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 June off with a bit of a lull but hopefully this continues to pick 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 June 10th.
Cold in July
Cold in July is not really a traditional horror film, but it is very dark and comes from gifted horror director Jim Mickle who previously directed films like Stake Land and We Are What We Are. This one is based on the book by Bubba Ho-Tep author Joe Lansdale with a cast including Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepard and Don Johnson.
A new take on a concept we’ve seen a couple of times now, Dark Web is about kidnapped women who are auctioned off to millionaires to be hunted for sport. The hunt is broadcast worldwide on the dark web. It’s a very uncomfortable and timely idea, although it kind of seems to appear a smarter film than it actually is.
