demi lovato dancing with the devil trailer

Things looked like they were on the upswing for Demi Lovato in 2018. At just 25 years old, the pop singer had tallied a billion views for her music videos on YouTube, scored a Grammy nomination, two Billboard Pop Song number one hits, and was counting six years sober after a battle with addiction early in her teens. But Lovato’s relapse would land her in the hospital after a near-fatal overdose on July 28, 2018. And a new YouTube Original documentary shows just how close it was for the pop star.

“I had three strokes. I had a heart attack. My doctors said that I had five to ten more minutes,” Lovato says in the trailer for Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil. The four-part docuseries comes to YouTube in March, and you can watch the trailer below.

quarantine stream halloween atmospheres

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Movie: Halloween Atmospheres by Witching Season Films

Where You Can Stream It: YouTube (and Below)

The Pitch: The folks at Witching Season Films put together two videos full of “Halloween atmospheres.” That is, a series of shots of various Halloween decorations in fall-like settings. It sounds harmless, but there’s something undeniably ominous about it all. And also wonderful.

Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: In my previous Quarantine Stream, I mentioned that we’re more or less about to jump into Halloween season. In case you thought I was just having a laugh, I’m back to keep this theme alive, baby! While Halloween will be much different this year – what with the deadly pandemic and all – there’s no reason we can’t keep the spooky season alive.

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Series: Chloe Ting

Where You Can Stream It: YouTube

The Pitch: Pint-sized (she’s only 5’1!) but remarkably strong fitness vlogger Chloe Ting guides you through a series of free two- to four-week workout programs she calls “challenges,” which are made up of a combination of HIIT (high-intensity interval training) and pilates, to “help you get closer to those defined abs.”

Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: I’m the last person to willingly work out. During PE in school, I was one of those who would rather walk around the track than run the mile. I avoid the gym (unless it’s a yoga class) like the plague. But four months into quarantine, and on my second meal of ramen that week, I was starting to feel the weight I had put on by not stepping outside in days. I had actually begun quarantine with a goal to be productive, and one of those goals was fitness — I had even researched a few fitness videos on YouTube and watched them wistfully while lying on my couch. But after going through several videos by Chloe Ting, the most popular fitness vlogger in lockdown thanks to a viral TikTok trend, and thinking, “I could do that,” I decided to suck it up and do her fastest two-week workout, during which I found out that I could, in fact, not. But three days away from finishing her “2 Weeks Shred,” I find myself feeling the impossible: motivated to work out and excited to try more.

quarantine stream nomadic ambience

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Movie: Various short films from YouTube Channel Nomadic Ambience

Where You Can Stream It: YouTube

The Pitch: A series of high-quality videos that are part ASMR, part haunting road trip.

Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: Can’t get away right now? We’re all pretty much in the same boat. But with Nomadic Ambience, you can get a glimpse at locations across the world. Stroll through a New York snowstorm; watch the sunset off the coast of Portland, Maine; see the waves crash near the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. It’s all available at the click of a button.

The Quarantine Stream The Centrifuge Brain Project

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Movie: The Centrifuge Brain Project

Where You Can Stream It: YouTube (and below)

The Pitch: A short film following Dr. Nick Laslowicz and his experiments with physically impossible amusement park rides and their effect on cognitive function.

Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: The summer is halfway over, and let’s face it: things aren’t going to magically get better. The summer of 2020 might as well not exist. But we can dream. Dream of escape, of letting go, of finding ourselves out in the world again, amongst the crush of humanity. The Centrifuge Brain Project can be viewed as an amusing little curiosity, with its CGI-created amusement park rides that could never exist in the real world. But there’s something unexpectedly poetic at work here that makes the entire 6-plus-minute film both beautiful and haunting.
