Get ready for some mind-bending revelations — not one or two, but seven of them.

It’s a shame that we don’t get more anthology series. Everyone’s out there making movie series or TV shows following the same guys, but an anthology is a different breed altogether: it holds more stories, more characters, and thus, far more potential plot twists and unpredictable decisions its creators can use to make your head spin.

As rare as they are, a good anthology series is a true gem — and this particular one has been overlooked by many before finally storming Netflix ’s Top 10 recently.

Don’t Fear Your Nightmares and Daydreams

Coming out this year as a treat for all connoisseurs of anthologies, supernatural, sci-fi, and supernatural sci-fi anthologies (what a mouthful), Joko Anwar’s Nightmares and Daydreams takes a spin at the ages-old mysteries of how our world came to be and what future holds for it. By the way, creator Joko Anwar’s name is officially included in the title, so don’t get confused.

Nightmares and Daydreams features seven episodes, each telling a standalone story about ordinary people facing things they can’t explain, things that have a meaning for our entire kind but are difficult to understand. A taxi driver, an orphan, a struggling author, a fisherman, a cinema worker, an electronics technician, and a diamond appraiser — all of them have to encounter something terrifying.

Nightmares and Daydreams Storms Netflix

Despite having only premiered on June 14, just over a week ago, Joko Anwar’s Nightmares and Daydreams is already doing rather splendidly. On Rotten Tomatoes, the anthology series boasts a picture-perfect 100% Critic Score and a fitting 77% Audience Score, whereas IMDb awarded it a less impressive 6.6/10 score.

Meanwhile, the new TV show also made its way to Netflix’s Top 10 global chart, marking another success. Impressive for its first week out, but there’s a little catch: the great scores Nightmares and Daydreams currently has on RT has emerged from just five critic reviews as of the time of writing, so its picture-perfect numbers can go down as soon as one journalist finds something about it unappealing.

But definitely take this series a spin if you’re a fan of supernatural and sci-fi — we’ve only been hearing good things about it so far.
