We trust you had a great Christmas and are now busy preparing for the new year festivities! If you’re planning a night in then we have some great updates this week to whet your appetite.
But, before we get onto this week’s additions there’s some bad news… Well, depending how you look at it then it might be bad news! There are over 100 films and TV shows being removed from Netflix UK in the start of the new year. For the full list head over to New On Netflix’s “Last Chance” page here: https://uk.newonnetflix.info/lastchance. If you’re wondering why so many things being removed is a good thing then see it as keeping the content fresh – out with the old, in with the new!
Horror/slasher fans will enjoy a few of this week’s additions. First up is “Green Room” starring the late Anton Yelchin alongside the mighty Patrick Stewart. When a punk band get’s booked in a remote club for their final gig of a tour, it’s not long until things go sour. The band witness a murder by the neo-nazi club owners and must then fight for their lives.
One of the ‘fun’ slashers is “Friday the 13th: Part 5: A New Beginning” which takes a slightly different turn as Jason is not the killer this time (he was killed in Part 4 [which is available on Netflix until 1st Jan]). Tommy, who previously killed Jason, is living in a sheltered home to recover but when the gruesome murders start happening again we are left wondering just who is causing such a high body count…
The 2013 remake of the classic “Evil Dead” has also arrived this week bringing with it a plethora of un-dead creatures and monsters. The cause of these devilish swarms? Five friends staying in a remote cabin who summon them when they find a ‘Book of The Dead’.
Two anime series have had updates added this week. “AJIN: Demi-Human” has had season 2 added and “Vampire Knight” has been made available to stream again.
Romantic comedy “The Intervention” sees four couples on a trip away together – but then they discover that it was a planned intervention to try and fix their marriages. The peaceful trip soon becomes an emotional free-for-all.
For the younger viewers we have both the 2004 animated “The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie” and the slightly odd “Big Top Pee-wee” film.
And finally for this week Netflix have, again, given you an easy way to lie to your children to get them to bed early on New Year’s Eve with their ‘Countdown’ episodes. These short (most are under 2 minutes long) episodes from children’s favourites such as “Puffin Rock”, “Luna Petunia”, “Trollhunters”, “Skylanders Academy” and more. Simply hit play and let them countdown to ‘midnight’ whenever you want them to go to bed. Genius!
See you next year
