Stranger Things lifeguard

Actress Francesca Reale has been cast in a significant recurring role in the third season of Netflix’s sci-fi throwback series Stranger Things (stylized title: Stranger Things 3). Season 3 is set in the summer of 1985, and when the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana head to the pool to escape the summer heat, they’re going to need someone to keep an eye on them. That’s where Reale comes in. Read more about the new Stranger Things lifeguard below. Read More »

(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: In striving to become more theme-driven with our bimonthly streaming choices, Chris and I landed on a “Spring Break” concept for this first offering of May. Sorority girls in bikinis, slashers with a thirst for vacation-crashing, outdoor carnage – Horror 101 type stuff. You’d be correct to assume VOD platforms showcase no shortage of such horrors, and once again, my genre preferences provide a perfect complement/clash with Chris’ reality escapes…with no escape. Start pouring the tequila and slathering on the suntan lotion. Let’s gets sloppy.

Chris: SPRING BREAK!! Let’s all party at the beach! And by “party at the beach”, I mean, stay indoors and watch horror movies, just as god intended. There’s a slight irony to this theme, since “spring” as a season doesn’t really exist anymore – thanks, climate change! Still, the concept of Spring Break offers up the perfect opportunity for characters in films to attempt to get away from it all, only to die horrible deaths. So break out your mirrored sunglasses, pop open a cold one, and enjoy all the untimely death mentioned below.
