September on Netflix will continue the trend of adding to decision fatigue. The streamer once again offers plenty of options with little guidance on where to start. For subscribers, that’s a good thing, and the wet month of September can be spent browsing the Netflix library.
For fans of cooking contests, there’s a fan-favorite series returning to TV screens. There are even several adjoining horror movies that will get eager viewers ready for the Halloween season.
Morbius – TBD
For those who missed both Morbiustheatrical tours, good news! The critical film arrives on Netflix in September. While an exact release date is yet to be determined, vampire-loving comic book fans will have something to look forward to this month.
The film tells the story of Michael Morbius (Jared Leto), who, together with his surrogate brother Milo (Matt Smith), manages to cure a rare blood disease. A side effect however: they turn into vampires.
8 Britain’s Great Baking Fair – TBD
The Great British Bake Offa.k.a The great British pastry fair (in the US), returns for another round of high octane cake and cookie making. This 13th season overall will bring more than usual: uncomfortable laughs, merciless competition, and the sweet aroma of freshly baked goods.
While fans of the series can’t expect the competition to take a drastically new direction, it’s probably fine with them. The series is one of the more laid back comfort shows, perfect for a night at home.
seven Collateral – 9/1
2004 Michael Mann movie, Collateral, is one of the best works of the director. It’s a lean, mean portrait of a hitman, who hires a taxi driver to show him around Los Angeles on a night-time kill spree. Tom Cruise perfectly plays Vincent, the killer in question, with a cold, calculated quality that makes other cinematic hitmen seem weak.
The taxi driver, Max (Jaimie Foxx) is also great, as he’s just trying to survive the evening and find a way out of the script alive. While there are plots and conveniences that don’t entirely work, the film as a whole is a high-end thriller worthy of all the accolades it’s received over the years.
6 Resident Evil Collection – 9/1
It makes sense that Netflix is trying to corner the market on resident Evil universe. Even though the streaming service has decided not to renew its series for a second season, the first will remain in its archives until the cows come home.
Thus, Netflix reinforces the attraction by adding three resident Evil Films from the Milla Jovovich era: resident Evil (2002), Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004), and Resident Evil: Retribution (2012). While there are a handful of other movies left out of this latest collection, it’s still worth delving into the ridiculously absurd world of big-budget zombie movies.
5 Devil in Ohio – 9/2
Based on the book of the same name by Daria Polatin, Devil in Ohio is a new Netflix Original series. It stars Emily Deschanel (Zooey’s sister and star of Bones). The 8-episode series follows a psychiatrist (Deschanel) whose latest client, a young woman who escaped from a cult, creates trouble.
The series will delve into the countless threads of how the young woman affects every member of the psychiatrist’s family, while also investigating the trauma she suffered at the hands of the cult.
4 Cobra Kai (Season 5) – 9/9
Who would have guessed that a spin-off of The Karate Kid franchise become such a successful and beloved series? Nobody, who is it. However, here we are, and Cobra Kai is set to begin its fifth season, now on Netflix, following its first two-season run on YouTube.
All 10 episodes will be released on September 10, making this the perfect time to catch up on the series from the start or continue where viewers last left off. There’s no better show on a dojo that trains children in the art of hand-to-hand combat.
3 Revenge – 09/16
Heavily based on Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece (adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s novel of the same name) Strangers on a train, Revenge stars Camilla Mendes and Maya Hawke. This updated version takes the story to high school, where two students, Drea and Eleanor (Mendes and Hawke, respectively) are upset.
When a salacious video featuring Drea makes the rounds and a rumor threatens Eleanor’s reputation, the two decide to take on each other’s bullies in a transactional revenge.
2 The Munsters – 09/27
Rob Zombie is, in recent years, best known for his two Halloween reboot movies, both of which punish viewers with extreme acts of violence. Before that, he did House of 1,000 Corpsesand its sequel, The devil’s rejections – cruel horror films with complete disregard for human life. Long before all of that, however, he was known for his music, performing both Rob Zombie and, before that, White Zombie.
Well, who could imagine the horror showman would do anything for kids? The Munsterswhich updates the classic TV series, will attract new audiences and update the story for the modern era.
1 Blond – 9/28
For better or worse, much of the hype surrounding Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) Blond was regarding his alleged NC-17 rating. However, the jury is still out on what that rating entails.
The film, based on the book of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates, is a fictionalized look at the life of Marilyn Monroe (Ana de Armas) as she faces the trials and tribulations to become the star everyone takes . Apparently, his personal descent into drug addiction will also be covered.
