I'm going to be totally honest and admit it: For some reason, I didn't know there are now seven Mano Po movies IN TOTAL. The first Mano Po film was released in 2002 and was so successful that it was followed by star-studded installments, which all focus on the lives and traditions of the Chinese-Filipino community.
For those of us who haven't been able to watch all of them yet, here's some good news: The *entire* film series is dropping on Netflix!
Here are all the Mano Po movies you can binge-watch soon:
Mano Po 1: My Family (October 15)

Mano Po 2: My Home (October 15)
The plot, according to Netflix: "Antonio Chan, a prominent Chinese businessman, has three women in his life—the Filipina Sol, the Chinese Lu Shui, and the Filipino-Chinese Belinda—and to complicate matters further, he has children with all three women.

Mano Po 3: My Love (October 15)
The plot, according to Netflix: "Lilia Chiong Yang seems to have everything a woman could want, including a loving husband who pampers her, children any parent would be proud of, and the respect and admiration of the most powerful people in the land.
