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 Friday August 24th, 2018.

Ghoul 

Another Netflix original series, Ghoul sounds really interesting. I have to admit my bias, though, because I will watch just about anything with the word “ghoul” in the title as it’s a term and concept that has always fascinated me. This series centers on a mysterious prisoner who arrives at a remote military installation and begins to turn the tables on his captors, exposing their darkest secrets. It feels like a mixture of Day of the Dead and Storm of the Century, so it certainly has potential.
