We've talked about must-watch Asian Netflix shows and reimagined Netflix leading lady outfits before mainly because, just like you, we're also obsessed with binge-watching through the streaming platform every time our schedules — or sleeping habits — permit it. Given this, we also know one of the biggest pains of owning a Netflix account: having so many to choose from and not knowing what to watch. So to alleviate our shared suffering of having to endlessly scroll through selections for hours on end, we're giving you a list of movies and TV shows coming to Netflix this April which deserve a spot on your "My List."
Stephen King's Pet Sematary
With the 2019 remake coming to U.S. theatres on 5 April, Netflix has decided to add the 1989 adaptation of Stephen King's thrilling novel to its library on the first day of the month. This is probably for us to know what we're getting into should we decide to see the new one on the big screen.
If you're not aware, the story revolves around Louis Creed, who discovers a burial ground that brings the dead back to life. Soon after a tragedy hits their family, he is forced to decide whether or not he should use the site's powers. It may be months too early to see a movie fit for Halloween, but we're telling you, it's a classic for a reason.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2
Following the success of the first season, the edgier and creepier take on this '90s classic returns for season 2 to give us more bewitching entertainment. Kiernan Shipka comes back as Sabrina Spellman to take on high school drama, black magic, and romance, and we can't wait to see where it's taking us this time. P.S. Are you Team Harvey Kinkle or Team Nick Scratch?
Can't get enough of Brie Larson post-Captain Marvel high? Then you are going to love her as Kit, a whimsical but failed artist who one day received an invitation from a mysterious salesman, selling from a store that promises "whatever you need." Coming in with a mix of drama, comedy, and fantasy, it's a feel-good movie that will also give you your Marvel fix while waiting for Avengers: Endgame. Hit the play button on this one when it lands on the 5th.
Call Me By Your Name
The movie that made everyone fall in love with Timothée Chalamet and made Armie Hammer the internet's newest boyfriend, this 2017 LGBTQ film adapted from the book of the same name is also arriving on Netflix soon. If you didn't catch this on the big screen the first time around, the coming-of-age story talks about 17-year-old Elio (Chalamet) and his story of love, loss, and self-discovery while falling in love with his father's 24-year old student assistant (Hammer). As we wait for the release of its sequel announced January 2018, give this a watch to see why it was worth its Oscar win for Best Adapted Screenplay.
The Perfect Date
Fell in love with Noah Centineo's Peter Kavinsky in TATBILB? Well, it seems like Netflix did, too. Apart from currently working on the sequel of the adaptation of Jenny Han's novel, he also comes back to our screens this April as Riverdale's Camila Mendes's love interest in The Perfect Date. Featuring a guy who signed up to a date-servicing app where you can direct your date's entire personality and style to save up for an Ivy League school, it's another quirky rom-com that will surely be the talk of the town — or the internet, rather — for weeks after its release.
