Narrow down the list with these five good Netflix movies this weekend

Oct. 1 certainly brought plenty of great Netflix movies to watch. It also brought the usual overwhelming feeling of trying to get through the list.

You need help narrowing down the list, finding the best movies to watch. That’s what we’re here for, bringing a list of top movies to check out. Whether you want horror-comedy, a rom-com, or something truly scary, there is something available this weekend to watch.

Here are five good Netflix movies to watch between Oct. 3 and 4.

Vampires vs. The Bronx

We’ll start with the horror-comedy that dropped on Netflix just yesterday. Vampires vs. The Bronx is exactly what it sounds like. A group of teens from The Bronx take on vampires, who happen to be in real estate.

There are plenty of laughs along the way, especially with the stereotypical vampires that can seem a little corny at times. That’s the whole point of the movie.

The Binding

Some of the best horror movies have come from Europe. The Binding is the latest of the Netflix movies you should watch. It’s an Italian movie that brings plenty of superstition, curses, and more. Yes, there are jump scares, but it will also make you think as you follow the characters through the story.

The use of superstition can often feel silly. That’s not the case in The Binding, where it adds more creepiness. It’s worth watching with the subtitles instead of the dubbing.

The Boys in the Band

Next up is the Netflix original movie from Sept. 30. The Boys in the Band stars Jim Parsons, Matt Bomer, and Charlie Carver among some other excellent stars. Set in 1968, an uninvited visitor interrupts a gathering of gay men.

This is one of those movies that breaks down the stereotypes. It makes you think about sexuality in a way you’ve possibly never considered it, especially in a 1960s setting.

Black ’47

This is an underrated movie that you could miss from the huge drop that happened on Oct. 1. Black ’47 offers a look at the world in 1847, in a time of starvation, disease, and fear. When an Irish mercenary learns of the death of his family, he abandons the British Army to seek revenge.

There is a lot of heartbreak in the tale. It doesn’t shy away from the realities of the Great Famine. And it’s something you should watch this weekend.

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

Finally, it’s time for a cheesy rom-com. Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner star in this delightful little movie. McConaughey plays a womanizer who wants to brainwash his brother against marriage. When the ghosts of his ex-girlfriends visit him, he starts to learn the error of his ways.

It’s a standard womanized-turned-good movie. A little unbelievable at times, but a fun rom-com for the weekend.
