Oct 6 2021, 8:27 pm

The sun is beginning to set earlier and earlier as we breeze through fall, so why not take some well-deserved me-time and treat yourself to a relaxing night in?

Fire up some popcorn, maybe pour a glass of wine, and let Netflix take care of the rest.

And lucky for you, Netflix Canada has a few enticing titles to check out this week.

Along with the addition of some familiar favourites, there’s a new interactive film, a sports doc, and titles from earlier in October.

There’s Someone Inside Your House

Makani Young has moved from Hawaii to quiet, small-town Nebraska to live with her grandmother and finish high school, but as the countdown to graduation begins, her classmates are stalked by a killer intent on exposing their darkest secrets to the entire town, terrorizing victims while wearing a life-like mask of their own face.

Bad Sport

Bad Sport looks at six unbelievable stories at the intersection of sports and crime, as told by the athletes, coaches and law enforcement officials at the centre of the controversies. Episodes include the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic figure skating scandal; superstar Indycar driver Randy Lanier’s marijuana-smuggling operation; the Arizona State University basketball point-shaving scheme; the horse hitman at the centre of an insurance fraud ring; Calciopoli, the biggest match-fixing scandal in Italian football history; and South African cricket captain Hansie Cronje’s tragic fall from grace. 

Escape the Undertaker

In this interactive film featuring WWE Superstars, the Undertaker has set a trap for the decorated tag team The New Day at his mansion. What they don’t know: the Undertaker’s mansion is an extreme Haunted House, packed to the brim with supernatural challenges. It’s up to viewers to decide the fate of these three poor souls trying to survive the wrath of The Undertaker.
