When news first broke that Hollywood had greenlit a film adaptation of author E.L. James’ smutty best-selling novel Fifty Shades of Grey, sex-crazed readers and book club housewives around the world seemingly rejoiced. Thus, a realm of whips, chains, sex, and betrayal soon became the norm in Hollywood’s erotic trilogy, which included a pointless yet steamy sequel in 2017’s Fifty Shades Darker.

Directed by James Foley, the second entry in the risqué franchise sought to explore the newly-found relationship between soft-spoken English student Anastasia Steele and billionaire entrepreneur Christian Grey. After having met in the first film, the two main characters unfold their darkest fantasies and secrets in the hopes to maintain a long-lasting relationship together. And, if memory serves folks correctly, the relationship between Steele and Grey bordered on unhealthy, toxic, manipulative and sadistic.

On the other hand, Fifty Shades Darker was unapologetically bashed by critics tenfold and currently holds a less-than-favorable 11% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Amidst horrid critics’ reviews and the general displeasure from moviegoers across the globe, Fifty Shades Darker has seemingly found a new life on streaming and successfully shot up several spots on the charts and. As per FlixPatrol, the steamy sequel cracked into the iTunes Top 10 this week in several countries — proving that even the most pointless sequels can still electrify on streaming.
