New on Netflix is a weekly feature here at Wicked Horror where we take a look at the latest additions to everyone’s favorite streaming service. It can be tough sifting through all those horror titles, not really knowing what’s worth watching and what isn’t. Sometimes, you know exactly what you’re looking for, but when you go to watch it the title has already been taken down. Here, we do our best to let you know what’s been added and re-added from week to week.
As always, the beginning of the month hit us with a lot of strong material, with some current favorites and old classics alike. Admittedly, things have been lacking of late, but some old favorites have returned to the streaming service after a lengthy absence.
The selection is beefing back up, though, slowly but surely. Hopefully that will keep up as we move further into the year.
So kick back, relax, and make some popcorn while we bring you what’s new on Netflix for the week of March 23rd, 2018.
One of (if not the very best) horror movies of the 2000s, Neill Marshall’s The Descent is an incredible movie about claustrophobia and the suffocation of grief. It’s an incredibly tense monster movie with an all female cast, filled with devastating moments, horrific scares and scenes of fist-pumping excitement in almost equal measure. If you’ve somehow missed this one, it’s absolutely worth a look. But I’m sure someone must have told you that already.
The Descent Part 2
I wasn’t personally a fan of this follow-up that ignores the original ending as an excuse to get the same characters (some who even died on camera) back into the cave, but if the first leaves you hungry for more, you might want to check this out. It’s definitely more action-heavy in the tradition of Aliens and that will likely really work for some people.
