If you read romance novels, I’m guessing you’ve heard of Passionflix. It’s a streaming platform (similar to Netflix) but the focus is on romantic movies. But what makes Passionflix most interesting to romancelandia is that they are adapting romance novels into movies.
I recently signed up for Passionflix. It costs $5.99 a month. I have access to the movies they have in their catalog, and any new romance novel adaptations they release. I believe they are trying to release a new adaptation every other month. Passionflix is very new and there is one adaptation they’ve released, Hollywood Dirt based on the book of the same name by Alessandra Torre (I will review this movie separately). In November they will release Afterburn/Aftershock based on books by Sylvia Day and in December they will be releasing The Trouble with Mistletoe based on Jill Shalvis’s novel.
I was very excited about Passionflix when I first heard about it. First, because I love romance – whether in book form or movie form. But what really drew my attention to Passionflix is that they are adapting romance novels into movies. Because, honestly, that never really happens. I will say that right now, Passionflix does not have a huge selection of movies to choose from. I think there are only around 30 movies to watch. They have classics like Roman Holiday, they have comedies like Clueless and The Beautician and the Beast, they have adventure movies like Sahara.
I do wish there were more movies in their catalog, but as it’s such a new company, I’m willing to give them some time to build their collection. But honestly, the real reason I signed up for Passionflix is their original content. I’m particularly excited for The Trouble with Mistletoe. So if you are a fan of romance novels, and you have a spare $6 a month, give it a try.
