Is Offering to the Storm on Netflix a scary movie or more triggering than anything else?
Netflix was all about love this weekend thanks to The Kissing Booth 2 and other romantic additions. For horror fans, there’s Offering to the Storm to watch, but is the movie more triggering than frightening?
As a fan of horror movies and hidden gems, I looked forward to watching Offering to the Storm on Netflix. However, this time, I jumped in not knowing much about the movie. I was aware it was part of a trilogy that follows detective Amaia Salazar, and Offering to the Storm featured her latest case.
I also knew the case was about missing babies, so this should have been my first warning. Other than that, I settled in to watch what I thought would be a good scare. Don’t get me wrong, it does offer a few thrills and the story is easy to follow along, but, in my humble opinion, the triggers aren’t worth it.
Please note there are spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched the movie!
Offering to the Storm is triggering
The first scene, the very first scene, is a man suffocating a baby. Immediately I was turned off. It’s not something that’s easy to watch and some people are more sensitive to scenes with kids than others, and I am one of them.
I decided to give the movie 10 minutes to turn things around, and it did, for the most part. It did continue to feature shocking scenes. The movie left a sour taste in my mouth.
The few scares don’t make up for it, unfortunately, as I feel most scenes were added in for shock value and don’t necessarily help the story.
Don’t take my word for it, though! The scenes may not be triggering to you. To know for sure, you’ll have to watch it! But if you can relate to my comments above and are a fan of violent scenes that feature children, don’t bother.
Have you watched Offering to the Storm? If so, what did you think about it? The movie is now streaming on Netflix.
