New Releases on Netflix UK (2nd January)


HAPPY NEW YEAR and welcome back to the What’s On Netflix UK update. There has been a lot of additions this last week so I’m just going to pick out a few highlights.

One of my favourite films from the 90’s, “Cube”, was added this week. The film sees six strangers trapped in a maze of cubes – many of which are death traps. Will they survive? How will they get out? Why are they even in there? “Cube” is a great, original story and is very well put together. Highly recommended if you like slightly twisted, confusing horror films. Lots of other horror films have also been added including “The Omen”, “Leprechaun: Origins”, “See No Evil 2” and more.

“Locke” was a hidden gem from 2013. This British drama revolves around Ivan Locke, a construction manager, as he drives down to London from Birmingham after receiving a phone call. A series of calls are made and received as his life starts taking a dramatic turn and he tries to keep his job and family intact by telling them of an important secret he has been keeping to himself…

Animé fans will be pleased by the addition of a number of new shows: “Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin)”, “Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji)”, “Blue Exorcist (Ao no ekusoshisuto)”, “Ghost in the Shell (Kokaku Kidotai)”, “High School of the Dead (Gakuen Mokushiroku)”, “Psycho-Pass (Saiko Pasu)”.

Lots of new series have been added for existing TV shows as well as some new ones too: Season 5 of the brilliant Channel 4 show “Misfits”, season 4 of “Johnny Bravo” and, in a Netflix exclusive, all the seasons of “Pretty Little Liars” with the latest episodes being added every Thursday.

Younger viewers may enjoy 2014’s “Postman Pat: The Movie” where Pat wins a TV talent show and starts to live his dream of being a superstar. But what will happen to the post and what’s this robot postman that seems to have come along…?

Read on for the full list of this week’s additions:
