Day of the Dead added to Netflix Australia this week

It’s a busy week in mid-May on Netflix Australia with the addition of 49 new additions to the library. Here’s what’s new on Netflix Australia this week and the top 10s for May 15th, 2021.

First of all, here are the past week’s top highlights:

Love, Death & Robots (Volume 2) N

Volumes: 2 | Episodes: 26
Genre: Animation, Short, Comedy  | Runtime: 15 Minutes
Cast: Scott Whyte, Nolan North, Matthew Yang King, Chris Cox, Time Winters

We thought we’d be waiting years before seeing the next volume of Love, Death & Robots, but Netflix surprised us by adding eight brand new unique episodes for its second volume.

Day of the Dead (1985)

Director: George A. Romero
Genre: Horror, Thriller | Runtime: 96 Minutes
Cast: Lori Cardille, Terry Alexander, Joseph Pilato, Sherman Howard, Gary Howard Klar

The godfather of the zombie genre, George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead is constantly overlooked by its Dawn of the Dead counterpart, but zombie lovers shouldn’t sleep on the mid-80s classic.

Zombies have taken over the world, leaving very few humans alive struggling to survive. In a secret underground bunker, a team of researchers and military personnel are trying to determine what should be done about the hordes of the undead when the dead show signs of small intelligence, retaining what used to make them human.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie (1990)

Director: Steve Barron
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy  | Runtime: 93 Minutes
Cast: Judith Hoag, Elias Koteas, Josh Pais, David Forman, Brian Tochi

Younger audiences can be forgiven for thinking the costumes are nightmare fuel-inducing, but for those that grew up in the 90s, watching the live-action TMNT movies will be pure nostalgia.

Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michaelangelo, four teenage turtles mutated by a mysterious ooze emerge from the sewers of New York City to protect citizens from the evil Shredder and his gang of criminal ninjas.
