Compulsions is compelling storytelling

Simply brilliant (and brilliantly simple), Compulsions is a thrilling dramatic web series, created by Bernie Su, illustrating that no one is exactly who they appear to be, or who we think they are.
Most “normal” people repress whatever dark desires they may have— or so we like to assume, but Compulsions reveals three inter-connected individuals who privately engage these destructive tendencies, instead.
Quite effectively, the series depicts the social/psychological contrast between the characters' daily lives and secret lives.
Narratively flawless and driven by interesting characters both well conceived and acted, Compulsions compels me to watch the fascinating dichotomy... despite the somehow delightful sick and twistedness of it all.
Perhaps I should feel wrong for being entertained or intrigued-- as if with a guilty pleasure, but the story is so good & presented in such a marvelous way... that there is nothing to be ashamed of.
