True crime thriller Lost Girls and everything else on Netflix this March

Netflix delivers a load of suspense this March, from true crime thrillers to Aussie alien invasions. See our six highlights for the month below, followed by the full release schedule of all shows and movies coming to the streaming service.

Spenser Confidential

The Berg Bros Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg team up for a fifth time in a row—following Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon, Patriots Day and Mile 22—for this buddy-action comedy about an ex-cop who teams up with his roommate (Winston Duke, Us) to take down the murderers of two Boston police officers. Co-stars Oscar-winner Alan Arkin (Argo).

Spenser Confidential streams from 6 March

Ozark: Season 3

Jason Bateman (Horrible Bosses) and Laura Linney (Sully) return for the third season of the Emmy-winning, Golden Globe-nominated crime series about a suburban family laundering millions in the Missouri Ozarks.

Ozark: Season 3 streams from 27 March

Lost Girls

Liz Garbus, director of Oscar-nominated Netflix doco What Happened, Miss Simone?, makes her narrative feature debut with this based-on-a-true-crime drama about a mother (Amy Ryan, Birdman) whose relentless search for her daughter leads to something far more sinister. Co-stars Kiwi actor Thomasin McKenzie, continuing her golden run after juggernaut performances in Jojo Rabbit and Leave No Trace.

Variety says: “Liz Garbus takes the serial-killer thriller and turns it on its head, insisting that we see the victims as larger than the crimes that destroyed them.”

Lost Girls streams from 13 March

Castlevania: Season 3

Following the successes of Detective Pikachu and Sonic the Hedgehog in cinemas, Netflix’s Castlevania series is helping to prove that maybe videogame adaptations can work after all. This new season sees Belmont and Sypha settle into a village with sinister secrets and Alucard becoming a mentor for a pair of admirers.

Castlevania: Season 3 streams from 5 March

The Platform

In a dystopian prison tower where inmates are fed only scraps from the cell above, one person makes it his mission to disrupt the entire system in this Spanish horror sci-fi.

The Platform is my favorite kind of genre film,” writes JM Mutore from Birth.Movies.Death., “one that presents a completely fantastical idea, grounds it with a kind of internal logic, and then propels that idea to its psychological and emotional extremes.”

The Platform streams from 20 March


The great Temuera Morrison co-stars in this Australian action sci-fi that sees an alien invasion tear up an ARL footy pitch before occupying the rest of the country. With the human race on the brink of extinction, a small rebellion forms to take on the alien menace.

When the film played in Aotearoa cinemas back in 2018, we had a bloody lovely yarn with Matua Morrison about the film as well as Tem’s attempt to be NZ’s Liam Neeson, the short film he made, how good catering makes all the difference, and heaps more.

Occupation streams from 1 March
