This is not going to be something that comes out on theaters but only sold at conventions.Netflix has all kinds of obscure stuff, some of which never saw a theater. I'm not saying that Dark Dungeons definitely will wind up on Netflix, but saying that it won't simply because it won't get a theater release is ridiculous.
Do you even have Netflix? Because I did until May, and they show A LOT of Z grade horror movies, including flicks from as far back as the 40's. I mean seriously...I have watched these movies, and I can't imagine Blood Gnomes has a larger budget or better cinematography than Dark Dungeons.
The reason they don't carry some movies or shows is mostly down to rights; not all movie companies or TV networks have agreements with Netflix, and the rights for some shows might be tied up with other channels and places like Amazon Prime or Hulu. Other movies get a limited license deal, after which Netflix doesn't bother to renew.
