This week is Halloween-next Sunday, October 31-, and as such, all VOD platforms have been releasing throughout this month ideal proposals for this time of year, from series such as I know what you did last summer to films like the Rec saga or specials like the Muppets in the Haunted Mansion. But also other content for those who do not like monsters and ghosts.
And this week there are also a diversity of premieres, like Netflix with its Thieves Army, Zack Snyder’s prequel to Army of the Dead that Netflix premiered last March of this year. In the film focused on the character of Ludwig Dieter, he is challenged to burst the most protected safes in Europe, in a plot that in passing will tell us where that zombie epidemic that devastates the world arises.
Also the third season of Luis Miguel, one of the most successful Latin American series focused on the life of the famous singer Luis Miguel, and that in its new episodes will feature moments such as the millionaire demand he had to deal with or his relationship with another musical icon: Mariah Carey. Or the sequel / reboot of Gossip Girls, which will premiere its first five chapters this week and the following in November.
