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 August 31st, 2018.

Emelie kind of kicked off the trend of inverting the classic “frightened babysitter” trope by making the babysitter the thing to be frightened of, which Netflix obviously capitalized on as well with The Babysitter. This is a much more disturbing film than that one, however, and though it has proven to be pretty divisive since its 2015 release, there’s no questioning that Emelie goes for the throat. That, if anything, definitely makes it worth a viewing.
