There are two new horror gems on Netflix UK this month – Viral and The Neon Demon.
Viral is a story of two teenage sisters struggling to survive a deadly virus outbreak. This genre is a bit overdone, but this is a fresh take on it. The acting is realistic and not overly dramatic, while the gore is bloody and beautifully disgusting! My favourite element of this was the dynamic between the two sisters – the horror genre’s Anna and Elsa. I loved this.
The Neon Demon
I’d been waiting for this movie to make it to Neflix for ages! So I was delighted when one of my Best of Netflix Horror buddies informed me that it was one of the new additions this month!
This is absolutely stunning movie. Florescent, throbbing colours and lots of slow disturbing scenes. This shows horror of a different kind -the horror of the human species and vanity. Fresh-faced 16 year old Jesse arrives in LA to try to make it as a model. What follows is a disastrous kaleidoscope of events. This is weird and beautiful and utterly disturbing. I loved it and it’s nothing like any other film I’ve seen.
Netflix, you did not disappoint with these two beauties!
What did you think of these movies? Are you looking forward to anything on Netflix this month?
