Netflix: Lucky horror, scifi, true crime and thrillers streaming in March


There are not a lot of new horror additions to Netflix for March, but there are a handful of thrillers, true crime and sci-fi. Let’s see what’s coming up!


A Clockwork Orange – Stanley Kubrick’s classic dystopian thriller, released in 1971, enjoyed both box office success and the acclaim of critics. The film follows Alex (Malcolm McDowell) and his band of thugs as they commit horrific crimes of violence, with Alex ultimately being captured and subjected to sadistic “rehabilitation” techniques. Upon its release in the US, A Clockwork Orange was given an X rating, but Kubrick later removed 30 seconds of sexually explicit footage in exchange for an R-rated re-release a year later. The excised footage has since been restored, but updated to an R rating.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007) – Tim Burton directed this film version of the Stephen Sondheim/Hugh Wheeler stage musical. This version stars Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham-Carter and the late, great Alan Rickman. Barber Todd sets up a shop in London, in partnership with Mrs. Lovett (who has a way with a pie).

Winter’s Bone – This bleak murder mystery stars a young Jennifer Lawrence as Ree Dolly, a teenage girl in the Ozarks. To keep her family from being evicted, Ree sets out to find her missing father, a meth manufacturer. The determined Ree ends up clashing with a local crime boss named Thump Milton (remember, these folks are in the back woods). It’s a tense, captivating film, and Lawrence gives a lovely, heart breaking performance. Winter’s Bone won both the Grand Jury Prize (Dramatic Film) and the Best Screenplay Award at Sundance in 2010.

Santa Clarita Diet: Season 3 (NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES) – The first two seasons of this hilarious, bloody series were very entertaining, I am looking forward to seeing what season three brings us! For the uninitiated, Drew Barrymore appears as Sheila Hammond, who works with her husband Joel (Timothy Olyphant) as a real estate agent. Quite unexpectedly, Sheila starts to exhibit some strange symptoms culminating in her becoming some sort of living, flesh-eating zombie. Barrymore and Olyphant are very funny, and I love the copious amounts of blood that regularly fly around.

The Highwaymen (NETFLIX FILM) – Kevin Costner, Woody Harrelson and Kathy Bates star in this crime film. Two retired Texas Rangers try to catch the infamous Bonnie and Clyde. Costner and Harrelson play the Rangers, and Bates plays “Ma” Ferguson, the first female governor of Texas.

Tucker and Dale vs. Evil – Alan Tudyk (Firefly) and Tyler Labine (Flyboys) play a couple of hapless hillbillies on vacation at a mountain shack. A group of dumb college students mistake them for murderers. At one point, Tucker is attacked by bees and waves his chainsaw around to run them off, so naturally, the kids think he is waving the chainsaw at them. This movie is very funny, and also very, very bloody. If you enjoy comedic horror, you will probably like Tucker and Dale vs. Evil.
