Netflix gains several more TV series, Originals, and movies this week. Although the number of new things to watch isn’t as high as the past two weeks, there are quite a few quality titles in the mix–and if nothing is to your liking, October and its additions are on the horizon.
You can certainly tell that it’s almost October, as we’re beginning to see more horror and thrillers with every subsequent week. The Witch is already out on Netflix, the 2015 supernatural horror film about a 17th century Puritan family who accidentally moves their home next to a forest that’s inhabited by witches. Split‘s Anya Taylor-Joy stars in The Witch as the eldest daughter in the family, Thomasin, who’s transition into womanhood is scarred by the terrors her family must face.
On September 18, another spooky delight, American Horror Story: Cult arrives on Netflix. Cult is the seventh season of American Horror Story, and it dives straight into the political divide that erupted in the United States after the 2016 presidential election. The series stars Ocean’s 8‘s Sarah Paulson, X-Men: Days of Future Past‘s Evan Peters, 30 Rock‘s Cheyenne Jackson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s Billie Lourd, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World‘s Alison Phil. Even if it’s not scary, it’s worth noting that Scott Pilgrim was also added to Netflix.
It’s also a very good week if you love animation. On September 21, both Dragon Pilot: Hisone and Masotan and Hilda come to Netflix. Dragon Pilot is an adorably humorous anime that follows the story of a young woman who’s chosen to join a secret air force team where pilots train to fly dragons that are disguised as fighter jets. Hilda is an animated series based on the famous Luke Pearson comic of the same name, that’s about a small 20th century Scandinavian girl who balances her ordinary responsibilities at home and school with her desire to adventure with the trolls, giants, elves, and spirits that are her friends.
