Best Horror Movies Streaming

(Welcome to Now Scream This, a column where horror experts Chris Evangelista and Matt Donato tell you what scary, spooky, and spine-tingling movies are streaming and where you can watch them.)

Matt: Welcome back, screamers and streamers! This week, for absolutely no other reason than morbid curiosity, I challenged myself to mine five underrated found footage nuggets. Not obvious titles like Paranormal Activity, either. I’d venture to bet there’s one or two entries listed below that you either A) haven’t heard of B) have sitting in a digital queue somewhere. French slasher hybrids and Japanese ghost stories about aborted fetuses and stuff. Same old, same old in the genre world.

Chris: While Matt is focusing on found footage for this installment, I’m turning towards films about deranged killers. That’s a pretty broad topic, I know, but I’ve also limited the choices to films that are supernatural-free. These killers are grounded in reality, which makes their actions extra unsettling. You can’t shrug the acts in these films off as something influenced by otherworldly forces. They are instead committed by seemingly normal individuals engaging in abnormal deeds.

If you follow filmmakers and film critics on social media, you’ve probably already encountered the #FilmStruck4. Initiated by Filmstruck, the streaming service dedicated to classic and arthouse films, the hashtag challenges you to pick the four films that “define” you. And now everyone is chiming in.

So the /Film staff decided to participate as well, but do so on a slightly larger scale. We have all come together to share the four movies that “define” us. Specifically, we’re sharing the four movies that define our taste and love of cinema, not necessarily our favorite movies of all time (we’ve got that covered elsewhere).

What four films define you? Definitely chime in with a comment after you check out our selections!

(Welcome to Now Scream This, a column where horror experts Chris Evangelista and Matt Donato tell you what scary, spooky, and spine-tingling movies are streaming and where you can watch them.)

Matt: For this first edition of “Now Scream This,” I thought it important for Chris and myself to give y’all a sense of who we are as horror fans. One a child of refined genre elegance, and the other – me – the guy who’s about to demand you watch Detention. These films are tethered to our streaming catalogs for rewatches on rainy, dull or any flippin’ day because everyone has their favorites. A gift to you from our most malevolent heart of hearts, curated with love and our deepest desire to entertain, torture and scare each one of you silly. How better to introduce ourselves as your harbingers of cinematic damnation?

Chris: I’m very excited about this column, because based on this inaugural entry, you’re in for a wide-variety of great horror, reader. In a sense, this also proves how malleable the horror genre is. It doesn’t fit neatly into one specific package, but changed, and evolves, and bends its shape to whatever the story needs it to be. Horror, like comedy, is subjective – what’s scary to one person might be laugh-inducing to another. Yet with this column, we hope to provide you with a wide-ranging list of great horror, ready to stream at a moment’s notice.

With “A Fool’s Hope” and the two-part “Family Reunion and Farewell,” Star Wars Rebels has finally come to a close. Though fans were understandably disappointed when executive producer Dave Filoni announced that season 4 would be the last, this decision allowed Filoni and his creative team to end the beloved, game-changing series on their own terms. Indeed, this past season of Star Wars Rebels has pulled out all the stops when it comes to the more mysterious elements of Star Wars lore. But it has also stayed true to the show’s main characters: Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren, Kanan Jarrus, Hera Syndulla, and the entirety of the Ghost crew.

The three-episode finale brought back a whole host of familiar faces and sent others into space for some new and enticing adventures. There were Loth-wolves. There were temptations to the Dark Side. And there was a spine-tingling time jump. The Star Wars Rebels series finale may not have been the flashiest episode of the show, but it tied up several themes and storylines in a tight little bow…while giving us hope for a whole new series of adventures.

/Film’s resident Star Wars experts, Allyson Gronowitz and Rosie Knight, sat down to talk about the Rebels finale, its grand reveals, and how the overall series impacts the Star Wars universe and fandom. Naturally, major spoilers follow.
