Move to Heaven

Move to Heaven tells the touching story between Geu-ru, a young man with Asperger’s syndrome, and his ex-con uncle Sang-gu who suddenly became his guardian after Geu-ru’s father passed away. Working as trauma cleaners where they have to clear out and clean up the apartment and possessions of the deceased, the pair slowly begin to learn what it means to be a family as they uncover different stories left behind by those who have departed.

Army of the Dead

A zombie outbreak has left the town of Las Vegas in ruins and walled off from the rest of the world, but all of that’s about to change for Scott Ward, a former zombie war hero, who’s been approached by casino boss Tanaka with a luring proposition to retrieve $200 million from inside a vault that lies beneath the Las Vegas Strip. The only catch? The strip is also a zombie-infested quarantine zone. Tempted by the deal and with little left to lose, Ward gathers a team of experts to pull off the heist together. But with a horde of smarter, faster Alpha zombies closing in on them, and only 32 hours to pull off the heist before the strip is nuked by the government, who will end up surviving the greatest heist ever attempted?

Jupiter’s Legacy

We’re not sure if we really need another superhero show on Netflix but the storyline of Jupiter’s Legacy certainly sounds promising. As the first generation of superheroes step aside after keeping the world safe for nearly a century, their children must now bear the responsibilities in order to continue the legacy. But tensions quickly rise as the young heroes, eager to prove their worth, struggle to live up to their parents’ standards and public reputations. Based on the superhero comic, by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely, of the same name, Jupiter's Legacy is a gripping superhero drama that weaves in the complex dynamics of family, power, and loyalty.

The Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness

When one of America’s most notorious serial murderers David Berkowitz, aka the Son of Sam, was arrested and convicted in the 1970s, a gruesome nightmare was finally put to an end – or was it? For journalist Maury Terry, this was just the beginning. Convinced that Berkowitz did not act alone, Terry spent decades trying to uncover the truth behind the murders. This documentary looks into old news footage, conversations with those who were close to the investigation, and Terry’s own words and case files – but what’s fact and what’s fiction? Are there still more ‘Sons of Sam’ out there? Or was it all wasted effort for Terry?
