What to Watch on Netflix Tonight

From spooky scandals and serious thrillers, to eye-opening docs… Everything we’re tuning into this October on Netflix

The Watcher

Ryan Murphy is back – time for a new dramatic take on a true story! The Watcher is based on the true story of the infamous “Watcher” story in New Jersey – of the house that was apparently spied on by a spooky watcher, who left disturbing notes for the residents.

In the new series, Dean (played by Bobby Cannavale) and Nora Brannock (played by Naomi Watts) just purchased their dream home in the idyllic suburb of Westfield, New Jersey, but after putting all of their savings into closing the deal they soon realise the neighbourhood is less than welcoming. There’s a kooky older woman named Pearl (Mia Farrow) and her brother Jasper (Terry Kinney), who sneaks into the Brannock’s house and hides in their dumbwaiter.

There’s Karen (Jennifer Coolidge), the realtor and an old acquaintance of Nora’s, who makes them feel like they don’t really belong, and nosy neighbours Mitch (Richard Kind) and Mo (Margo Martindale), who don’t seem to understand property lines. Their icy welcome quickly turns into a full-blown living hell when ominous letters from someone calling themself “The Watcher” start arriving, terrorising the Brannocks to their breaking point as the neighbourhood’s sinister secrets come spilling out.

For a little more theatre and a little less fact, Blonde takes an unconventional trip away from recorded history to imaginative story-telling, about one of the most closely-recorded and investigated celebrity lives ever. The film, while recreating iconic moments from Marilyn Monroe’s life and career – including her show-stopping performance of “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” in Howard Hawks’s 1953 musical Gentlemen Prefer Blondes – takes dramatic license with her life, featuring characters who are based on historical figures as well as amalgams of people she might have known.

Luckiest Girl Alive

Starring Mila Kunis and Connie Britton, Luckiest Girl Alive centres on Ani FaNelli, a sharp-tongued New Yorker who appears to have it all: a sought-after position at a glossy magazine, a killer wardrobe, and a dream Nantucket wedding on the horizon. But when the director of a crime documentary invites her to tell her side of the shocking incident that took place when she was a teenager at the prestigious Brentley School, Ani is forced to confront a dark truth that threatens to unravel her meticulously crafted life.

We can’t wait to see That 70s Show and Family Guy’s Mila in something again, even if it sounds this serious.
