PSYCHOTRONIC NETFLIX VOL. 94 – APRIL DUMP!

Yeah, sure, it’s April 1, which means the internet is full of lies (including here at Daily Grindhouse), but I’ll never lie to you about new streaming titles on Netflix!  At least, not to your face.

It’s another big month, with over 100 new and noteworthy titles to streaming, so let’s get to it!  As usual, the titles are organized into questionable sub-groups for little to no convenience.
