Revealed: The Netflix codes that unlock a heap of hidden Christmas movies

Scrolling through movie options is one of the most mundane, mind-numbing new first-world problems we face, but with the Christmas season looming - here are some fresh choices.

Thanks to the way Netflix works, sometimes finding subgenres is made incredibly hard if the film is outside of your regular viewing habits.

The flicks we are offered are based on a complicated algorithm that uses data about users' trends to recommend what to watch next.

Netflix have a bundle of hidden holiday film genres - but they're actually easy to find.

Just login to Netflix and then enter the URL: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/.

Next, you just add one of the number codes below to the end of that URL to access each category.

We've tried them all out, and it's legit.
