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 hits us with a lot of strong material, with some current favorites and old classics alike. Admittedly, things have been lacking of late, with very few new additions at all this month after the bizarre choice to take down almost fifty percent of the horror selection the day before October began.
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 September 8th, 2017.
If you haven’t seen it yet, this Netflix comedy from the director of Tucker & Dale vs. Evil is actually pretty fun. It stars Adam Scott as, essentially, the stepfather of the antichrist. It’s a very obvious riff on The Omen, but the concept is admittedly funny and while not every joke lands, it’s certainly enjoyable.
While not overwhelmingly beloved, The Forgotten is returning to Netflix on September 11th. This Julianne Moore vehicle may be a bit bland, but it’s not necessarily terrible, either. You might be better off going in blind, as most of the film’s big shocks were revealed in its trailer when it was released back in 2004. If you don’t actually know what’s coming, it might definitely have a few surprises in store, at the very least.
