New on Netflix is a weekly feature appearing every Friday, listing all of the week’s newest genre film related additions to everyone’s favorite streaming service–and just in time for the weekend! So pop some popcorn, crack open a few beers, dim the lights, and kill a few hours in Wicked Horror style.
Only a few movies of interest to the genre fan were added to Netflix this week—one horror and a pair of crime flicks. Around my parts, we’re about to hunker down for a frozen weekend, so fingers crossed that these are enough to hold our interest until the thaw.
The Last House on Cemetery Lane (2015)
“Weary of the big city, London screenwriter John Davies heads to an old manor in a quiet country village. The house and town are peaceful at first, but when supernatural happenings interrupt his serenity, he must lay to rest the house’s troubled past.” – From Andrew Jones, the man who brought us such ill-advised sequels as Night of the Living Dead: Resurrection, The Amityville Asylum, and Silent Night, Bloody Night: The Homecoming.
“Three male detectives become embroiled in a tense struggle after a tragic accident that leaves a child in a coma. One is guilty of a crime, one will try to cover it up, and the other attempts to expose it. How far will these men go to both disguise and unravel the truth?” – Star Joel Edgerton (The Thing, 2011) also wrote the screenplay.
“What starts as an unwise way to finance a weekend of pre-college partying ends up as something far worse for the teens in this noir-ish crime drama. After stealing from his boss, Billy Joe learns that the cash he lifted was earmarked for a gangster.” – The first full-length effort from director brothers Simon and Zeke Hawkins.
