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.
Usually, the beginning of the month hits us with a lot of strong material, with some current favorites and old classics alike while the middle sort of leaves us in a dead zone. We’re starting April off with a bit of a lull but hopefully this picks up throughout the month. We tend to lose a lot at the end of the year, but we gained a lot too, and 2016 got off to a promising start that has had more ups than downs so far.
So kick back, relax, make some popcorn or maybe even munch on some candy corn as we bring you what’s new on Netflix for the week of April 22nd.
The Messengers: Season One
Personally, I don’t know too much about this one but it’s gaining traction and seems to have developed something of a fan base. Viewers have reacted very positively to the first season, which is always a good sign. The show centers on a group of people who are fundamentally changed when a being known as The Man falls to Earth. Together, they’re tasked with preventing the oncoming Rapture. It’s a very big, biblical event show but without religious horror we’d have no Exorcist or Omen.
