This is a short list of what I deem to be “must-see” horror films, currently available to stream VIA Netflix.
In a small Pennsylvania town, something evil has come in search of prey. But who is the true monster in Hemlock Grove? The brutal slaying of a teenage girl sends the townspeople of Hemlock Grove into a desperate search to find her killer.

As they hunt for a monster among them, rumors mount and many of the eccentric residents become suspects, from the newly-arrived Gypsy family to the wealthy Godfrey clan.

You know, that sort of movie with new England towns, gothic horror, and an absolutely absurd casting choice for […]
The Absent is certainly a curious film in its interplay of reality and fiction. On one hand, it is a mildly interesting and particularly average slasher film.
