NETFLIX Horror Films Streaming in December 2017

Funny Netflix Plot Summaries

Our holiday season has come to and end and now we head into winter where we’re frost-bitten by holiday-themed family films. Thankfully, there are those who spilled blood in the snow, like the great Stephen King, who will see his Dreamcatcher adaptation streaming on Netflix beginning Dec. 1. Here’s the full list:

AVAILABLE DECEMBER 1

Dreamcatcher

Four friends, tied together through a telepathic bond they gained as children, reunite as adults to fight an invading alien force that controls human beings like helpless puppets and threaten to take over the earth.

Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Morgan Freeman (The Sum of All Fears, Along Came A Spider) stars in this supernatural thriller from the master of horror, Stephen King, with a screenplay by Academy Award-winner William Goldman (Absolute Power, All The President’s Men).  Also starring are Thomas Jane (Deep Blue Sea, Face/Off), Jason Lee (Vanilla Sky, Enemy of the State) and Timothy Olyphant (Gone in Sixty Seconds, Go).”


V for Vendetta

“From the Wachowski brothers and Joel Silver, the masterminds behind The Matrix trilogy, comes another intriguing, action-packed fantasy-thriller.The premise: Great Britain has become a fascist state. Now, a shadowy freedom fighter known only as “V” (Hugo Weaving- The Matrix trilogy) begins a violent guerrilla campaign to destroy those who have embrace totalitarianism. In his quest to liberate England from its oppressive ideological chains, “V” recruits a young woman (Natalie Portman – Star Wars: Episodes I-III) he’s rescued from the secret police to join him on an epic adventure to execute a seemingly impossible task.”


AVAILABLE DECEMBER 15

The Haunting of Helena

“After a divorce, Sophia moves to Italy with her daughter, Helena. Their new home, an apartment within an austere building of the fascist age, is a chance for them to start a new life. But inside an old storage room hides a mysterious closet and a buried secret. After the loss of Helena’s first baby tooth, a chilling obsession begins and an apparition haunts her sleep. Dreams become nightmares. Nightmares become reality. When Helena collects her classmate’s fallen teeth with an urgent hunger, it is clear that there is far more to their new home than can be seen. Sophia finds herself in a terrifying fight to save her child while maintaining her sanity.”


AVAILABLE DECEMBER 22

Bright — NETFLIX ORIGINAL

Humans, Orcs, Elves… everybody is just trying to get along.

The latest film from director David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch) starring Will Smith (I Am Legend), Joel Edgerton (The Gift), and Noomi Rapace (Alien: Covenant, Prometheus).

“Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves, and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward, a human (Will Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it. Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.”


AVAILABLE DECEMBER 23

Creep 2

Creep 2 stars Desiree Akhavan as Sara, a video artist whose primary focus is creating intimacy with lonely men. After finding an ad online for “video work” she thinks she may have found the subject of her dreams. She drives to a remote house in the forest and meets a man (Duplass) claiming to be a serial killer. Unable to resist the chance to create a truly shocking piece of art, she agrees to spend the day with him, but discovers she may have dug herself a hole from which she cannot escape.”

    Glad I didn’t renew Netflix this month.

    Stop Trying to Make Creep 2 Happen!!!

    • MrX13

      The first Creep was horrible! Going to pass on this second film

      • Jeff Eastwood

        C2 was about as good as the first one is all I’ll say lol

        • MrX13

          “just as good as the first one” then sounds like I should pass on it…hahaha

          But I respect your opinion

      • Travis_Bickle

        Smart man! The first Creep is an abomination.

        • MrX13

          It really was, I only saw it because other people said it was good so I gave it shot and feel asleep on some parts but the ending was just…dumb. It tried too hard to be scary but it wasn’t. I just didn’t like it so I know that the second one will be just as dumb with nothing new to it.

          • Travis_Bickle

            Cosign!

  • pablitonizer

    V for Vendetta horror?

    • More like horrible amirit?

    • biff

      Probably scared the shit out of Alan Moore.

  • Carl Chrystan

    I know…as it’s about Great Britain being a fascist state, I’m counting it as more of a documentary.

  • Christopher Nickerson

    So is dreamcatcher any good as a movie? I thought the book was horrible, by far my least favorite book by King

    • David C

      I enjoyed the beginning but the story and acting got real bad and cheesey after about a half hour. Check it out but go into it knowing its as bad as the book.

