Title: Swarm

Genre: Horror, Dark Humor, Comedy

Where to Watch: Amazon Prime


Why It's a Must Watch

Swarm is a brilliant commentary on toxic fandom, and it's a shame it had to take such a dark and violent turn to get the point across. But that's exactly what makes it so effective. It forces us to confront the dangers of idolizing celebrities and putting them on pedestals, and the consequences that can come from taking that obsession too far.

And let's be real, we've all been there. We've all had a celebrity crush or a favorite artist that we stan so hard for. We've all defended them in arguments and dragged anyone who dared to criticize them on social media. But at what point does that fandom become unhealthy? At what point do we start to lose sight of reality and start to believe that our favorite artist can do no wrong?

That's the question at the heart of Swarm, and it's a question that's more relevant now than ever. With social media and the internet, it's easier than ever to become a part of a fandom and feel like you're a part of something bigger than yourself. But that can also lead to a sense of entitlement and a feeling that you're owed something from the celebrity you stan. And when that sense of entitlement isn't met, it can lead to anger, resentment, and even violence.

But Swarm isn't just a cautionary tale. It's also a fantastic horror-thriller mixed with dark comedy that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The performances are top-notch, especially Dominique Fishback's chilling turn as Dre. And the writing is sharp and witty, with plenty of dark humor to balance out the brutal violence.

Overall, Swarm is a must-watch for anyone who's ever been a part of a fandom or has even a passing interest in horror or thriller genres. It's a bold and daring series that tackles important issues with style and substance, and it's further proof that Donald Glover is one of the most innovative and exciting voices in television today.

Stream all episodes of Swarm on March 17 on Amazon Prime Video.
