Netflix is adding some new movies to its Prime service in the United States.
The streaming giant is rolling out some new series to its service starting today, including the classic horror film “Pandemics In History of France,” which stars James McAvoy as a man with a virus who becomes the host of an “extraordinary” medical experiment in which he attempts to find the cure for a disease that affects people from France, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
While Netflix’s “Pantomimes in History of French” isn’t technically a remake, the movie’s original French producer, Martin Pompidou, will be back as producer on the new series.
Netflix is also releasing the first two episodes of the new anthology series, “A Murder Mystery at the Home of a Murderer,” which follows a woman who’s found the remains of her missing husband in her kitchen.
The original “Pandemic” features a character named Charles, who is played by Christopher Plummer.
It was created by Jodie Foster, and starred a pair of actors who’d appeared in Foster’s short-lived TV series “I Hate Myself for Loving You.”
Netflix’s new series will be available to Prime members for $8.99 a month, which will include a 10-episode season.
The service is offering Prime members the option to download movies and TV shows on demand on a monthly basis.
