Tuesdays Netflix Binge: Santa Clarita Diet

Fort McMurray, AB, Canada / MIX 103.7

If you don’t like gore. Avoid this one.

The Santa Clarita Diet starts off with a normal suburban family. Sheila (Drew Barrymore) and Joel Hammond (Timothy Olyphant) with their daughter Abby (Liv Hewson).

Sheila and Joel are real estate agents who just want a normal life. While showing a house to a couple Sheila becomes violently and ill and *It gets a little gross here* starts vomiting everywhere. She runs to the bathroom while Joel keeps showing the home. When the showing is done he enters the bathroom to find Sheila dead on the floor with the room covered completely in vomit. Like I said; gross. He holds her crying until she suddenly wakes up. With a sense of relief, he takes her home.
After Sheila’s brush with death, she seems different; she’s more outgoing, more upbeat and strangest of all she only eats raw meat. It starts with chicken and beef but eventually she gets a taste for something a little more horrifying. People.

I won’t tell you much more than that so you can enjoy it for yourself. I rate Santa Clarita Diet at 8.5/10. It’s fun, enjoyable but super crazy gross.

Here’s the trailer. (Foul language warning)
