White "halo effect" on Samsung LED

I've been seeing some white bleed through or halo images when watching tv that Im trying to fix. It's not related to lighting in the room; room was dark. Watching a dark background movie and actors wearing light clothing that it seemed to reflectively halo around them on the screen. Hope this doesn't sound crazy and someone can help.....
Samsung UN65HU8550FXZA
Movie was newer movie in HD on Netflix

My first guess is that the "sharpness" control may be too high. Generally, one doesn't want the TV to do any sharpness enhancement if one is looking for a realistic picture, but that might or might not be 0 on the sharpness control. (On one of my TVs, a "sharpness" below about 30 starts softening the picture, and one doesn't want to artificially soften a picture, either. On the other, 0 is right where no artificial sharpening nor artificial softening occurs.)

If Netflix is an app in the TV or is fed from a separate TV port, adjustments to "sharpness" may be specific to that app or that port, so adjustments, if warranted, should be with that app or that port selected for input.

My very humble setup:
Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray player, Roku N1000 (original model), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (110Mbps/12Mbps).
Bedroom:LG 32LV3400-UA TV (32-in 768p 60Hz LED/LCD), HD DVR (Motorola RNG200N), Xfinity Comcast cable (Digital Preferred Plus), DVD/VHS player.

Did the problem exist for just one movie? Do other movies play ok?

If the problem existed for just one movie or a selected subset of movies, I might be more inclined to suspect the movie instead of the TV, especially if by "newer movie" you mean a new transfer of an old movie. (If the transfer is from film or video stock that had "ringing artifacts" on it, those "ringing artifacts" would be reproduced and would give you the "halos" you noticed.)

The Netflix is an app on TV, so it's same source as "normal" watching. I will look at the sharpness. I think it is something other than 0. The movie was a 2014 movie, so the quality level is there. Thank you for your help! I'll update the post when the sharpness is checked.

Almost sounds like blooming which you may not be able to do much about.

The sharpness is at 25 from a scale of 0-100. I'd like to clean this up if possible. Thoughts?

You are our eyes and ears, unless you want to pay airfare for a bunch of strangers to stop by.

Does the problem occur with more than one Netflix movie? If it is just one movie, what is the title of that movie (and the year of release if Netflix has more than one movie by the title)?

Have you tried Sharpness control while playing the Netflix app adjusted all the way down to zero, and what does that do with the "halo" and how does it really affect the sharpness of the picture?

Have you tried anything else to eliminate the "halos"? If so, what did you try and what effect did it have, if any?

If possible, can you take a couple representative pictures, close-ups preferably, where the "halo" effect is most pronounced and post them?

Without additional information from you, we are basically guessing out of ignorance.

Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray player, Roku N1000 (original model), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (110Mbps/12Mbps).
