Hot Skull (2022) – A Netflix Miniseries – Linguistic Dystopia

A Psychological Scif-Fi Drama Series

Hot Skull (Sicak kafa) is a science-fiction miniseries created by Umur Turagay and Mert Baykal starring Hulya Koseoglu, Uzay Gökhan Irmak and Güney Coska.

A linguistic dystopia brought to us from Turkey, in which a semantic virus afflicts the world.

Premise

Murat finds himself alone, being the only person immune to the virus that has led to a pandemic, which afflicted thought, causing madness and spread via speech. He is on a quest to identify the secret to his immunity, his “hot skull”, which forces him outside the safe zone.

About the Series

Reminiscent of the 2008 movie adaptation of Saramago’s novel ‘Blindness’, we are given a portrayal of a wretched societal scenario in this mini-series that manages to approach sci-fi in a different way. You see, if you are not Steven Spielberg, you will not be granted the massive budget, and will have to recur to other “gimmicks” to pull the production off. In ‘Hot Skull” we are given an interesting cinematic view where Turkish movie industry ventures into new terrain, sci-fi.

If you are on the look out for sci-fi that is slightly different, without spectacular photography, and a more human approach, ‘Hot Skull’ might just be it.
