Netflix & Chills: 2018 Streaming Breakdown

 

netflix-and-chills-758x505

Netflix has released their “Netflix and Chills” section to celebrate the biggest month of horror streaming. It’s pretty much an amalgamation of their scary movies, scary TV, and random spooky children’s content (and not even the highest rated out of each category) and I’m here to break it down for you.

There are annotations throughout my breakdown, but it is virtually spoiler free — the one exception being some implied plot points included in the trigger warnings.

Review: Misao

It’s been a little while since I did my review of Mad Father, so this is actually something I’ve been wanting to get to for a little while now since the two games are connected. Now that I am finally getting the chance to write this, I’m really excited.

So let’s just get into it.

Misao

Spoiler Warning: This review does contain heavy spoilers for both Misao, and to a lesser extent, Mad Father. The games are fairly cheap on Steam (and there are free versions available online) so I would recommend giving them a short for yourself before reading this, if you haven’t already done so.

Review: Mother’s Red Dress

“Something happened here. Can’t remember what it was.”

Mother’s Red Dress is a Psycho-drama thriller released by No Restrictions Entertainment in 2011.

It is a very unique film, and one that I’m very excited to talk to you about today.

Spoiler Warning: While I won’t be revealing any details regarding the plot, this is one of those movies where I think the best thing you can do is go in blind – so if you haven’t seen it, you can continue reading at your own risk.

Review: Hereditary

“I never wanted to be your mother.”

Hereditary

What better way to return from my hiatus than with a really, really unpopular opinion? That’s right, I was disappointed in Hereditary.

I will be keeping this review free of spoilers regarding plot, but if you haven’t seen this movie (and want to) I honestly think the less you know going in, the better the experience would be, assuming you don’t get your hopes up too high.

Women in Horror Month

women-in-horror-month

This is just a reminder that today marks the beginning of the 9th Annual Women in Horror Month.

For those of you who don’t already know about this movement, it’s just a way to showcase awesome female creators working in an industry where they’re so often underrepresented.

As a woman and as a horror creator, this is something that means a lot me both personally and professionally, so you’ll be hearing a lot about it throughout the month.

If you’d like to learn more about WiHM, you can check out the official website here:

Women in Horror Month

Or their Facebook Page:

If you’d like to further show your support of the awesome women in horror, you can easily do that by spreading awareness about this movement or even just talking about your favorite terrifying contributions to the genre that have been created by women. This is a great excuse to learn more about the people behind your favorite pieces of media and give them some recognition.

Don’t be afraid to reach out to smaller, independent creators (especially women) and let them know how much you appreciate their work.If you are a creator, this is a great time to promote the work of your female colleagues (and potentially, yourself.)

And finally, if you are a bad-ass lady in the horror industry and would be interested in some free promotion for your work (writing, photography, narrations, art, make-up, games – ANYTHING) by all means contact me. I will be offering free promotion to women in this genre all month long – regardless of experience level, sub-genre or medium. You can comment to this post, you can email me at indefenseofthehorror@gmail.com or you can get a hold of me through Tumblr.

(I’ll also be accepting fan art of any female horror characters, or any fan-made projects inspired by horror that was originally created by a woman.)

This is something I’d also love to hear about from my readers (whether you’re submitting or not) how have women in horror personally influenced or affected you?