    • Jeff Eastwood

      Just curious — if Dreamcatcher is by far your least favorite book by King, have you read Insomnia or From a Buick 8?

      • Christopher Nickerson

        No to both

        • Jeff Eastwood

          I’ve tried reading Insomnia all the through twice now and just can’t.
          Thankfully his output since 2008 has been a big improvement.

      • Jeff Eastwood

        I’ve tried reading Insomnia all the through twice now and just can’t. Thankfully his output since 2008 has been a major improvement.

    • zombie84_41

      its not good at all LOL I revisted it after liking it when I first saw it and It wasn’t anything worth talking about.

    • HalesTales

      Personally, I loved it. It’s one of my favorite takes on aliens.

  • V for Vendetta is not a horror film. It’s a superhero/political commentary.

    • The chicken man

      Their definition gets surprisingly loose in these particular articles.
      😉

      • I’m honestly not sure how it even loosely qualifies as horror. Is every film with blood in it a horror film now? lol

    • “It’s a superhero/political commentary.”
      …and a shitty one at that.
      I mean, I get it. The poster is right there next to the Fight Club one on the walls of every frat house around so it clearly has an audience. It’s just one of those movies that thinks it’s way smarter than it is. Cringe.

  • zombie84_41

    Lol lame shit

  • Necro

    Well after finding out that you now have to pay an extra $2.00 a month isn’t all that bank breaking, but one of their reasons (excuses) for doing so is to be able to give us more titles to watch. That being said as far as the Horror section is concerned, it’s an absolute joke! I can rattle off a whole thesaurus of Horror movies that are conspicuously absent from Netflix. There are also some movies that have been on there for months now, so with the $20,000,000 million they stand to make now after their $2.00 a month increase to all their customers, they need to seriously upgrade the Horror section. Or here’s an idea how about branch out and create more Netflix specific services, kind of like HBO Drama, Comedy. Have Netflix Horror, and by that I mean nothing but Horror.

    • Evan3

      Actually, Netflix has been pretty clear that they are getting out of the business of grabbing other people’s titles. They announced they plan to produce 80 original pieces of media next year, which is insane. That’s where the money’s going. And it’s not like they neglect horror in their original programming. Santa Clarita Diet, Slasher, and that Omen parody all came out (as well as that babysitter movie). But more important, new Black Mirror on the way. That alone is worth 2 more bucks.

      • Necro

        I agree with you on that. That is an insane amount to produce. I wasn’t trying to accuse them of really neglecting the genre, I was going on more of hope that one day we’ll be able to have a service that carries nothing but Horror. I was just on it and they don’t have next to any of the classics, next to none of the many franchises that are out there, and if they do it might be a film or two and that’s it. Now I appreciate it for what they do provide, but when you think about all the films available there’s nothing in comparison to the reality of the actual number. That being said though if push comes to shove I’d rather have it then not at all! I just wish the choices would expand to a WHOLE lot more! Lastly I’m a honest person and I didn’t know they were getting away from grabbing other titles, next time I’ll read up before I speak up!

        • Evan3

          I think there’s two drivers. 1) Studios have finally realized what a bonanza of money streaming is and are planning to start their own streaming sites (Disney has announced this); and 2) It’s just too expensive for Netflix to keep buying other content because prices keep rising and they don’t control it.

          For what it’s worth, Netflix still does the DVD/Blu Ray plans. I subscribe to that and thus, my options are virtually limitless (i.e., watched The Fly, Pumpkinhead, and The Sentinel via the DVD plan this Halloween).

          You have ShoutFactory, Screambox, and Shudder that have decent streaming collections. And FilmStruck offers the Criterion Collection streaming, so who can say no to that?

          • Necro

            Yeah that’s definitely a good point!

  • Dave

    Lots of butthurt in this comment thread.

  • cat

    Really need to get a shudder account since all I watch is horror any way lol

    • Michael B

      Just signed up for a free week trial to Shudder. Much better than I was expecting, so I may keep it going for a month or more.

  • Evan3

    I have a morbid curiosity in Bright (I suspect it will be a disaster) but otherwise, these are some exceedingly poor options.

  • Bill Kim

    Pretty sure everything you listed on here that’s “New” streaming for December is or has been playing for a while.

  • AdamX

    Adam’s christmas horror movie tradition is back on!

    Creep 2 is sure to be a yuletide treat!
