After seeing a fiery object crash nearby, the kids investigate — but come to regret it.” – The latest from The Vicious Brothers, who brought us the Grave Encounters films.
“When pieces of a meteorite strike the Earth and cause icy devastation, two lovers must recombine the fragments to prevent a global deep-freeze.” – Previously known as Christmas Icetastophe, this SyFy production is just as ridiculous as the title suggests.
“Newly arrived at a remote retirement community, blind war veteran Ambrose McKinley learns that it’s being plagued by a slew of animal attacks. When his service dog and his neighbor are savagely killed, Ambrose realizes something sinister is afoot.” – One of the best horror films from last year hits Netflix. Read our review!
