What's New on Netflix? Part 1 - HORROR (7/2/13)

 As part of my continuing series about the ebb and flow of Netflix Instant titles, here are the latest in new genre films! These titles were just added today:


Brain Dead (1990)

Not to be confused with Peter Jackson's Kiwi splatter masterpiece, this thriller about a brain surgeon losing his mind stars the two Bill's (Pullman and Paxton) together at-last!

Bride of Chucky (1998)

This fourth installment in the Child's Play franchise sees Chucky taking a bride when Charles Lee Ray's ex-girlfriend is turned into a psycho doll, too.

The Broken (2008)

Lena Headey stars in this French thriller about a woman whose life spirals into a hazy nightmare after she sees her own doppleganger on the street.

Cheerleader Massacre (2003)

Half-assed fourth installment in the Slumber Party Massacre franchise. Plot? Oh, nubile young cheerleaders; cabin in the woods; you know the rest.

Croczilla (2012)

Also known as Million Dollar Crocodile, the SyFy-esque title Croczilla belies this Chinese monster movie's bizarre plot. When a gangster wants giant crocodile on his menu, the animal wrecks havoc and swallows a bag of $1M (whaaaa?). When townspeople hear of this, they set out to catch the croc and get the money.

Don't Look Now (1973)

Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie star in this classic about a couple grieving the loss of their child, and the eerie visions that haunt them in Italy. A must-see piece that epitomizes British horror of the 70s.

Dying Breed (2008)

This Australian horror movie draws upon Aussie legends such as the Tasmanian tiger and the cannibal Alexander "Pieman" Pearce. Horror fans may recognize Saw/Insidious writer Leigh Whannell, stepping in front of the camera for this one.

The Fly 2 (1989)

Did'ya know Cronenberg's The Fly even had a sequel? This follow-up stars Eric Stoltz and Daphne Zuniga. Stoltz is the son of Seth Brundle (Goldblum), who has inherited his father's bug traits, but tries to cure himself as an evil corporation has nefarious plans for him. Worth a watch for the awesomely nasty FX.

The Manitou (1978)

Tony Curtis vehicle about a tumor that turns out to be the deformed fetus of a Native American shaman. Yuuup. A must-see for that plot alone, right? And I swear the creature (pictured above) is the doppleganger of Tommy Wiseau (The Room).

Sorority House Massacre (1986)

Halloween rip-off about a girl who, after her brother massacres her family, moves away and somehow forgets that the sorority house she moves into used to be her family home. Needless to say, psycho brother comes after her.

The Terror Within (1989)

Chemical warfare has resulted in a post-apocalyptic Hellscape populated by mutants. When a small band of survivors are infiltrated by said mutants, the humans learn first-hand the multiple meanings behind "the terror within."
