I was already sold when I saw Allison Janney and Jurnee Smollett starring together in a movie, but then I realized the movie was going to be an intense thriller, and I got even more excited. We’ve seen Janney do a lot of comedy and her fair share of drama, but Lou marks a change of tone and something new in his career. I know she’s going to kill it and this is personally one of my most anticipated Netflix movies for September.
The film, produced by Bad Robot’s JJ Abrams, centers on Lou (Janney) trying to live a quiet life when she is interrupted by a desperate mother (Smollett) who begs Lou to help save her kidnapped daughter during a a huge storm. The two women risk their lives on a dangerous rescue mission, exposing dark and shocking secrets from their past.
Janney and Smollett are joined by Logan Marshall-Green, Ridley Asha Bateman and Matt Craven in a film directed by Anna Foerster.

This one is probably the most controversial of all the movies on this list. I’m not Rob Zombie’s biggest fan myself, and fans of the original 1960s sitcom are only cautiously optimistic about whether or not his rebooted movie will be any good.
The comedy horror film is produced, written and directed by Zombie. It functions as an origin story for beloved characters from the original series, introducing us to Lily and Herman Munster when they first met in Transylvania before moving to America.
Jeff Daniel Phillips and Zombie’s real-life wife, Sheri Moon Zombie, star as Herman and Lily. They are joined by Daniel Roebuck as Earl, with Sylvester McCoy as Igor and Richard Brake as Dr. Henry Augustus Wolfgang.
The Munsters will be released on digital, Blu-ray and DVD on September 27, with Netflix becoming its exclusive streaming home – note that this is not actually a Netflix production, but Netflix is a distributor.

Of all the Netflix movies released in September, Blond starring Ana de Armas as Marilyn Monroe, is probably the most anticipated and talked about of the bunch. Expect Blond to be in the running for next year’s Oscars as producers and the streamer give de Armas a big push to get her nominated in a high-profile actress category.
While some people have been misled into believing Blond is a Marilyn Monroe biopic, it’s not quite true. The movie, from Killing them softly director Andrew Dominik, is based on the fictional novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates. Although the real Monroe inspires the book, it is a biographical fiction novel that boldly reimagines the starlet’s life. The film has generated some controversy due to its rare NC-17 rating.
Adrien Brody, Bobby Cannavale, Xavier Samuel and Julianne Nicholson also star.
