The final Netflix Original for November is Locked In, a complete wild card. We don’t know much about this movie, which could mean it’s terrible or Netflix forgot to promote it.

The Neon Films and Gaumont horror thriller stars Famke Janssen, Anna Friel, and Finn Cole and is directed by Nour Wazzi.

Official logline from IMDb:

“A kindly nurse searches for the cause of a coma patient’s injury and discovers bitter rivalry, infidelity, betrayal, and murder.”

Coming to Netflix: Wednesday, November 1st

Whiplash, starring Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons, started Damien Chazelle’s recent success.
