(SPOT.ph) Streaming platform Netflix doesn't only have a catalogue of shows and movies for you to watch, they also have original content you can stream at your fingertips. They've produced the Martin Scorsese film The Irishman, South Korean drama Arthdal Chronicles, and even their first Thai original series The Stranded. It's been fun viewing classic Pinoy rom-coms and indie films, but this time around, Netflix is set to release their first Filipino original film Dead Kids, directed by Mikhail Red. In time for its December 1 premiere, Netflix has dropped the trailer for the movie.
Dead Kids is a film featuring Sue Ramirez, fresh from her film Cuddle Weather, LSS's Khalil Ramos, Markus Paterson, and Vance Larena, alongside rising stars Kelvin Miranda, Gabby Padilla (you may have seen him in Billie and Emma), and Jan Silverio. Red has mentioned that while the film might look like a suspense thriller, it also pushes the envelope by mixing several genres, all the while presenting social commentary on the Filipino youth's involvement and place in society.
Earlier this year, Red uploaded a photo of the cast on his Instagram and announced that he was working on the film. On October 18, Netflix confirmed that Dead Kids would be the platform's first Filipino original film. Red holds several firsts for Netflix: Birdshot, which talks of police brutality and farmers' struggles, was also the first Filipino film to stream on the platform.
Dead Kids starts streaming December 1 on Netflix.
