If you haven't heard of the 365 Days series of movies, they're an atrociously reviewed trilogy of erotic films featuring a woman who gets kidnapped by a mafia boss and is given a year to fall in love with him.
So far, so creepy, but since this isn't a horror movie they end up having sex a lot and she ultimately does decide to stay with her kidnapper, which is pretty messed up.
The first movie dropped on Netflix back in 2020, while the sequel 365 Days: This Day released earlier this year and was shot back to back with The Next 365 Days.
The previous two films got absolutely zero positive critical reception, though plenty of Netflix viewers liked it for... obvious reasons, at least enough for them to keep making more.
Audiences watching The Next 365 Days aren't going into it expecting Citizen Kane or anything, but even then many aren't happy with it and they've all got the same complaint.
Over the halfway point in The Next 365 Days. Here are some thoughts: Laura's best friend is a drunk annoyance. TURN OFF THE MUSIC. STOP THE SOUNDTRACK. This is an unending music video and it is not a good choice.— Elle Jamey (@eenslaved) August 21, 2022

75% music video 😂
Ready kana sa recap sa next chismis session @dahlinspeaks ? 😂😂😂
Everyone who has given this movie their time has been complaining that it's basically just one big music video with some sex scenes.
One person wrote that the film was an 'unending music video' they wanted to turn off, while someone else complained that 'every scene has music in this'.
Another viewer said 'we all know these movies aren't the best' but described The Next 365 Days as 'by far the worst' of the bunch, naming the music and writing as the most obvious problems it has.
The film has been slammed by viewers as just a procession of 'mediocre sex and music every 30 seconds', which given the series track record with reviews is probably one of the best they've ever had.
As for the music itself, if it's going to be blaring for almost the entire movie you'd hope it was good, but apparently it's 'somehow even worse' than in previous instalments.
If you're into watching two hours worth of a music video punctuated by sex scenes founded on a really creepy dynamic, then The Next 365 Days sounds like the movie for you.
You would also sound like someone who needs to get a better taste in movies. There has got to be a better way to spend a couple of hours of your life.
If you really must watch it, The Next 365 Days is available to stream now on Netflix.
