If you want to know what to watch this weekend then we’re here to give you the lowdown on this week’s biggest and best film, TV and documentary additions on Netflix UK. Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to Netflix in the UK in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix UK:
It’s October, we’re coming up to Halloween so, of course, we have a brand new Netflix horror film: There’s Someone Inside Your House based on the New York Times best-selling young-adult novel by Stephanie Perkins. The story follows a teenager in Nebraska whose friends get picked killed off one by one – but always by someone wearing a mask of the victim. Sticking with the horror theme we have the horror-comedy Bad Hair – set in 1989, an aspiring VJ is pressured into getting a weave. Her new hair could help her get ahead – if it didn’t have a mind of its own… Turkish mystery thriller Grudge follows a police chief who uncovers a grudge-fueled plot that threatens his colleagues after becoming embroiled in a fatal incident.
Thriller The Lighthouse is set in the 1890s and tells the story of two lighthouse keepers who try to maintain their sanity while living on a remote and mysterious New England island. We also have an interactive Halloween special based on the popular WWE characters in Escape The Undertaker; as well as a new stand-up comedy special Dave Chappelle: The Closer.
For TV this week we have the fourth and final season of On My Block which picks up right after the Season 3 finale time jump where our friends have gone their separate ways. But when a secret is unburied, they quickly learn you can’t run from the past and they will need to stick together to survive. In Netflix’s new sitcom Pretty Smart Harvard-educated Chelsea is unexpectedly dumped by her boyfriend and forced to move in with her bubbly, carefree sister and her three lovably eccentric, not-so-intellectual roommates. Channel 4 mini-series Adult Material sees a veteran British porn star as she navigates the changing industry and questions around abuse of power while parenting her three children. Finally for TV this week we have the true-life drama The Billion Dollar Code – set in 1990s Berlin, an artist and a hacker invented a new way to see the world but years later, they reunite to sue Google for infringing their patent with Google Earth.
Documentaries this week include Bad Sport which looks at six unbelievable stories at the intersection of sports and crime, as told by the athletes, coaches and law enforcement officials at the center of the controversies. Hindi series House of Secrets: The Burari Deaths delves into the curious story and chilling truths and theories surrounding the deaths of 11 members of a Delhi family.
For children and families this week we the brand new Pokémon film: Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle which sees Ash and Pikachu meet Koko and a solitary Zarude while visiting the jungle and learn of a plot to destroy their home. Based on the popular, but overpriced, toy LOL Surprise: The Movie sees Queen Bee and Royal Bee make their first movie with help from their fashionable friends in this one-of-a-kind magical adventure. Finally for kids TV we have animated series A Tale Dark & Grimm which follows Hansel and Gretel as they walk out of their own story into a winding and wickedly witty tale full of strange — and scary — surprises.
