The horror anthology Murder Manual starring Emilia Clarke releases on Amazon Prime

The news of new film and TV content is far and few in between during the coronavirus pandemic. So, naturally, when anything pops up, it catches our attention, especially if it has something that interests us. And it’s no surprise that things related to Game of Thrones pique our interest quite a lot. Thus, we stopped when the trailer of Emilia Clarke’s (Daenerys Targaryen) horror outing, Murder Manual dropped recently. It’s an anthology film consisting of eight short tales of horror, drama, and suspense by eight directors; which have been compiled into a 1-hour 31-minute movie. Now, the film has also landed on Amazon Prime to rent or stream.

Emilia Clarke’s part in the anthology is named Shackled, a short film shot way back in 2012. It was one of the earlier roles of the English actress in her career. Clarke plays Malu, a young woman entrapped by a circus. After frantic attempts, she is rescued by her husband. But disturbing voices and memories haunt her afterward. In the trailer, she can be seen horrified, running, and confronting ‘a secret’ that chases and eludes her at the same time. Emilia’s look seems that of a classic damsel in distress, albeit she is married to Jesse (Hadley Fraser).

The trailer gives us short glimpses of the other stories, which are difficult to fathom just from the video; a little girl going through a horrifying experience with her father, a train ride shared by two people, a couple of scarecrow-faced guys, worms, vampires, and a looming presence of evil. The official description provides a little clarity. “Held captive by a circus, Malu is frantically rescued from her shackles by her husband. The Silent is a short film which tells of a little girl’s journey from a world of nightmares to the nightmare of reality. A gay couple’s romantic getaway in Palm Springs turns deadly. A social horror-thriller about a young woman whose rideshare turns deadly.”

Thus, we can assume that a lot of things turn deadly in the haunted chapters of this “book of horror”. Although the stories all seem distinct from each other, the producers have insisted that the viewers should watch every tale carefully as they all bear some sort of connection.

Besides Emilia and Hadley, it also stars Isaac Anderson, Maria Olsen, Sally Hughes, and Anthony Goss. A presentation of Hewes Pictures and Freedom Cinema, Murder Manual is available on Amazon Prime. The reviews haven’t really been encouraging, but give it a shot if you find the cast appealing or if the horror genre speaks to you like none other.

Jason Momoa went broke after his Game of Thrones exit

Very often we idolize celebrities from our favourite shows and movies. When we think of them, their lifestyle, their riches and wardrobe glistens in front of our eyes. We as fans want to be like them, but sometimes forget the struggles they’ve been through to get there. Game of Thrones macho man, Jason Momoa, is one of the most down-to-earth actors one has ever seen. In an interview with InStyle, the actor talked about his struggles in real life.

Jason Momoa went broke after his Game of Thrones exit

I mean, we were starving after Game of Thrones,” he said. “I couldn’t get work. It’s very challenging when you have babies and you’re completely in debt.” Things got better for him after being cast as the Aquaman in Justice League. His solo movie Aquaman solidified his position as a great actor.

The 41-year-old actor also talked about being bullied when young. “I got beat up a lot,” he said. “Just for being slightly different—it was gnarly. I mean, I wore Birkenstocks in middle school, and it was like, ‘You are a freak!’”

It is tough to imagine, someone who played the fierce Khal Drogo had to face bullying at school. Also, the interview proves the fact that celebrities have real-life problems too. You can be broke even if you’re famous.

Jason Momoa is set to appear in the highly awaited movie Dune. What do you think of Momoa’s rise to success? Talk to us in the comments below!
