Ahead of the live-action remake of this iconic anime next month, check out the 1998 original, now available on Netflix.

Long hailed as one of the most influential anime of all time, Cowboy Bebop takes place in a post-apocalyptic universe where Earth is almost entirely uninhabitable. The series is a neo-noir western about bounty hunters or “cowboys” who bring criminals to the Inter Solar System police for a fair price.

The cowboy crew often encounter events that endanger them and also force them to face their past traumas.

Guimoon: The Door Without Light

Available on Viu from October 30


Watch this South Korean horror movie that arrived on Viu just in time for the Halloween season.

It is an abandoned training center that has seen supernatural events since a heinous crime happened there in 1990 – when a building manager murdered guests at the center and committed suicide.

Since then, deaths have occurred every year at the center, forcing it to close.

A paranormal investigator, played by actor Kim Kang-woo, is undeterred by the seemingly cursed building as he searches for clues about his late mother, a shaman who died during an exorcism at the center. But he is not the only one, since three college students also brave the center to film a video for a competition.
