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 September 1st, 2017.
Deep Blue Sea
Renny Harlin’s 1999 sharksploitation flick has become something of a cult classic in the years since its release. Centering on super-smart, genetically engineered sharks, it features an eclectic cast including Samuel L. Jackson, Thomas Jane and L.L. Cool J. It’s a fun and funny popcorn flick that’s become recognized as one of the best post-Jaws shark movies over time.
Speaking of sharks, though, the entire Jaws franchise is now back on Netflix for your viewing pleasure. While it seems entirely true to form to put the features back up as soon as it’s officially no longer summer, it’s great to have the whole series in one place. The four movies certainly cover a staggering range in quality, but each have their own merits. The first is obviously a classic. Jaws: The Revenge is notorious at this point, and for good reason. 3D is honestly pretty fun trash and Jaws 2 is a really underrated sequel that deserves a bit more attention.
