All the best movies to watch on DStv Compact in September 2021.
Executive producer Vivica A. Fox is back with more of Lifetime’s (DStv channel 131) addictive movie thrillers in the “Wrong” series on DStv Compact this September. So wrong they’re right, these stories follow people whose lives spin out of control once they let the wrong person, from egg donors to estate agents, get too close. That makes it the perfect popcorn, cocktail and crime time Saturdays and Sundays at 19:20 on Lifetime throughout the month.
KIX (DStv Channel 114) is showcasing five films we’ve never seen in South Africa before now, including director Jeffrey Lau’s action-comedy-fantasy Kung Fu League, which will have you scratching your head on how he reunited the great masters.
And there’s more action, fantasy and excitement thanks to Studio Universal, who’s bringing us titles like fantasy horror film The Head Hunter, action drama The Archer, and prehistoric action fantasy 10,000 BC.
