Netflix: Horror movies and series coming in December


Netflix really brought on the horror for the months of October and November, but the December offerings are pretty slim.  Let’s see what they are leaving under the tree for us.


Bride of Chucky – In the fourth installment of the Child’s Play franchise, our favorite homicidal doll finds his soul mate. As you may remember, Chucky is possessed by the soul of serial killer Charles Lee Ray, and his girlfriend Tiffany tries to bring Ray back to life. Hilarity ensues.

Christine – This was a pretty decent adaptation of Stephen King’s 1983 novel. Christine is a red 1958 Plymouth Fury, and she is purchased 21 years later by teenage loser Arnie. After Arnie begins restoring his new car, she begins to defend him against bullies, and seems to be alive. The movie began filming only days after King’s novel was published.

Hellboy – Based on a comic, Hellboy was directed by Guillermo del Toro, and stars Ron Perlman as an unlikely demon / superhero.

My Bloody Valentine – The original version of My Bloody Valentine was released in 1981. This is the 2009 remake, released in theaters as a 3D film. The plot concerns a small mining town plagued with vicious killings on the tenth anniversary of a Valentine’s night mass murder.

Reindeer Games – Released in 2000, Reindeer Games is a violent crime thriller starring Ben Affleck, Gary Sinise, Charlize Theron, Dennis Farina, and Danny Trejo. When Rudy’s cellmate Nick is killed in prison, Rudy takes on his identity upon his own release. He soon finds himself mixed up in a casino heist.

Shaun of the Dead – In my opinion, this is the best horror/comedy film ever made. SOTD features Simon Pegg (who also co-wrote the script) and Nick Frost. Shaun is a loser, who has to step up to keep himself and those he loves alive during the zombie apocalypse. Although mostly a comedy, SOTD is pretty gory, and the story has some heart.


District 9 – More of a sci-fi/thriller than actual horror, this is still a pretty great (and intense) flick. It’s partially a found footage type film, but also a social commentary of sorts, dealing with the segregation of aliens found in a stalled ship in South Africa. One of the confined creatures attempts to escape the camp with his young son, and crosses paths with Wikus, a well-meaning bureaucrat. District 9 is really good, and I recommend it if you haven’t seen it before.


Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale – The popular Netflix original series is dropping a holiday-inspired episode. During the winter solstice celebration, the Church of Nights parishioners gather ‘round to sing carols and share ghost stories.

Bird Box – One of the more heavily anticipated Netflix offerings is this horror film, with a plot seemingly similar to last year’s A Quiet Place. Based on the novel by Josh Malerman, this post-apocalyptic film follows Malorie (Sandra Bullock) and her two children as they attempt to find someplace safe to live. No one knows what exactly what they are hiding from, since humans cannot look at it without being driven to commit violent suicide.

More from Netflix

Diablero (Netflix original) – Based on El Diablo me Obligo, a book by Francisco Haghenbeck, this is a series about a priest who joins forces with a demon hunter and a paranormal expert / superhero. Together, they search Mexico City for a missing kidnapped girl.

Perfume (Netflix original) – This six episode German series is also based on a book. Six friends obsessed with scent use corpses to create a unique smell, but the question is: who is committing the murders? Seems like a bizarre premise, but I’ll give it a shot.


The Autopsy of Jane Doe – Emile Hirsch and Brian Cox play a father and son, both coroners. While examining an unidentified body, they find several signs of internal trauma, and begin to experience some mysterious events. Stephen King is a fan of this film, so that speaks highly of it.

So, there you have it, readers, the horror offerings from Netflix for December. What do you think, good choices? Or are these gifts you would rather return?
