BLOODRIDE
March 13, 2020  | By David Bianculli

Netflix, 3:00 a.m. ET

 
SERIES PREMIERE: This new Netflix series originates from another country: Norway, to be specific, where it’s known under the title of Blodtur. It’s a horror anthology series in which a half-dozen passengers board a mysterious bus, each telling a different eerie story before disembarking. Six twisted tales, as the promo announces. And six subtitled stories. If you’ve seen any TV series or movies from Norway, you know just the type of bleakness and weirdness to expect. If not, you’re in for quite a ride on this magic bus. In one story, a young woman attends a writing seminar, where the teacher advises, “Is there any one you hate?,” then adds, “Write them into your story – and kill them.” Then there’s the one about the costume party, in which the person in the goofy-looking elephant suit begins acting very menacing, starting with using a smartphone to send rude “trunk pics.” That episode’s title? The Elephant in the Room. C’mon. How can you not be curious?
