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 February 2nd, 2018.
While it’s not the most beloved entry in the series, the more comedic, admittedly entertaining installment of the Scream saga has returned to Netflix. What it lacks in scares it makes up for in quirky performances, from Lance Henriksen hamming it up as a faux Roger Corman while actually sharing scenes with Roger Corman, to Parker Posey stealing every single scene she’s in. Which isn’t that hard to do in a Scream movie that largely forgets about Neve Campbell.
Eli Roth’s Cabin Fever is back on Netflix as well. While it’s not for everyone, it’s a splatstick body horror that many grew up with and maybe even introduced some people to the genre in the first place. Now recognized as one of the more seminal horror hits of the early 2000s, it’s worth a look for that significance alone.
