*Warning: spoilers ahead. If you haven't seen Fresh, look away now!*
A new dating thriller movie, Fresh on Hulu is enough to make you never want to meet another human being—let alone date one—ever again. If you’ve not yet seen it, let’s just say there’s a meat-cute, dates, sex, dancing, and oh yeah; cannibalism. While the genre may not be to everyone’s tastes (the puns just write themselves) fans are raving over it, as well as Sebastian Stan and Daisy Edgar-Jones’ performances in the new Hulu film.
To give you a brief overview with limited spoilers, Daisy’s character shows us the literal horrors of dating, after discovering her new love interest (Stan) is basically a modern-day Hannibal Lecter. The film begins like any rom-com, but swiftly takes a dark turn...
And fans have been posting on social media in droves about the movie, with many left horrified over the *ahem* more violent parts. Others were left captivated by performances from Normal People’s Daisy Edgar-Jones and Pam & Tommy star Sebastian Stan. So why not take a gander through all the very best reactions to Fresh...and watch it yourself, if you dare...
