Welcome to New on Netflix, a feature here at Wicked Horror in which we provide the latest updates on what’s coming to the streaming service for the week. In recent times, Netflix’s shift in content has been interesting. While many fan-favorite movies and TV shows have been Netflix staples for the better part of a decade, they’ve been taken off the service with more frequency. Some of them return, some of them don’t, and while these are all simply the result of licensing deals that were already in place before these properties even hit the service, they do shed some light on the content provider’s new focus.
Netflix is continuing to shift gears away from movies and TV shows owned by other studios or companies and is producing their own content with staggering frequency. As we continue to provide updates on what’s been added to the service, it will always be interesting to note the balance between original and licensed content being added to the Netflix library.
With that in mind, here are the latest Netflix additions for the week of February 22nd, 2019.
There’s actually nothing new in the horror world this week, but Eli Roth’s Hostel was added at the beginning of the month and is definitely worth noting. While it’s somewhat divisive, this is one of the landmark horror movies of the 2000s, and was produced by Quentin Tarantino. While it is clearly, distinctly an Eli Roth movie, it’s a markably different feature from his earlier effort, Cabin Fever.
