What to watch in September

This year continues to be rewarding in terms of TV shows and movies. As usual, we give you the finest recommendations of watch you can binge on. Check out what you can indulge in in September:

MIDSOMMAR | Folk horror

A troubled couple travels to a rural Swedish town’s fabled midsummer festival, but what begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult. It is an ambitious, impressively crafted, and above all unsettling flick.

PINOCCHIO | Fairy tale

Pinocchio, based on the beloved fairy tale by Carlo Collodi, stars Oscar winner Roberto Benigni (Life is Beautiful) as the old woodcarver Geppetto, whose puppet creation, Pinocchio magically comes to life. Naïve and curious, Pinocchio tumbles from one misadventure to the next as he is tricked, kidnapped and chased by bandits on his quest to become a real boy.

FREAKY | Horror

Less-than-popular teenager Millie unintentionally switches bodies with the middle-aged serial killer terrorising her town. As the body count rises and the clock ticks down, Millie and her friends have less than 24 hours to stop Murder Barbie before the change becomes permanent.

However, grandpa doesn’t give up easily, and it turns into an all-out war between the two.
