The last quarter of the year is about to arrive and Netflix movies are catching up: its catalog is adorned with a collection of new stories. For the occasion, the platform decided to make several of its most anticipated films available to its subscribers. And as if that weren’t enough, bring to the multiscreen several of the most well-known and beloved faces in Hollywood.
If you are looking for new movies or if you just want to navigate more comfortably in the multiple options of the service, we help you to do so. With a combination of familiar genres, premises and faces, Netflix’s movie schedule for September has something for everyone.
We leave you our five recommendations:
After trying his luck in the world of superheroes like “The Huntress” in Birds of Prey (2020) Mary Elizabeth Winstead returns with a strange role. When Kate (Winstead), a violent hit man, discovers she only has 24 hours to live, things can get tricky. More than complicated, violent, twisted and at times surreal.
With Tokyo at night as the setting, Kate must discover who poisoned her as well as avoid being killed on the way. If you are looking for a type of action close to ultraviolence, and a rare sense of the visual, this movie is for you.
Violence within the domestic space is a seemingly inexhaustible subgenre of suspense and terror. Still, there is room for a fresh look that will surprise you with its ability to use familiar claustrophobic resources in a new way. Especially when the Netflix movie makes the decision to recombine spaces, fear, and the complexity of paranoia into one haunting idea.. Where to run if the only place you can do it is your home?
Director Adam Salky deploys a unique conception of the terrifying to tell a tense and disturbing story. And while the action takes place, there is still time to question the nature of reality and fear as the basis for a particular dialogue with violence. Between the two, the film is a combination of several genres that is attractive for its experimental nature.
‘Tales at nightfall’
Witches, horror stories and a delicious central character that will make you smile with tenderness. The Netflix movie is a combination of good plot and creative decisions that give the fantasy a certain decadent air.
This wacky version of Hansel and Gretel has all the elements to make you laugh and chill at the same time. When a witch decides to kidnap a child to listen to horror stories, nothing seems to make much sense. But as the different stories intermingle with each other, it is clear that the film has a lot to offer. The premise may seem crazy. But it remains solid even in its soft moments. Directed by David Yarovesky (Brightburn) and producer Sam Raimi (Evil Dead), Tales by Nightfall is an effervescent tribute to the horror genre.
‘We were songs’
The Netflix movie by Spanish director Juana Macías is a combination of many things. As a revamped version of The Demon wears Prada with some singular moments traced from Amelie, it is difficult to classify a priori. But even so, this love story has no other ambition than to make a basic idea clear: Love is everywhere.
And it is also a celebration of life, difficult as it may be. Corny? A little, no one denies it. But sometimes you need something so delicious and simple that it just makes you smile.
Melissa McCarthy had not returned to drama for some years and she does it in style with a film that moves to tears. After a tragic loss, a middle-aged couple must grieve. And it will do so through the few resources at its fingertips. Far from elaborate or melodramatic dramas, this successful recreation of mourning, mourning and suffering puzzles by its frankness.
But in addition, the Netflix movie gives McCarthy the opportunity to show her talents as an actress to the fullest. Several of the scenes are staggeringly dramatic. There is a heartfelt self-awareness of suffering, beauty, and fear, built up from different little parts. A rare gem in the platform’s catalog.
