The very best Netflix picks for your weekend ahead

Brought to you by Chicago Town Takeaway

A whole host to choose from.

The weather isn't great this weekend, so you may as well chill out with a movie, or a TV show, or a documentary, or a stand-up set, that kind of thing.

Luckily for Netflix subscribers, there's a rake of such content available at the click of a button.

What's more, there's no need to hover around searching for two hours as we've done the hard part for you...

Movie: Apostle

The writer and director of the Raid series, Gareth Evans, returns with this violent Wicker Man-esque horror that places Dan Stevens (The Guest, Beauty and the Beast) in a very, very precarious position.

Perfect spooky viewing as we count down the days to Halloween...

TV Series: Santa Clarita Diet

The intense charm of Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood, Justified) and Drew Barrymore (lots of things) powers this story of two real estate agents just trying to get by while also dealing with the fact that one of them is a zombie.

Now two seasons young, Santa Clarita Diet is all about short bursts of comedy - and gore - and it's a breezy, fun - if occasionally disgusting - ride for it.

As noted above, it really is all about the chemistry between Olyphant and Barrymore, who shine in pretty much every single scene.

Documentary: Long Shot

At only 40 minutes long, Long Shot probably can't be expected to pack too much punch.

And yet, this true life tale of one man's desperate and highly unlikely attempt to clear his name hinges on a twist so unbelievable that your jaw might genuinely hit the floor.

Trust us, don't read up on this one, don't watch the trailer, just go in blind and be amazed.

Classic: Pulp Fiction

Gear up for Quentin Tarantino's next sprawling crime-flecked Los Angeles adventure with the one that cemented his reputation after Reservoir Dogs brought him to the dance.

The amazing thing about Pulp Fiction is how well it has aged. You know the characters, the stories, the aesthetic, the music and you damn sure know the dialogue, but this really is QT at his best.

(Apart from Jackie Brown which will always be his masterpiece.)

Stand-Up: Chappelle

It's a two-for-the-price-of-one affair as Dave Chappelle makes his return to the comedy arena in this Netflix Original double pack from 2017.

No better way to tee up the man's arrival into Dublin next week...
