Streaming 101: 10 Netflix Summer Slasher Movies to Watch Online

Wolf Creek 2

Verdict: While a bit too gratuitous for my personal taste, the second Wolf Creek film actually showcases some great character exploration before ultimately culminating in a wild and intense showdown in what amounts to Mick Taylor’s murder lair. There’s a major surprise in store for viewers, but the surprise really pales in comparison to the astoundingly graphic gore.

Synopsis: The outback once more becomes a place of horror as another unwitting tourist becomes the prey for crazed, serial-killing pig-hunter Mick Taylor.

Wes Craven’s New Nightmare

Verdict: Wes Craven’s first full blown exploration of the meta concept was far ahead of its time, which is a little ironic when you think about the fact that the movie centers on his greatest fictional character, Freddy Krueger, who’d already been around for a decade at the time of Craven’s new and interesting spin. Some were turned off by the makeup change Freddy received, but in all honesty, the movie is so damn engaging I find myself rarely examining his look. Outside of the first and third, this is most certainly the greatest Nightmare on Elm Street film.

Synopsis: It’s nearing the 10th Anniversary of the film ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ and one of the stars, Heather Langenkamp is being scared by a voice on a phone, sounding very similar to the film’s villain, Freddy Krueger. When Heather’s husband is killed in a car accident and is discovered with slash marks on him, Heather starts to wonder something. Especially when she discovers that Wes Craven is writing another ‘Nightmare’ film. Soon, she realizes that Freddy has now entered the real world, and the only way to defeat him is to become Nancy Thompson once again.
