2015 may truly be the year of the horror fan. Last month, we looked at the Friday the 13th films in all their bloody and naked glory with 13 Best Friday The 13th Kills and 13 Things You Didn’t Know About The Friday The 13th Films. For today’s deadly day, I thought something different and perhaps more enlightening. I’ve scoured Netflix, literally perused every title in their horror section, and picked 13 films you may have missed, or perhaps never heard of. No Jason, Michael, or Freddy here. Trying to avoid popular franchises and big time money makers.
Here are 13 little-seen horror films to enjoy on Netflix this Friday on the 13th.
This week’s edition of The Digital Wire is positively epic and packed to capacity with major new release announcements. We’ve got some horror, some drama, some more horror, even more horror, action, comic book animation, a 3D documentary starring one of the world’s highest-grossing filmmakers, and finally….horror. Well we are getting pretty close to Halloween and all.
Below you’ll find info on several future home video releases complete with technical specs, release dates, and links to pre-order at Amazon. We would greatly appreciate it if you use those links to order because a small percentage of each order helps keep this website running at max power. The cover art for certain titles has yet to be finalized.

In Housebound, the feature film debut from New Zealand’s Gerard Johnstone (The Jaquie Brown Diaries), Kylie Bucknell (Morgana O’Reilly) is court-ordered to return to her childhood home after being placed under house arrest.
Her punishment is made worse by the fact she’s cooped up with her mother Miriam (Rima Te Wiata) – a well-meaning chatterbox who’s convinced the house is haunted by a ghostly figure in tattered white cloth.
Initially, Kylie dismisses Miriam’s superstitions as nothing more than a distraction from an unfulfilled life of boiled vegetables and small-town gossip. But when she starts to hear whispers and strange bumps in the night, Kylie wonders if she has inherited her mother’s overactive imagination, or if the house is actually possessed by some kind of hostile spirit.
