5 Fantastic Netflix Releases To Watch If You’re Staying In This Friday Night

Alana Laverty

Not every Friday is fit for pints, hitting the town and getting locked.

Some Fridays are destined to be spent under a duvet with a laptop and a tub of ice cream. 

So we’ve kindly rounded up some of Netflix’s very best flicks for your perusal. 

You’re so welcome x

1. Frequency 

NYPD Detective Raimy Sullivan discovers that she is able to speak to her deceased father via his old ham radio. Her attempts to save his life trigger the “butterfly effect”, changing the present in unforeseen ways. To fix the damage, she must work with her father across time to solve a decades-old murder case.

Creepy? It is. 

2. Clinical 

Feel like being scared shitless this evening?

The this is the one for you – and it was only released today. 

A psychologist’s horrifying encounter with a disturbed young patient continues to haunt her – causing her to question her own sanity as her visions of the past become increasingly more visceral. The trailer should be enough to terrify you.  

3. Sing Street 

You must’ve been living under a rock for the last year not to have this one. 

Compulsory watching. 

4. Whiplash 

A promising young drummer enrolls at a cut-throat music conservatory where his dreams of greatness are mentored by an instructor who will stop at nothing to realise a student’s potential. You’ll feel every burning frustration yourself. 

Excellent flick. 

5. A Most Violent Year

A thriller set in New York City during the winter of 1981, statistically one of the most violent years in the city’s history, and centred on a the lives of an immigrant and his family trying to expand their business and capitalise on opportunities as the rampant violence, decay, and corruption of the day drag them in and threaten to destroy all they have built.

Happy vegetating.
