“Rarely seen something so bad”: Internet users bleed this new Netflix series

On the new releases program for Friday June 10, Netflix offered First Kill, a new series that had everything to please fans of Vampire Diaries and Twilight. The fiction highlights a young vampire named Juliette, played by Sarah Catherine Hook, who recently revealed a little filming secret. As she is about to make her first victim, to find her place in her family of vampires, she meets a newcomer to town named Calliope (Imani Lewis). The latter comes from a famous line of vampire hunters. If the two young girls quickly understand that they represent a danger to each other, they cannot help but also feel a great attraction. Combining love story and twists and turns, it’s no surprise that First Kill has already reached the top of the Netflix top 10, just behind Peaky Blinders, highly watched since its release, and Stranger Things, became the most viewed series of the year on the platform. Nevertheless, it seems that the teen drama did not appeal to the majority of Internet users. And the latter did not fail to give their opinion on this new fiction, inspired by a short story written by the author Victoria Schwab.

“I fell asleep in front”, “It’s an international disgrace”… Internet users ruthless with the Netflix series First Kill

If at first, Netflix subscribers were eagerly awaiting this new series on vampires, the episodes of First Kill rather chilled them. “I’ve rarely seen something as bad as First Kill”, “It’s so bad First Kill, I’m crying”, “I wanted to watch First Kill (because a friend said it was too bad) , but I fell asleep in front of it”, said these netizens. As for this viewer, he compared the series to “a Wattpad story” (a social network where everyone can share their writings), while another criticized the special effects. “I finished First Kill, but it really sucked. The shit of special effects at that time, it’s an international disgrace. Like there are they said to each other ‘ok nickel let’s get this out‘ ??? Wow”.

The fans thus join our journalist, who for his part lamented “a scenario already seen hundreds of times and a staging without originality”. In addition to a bad scenario, netizens also lamented the bad acting of the two actresses Sarah Catherine Hook (Juliet) and Imani Lewis (Calliope). “Well, I finished First Kill, a series that I easily call ‘My biggest disappointment of 2022’. A hypersexualization of lesbian couples, as usual. Characters with no real background who change their minds like shirts”, “First Kill, normally, it’s serious the kind of thing I watch. But please, it sucks. Too badly written and too badly acted”, “First Kill opinion: gay does not mean good. It’s childish, too fast, quickly sucks. The characters, especially the 2 protagonists are uninteresting. In short, if it’s to rely only on the ‘it’s lesbian’ part and neglect the story, keep it to yourself. Even as a teenager, I would not have followed”. If Netflix subscribers tend to ask for a season 2 right after the release of a new series, this will probably not be the case for First Kill.
