What’s Coming and Going on Netflix in May

What’s Coming and Going on Netflix in May: Paramount Pictures

Paramount Pictures

Let’s not bury the lede here: May brings with it the arrival of Kindergarten Cop 2 on Netflix’s streaming service, as none other than Dolph Lundgren steps into the role of musclebound buffoon who has to deal with children in the name of the law. After that, almost everything else—even the arrival of a number of new Netflix originals, including Chelsea Handler’s new talk show (May 11)—seems to fade into insignificance. But on the off chance that you’re looking for a little bit more from your viewing in the next month, here are five other selections for you to spend time on, as well as complete listings of what’s coming and going across the streaming service throughout the month.


AVA’S POSSESSIONS (2015)
What happens after you’ve been possessed by a demon? Louisa Krause stars as the eponymous Ava as she tries to find answers to that very question in this horror comedy from writer/director Jordan Galland. Come for the fun spin on familiar horror tropes, stay for Carol Kane clearly having a ball as the owner of an occult store who steals every scene she’s in.


ELECTRICITY (2014)
A young girl whose epilepsy literally colors the way she looks at the world—something that director Bryn Higgins brings to life exceptionally well on the screen—leaves her home in order to find out if her brother, who she believed was dead, might actually be alive and living in London. Anchored by a star turn by Agyness Deyn, this movie is oddly, touchingly, beautiful.


THE LAST MAN ON THE MOON (2016)
Everyone knows about Neil Armstrong, but almost no-one recognizes the name of Eugene Cernan, who was the last man to set foot on the moon back in 1972. More than four decades later, he finally shares his story, along with other former astronauts, in this moving look back at the space mission that was, and the future we once had in front of us.


THEY LOOK LIKE PEOPLE (2015)
Step inside a world of intense paranoia, as a young man meets an old friend who has become convinced that humanity is being slowly taken over by creatures who are up to no good. This dark, deliberate update of stories like Invasion of the Body Snatchers will get inside your head and have you wondering about who (and what) is out there yourself. Be afraid.


TO CATCH A THIEF (1955)
Finally, a classic makes its way to Netflix: Alfred Hitchcock’s tale of a retired burglar—Cary Grant, effortlessly charming—who ends up having to investigate a string of thefts after he becomes the prime suspect. Grace Kelly plays Frances Stevens, and you’ll likely fall in love with her even quicker than Grant does. A stylish, fun romp.
