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.
Usually, the beginning of the month hits us with a lot of strong material, with some current favorites and old classics alike while the middle sort of leaves us in a dead zone. We’re starting May off with a bit of a lull but hopefully this picks up throughout the month. We tend to lose a lot at the end of the year, but we gained a lot too, and 2016 got off to a promising start that has had more ups than downs so far.
So kick back, relax, make some popcorn or maybe even munch on some candy corn as we bring you what’s new on Netflix for the week of May 6th.
We’ve got sharks and we’ve got Dolph Lundgren and that alone should make this worth the watch. Specifically, the plot centers on an exotic animal dealer who accidentally unleashes a bull shark on Lake Tahoe. Honestly, the movie just sounds like gold, but maybe people who have actually seen it would think differently.
Ava’s Possessions seems like a really interesting, quirky horror comedy about a woman who is recovering from having been possessed. She joins a support group to help deal with what she’s done and to try and remember everything that happened to her. With the wealth of possession films out there right now, a movie like this feels like a breath of fresh air.
Directed by Steven C. Miller—who’s already given us awesome, entertaining stuff like Silent Night and Under the Bed—Submerged is an extremely claustrophobic thriller about a car that goes off the road and leaves a group of people trapped under water.
