Best for: Quirky-romance lovers, anti-hero allies, and people with a dark sense of humour

It’s funny, twisted, and everything in between. It’s Dexter meets any quirky romance movie, but in all the right ways. The End of the F***ing World, and if you haven’t seen it yet, you’re definitely fucking missing out!

When 17-year-old Alyssa moves to a new high school, she meets James: a social outcast whose hobby is killing small animals. She’s determined to find her long-lost father, while he’s eager to make her his first human target. Together, they embark on a journey filled with unexpected twists and turns along the way.

This Netflix series is a romantic coming-of-age story about two odd yet inexplicably lovable characters. One is fully convinced he’s a psychopath, while the other is the embodiment of an angsty teen gone wild. There’s almost too much to enjoy, from the stunning cinematography to James and Alyssa’s quirkiness. However, what truly sets The End of the F***ing World apart is how it perfectly blends dark humour with the innocence of young, reckless love. The two lovebirds really start to grow on you, and by the last episode, you’ll find yourself rooting for these anti-heroes.

The End of the F***ing World is available for streaming on Netflix.
