As more Filipino films get added to the thousands of movies accessible through Netflix, it's high time a Pinoy Netflix Original movie is added to the mix.
After an announcement from Netflix and Globe on October 18, we found out that this is finally happening: Dead Kids is officially the first Filipino Netflix Original Film! Set to be released before the year ends, the movie is directed by independent filmmaker Mikhail Red and produced by Globe Studios.
On his Instagram post, he said, "It has always been my dream as a filmmaker to reach a global audience!"
One of the movie's actors, Khalil Ramos, also shared his excitement about #DeadKidsOnNetflix through a Twitter and Instagram post.
Khalil captioned his posts with: "The news is finally out. This is unreal. I’m part of the very FIRST FILIPINO NETFLIX FILM. Wild!!!"
While waiting for the movie's release, you can enjoy other Filipino films available on Netflix such as Mikhail Red's Eerie and Sue Ramirez' Ang Babaeng Allergic Sa WiFi.
