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.
Usually, the beginning of the month hits us with a lot of strong material, with some current favorites and old classics alike while the middle sort of leaves us in a dead zone. We’ve started May off with a bit of a lull but this has continued to pick up throughout the month. We tend to lose a lot at the end of the year, but we gained a lot too, and 2016 got off to a promising start that has had more ups than downs so far.
So kick back, relax, make some popcorn or maybe even munch on some candy corn as we bring you what’s new on Netflix for the week of May 27th.
Slasher – Season One
Slasher is a show that kind of came out of nowhere and surprised everyone. The most jarring thing is the very fact that we’re seeing a slasher renaissance on TV right now. There’s Scream Queens, there’s Scream: The Series, and then there’s Slasher. This Chiller original series also seems to be the one that hardcore horror fans have reacted most positively to. It lives up to its name, feeling like a throwback to the classics and including surprisingly more gore than you’d expect to see on television.
