What’s New To Netflix This Week: Movies, TV, And Originals (US)

Every month, Netflix releases an enormous amount of content to its subscribers, and it can be a daunting task to figure out what to watch every week. It’s the end of October now, and the streaming giant has plenty of original movies and series for you to check out.

On Tuesday, October 23, Adam Sandler returns to his roots with 100% Fresh. The title obviously takes aims at his ratings from Rotten Tomatoes, as critics haven’t been incredibly kind to his film work, but the special itself veers away from addressing that, for the most part. 100% Fresh mixes jokes and songs that will remind fans of his classic 1996 HBO special What The Hell Happened To Me?

Netflix is doubling-down on horror series on Friday, October 26 with the second season of Castlevania. In our review of Castlevania, GameSpot’s Mike Rougeau said “With eight episodes instead of just four, there was hope that Castlevania Season 2 would feel like more of a complete thing. Instead, it feels more like Season 1 was the first act, and this is simply a continuation, and the extra room has been spent developing new characters while the old ones tread water.”

Also coming Friday is Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, a darker take on the character than fans may be accustomed to. In our review, Chris Hayner said, “It’s hard to find something to dislike about Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. There’s a moment or two that might seem like the show is trying too hard to channel the teen angst and melodrama of Riverdale, but given they come from the same creative force, that’s not surprising. And if you’re going into it expecting incredibly cinematic visuals, you might be disappointed, as the inspiration for the show’s looks is clearly older horror films.”
