Ten October Netflix Movies
Deep Blue Sea (1999)
A delightful late 90’s thriller featuring CGI and animatronic sharks, LL Cool J playing a cook and Samuel L. Jackson playing Samuel L. Jackson. Basically these sharks get smart and start attacking people and it’s pretty great.
One of my top five black comedies. Heathers is a movie about high school cliques and murder, full of ridiculous quips you’ll want to quote for days to come. Starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater.
The Craft (1996)
If you were an angsty teen girl in the mid 90’s, I don’t need to tell you anything about this movie. If you weren’t, it’s about a new girl in school who is a real witch but doesn’t know and joins in a coven of probably not really real witches who want to get revenge on everyone in school who has been shitty to them. The girls get real power and chaos ensues.
Freaky short films, each featuring a different holiday. Great if you’re used to binge-watching tv shows and have a short attention span (points to self).
Practical Magic (1998)
Another 90’s teen girl movie. Yes it’s a RomCom, if you couldn’t tell by the poster. Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman are witches, but like low key normal witches in a small town, who accidentally kill a guy, then bring him back to life, then try to kill him again but it doesn’t really work so they have to figure out what to do. Also featuring Stockard Channing (Rizzo in Grease) and a young Evan Rachel Wood!
Requiem for a Dream (2000)
A pretty disturbing film about drug addiction.
The Addams Family (1991)
I honestly remember the second movie, Addams Family Values better than this one, but how can you go wrong with this cast? Anjelica Huston, Christopher Lloyd and a young Christina Ricci.
The Sixth Sense (1999)
“I see dead people.” Yes you do, little Haley Joel Osment. Probably M. Night Shyamalan’s crowning achievement, this movie still spooks me even though I know everything that’s going to happen.
Would You Rather (2012)
Completely ridiculous but totally awesome. Some folks come to a dinner party in hopes of making some money and end up playing a pretty macabre version of Would You Rather.
Young Frankenstein (1974)
This was Jamie’s addition to the list and I haven’t actually seen it. She says it’s the general Frankenstein story but with Gene Wilder and it’s a comedy. I’m in.
