Language: English
Genre: Horror, Mystery, Sci-Fi
Director: Lorcan Finnegan
Cast: Imogen Poots, Danielle Ryan, Molly McCann

One of the two major licensed movies to hit Netflix so far this week is an underappreciated horror gem starring Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots.

The movie follows two prospective house buyers guided into what turns out to be a nightmare of living in a British estate that goes on forever. They’re confronted with plenty of other twists along the way too.

This is one of our eight top movie picks for July 2023.

Quarterback (Season 1)

Number of episodes: 8
Rating: TV-MA
Language: English
Genre: Documentary, Sport
Cast: Patrick Mahomes, Marcus Mariota, Kirk Cousins

Adding to Netflix’s growing library of sports documentaries is the first collab between Netflix and the National Football League.

The new series will take you inside the huddle, so to speak, following the professional and personal lives of Patrick Mahomes, Kirk Cousins, and Marcus Mariota through the 2022-23 NFL season.

This is perhaps one of the most significant Netflix Games releases to date in that it’s the first real title to come from one of Netflix’s internal studios.

Serving as a sequel to the critically acclaimed first game and described as a mind-bending follow-up, here’s what you can expect from the story:

“In the small coastal town of Camena, unnaturally occurring electromagnetic waves are suddenly causing interference with electrical and radio equipment. Reluctantly, Riley Poverly, an environmental researcher, returns to her hometown to investigate the mystery, but what she finds is more than she bargained for.”

You’ve got several different options of playing the new Night School Studio entry. You can source it on your favorite game consoles like PlayStation, Switch, or PC, or you can access the mobile version for free with your Netflix subscription on iOS or Android.
