What to watch this week: Strippers and murder on Amazon Prime, and Netflix’s new Korean horror

My Celebrity Life –
The Chippendales, terrifying demons and new Scandi crime action are ready to shake up your viewing habits

Sick of safe and boring terrestrial telly?

We’ve compiled the best shows to stream this week, including a sleazy Scandi crime series, and a lurid Amazon Prime docuseries about the most famous male strip-tease troupe in the world.

Prime

Curse of the Chippendales

Sex, murder, drugs and baby oil make up the mix of this flashy but gaudily entertaining cocktail of a true-crime docuseries.

Following the 1980s rise of LA-based male strip outfit The Chippendales, it’s a throwback to big hair, tiny thongs and lust-fuelled hedonism that strips the glamour from the stripping industry.

My Celebrity Life –
Curse of the Chippendales will hit Amazon Prime

Available now.

Netflix

Hellbound

Once it was all about Denmark and Scandi-noir but now, thanks to Squid Game, South Korea is having its turn as the coolest kid on the TV block.

Another horror series for you (Picture: Netflix)

Which means this doomily atmospheric horror series (above), featuring impressively rendered, death-delivering demons, will depress the bejesus out of millions more than it would have done a year ago. Sleep well.

Available Friday.

Hapless

There’s an upliftingly punky backstory to this comedy, which follows the (yes) hapless misadventures of Paul Green (Tim Downie), a reporter on fictional rag The Jewish Enquirer.

Writer/director Gary Sinyor self-financed the project and it could have languished in streaming obscurity. But now, signed to Netflix, it’s getting rave reviews. It’s bang on the cringe zeitgeist.

Available now.

Walter Presents

Witch Hunt

We’re in Norway but there’s something sleazily relatable about this tale of big-money backhanders and high-level corruption — sleaze with a capital S. Ingrid Bolsø Berdal plays Ida, a lawyer who finds her moral code compromised when her boss asks her to turn a blind eye to the finagling of her firm’s wealthy client.

Will Ida stay schtum?

Available now.
