Welcome back to New on Netflix! 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 we have two movies and a new season of a thrilling series!
When a centuries-old witch’s curse threatens his town, young Norman Babcock discovers he is the only one who can stop it. Why? Because Norman has the ability to speak with the dead. And he’s found he often prefers their company to that of the living. When the curse cases zombies their graves, Norman must summon all his courage and compassion and push his paranormal abilities to the limit and get help in unlikely places to save his fellow townspeople. ParaNorman arrives on Netflix October 18th!
