Hey Creepy Catalogers,
There’s a lot of great horror movies Netflix just added for December and I’m going to watch the best of them this weekend:
Pet Sematary (1989) A frightening Stephen King adaptation about a family who moves into a house parked between a busy highway and a burial ground with the power to bring the dead back to life. You really never see that on House Hunters. The 1992 sequel is also on Netflix.
Tremors (1990). As elder millennials, my sister and I grew up LOVING these movies on TV. They scared the crap out of me and I always wondered what I would do if a race of evil monstrous worms suddenly started jumping out of the ground and eating people. Not only is it a great throwback, it’s a warm-hearted horror movie about people coming together in a time of crisis, which feels good to watch right now:
Chloe (2009). A star-studded psychological thriller I haven’t seen was also added to Netflix this week, so I’ll be watching Chloe for the first time. Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore, and Amanda Seyfried are a wealthy couple and an escort who get embroiled in a dangerous affair. On a tragic note, Liam Neeson was filming this movie in 2009 when his wife, Natasha Richardson, died in a skiing accident. He returned to set and completed his role in two days.
