Don’t Kill Me
Good news for those horror-movie lovers! Launched on February 20th, the movie Don’t Kill Me hit the streaming service and has already stunned audiences with its unique story telling on drug use.

The Netflix animation Cat Burglar has been added to the streaming service’s interactive film collection. In this film, the viewer plays Rowdy Cat to break into a museum and successfully steal priceless artwork. With an average runtime of ten minutes, the viewer could play Cat Burglar a hundred times – without viewing the same cartoon twice. Black Mirror creators Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones served as executive producers.
