Rob Zombie’s take on The Munsters and Andrew Dominik’s take on Marilyn Monroe hit Netflix, The Sanderson Sisters return on Disney+ and more this week

NOW STREAMING:

‘The Munsters’ (Netflix)

Rob Zombie’s feature film adaptation of the classic 60s sitcom The Munsters has finally arrived! It’s kitschy fun to the extreme – a colorful and playful throwback that’s genuinely funny and endlessly impressive with its Halloweentown style aesthetic and designs. It’s a tribute to the sitcom that clearly comes from the heart, with Zombie being a self-confessed lifelong fan of the series that has been wanting to make this particular movie for decades.

‘Blonde’ (Netflix)

Discover a life both known and unknown in this boldly imaginative film from writer and director Andrew Dominik that explores the complicated life of Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe. Based on the novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates, Ana de Armas delivers a stunning performance as the tragic American superstar in what is far more psychological horror than biopic.

‘Hocus Pocus 2’ (Disney+)

It’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century Sanderson sisters, and they are looking for revenge. Now it is up to three high-school students to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on All Hallow’s Eve. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy reunite for the live-action, long awaited sequel to the perennial Halloween classic, which brings back the delightfully wicked Sanderson sisters for more comedic mayhem.

‘Entergalactic’ (Netflix)

Ambitious artist Jabari attempts to balance success and love when he moves into his dream Manhattan apartment and falls for his next-door neighbor.

‘My Best Friend’s Exorcism’ (Amazon Prime Video)

In 1988 best friends Abby and Gretchen navigate boys, pop culture and a paranormal force clinging to Gretchen. With help from a mall exorcist, Abby is determined to compel the demon back to the pits of hell – if it doesn’t kill Gretchen first.

‘Hostages’ (HBO Max)

On November 4, 1979, Iranian student activists stormed the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking over 60 Americans hostage. What was planned as a 48-hour sit-in to protest American imperialism, ballooned into an international crisis and 24/7 media event that would last 444 days. With never-before-seen archival footage and revelatory new interviews with the American hostages and Iranian hostage-takers alike, the series is a gripping chronicle of one of the most dramatic international deadlocks in American history, a deep dive into the geo-political history that led to the crisis, and an exploration of the political fallout that reverberates today.

‘Bodies Bodies Bodies’ (VOD)

A24’s Bodies Bodies Bodies carries a sobering message but brilliantly delivers it in a clever and wickedly fun way, in the form of a slasher whodunnit filled with style and personality.
