Everything streaming on Netflix, Stan, BINGE, Amazon Prime Video and Disney+ that’s worth your time from August 23-29.

NETFLIX

The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf (23rd)

The Witcher is back… kinda. As fans eagerly await Netty’s second season of The Witcher, this animated feature should help pass the time showcasing the backstory of Geralt’s friend and mentor Vesemir. Expect loads of action, fantasy monsters and ultra violence but sadly no Henry Cavill.

In The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf we get less Henry Cavill, but the same amount of gore and monsters as the regular Witcher. Picture: Netflix

UNTOLD: Caitlyn Jenner (24th)

Caitlyn Jenner’s journey has been a fascinating and public one. From Olympic glory to her transition and struggle with identity, this documentary will reveal much about this intriguing, and controversial, figure.

Clickbait (25th)

Co-created by Aussie Tony Ayres, Clickbait offers a tense and timely thriller experience that will have you on the edge of your seat. There are many good reasons to watch Clickbait, number seven will surprise you...

Nick Brewer (Adrian Grenier) has just found out Clickbait can be worse than annoying... it can be deadly. Picture: Netflix

Bob Ross: Happy Accidents, Betrayal and Greed (25th)

Everyone’s favourite meme, Bob Ross, finally gets a documentary. Well, sorta. See, the Bob Ross bits are pretty chill, but after the man’s death in 1995, the fight over his identity was anything but a happy accident. Eye-opening stuff.

Cats (29th)

Lockdown continues for much of Australia so perhaps it’s time to stare balefully into the stygian eye of the abyss and confront terror in its rawest form. 2019’s most inexplicable film is finally here to make you ask “why?” and “what were they thinking?” and then, after a long pause, “WHY?” again. See how long you can last.

STAN

PICK OF THE WEEK

Chapelwaite S1 Premiere (23rd)

The latest telly adaptation of a Stephen King story looks like an absolute cracker. Starring Adrien Brody, the creepy yarn deals with tragic death, grief and a supernatural twist that will have even the hardiest horror fan checking behind the couch for stroppy spooks.

Captain Charles Boone (Adrien Brody) is about to have himself a very spooky day. Picture: Stan

Tucker & Dale Vs Evil (27th)

Okay, seriously, if you haven’t seen this film, stop reading and go watch it now. This delightful, clever horror comedy - starring Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine - is a nonstop hoot and chockers with great surprises and twists. Hook in now, thank us later.

Purple Rain (29th)

Jeez, we miss Prince. There’s been a funky hole in our hearts since 2016, and sometimes it’s nice to revisit some of his work. In this case the 1985 film Purple Rain. Decent film, amazing soundtrack and a great portal into that decade of dizzy excess: the 1980s.

BINGE

The Walking Dead S11 (25th)

It’s the beginning of the end, as The Walking Dead lurches into its final season. Will Maggie (Lauren Cohan) finally kill Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan)? Will Daryl (Norman Reedus) speak a complete, coherent sentence? And will Rick (Andrew Lincoln) come back before the movies? The final twenty four episodes of TWD begin here!

Supergirl S6B (25th)

The second half of the final season of Supergirl is here and hopefully will go out with a bang. Melissa Benoist has been so great as Kara/Supergirl, and fans will be able to bid a bittersweet farewell to someone who was so much more than Superman’s cousin.

Britannia S3 (25th)

Season 3 of this wild mix of history and fantasy is here. Set in AD 43, this is the tale of the Romans invading Britain. Wonder how that all worked out. Those of you in the mood for something Game of Thrones and Rome adjacent will be stoked.

Wrong Turn (26th)

The divisive 2021 reboot of the long-running, albeit not exactly beloved, series decides to give the entire franchise a total reset and changes the action from backwood shenanigans to culty capers. May not suit everyone’s taste, but horror fans will likely find something to love.

Amazon Prime Video

All the Money in the World (24th)

Ridley Scott’s stylish thriller based on the jaw-dropping true story is a star-studded affair and sumptuously directed to boot. Well worth a gander for those in the mood for a quality night in at the “movies” (aka your couch).

Rosehaven (26th)

Rosehaven is the unlikely little Australian hit, full of gentle comedy and well observed drama. Why not kick back and discover it for yourself?

Kevin Can F*** Himself (26th)

Stunning, dark and hilarious black comedy starring Annie Murphy (Alexis from Schitt’s Creek!) as a sitcom wife who has finally had enough of her oafish husband’s nonsense. This is striking, original stuff anchored by a superb main performance.

Allison (Annie Murphy) is finding out that being a sitcom wife is no laughing matter in Kevin Can F*** Himself. Picture: Amazon Prime Video

DISNEY+

The Empty Man (25th)

Stylish and critically acclaimed horror flick, The Empty Man isn’t quite what you expect, but sometimes that can be a good thing. This is a must watch for adventurous horror fans willing to take a chance on something a little different.

Vacation Friends (27th)

Big star-studded comedy promises plenty of laughs as Marcus (Lil Rel Howery) and Emily (Yvonne Orji) have their wedding crashed by vacation buddies Ron (John Cena) and Kyla (Meredith Hagner). This looks like the best kind of stupid.

Disney Princess Remixed: An Ultimate Princess Celebration (27th)

Disney is paying tribute to its roster of royal ladies with this musical special narrated by social media star Txunamy Ortiz. Expect plenty of songs, dance and a bunch of other stuff that will thrill eight-year-olds to bits.
