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 April 7th, 2017.
Only for One Night
This thriller kind of snuck up out of nowhere. It’s about a woman who’s husband cheats on her with her sister, an action which manages to have extreme consequences. Those consequences are what wind up steering this one into the realm of horror.
Sequel to the underrated 2002 Scooby Doo, scripted by James Gunn, this one sees the same writer and cast take on real monsters. The characterizations remain pitch-perfect and the cast is expanded to include the likes of Seth Green and Peter Boyle. While it’s not as surprisingly great as the first one, it’s still good, goofy fun and a great way to introduce kids to monsters.
