As you know, content comes and goes on Netflix. Each week, we’re bringing you a list of titles that you’ll be able to stream in the U.S. in the coming days. As always, dates are subject to change.
Daredevil is obviously the big standout this week for a lot of people, but if you like horror movies, it’s a pretty good week for that. The Babadook, which is the most critically acclaimed horror movie of 2014, is also about to be available. So is The Canal, which I personally liked a great deal better and thought was much more effective. If you ask me, it’s one of the best horror movies in recent memory. Don’t let the generic-sounding description fool you. Plus there’s Crank and Good Luck Chuck.
