Everything streaming on Netflix, Stan, BINGE, Amazon Prime Video and DISNEY+ that’s worth your time from October 25-31.

NETFLIX

Frayed (25th)

Well-regarded comedy drama series about a wealthy woman living in London who is forced to return to her hometown in Newcastle, Australia. Quality storytelling and well acted to boot. Plus, Newy represent!

The Cry (25th)

Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who) stars in this heartbreaking series about the disappearance of a small child and the devastation it causes both individuals and a community. Impeccably made Aussie gear that will no doubt leave you crying under the coffee table.

Sex: Unzipped (26th)

You know what frank discussions of sex need more of? Puppets! And that’s exactly what you get in this sex-positive special hosted by rapper Saweetie, featuring many special guests. And plenty of informative, toey puppets.

Hypnotic on netflix
Yeah, see if this is your reaction to seeing a hypnotherapist? You should probs stop, hey. Hypnotic promises plenty of suspense on Netflix. Picture: Netflix

Hypnotic (27th)

Stylish thriller about a young woman who starts to see a hypnotherapist, but begins to realise the practitioner may be a lot dodgier than expected. Slick and engaging game of cat and mouse, perfect for thriller fans.

Army of Thieves (29th)

It’s the prequel to Army of the Dead for people who thought that movie had too many zombies and stylish direction from Zack Snyder. Follow the story of Ludwig Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer) who also directed. Could be a hoot?

Don't worry about Dieter (Matthias Schweighofer), when you're with him you're in SAFE hands. Eh? Eh? Picture: NETFLIX

The Gentlemen (30th)

Guy Ritchie’s riotous comedy/crime caper comes with language that would make your nan blush and a star-studded cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Colin Farrell and Michelle Dockery. Great fun.

STAN

The Loved Ones (27th)

The criminally underrated Aussie horror flick, starring Robin McLeavy and Xavier Samuel, is now on Stan for your watching pleasure, so why not get into the Halloween spirit and have a squiz?

Love Life S2 (28th)

Less Anna Kendrick this time around (which is sad) but more William Jackson Harper aka Chidi from The Good Place (which is awesome!) If the first season was anything to go by, this should be amusing, well-observed and rather sweet.

"So, are you married to the hat?" More adventures in romance, this time with William Jackson Harper in the lead role in Love Life S2. Picture: Stan

Walker S2 (29th)

So, you know that Walker, Texas Ranger reboot starring Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki? Well, apparently it’s gone and got a second season, despite lukewarm critical reaction. If that sounds like your jam, you should probably get right on it.

It (31st)

One of the better adaptations of Stephen King’s work, It has a really good whack at tackling half of the Maine Man’s second longest book (number one being the unexpurgated The Stand). Features a shapeshifting sewer clown who feeds on curious kids. What more could you want?

BINGE

PICK OF THE WEEK

Curb Your Enthusiasm S11 (25th)

Larry David, everyone’s favourite amiable misanthrope, is back for yet another season of social awkwardness and taboo breaking. Who will he offend this season? We can’t even imagine, but you better believe we’ll be watching along, laughing like a fat spider.

The return of Curb Your Enthusiasm is always good news. Pretty, pretty, pretty good news. Picture: BINGE

Insecure S5 (25th)

The fifth season of the acclaimed and beloved series is here, to offer more drama faced by two besties who try above all to remain loyal to one another. Fans will be delighted to get back on the Issa and Molly train.

Aquaman (29th)

Can you believe Aquaman is the most successful DC movie of all time? Take that, Batman, ya grumpy goth! Anyway, if you like the sound of a frequently shirtless Jason Momoa and Aussie legend James Wan’s slick direction, you’re in for a treat!

Amazon Prime Video

The Green Knight (28th)

Visually sumptuous, thematically dense and an absolute treat for the eyes, The Green Knight is a dreamlike fantasy yarn that’s not for everyone, but a joy for those who can dig it. Starring Dev Patel, there’s nothing quite like this flick.

Unheard (29th)

Unheard is a six part documentary series focusing on amplifying the voices of those who are marginalised or racially discriminated against. This is a fascinating project and looks to be well worth your time, particularly for those with an interest in social issues.

DISNEY+

Woman Walks Ahead (29th)

A headstrong New York artist puts herself in real danger to get a portrait of Sitting Bull. Starring Jessica Chastain, Michael Greyeyes and Sam Rockwell, this is a fascinating true story and a great drama to boot.
