Yellowjackets fans can check out this Elijah Wood And Melanie Lynskey Netflix team-up between seasons

“I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore” is a great showcase for Lynskey, but it’s also a wonderful excuse for Wood to show his weird side, something he embraced post-“Lord of the Rings” in a big way. Remember, he played the creepy serial killer, Kevin, in “Sin City”, the stalkery Patrick in “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” and a straight-up psychopath in “Maniac.” The dude obviously loves to play outlandish characters, which makes his appearance in “Yellowjackets” even more fun.

His character, Walter, spends most of his time falling for Christina Ricci’s Misty and both are gloriously eccentric. Maybe dangerously so. This also isn’t the first time Wood has worked with Ricci, by the way. The two appeared together in Ang Lee’s “The Ice Storm” in 1997.

Their chemistry is also top-notch, but after watching “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore” you can’t help but hope that “Yellowjackets” throws Wood and Lynskey into more scenes with each other. Right now “Yellowjackets” feels like it’s living in that same “how does this exist?” weird world that much of Netflix’s early movies feel like. If you seek out Blair’s film I guarantee you’ll be looking to season 3 of “Yellowjackets” with some demanding eyes. 

You hear that, Showtime? We want more Melanie Lynskey and Elijah Wood on-screen!
