Kismet (2022)
Amina Akhtar
"Amina Akhtar yet again brings her wickedly wicked style to this twisty thriller about a woman who's finally taken charge of her life - only to find dead bodies piling up around her in the wellness community where she's starting over. Kismet is a page-turner populated by eerie ravens and people who aren't what they seem in a perfectly unsettling desert setting."
