Nacho Vigalondo's El vecino

One of our favorite directors is back with a Netflix superhero show. Nacho Vigalondo (Colossal, Timecrimes) is directing El vecino, where a loser gets super powers. It's coming to Netflix in Spain, but that usually means we get it here in the states too.

Not sure how to feel as we don't have subtitles, but it's always fun to see Nacho take on something sci-fi or fantasy and just making it about relationships. Though last year's Pooka! was one of his worst works, let's hope this makes him have a come back.

Here's the synopsis and trailer

"Javier is going through a bad patch: he can hardly make it to the end of the month, his business of T-shirts with de-motivational slogans is not quite getting the attention, and his relationship with Lola is shacking. The least thing he needed was for an alien to fall on him and transfer his powers to him before dying."
