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 May 12th, 2017.
Stake Land II: The Stakelander
The long-awaited sequel to surprise indie vampire hit Stake Land has finally arrived on Netflix. It hasn’t been the easiest film to see up until this point. In fact, most fans haven’t even seemed to be aware of its existence. Although it originally premiered on the SyFy Channel, it is not a SyFy original movie. It was produced independently and they scored the rights to show it for the first time. Again set in a world overrun by the undead, Stake Land II reteams Connor Paolo and Nick Damici.
This one’s been making the rounds for awhile, a lot of people have been talking about it. And I’m happy to say that this cool, inventive sort of blast from the past is finally on Netflix where, hopefully, everyone will check it out. Centered around a haunted interactive VHS game, the film stars Barbara Crampton.
