New on Netflix is a weekly feature here at Wicked Horror where we take a look at the latest additions to everyone’s favorite streaming service. It can be tough sifting through all those horror titles, not really knowing what’s worth watching and what isn’t. Sometimes, you know exactly what you’re looking for, but when you go to watch it the title has already been taken down. Here, we do our best to let you know what’s been added and re-added from week to week.
As always, the beginning of the month hit us with a lot of strong material, with some current favorites and old classics alike. Admittedly, things have been lacking of late, but some old favorites have returned to the streaming service after a lengthy absence.
The selection is beefing back up, though, slowly but surely. Hopefully that will keep up as we move further into the year.
So kick back, relax, and make some popcorn while we bring you what’s new on Netflix for the week of Friday September 14th, 2018.
This movie was kind of lost in the shuffle of everyone for some reason believing it to be a stealth Venom prequel. But it’s actually a kind of neat return to the claustrophobic space horror of Alien that people have been rediscovering since largely missing it in theaters. It’s surprising that the cast, including Ryan Reynolds, Rebecca Ferguson and Jake Gylenhaal, didn’t drive more people to see this in theaters, but there’s no time like the present now that it’s hit Netflix.
