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 hit us with a lot of strong material, with some current favorites and old classics alike. This month has been on-and-off with selections, but we’ve definitely seen some classics and highly anticipated original content.
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 29TH, 2017.
I can’t believe it’s finally here. After years of being hailed as the “unfilmable” Stephen King adaptation, Gerald’s Game hits Netflix today. Directed by Mike Flanagan, starring Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood, it boasts a simple yet terrifying premise. A woman is tied up on a bed during a kinky sex game with her husband in their cabin in the middle of nowhere. It’s meant to spice up their marriage, but it only results in a heart attack for the husband while the wife is forced to find a way out of this situation before she starves to death—or worse. Directors ranging from Stuart Gordon to Mick Garris have wanted to tackle Gerald’s Game over the years. Now you can finally see the adaptation for yourself.
