach (while her husband, son, and hundreds of onlookers watch in horror). But, why him? Why there and then?
She doesn't know, and neither does anyone else. Enter Bill Pullman as Detective Ambrose, who is determined to find out why Cora killed a man with no motive or idea why she did it. You may think you have it all figured out, but this show will keep you on your toes until the very end. Was it sexually motivated? Has she done this before? And what exactly happened in those two months when Cora went missing? With twists and turns in every direction, this show will have you thinking of every possible answer before giving you the actual reason behind Cora's brutal murder on the beach.
Featuring crazy religious parents, some very weird incest scenes, cult vibes and amazing acting from all of the actors involved, you don't want to miss out on this years Netflix Newcomer. This is perfect if you're definitely not in the Christmas Spirit just yet, and would love to get your head around something whilst everyone is putting up their Christmas decorations five years early. If you're a fan of Gone Girl, Get Out, The OA and Ozark, then you'll love this.
Directed by Derek Simonds, you can find The Sinner on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and we suspect Sky Atlantic very soon. Watch the trailer below:
