Welcome to 2021 and welcome back to New on Netflix, your weekly update on the films and TV shows added to Netflix’s library. Specifically the spooky ones. The streaming giant’s horror department has always been a mixed bag. However, I’d say they’ve really stepped up their game in the last couple of years with the release of amazing, essential watches. We’ve been treated to must see original programming like The Haunting of Hill House, Velvet Buzzsaw, Hush, and some of the classics we all know and love.
This week our list consists of near death experiences, museum heists and a girl with a dragon tattoo.
