4 Days of Blood: Part IV – Ghoulish Netflix Instant Recommendations


Seeing as Halloween is now upon us and I’ve committed myself to writing four “Days of Blood” posts, I figured I would devote the fourth and final post to some of the better (and more recent) horror and horror-adjacent titles available to stream on Netflix. Hopefully it will make up for the way I’ve been neglecting my Streaming Saturday recommendations this month.

Before I get started, though, I want to thank everyone for indulging me as I let my horror fandom take control of the blog and the podcast. I’d also like to thank my friends Mike (@IAmMikeWhite) and Tiny (@ObsessiveTiny) for contributing so much content this month. I’d also like to thank my friend Pat (@Patty_Kuhn) for joining us on the Zombie episode of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast.

Finally, I would like to thank John Dugan from The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974), Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (1994) and Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013) for letting us interview him on the podcast. We had such a great time talking to him and can’t thank him enough. If you’re ever at a convention and have a chance to meet him, I highly recommend it.

So let’s get to the list, shall we? It’s Halloween, so here are some streaming recommendations to make the holiday even better. Continue reading

Streaming Saturday: Saturday Night Live (1975-Present)


Last week my PS3 died a hero’s death. In the end, it went out doing what it did best, streaming Netflix so I wouldn’t have to eat my Honey Bunches of Oats in silence. As a result, I streamed Netflix on my laptop set up on a TV tray at the foot of my bed.

With this set up, I found myself watching some things I don’t normally stream, namely some episodes of Saturday Night Live from the middle of the 1990s. When I was a kid, I used to love watching SNL. I hadn’t noticed just how much of SNL was on Netflix.

So for this week’s Streaming Saturday, I decided to do something a little different. Below I’ve compiled a list of all the SNL-related titles available for streaming. It’s worth noting that the decade collections don’t have the full episodes. The musical performances are missing and many episodes have sketches cut out.

Check out the list below and don’t forget to follow me on Twitter @ObsessiveViewer, like the blog on Facebook and check out The Obsessive Viewer Podcast. Continue reading

The Month in Movies: June 2013

I had a pretty good June as far as movie-watching is concerned. I didn’t break any records (2008 – 25 viewings) but I did triple my numbers from last year’s paltry 6 viewings. I made good progress in my Bond set and managed some memorable theater viewings. All in all not a bad month. You can see the full chronological list of my June viewings here. Continue reading
