NETFLIX: Horror Films Streaming April 2017!



Funny Netflix Plot Summaries

Short but sweet new additions to Netflix this coming April.

No joke, here’s what will be added:

April 1

A Nightmare on Elm Street

In Wes Craven’s classic slasher film, several Midwestern teenagers fall prey to Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund), a disfigured midnight mangler who preys on the teenagers in their dreams — which, in turn, kills them in reality. After investigating the phenomenon, Nancy (Heather Langenkamp) begins to suspect that a dark secret kept by her and her friends’ parents may be the key to unraveling the mystery, but can Nancy and her boyfriend Glen (Johnny Depp) solve the puzzle before it’s too late?


Horror and humor combine seamlessly in this monstrous box-office hit from Academy Award, Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Steven Spielberg (“Munich,” “War of the Worlds”) and director Joe Dante (“Innerspace,” “Twilight Zone: The Movie”). A small town is besieged by some furry and not-so-cute little creatures after a young man ignores the warnings of a wise elder regarding their care and feeding


Zoinks! Two years after a clash of egos forced Mystery Inc. to close it’s doors, Scooby-Doo and his clever crime-solving cohorts Fred (FREDDIE PRINZE JR.), Daphne (SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR), Shaggy (MATTHEW LILLARD) and Velma (LINDA CARDELLINI) are individually summoned to Spooky Island to investigate a series of paranormal incidents at the ultra-hip Spring Break hot spot. Concerned that his frightfully popular resort might truly be haunted, Spooky Island owner Emile Mondavarious (ROWAN ATKINSON) tries to reunite those notoriously meddling detectives to solve the mystery before his supernatural secret scares away the college crowds. Scooby and the gang will have to overcome their personal differences and forget everything they think they know about fake ghouls and phony creatures to crack the case, save themselves and possibly…the world! Ruh-roh!

April 28

Small Crimes (Netflix original film)

We told you exclusively that E.L. (Evan) Katz‘s dramatic thriller Small Crimes, which stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jacki Weaver, Robert Forster, Gary Cole, Molly Parker, Macon Blair, and even Pat Healy, was acquired by Netflix ahead of the SXSW world premiere. Now, Netflix has supplied us with a trailer and news that it will stream worldwide on April 28, 2017.

Katz may be a fresh name at the upcoming SXSW Film Festival, but he’s actually a genre veteran. Now a director, he made his name by penning Autopsy, as well as two of Adam Wingard’s earlier films, Pop Skull and Home Sick, while also producing Tobe Hooper’s Mortuary. He also directed the best ABCs of Death 2 short, “A is for Amateur”, which was anything but.

[SXSW 2017] Keep up with all of the news and reviews here!

After serving time for the attempted murder of a District Attorney, disgraced former cop Joe Denton (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) returns home looking for redemption. An embarrassment to his parents and abandoned by his ex-wife, it seems as if things can’t get much worse. But then Joe finds himself trapped in the mess he left behind-in the cross fire between a crooked sheriff, the vengeful DA, and a mafia kingpin who knows too much.
