Are you looking for new releases in Film or Television to watch this weekend of September 30th!? Well, THS has you covered in our weekly series! So, make sure to come back each week as we compile all of our recommendations for you to check out on your days off.
However, I wanted to break down this list and make it a little more personal. Kind of like when you walk into a book store and see the wall of employee recommendations. So, I’ll be breaking down this list as to what we at THS are watching, not necessarily every single thing releasing.
One of the shows I’ve been most excited for this year, Interview with the Vampire, finally premieres this weekend! I’m also getting spooky with Rob Zombie’s The Munsters on Netflix, as well as hitting the theater to catch Billy Eichner’s rom-com Bros.
This is a great weekend for independent films, that you can stream from the comfort of your own home. IFC Films’ has their visually stunning, original sci-fi “Vesper“, Saban Films is releasing the new supernatural genre-bender “Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon” and there is also A24’s powerful family drama “God’s Creatures“. All three of these are certainly worth your time this weekend!
I’ve got a busy watching weekend ahead of me. First, heading to the theaters to check out Smile and Bros – two very different vibes. Then, I can’t watch to start watching the new season of The Might Ducks: Game Changers – Season 2 on Disney+. Finally, my Sunday will be fully dedicated to the new adaptation of Interview with the Vampire on AMC+!
