Calling all horror fans: We have an oldie (but a goodie) that definitely deserves a spot on your rewatch list. 

Red Dragon, the 2002 psychological thriller starring actor Ed Norton, has just been added to Netflix and it already occupies the number seven spot on the streaming service’s top 10 movie list. Following behind on the list: The Thing (2011), Hotel Transylvania (2012) and Diary of a Mad Black Woman (2005). 

In case you didn’t know, Red Dragon serves as a prequel to the 1991 horror classic The Silence of the Lambs and 2001’s Hannibal. Based on the 1981 novel by Thomas Harris, this installment follows an FBI agent named Will Graham (Norton), who seeks the help of the notorious serial killer Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) to catch another killer on the loose named Francis Dolarhyde (Ralph Fiennes). 

Alongside Norton and Hopkins, the film features a talented ensemble cast that includes names like Harvey Keitel, Emily Watson, Mary-Louise Parker and the late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Red Dragon is only the latest of its genre to hit with audiences on Netflix. Back in February, the new psychological thriller, titled The Strays, premiered on the streaming service, and shortly after its release, it quickly climbed to the number one spot on the top 10 list. 

Similar to movies like Get Out and The Strangers, The Strays revolves around a wealthy woman named Neve (played by Ashley Madekwe), who appears to have it all: the perfect house, job and husband. But, that soon changes when two strangers show up at her house and make her life a living nightmare.

Yup, we know what we’re watching tonight: Red Dragon (followed by The Strays).
