September continues to be an outstanding month for titles. We take a look at what’s coming your way over the next 7 days.

Fall is in the air and a legit reason to isolate yourself and stream is upon us: cooler weather. Sure, we find ways of doing it in the summer. “I have sun poisoning.” “I have a heat rash!” “My doctor said I have to be in air-conditioning up to 18 hours a day!” All good reasons. But autumn is the best time. Lots of new titles are out and you have even more to look forward to.

This week brings some titles great for this time of year. Zombies and horror stories are always welcome in fall. Take a moment to look over what Netflix has to offer over the next few days.
