Welcome to New on Netflix, a feature here at Wicked Horror in which we provide the latest updates on what’s coming to the streaming service for the week. In recent times, Netflix’s shift in content has been interesting. While many fan-favorite movies and TV shows have been Netflix staples for the better part of a decade, they’ve been taken off the service with more frequency. Some of them return, some of them don’t, and while these are all simply the result of licensing deals that were already in place before these properties even hit the service, they do shed some light on the content provider’s new focus.
Netflix is continuing to shift gears away from movies and TV shows owned by other studios or companies and is producing their own content with staggering frequency. As we continue to provide updates on what’s been added to the service, it will always be interesting to note the balance between original and licensed content being added to the Netflix library.
With that in mind, here’s the latest spooky content added for the week of September 28th, 2018.
Hold the Dark
Hold the Dark tells the story of an Alaskan village that has just called in a hunter to kill the wolf that has already claimed three children’s lives. But the expert they’ve summoned only finds himself at the center of a much larger mystery. This latest Netflix Original movie has some potential and while it immediately draws comparisons with something like The Grey, it appears to be an entirely different beast altogether.
