As the month draws to a close, a relatively mixed bag of new movies, TV series, and documentaries dropped on Netflix throughout the past 7 days in the United Kingdom. Here’s a complete roundup of what’s new on Netflix UK for the week ending October 30th.

On Sunday, we’ll see a huge array of new movies coming to Netflix UK as part of the monthly first of the month drop. We’ve got more of what’s coming to Netflix UK in November right here.

Let’s now take a look at some of the new release highlights for the week.


Netflix Original Highlights

Blood of Zeus (Season 1)

Genre: Animation, Action
Cast: Claudia Christian, Jason O’Mara, Derek Phillips, Elias Toufexis

Netflix has been crushing the animated anime space recently and Blood of Zeus continues that hot streak with a memorable first season.

Here’s what you can expect from the series:

“A commoner living in ancient Greece, Heron discovers his true heritage as a son of Zeus, and his purpose: to save the world from a demonic army.”


Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine (2020)

Genre: Comedy
Director: Natasha Lyonne
Cast: Sarah Cooper

With the US election next week, Netflix has just dropped its comedy special from a comedian that has thrived in the Trump era, specifically in the last couple of years.

Sarah Cooper has taken the world by storm with her TikToks and now arrives on Netflix with a 49 minute special with a huge array of guests.


Regional Licensed Titles Highlights

Calm with Horses (2020)

Director: Nick Rowland
Cast: Cosmo Jarvis, Barry Keoghan, Niamh Algar, Ned Dennehy, Kiljan Tyr Moroney, David Wilmot
Runtime: 100 mins

This movie has been a critics favorite with it currently carrying an impressive 94% on Rotten Tomatoes.

The British gangster movie is a slow burn and tells the story of an enforcer within a family business that is pushed to the limits of what he’s willing to do.


The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018)

Director: Diederik van Rooijen
Cast: Shay Mitchell, Grey Damon, Kirby Johnson, Nick Thune, Louis Herthum, Stana Katic
Runtime: 85 minutes

We’d be remiss to not feature a horror movie with Halloween festivities occurring over the weekend. This Sony Picture Feature from 2 years ago saw plenty of mixed reviews but that often goes with the territory.

Here’s what you can expect:

“When a former cop lands a job at a morgue, her graveyard shift takes a terrifying turn with the delivery of a young girl’s haunted corpse.”
