Social media users have had their fair share of opinions on the film. One user described the film in a Tweet as -
"The Kitchen on Netflix had no storyline. Just dramatic for nothing. Didn't make sense. They put the whole movie in the trailer too."
A separate tweeter added -
‘I expected more from that "the kitchen" movie sha; how can the trailer be more fye than the actual movie.’
Another was on the contrary describing the film as ‘shot beautifully’ stating -
‘I love watching movies that are just a story about a point in time. So The Kitchen was good to me. Shot beautifully and almost like a Black Mirror episode.’

As anticipation builds for its release, audiences can expect a unique cinematic experience that surpasses traditional storytelling.
