Here are the best interactive shows and movies on Netflix right now, based on their IMDb ratings.
While we see innovations in virtually every industry, the entertainment sector is no exception to that. And I’m especially saying that for the TV branch – or audiovisual content, let’s say. That’s because the number of interactive content is getting higher day by day, and Netflix acts like a pioneer. The platform has many interactive movies and series, some of which are seen as the prototypes of this so-called “genre.” So, if you’re interested to see some interactive shows or movies on Netflix, check out our list below.
Best Interactive Content on Netflix
There are many types of interactive content on Netflix ranging from mind-blowing action movies to survival documentaries. Hell, you can even find an interactive show which helps you mentally. Let’s check out all of those.
Black Mirror: Bandersnatch (7.2)
Bandersnatch is undoubtedly what comes to one’s mind when interactive content is mentioned. One of the first examples of its type, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch comes from the popular Black Mirror’s producers. As the series has different premises for each episode, it’s impossible that Bandersnatch is directly connected story-wise to Black Mirror – even though they might take place in the same dystopian universe. However, those two still give a very similar vibe, one which makes you question the reality after watching the thing.
Black Mirror: Bandersnatch tells the story of a young developer who tries to adapt a choices-matter book to a game. As the story of this movie is related to its interactive nature, it all becomes more interesting. You decide how the story will conclude in Bandersnatch. Watch its trailer below.
Headspace: Unwind Your Mind (7.2)
Headspace is a company that specializes in mental health. They also have articles, an app, and video content to help people be in a better mental state. They previously released two guides on Netflix, one of which was a guide to meditation, and the other was a guide to sleep. However, this most recent addition to Headspace’s collection is a comprehensive solution. That’s because it gives the viewers choices based on their needs and wants. Note that there are few reviews of this on IMDb, so the rating might not be completely accurate at this point. Still, it does not hurt to give this one a try!
Headspace: Unwind Your Mind is an interactive experience that suits what you need and want. It touches on sleeping, relaxing, and meditation. Check out its trailer below to get a better sense.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs the Reverend (7.0)
Kimmy Schmidt is the lead character of a Netflix Originals sitcom, namely, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It debuted in 2015 and ended in 2019. Though not wildly popular, the series had a good fan base of its own. With this 2020 movie, Kimmy returns to give the viewers an interactive experience. Check out its synopsis and official trailer below.
“Kimmy sets off on her biggest adventure yet. Three states! Explosions! A dancing hamburger! And you, the viewer, get to decide how the story goes.”
Carmen Sandiego: To Steal or Not To Steal (7.0)
This one is an interactive adaptation of a Netflix original, too, just like Bandersnatch and Kimmy vs the Reverend. Carmen Sandiego is a Netflix original educational cartoon that aired from 2015 to 2019. To Steal or Not to Steal, on the other hand, is a 2020 interactive movie that’s based on the same work.
“You drive the action in this interactive adventure, helping Carmen save Ivy and Zack when V.I.L.E. captures them during a heist in Shanghai,” says Netflix about this movie. You can check out its trailer below.
You vs. Wild (6.8)
Bear Grylls is here! We’re going to help the famous survivalist try and make it in nature by giving tough decisions. We’ll have to complete missions in the harshest environments on our planet. There are nine episodes of this series on Netflix. Here’s the synopsis and the official trailer of You vs. Wild.
