OWA Netflix SciFi & Horror Recommendations: June 2016

Thanks to Mother Nature, we in Texas have been experiencing a ridiculous amount of rain lately.  It is both a blessing and a curse because while we need the rain, we have been getting way too much of it in places.  However, courtesy of Netflix, we have a silver lining to being cooped up indoors.  Take a look at all of the SciFi and Horror they have added for June!  It will be tough to decide what to watch!

 

JURASSIC PARK (1993)
Available June 1st

Side note: keep your eye out for 2014 OWA Cthulhie Best Actor award winner Whit Hertford!

This Jurassic tale is told with such a sense of realism that it is both terrifying and inspiring. Can you imagine a world where dinosaurs were scientifically brought back into existence?  The amazing story, coupled with a score by the legendary John Williams, proves this film is always worth a second watching - or 15th.  And if that has not sold you yet: Jeff Goldblum.  


 

THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK (1997)
Available June 1st

They thought all the dinosaurs were eradicated from the first Jurassic Park incident.  However, it turns out there is a second location where dinosaurs are secretly being kept and they are even breeding! Enter: Jeff Goldblum.



 

 

 

JURASSIC PARK III (2001)

VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER - Season 1 (2016)

In order to save the galaxy, five Earth teens battle against the evil alien force led by King Zarkon.  These unlikely heroes unite their robot lions to form the “megapowerful” Voltron.  This American animated Netflix Original is a new original production via DreamWorks Animation.  Seeing that it is voiced by an amazing cast of actors (Steven Yeun, Jeremy Shada, Rhys Darby - to name just a few) this animated series is looking to be something special.


 

MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. - Season 3 (2015)
Available June 16th

The latest season of this action-packed show created for ABC by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen has been added for our enjoyment. I can’t say much about the season for fear of spoiling it for those who have not watched the show before.  However, fear not for those of you not caught up: seasons 1 & 2 are also on Netflix. Cue binge-watching session!


 

THE UNBORN (2009)
Available June 16th

Tortured ghosts haunt a woman causing her to seek help from a spiritual adviser.  Turns out there is an evil spirit that is slowly trying to take possession of her.  Can she fight this curse with Gary Oldman’s help?
