Netflix new logo

“Netflix Horrors” is a regular column in which Shock Till You Drop alerts you to the latest genre titles to hit the VOD service. You can find previous updates via our hub here, but just a heads-up, some titles that we brought to your attention months ago may not be available now. That being said, let’s take a look at the titles that have been included in Netflix’s roster today.

Writer-director Jerome Sable’s Stage Fright is now available. I liked this one quite a bit upon first seeing it and when I revisited the film on Blu-ray I found that I still liked its goofy slasher blend and some of the jokes still held up. I’ll admit it’s not for everyone, but it’s heart is in the right place.

Scream meets Glee in this dark comedy musical about a starry-eyed teenager Camilla Swanson who aspires to follow in the footsteps of her Broadway diva mother. Instead she’s stuck working in the kitchen of a snobby performing arts camp. Determined to change her destiny, she sneaks in to audition for the summer showcase and lands a lead role in the play, but just as rehearsals begin, blood starts to spill, and Camilla soon finds herself terrified by the horror of musical theater.

Also joining Netflix is Alien Abduction. Ryan Larson reviewed this one for us and wasn’t impressed – read his review here.

Directed by Matty Beckerman and written by Robert Lewis, the film concerns a vacationing family that encounters an alien threat. It’s apparently based on the real-life Brown Mountain Lights phenomenon in North Carolina.
