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 hits us with a lot of strong material, with some current favorites and old classics alike. Admittedly, things have been lacking of late, with very few new additions at all this month after the bizarre choice to take down almost fifty percent of the horror selection the day before October began.
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 July 21st, 2017.
Mondrothuruth: Monroe Island
In this new film by Manu, a young man and his father move into their ancestral home where their grandfather now lives. Keshu is a troubled teen and his father believes he needs serious psychological help, but Grandfather simply believes that the boy is fundamentally wrong and that nothing at all could help him change that. The movie is a hard-hitting psychological horror that seems to pit the tropes of classics like Old Dark House and The Innocents against the portrayal of superstition and violent youth of George Romero’s Martin.
