Netflix Tips for October
Written by Kája
Here comes autumn - the best season for a Netflix marathon! To spend the whole day in bed under a blanket and watch new shows or movies. With October comes Halloween too. October, the spooky month. Now is the best time of the year to watch some creepy, mysterious TV series. So make yourself a cup of hot chocolate or tea and discover some good Netflix tips with me.
The Chestnut Man
This recently-released Danish TV series is for crime-show lovers. A young woman was found dead in a playground. She was missing a hand and above her was hanging a little man made of twigs and chestnuts. The investigators have to reopen an old case to solve this new one. There will be more deaths before the case is closed. This series never gets boring since it has only 6 episodes. It has a great atmosphere with some ‘autumn elements’ - in particular a gloomy autumnal mood. If you are interested in solving a murder with a seasonal vibe, this series is made for you.
No One Gets Out Alive
No One Gets Out Alive was released this September. This mysterious horror movie is based on a novel published in 2014. This film is about the main character Amber, an illegal immigrant who stayed in Mexico to take care of her sick mother. After her death she decides to move to Cleveland to live the American dream. She was short on money so she couldn't afford to live anywhere other than in a sketchy rundown boarding house. She immediately starts to see horrific visions and hear screams for help. This movie has ghosts and supernatural elements. If you are looking for something simple but a little scary to watch, I definitely recommend this movie for you.
For Squid Game fans
I have one more tip for fans of Squid Game - the phenomenal Korean TV series which has become one of the most-watched series around the whole world. If you are looking for something similar, I recommend you to watch Alice in Borderland.
Alice in Borderland is a Japanese TV show about Arisu Ryouhei, who meets up with his friends in the centre of Tokyo. Suddenly the lights go out. Signs lead them to an empty building where they are forced to play a deadly game.
