The nights are drawing in, there are curfews to adhere to and, quite frankly, there’s not much appealing about being outdoors right now. So why not snuggle on the sofa for a Netflix binge-fest?
It’s October, so, of course Netflix has rolled out some Halloween classics, including family friendly The Addams Family. To mark Black History Month, there’s critically acclaimed Selma as well as Generation Revolution.
Plus, as it’s October, it’s obviously time to start breaking into the Christmas films (is it really? No, but some people can’t get enough of the festive season), so why not give Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch a go?
