All this week’s Netflix Originals (Available from Friday 20th October 2017)

One of the great things about Netflix are their Netflix Originals – 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 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.

Good evening and welcome to this week’s New On Netflix Uk round-up of all things ‘Netflix Original’ this week. If you follow our blog every week you’ll already be aware that October is our ‘horror month.’ We will be reviewing a horror film weekly all in the name of the scariest month of the year, October. Last week’s review by Tammy was of the film ‘Before I Wake.’ Why not have a read and come back to us when you’re done.

Done? Excellent. Tomorrow Benedict will be reviewing ‘Hush‘ so make sure you check that out too. Another upcoming horror review will be of the Netflix Original by Stephen King ‘1922‘ available to watch on Netflix tomorrow (see below) we’ll be publishing these on our review page. Don’t forget to bookmark the page so you can check out future reviews!

Ready for this weeks releases? We’ve got a couple of films, a couple of documentaries and a nice stand up comedy special…

1922

We are super excited about the release of Netflix Original “1922.” The popularity of Stephen King screen adaptations seems to be as strong as it has ever been, maybe even more so with the cinema release of the new ‘IT’ recently and the Netflix Original’s “The Mist” and  “Gerald’s Game”. Written and directed by Zac Hilditch and produced by Ross M Dinerstein for Campfire production company, ‘1922′ is the story of Wilfred James. Set in 1922 (funnily enough) the Nebraskan farmer narrates the story of how he murdered his wife and the events that unfolded after the fact. The trailer is scary enough so if psychological horror is your thing we think you’ll be in for a treat.

We’ll be watching this on Friday night (20th October) with a bucket of popcorn and a big cushion to hide behind and then reviewing it. If you will be watching it this weekend. Let us know your thoughts and check out our review on Tuesday.

One of Us

To say that leaving the Hasidic community is difficult would be a huge understatement. Film makers Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady attempt to make the world aware in this Original documentary. Following the lives (and escape) of three individuals who were leading lives as Hasidic Jews, the documentary seeks to expose the religious community and their attempt to discredit the outside world in order to keep individuals within their extreme confines. The complexities these individuals face lie not only with the escape but with the integration into a society they know nothing about.

The Day I Met El Chapo: The Kate del Castillo Story

The second of this weeks documentaries is this three-episode docu-series that follows Kate del Castillo. Kate del Castillo, famed Mexican actress, was invited to meet with one of the most notorious drug lords known as “El Chapo” after she wrote him an open letter on social media. This documentary tells her story of events leading up to and after the meeting and how the involvement of others could have caused a very different outcome.

Haters Back Off (Season Two)

Jack Whitehall: At Large

Let’s round off this week’s releases with a nice little stand up comedy special from British comedian Jack Whitehall. Not long after the release of his comedy series ‘Jack Whitehall: Travels with my Father’ Jack’s back on Netflix with his hilarious stand up set ‘Jack Whitehall: At Large’ filmed at the Hammersmith Apollo. Jack is just as funny without his father, talking about potential parenting, travelling, general adult-ing in his very popular posh British way.
