Locked In

Death Island is the latest in a series of animated Resident Evil projects, following Vendetta and Infinite Darkness. Released in July of this year, Death Island finally hits Netflix on November 9.

The Killer

David Fincher, the acclaimed director who brought us titles like Mindhunter and Gone Girl, is BACK with his newest movie The Killer, a neo-noir action thriller starring Michael Fassbender as the titular assassin. Based on the graphic novel series by Alexis “Matz” Nolent and illustrated by Luc Jacamon, The Killer follows an assassin on an international manhunt pitting him against his employers and himself after a contract goes wrong. The Killer premieres on November 10.

More scary movies coming to Netflix in November:

In addition to the big new titles mentioned above, Netflix is also adding a few older films to its catalog on November 1.

  • The Mummy (Nov. 1) – Don’t get too excited, it’s not the iconic ‘90s movie starring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz, but the 2017 remake with Tom Cruise. Sofia Boutella is a highlight here as Ahmanet, but otherwise this film is better off forgotten like the defunct “Dark Universe” it was supposed to launch.
  • Drag Me to Hell (Nov. 1) – This delightfully over the top and campy film from Sam Raimi is a must watch. Alison Lohman and Justin Long star.
  • Black Christmas (Nov. 1) – No, it’s not the 1974 masterpiece, or even the 2006 remake, but the terrible and unnecessary 2019 remake.
