Best New Movies and Shows on Netflix for October 7th
The Midnight Club (Season 1)
Genre: Drama, Horror, Mystery
Cast: Samantha Sloyan, Zach Gilford, Iman Benson, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, Heather Langenkamp, Annarah Cymone, Chris Sumpter
Writer: Mike Flanagan, Leah Fong
Runtime: 59 mins
Now entering Netflix’s Flanaverse is the new Christopher Pike adaptation series helmed by Mike Flanagan and Leah Fong.
Although the series primarily adapts The Midnight Club from the vast Pike bibliography, many of his other stories are featured throughout.
The series is set inside a hospice where every night, they get together to tell spooky and scary stories. They also make a pact that if anyone dies, they must send a sign from beyond the grave.
Luckiest Girl Alive (2022)
Genre: Drama, Mystery, Thriller
Director: Mike Barker
Cast: Mila Kunis, Justine Lupe, Jennifer Beals
Writer: Jessica Knoll
Runtime: 115 min / 1h 55m
Mila Kunis leads the cast for this new Netflix thriller.
Compared to and akin to Gone Girl, here’s what you can expect from the new adaptation:
“A writer’s perfectly crafted New York City life starts to unravel when a true-crime documentary forces her to confront her harrowing high school history.”
Reviews haven’t been too kind to the movie thus far, with it currently carrying a 38% RottenTomatoes score at the time of publishing. Bill Goodykoontz at the Arizona Republic said Kunis carries the movie while others, such as Courtney Howard for Variety, said, “the film lacks a genuinely heartening pull.”
Conversations with a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes (Limited Series)
Genre: Documentary, Crime
Director: Joe Berlinger
Cast: Jeffrey Dahmer
Runtime: 58 mins
The Evan Peters limited series DAHMER has already broken records for Netflix in its first two weeks. Suppose you want to delve further into the depths. In that case, Netflix has a new companion documentary from Joe Berlinger (who is behind The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel, The Times Square Killer and The John Wayne Gacy Tapes).
With new exclusive interviews never heard before, Dahmer confesses to his gruesome crimes and offers further insight into his tortured mind.
