Netflix is on a roll with new original programming lately. September alone has already welcomed such huge hits like unnerving horror I’m Thinking of Ending Things, romantic comedy Love, Guaranteed, sci-fi drama series Away, comedy horror mash-up The Babysitter: Killer Queen and so much more. But of course, there’s still a few other big releases to come, too, and this week (September 16th) is bringing arguably the biggest one of the month.
You may know Tom Holland as Marvel’s current friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, but the young actor is happy to be taking a darker turn in The Devil All the Time. The psychological thriller – based on the Donald Ray Pollock novel of the same name – tells the story of an Ohio man named Arvin (Holland) who must contend with an onslaught of bad people seeking to harm his family.
The film, which is directed by Antonio Campos, features an ensemble cast that includes other huge names such as Bill Skarsgård as Arvin’s father, Haley Bennett as his mother, Robert Pattinson as an evil preacher and Sebastian Stan as a crooked cop.
Early reviews for The Devil All the Time have been mixed, with many critics citing an excessive amount of violence and depressing atmosphere as a negative trait. Nevertheless, one constant can be found – nearly every review praises Tom Holland‘s exceptional performance, ensuring that it’s worth tuning in to this one just to see the young star in a new light.
But if this particular flick doesn’t sound like it’s up your alley, then there are still plenty more Netflix Originals to look forward to in the back half of September. Some of the most notable of those releases include Ratched and Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous on the 18th, Enola Holmes on the 23rd, and The Boys in the Band on the 30th. Needless to say, there’s enough on the way to keep you busy until October inevitably brings even more great stuff to add to your list.
