Although these Netflix additions weren’t listed in advance of July’s arrival (the company loves to throw in a few surprises each month, and for that we’re grateful), they’re here, and they’re wicked good. So we’re sharing a few recommendations with you, as most of these new additions are superb works.

First up, look for The Girl in the Photographs. This is the final film Wes Craven produced, and that feels appropriate given the fact that this one is a tense slasher with a few humorous moments sprinkled in for good measure. It’s worth your time and then some.

Synopsis: A bored young woman in a sleepy community called Spearfish starts receiving photographs of brutally murdered young women. Are they real or staged? The culprit is either a serial killer or some creep with a sick sense of humour.

Next up we’ve got Backtrack, an emotional little tale that proves both eerie and melancholy. Fronted by the always awesome and multi-faceted Adrien Brody, this one should work extremely well for those love a good old fashion creep-out piece.

Synopsis: Psychologist Peter Bower’s life is thrown into turmoil when he discovers a strange secret about his patients. Risking his own sanity, Peter delves into his past to uncover a terrifying secret which only he can put right.

Sci-fi fans are going to see the beauty in Terminus. Personally, I’ve yet to see the film, but I’ve heard more than a single individual praising the flick and early looks work to effectively inject a little excitement in potential viewers.

Synopsis: Following a near-fatal accident, David Chamberlain makes an unprecedented discovery that will not only determine the fate of his family, but of mankind.
