5 Must-Watch Movies & TV Shows Coming To Netflix This Month



Has anybody watched the Amanda Knox documentary yet? It came out only yesterday and I’ve already sat through the whole thing. Fans of Making a Murderer and West of Memphis will love it. I did. So interesting, scary, unsettling and I have so many questions about the whole thing.

While I was browsing yesterday, I realized Netflix has a lot of good stuff at the moment. I even watched Insidious afterward (scary but good!), and started wondering what other goodies I can find this month. So here are a few things you need to catch this month on Netflix.

Breakfast At Tiffany’s (Oct 1)

Finally, Breakfast At Tiffany’s is available on Netflix, so we can get our Audrey Hepburn fix whenever we need it. Never seen it? It’s about Holly Golightly, living a super extravagant life in New York, when Paul Varjak moves into her building he starts to see her as she is, and who she was, and her complicated life takes them both on a journey. It’s a brilliant movie!

American Horror Story: Hotel (October 4)


The latest season might be showing now, but if you missed the last gory season starring Lady Gaga, you can binge watch it on Netflix in a few days. If you know AHS you know it’s scary, gory and gross, if not…be warned.

Black Mirror Season 3 (October 21)


Charlie Brooker is back with a third season of Black Mirror. If you haven’t yet watched the other seasons, you should. This is a mind-boggling, unsettling show that gives you a glimpse into the world we live in.


Big Eyes (October 25)


Did you miss this one when it was in the cinema? This Tim Burton flick is based on the life of  real painter whose husband took credit for her work. It’s emotive, I wanted to catch it in the cinema but I’ll definitely give it a watch on Netflix this month.

The Fall Season 3 (October 29)



I haven’t caught any of The Fall yet, but I’ve seen Gillian Anderson doing the rounds on TV sofas and I’ve decided I want to binge it . . . like yesterday. Fast paced, thrilling, terrifying. This is a classic ‘detective chase’ TV show. Watch it if you love crime shows!

A mixed bag of unsettling and heart-warming this month, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is also available too, as well as a whole host of other TV shows and documentaries. These are our favorites so far. Most of them have a distinct October theme, perfect for creepy nights in.

    Breakfast at Tiffany’s is such a fabulous film. I’m counting down the days until Gilmore Girls is back. I’m watching Luke Cage right now, but its a really slow starter.

      Ah, why would they take away Gilmore Girls?! The US version still has it, thankfully. I hope they never remove it because it’s such a comfort show. :)

    Breakfast at Tiffany’s has been on and off Netflix (At least, the USA Netflix) for the past few years. I wish they’d just keep it on there permanently! I never liked the film much at first but every time I watch it, I love it a little bit more. :)
