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 September 22nd, 2017.
Requiem for a Dream
If you’ve got a renewed interest in the films of Darren Aronofsky after the release of mother! Then you might be happy to know that one of his most acclaimed—and most infamous—movies has made it to Netflix. Requiem for a Dream is a bleak, brutal look at addiction. While it might be a heavy-handed anti-drug message, it clearly worked and left an impact on everyone who saw it. The feature is even described by Aronofsky himself as a horror film, so it definitely suits our purposes and serves as our latest recommendation for this week.
