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’s the latest spooky content added for the week of January 11th, 2019.
I Know What You Did Last Summer
Following on the heels of Scream, this titan of the ’90s teen slasher cycle doesn’t pack quite the same punch, but it does benefit from a shared screenwriter in Kevin Williamson. It’s a bit more of a tried-and-true slasher than Scream. In fact, in a lot of ways, it’s kind of the Friday the 13th to Scream’s Halloween. Of course, despite all that, it will always be known for its ensemble cast of ’90s teen heartthrobs including Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Ryan Phillipe.
