All this week’s Netflix Originals (Available from Friday 12th October 2018)

One of the great things about Netflix is their Netflix Original content – be it films or series made by Netflix themselves or exclusive content available only on Netflix after it airs on regular TV. Every week we will give you a round-up of the new Netflix Originals becoming available in the next week. We will aim to post every week on Thursday evening with what will be available over the coming week. Perfect if you’re looking to check out what new Originals are available to watch over your weekend or if you’re planning a week-long Netflix binge watch! This area is exclusively for Netflix Originals, for general Netflix additions and removals or to view the current full catalogue check out your regional New On Netflix website.

Well, here we are back in the month of all things scary so it would only be right to have no less than four horror additions in one week! Check out the summary at the end of the post for the full list of additions and here’s our ‘Top Picks’ for this week… 

Apostle

First up this week we are headed for the year 1905, the year of our Lord. Thomas Richardson (Dan Stevens) sets out on a mission to save his abducted sister, kidnapped by an isolated religious cult demanding a ransom for her return. Richardson arrives on the remote island where the inhabitants, the religious commune begin to realise he is on the path to expose them for what they really are. Disturbing, Gruesome, horror film with deep religious themes.

Errementari: The Blacksmith And The Devil

A brutal blacksmith, a young orphaned girl and a village of Christians not to mention an actual devil! Labelled as ‘Sci-Fi Fantasy’ by Netflix, we think this is pretty scary. If you’re planning on watching this Basque movie in its entirety, let us know your thoughts.

That’s enough horror for this post but if being scared out of your wits is your thing check out the trailers for the other horror additions this week… The Haunting of Hill House and Kuntilinak.

Feminists: What Were They Thinking?

A candid look at the feminist movement of the 1970’s through a collection of photographs taken at the time. The documentary addresses the issues of reversing the connotations behind the term feminism in order to push the movement forward whilst acknowledging its birth as a fundamental part of history. In interviews with Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Judy Chicago and, Laurie Anderson, the documentary explores topics of past, present and future society and how they were shaped by the spark of the feminist awakening.

Remastered: Who Shot The Sherriff

In this first of an eight-part documentary series examining key events in the lives of musical icons, the assasination attempt on the life of Bob Marley, is the focus. In a time when rival political parties were using underhand tactics to recruit supporters and violence was breeding, an attempt to shoot dead Bob Marley took place. This documentary looks at those in power at the time and why a key public figure promoting peace would be a threat to their establishment. The remainder of the series will include episodes focussing on Johnny Cash, Jam Master Jay and, Sam Cooke.

The Kindergarten Teacher

Maggie Gyllenhaal stars as Lisa Spinelli an elementary school kindergarten teacher who has become complacent in her role. When one of her pupils displays signs of literary talent her enthusiasm drives her to go against the expectations of someone in her position. Ignoring the wishes of his own parents even, Lisa sets off a chain of events in a bid to fight for what she believes in and poses the question ‘how far will she go?’ in promoting her young protege to a world that, in her opinion, does not appreciate such literary talent.
