Welcome to New on Netflix, a feature here at Wicked Horror in which we provide the latest updates on what’s coming to the streaming service for the week. In recent times, Netflix’s shift in content has been interesting. While many fan-favorite movies and TV shows have been Netflix staples for the better part of a decade, they’ve been taken off the service with more frequency. Some of them return, some of them don’t, and while these are all simply the result of licensing deals that were already in place before these properties even hit the service, they do shed some light on the content provider’s new focus.
Netflix is continuing to shift gears away from movies and TV shows owned by other studios or companies and is producing their own content with staggering frequency. As we continue to provide updates on what’s been added to the service, it will always be interesting to note the balance between original and licensed content being added to the Netflix library.
With that in mind, here are the latest Netflix additions for the week of July 19th, 2019.
Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein
I haven’t had the chance to check this one out yet, but everything about this absurd Netflix Original mockumentary caters to my interests. The wonderful David Harbour stars as both himself and a fictional version of his own father, telling the tale of his dad’s doomed stage production of Frankenstein. The trailer for this was delightful, so hopefully the whole thing is just as absurd.
