The List of New Movies Coming to Netflix This Week: October 16-22, 2023
Let's get into the Halloween spirit.
In a bid to keep people renewing their subscriptions and coming back for more, Netflix keeps adding new titles to its huge library every week. Most of these additions are Netflix originals, and some may be exactly the sort of content you've been looking for.
If you're in the mood for something new but aren't ready to binge-watch a long series, we've compiled for you a list of exciting movies coming to Netflix over the next few days.
First, the biggest titles:
Horror Shorts (Friday)
The Halloween season is upon us, and Netflix is making every effort to make sure we're in the right mood for it. It's already added some classic horror and thriller flicks to its catalog, saving others until closer to Halloween. This week is going to see the streaming giant drop two new horror shorts, Disco Inferno and Flashback.
The 18-minute Disco Inferno follows a young couple whose dancing awakens a dark force that goes after their unborn child. The 16-minute Flashback follows a woman who gets attacked by some home intruders, which causes her to get stuck in some painful memories.
Old Dads (Friday)
If horror isn't your thing, a comedy about three old-school friends dealing with the millennial world to become better dads to their kids might do the trick. The film is written, directed, and stars Bill Burr, who previously worked with Netflix to create a series of stand-up specials and the fan-favorite adult animated sitcom F Is For Family.
No Hard Feelings (Sunday)
This week is Jennifer Lawrence Week on Netflix. After dropping 2012's classic Silver Linings Playbook, which earned Laurence a Best Actress Oscar, on Tuesday, the streaming giant will now be releasing this year's romantic comedy No Hard Feelings on Sunday.
The unexpectedly heartwarming film surprises viewers with the story of a thirty-something down-on-her-luck female Uber driver who has her car repossessed because of unpaid loans and, out of desperation, agrees to be a girlfriend-for-hire for a 19-year-old rich kid, who happens to be 'the son and the heir of a shyness that is criminally vulgar.' While his parents make the arrangements, their son knows nothing about it. Where will the lie take the story and Lawrence's character?
If you're ready for more, here's a full list of all the movies coming to Netflix this week.
