The sequel to one of the most divisive Netflix films of all time has just been added to the streaming service’s catalogue. 365 Days: This Day is the sequel to 2020’s 365 Days, and it appears like it’s going to be met with the same level of criticism. Our ranking of the most popular Netflix programmes doesn’t seem to include it either.

For those who aren’t familiar, Blanka Lipiska’s work serves as the inspiration for Polish sexual thriller 365 Days. Massimo (Michele Morrone) imprisons Laura (Anna-Marie Sieklucka) and gives her precisely one year to fall in love with him before he kills her. At the time of its release, the film was compared to the famous 50 Shades of Grey series for its concentration on sexually graphic scenes and questionable conduct.

Rotten Tomatoes rated the film a rare zero percent, and reviewers were outraged by its portrayal of sexual brutality and the glorification of organised crime. More than 95,000 people signed a petition urging Netflix to remove the video from their service. British singer Duffy penned an open letter to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings slamming the streaming service for allowing the film to be shown on its service.

According to many reviewers, “softcore” was a misnomer, yet Netflix’s most-watched films charted high in several nations, including the United States, Canada, and Great Britain. Covid-19’s delay in filming caused some delays, however 365 Days: This Day is now accessible for streaming.

Let us know what you think in the comments section below! Early reviews don’t seem to be any more favourable than those of its predecessor, at least not yet. Even though there are just a few reviews out there at the moment, they’re all very scathing. 365 Days: This Day’s audience rating on RT is presently at a dismal 25 percent, which isn’t helping matters (the first settled with a shocking 29 percent ).

If you’re looking for anything fresh to watch this week, 365 Days: This Day isn’t going to make the cut. In addition, considering how contentious and divisive this film series has been, we wouldn’t be surprised if Netflix decided not to finish the trilogy.
