Netflix Streaming Friday - Week of October 21, 2010
A lot of movies get added to Netflix's Instant Stream every week. Luckily for you, I'm here to dig through what's new and highlight new releases that may be of interest to BGH readers. Halloween is right around the corner and Netflix is really ramping up the horror releases. Tons of stuff this week. And without further adieu, joining the ranks of the Instant Stream this week are:
Amityville II: The Possession (1982)
At the risk of losing some nerd-cred, I have to come clean: the only Amityville movie I've ever seen was "Part 3D". Checking this one out.
It's exactly what it sounds like: awesome.
Blood and Donuts (1995)
David Cronenberg (yes, that David Cronenberg) acts in a movie about a vampire finding love at a local donut shop. That might be the strangest synopsis for a film I've ever read.
Blood Trails (2007)
Slasher flick with fixed gear riding hipsters. Hooray!
The Butcher (2005)
Get this: some college students go on a road trip, they get in a car accident, and the nearest house is occupied by a homicidal butcher. Who'd have thunk it?
Child's Play (1988)
Classic. Horror icon Chucky makes his film debut.
Contamination .7 (Troll 3) (The Creepers)(Troll 3: Contamination .7)
Yes. An unofficial sequel to "Troll 2" that's been known under four different names. That's gotta be good!
Diary of a Cannibal (Cannibal) (2007)
Everyone's heard of online dating horror stories. Junkies that start jonesing during dinner, photos that are half a decade out of date, philanderers, etc.. But what if that person turns out to be a cannibal? Find out!
Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (1965)
Horror anthology with Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee and Donald Sutherland? Fuck. Yes.
The Frightening (2001)
Kid transfers to a haunted high school. I don't think I've ever read a more generic sounding film synopsis.
Sherman Helmsley in a ghost movie. If that doesn't make you want to watch it, I don't know what would.
Hangar 18 (1980)
Sounds like the film version of the Megadeth song. Or the other way around because the movie is older than the song. You know what I mean.
Haunted Highway (Death Ride) (2006)
Note to self: never shove your dead mistress in your trunk and attempt to dump the body in a lake. Spooky shit will happen.
Jaws of Satan (1981)
Satan returns to earth in snake form in Christina Applegate's film debut.
Creepy demon Grandmas? Streaming to my TV? Alright!
Monster Dog (1985)
Alice Cooper. Monster Dogs. Recipe for success.
Mummy Maniac (2007)
Ripped from the headlines! Dude gets coddled by his mom as a child and starts killing people and mummifying their heads.
My Bloody Valentine (1981)
The original, 2D film. Probably going to scope this one out.
My Mom's a Werewolf (1989)
Sounds like "Teen Wolf" without Michael J. Fox. Meh.
Night of the Scarecrow (1995)
Possessed scarecrow kills kids. Sounds like it could be fun with enough booze.
The Thing Below (2004)
Sounds like "John Carpenter's The Thing" on an oil rig. Sadly, no Kurt Russell or Wilford Brimley.
If you're a Cronenberg fan, you owe it to yourself to check this out. Exploding heads and Michael Ironside engaging in psychic fights. One of my favorites.
Ulli Lommel's Black Dahlia (2006)
Don't confuse this movie with the movie about the Black Dahlia killer with Scarlett Johansson. Sounds like a low budget movie rushed out the door to capitalize on confusion with the other movie.
Witchboard III: The Possession (1995)
For those of you who loved the burning ouija board in "Paranormal Activity", here's a film about an evil ouija board!
Wolves of Wall Street (2002)
Finally! A film that answers the questions, what happens to investment bankers that have to work 18 hour days but are also werewolves. You have no idea how long I've been waiting to figure out how that works!
So BGH readers, checking anything out this week? Thoughts on any of these new releases?
