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 December 29th, 2017.
Before I Wake
This long-awaited film by Hush, Oculus and Gerald’s Game director Mike Flanagan finally becomes available in America thanks to Netflix. For some reason it’s been held up from release over here for a few years, though it has seen an International DVD and Blu-ray release. Now the acclaimed film starring Thomas Jane can actually be seen without any hoops to jump through. For most, this should be a bit of a relief.
