Best Streaming Horror Movies

(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 to Now Scream This, your one-stop shop for streaming horror recommendations. The haze of summer swelter is upon us, and for those days where air conditioner breezes better combat Mr. Sun’s rays, we’ve got some cool-down entertainment picks. If you’re like me, you can only watch Joe Dante’s Piranha and Alexandre Aja’s Piranha 3D on repeat so many times to celebrate the splashy-savage horror season. Let’s see what nightmares await this week?

Chris: Matt and I are back with more horror recommendations for you, dear reader. This week’s efforts are theme-less, but that doesn’t mean they’re not worth checking out. We like themes to keep things fun and fresh around here, but we also like to step back and just rattle off a list of great horror movies that may have slipped through your fingers, especially if you’re the type of person in the market for something scary to watch, right now. Thankfully, we’re here to help! You’re welcome.

(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: With the impending continuation of the Saw franchise only days away, Chris and I are highlighting twists and murderous mysteries within horror’s imprisonment. You’ll hear things like “reminiscent of Clue” or “out of left field,” because what is horror without suspense? A horror comedy. Alright. BUT STILL. Horror hinged on whodunit intrigue sustains the cat-and-mouse chase of unidentifiable slashers or creatures of unknown origins. Maybe, just maybe, you’ll glimpse a hybrid of Murder On The Orient Express and A Nightmare On Elm Street. Keep me guessing, keep me happy!

Chris: What a twist! Now Scream This is back with some horror movies with big twists to pay tribute to Saw, since, as I’m sure you know, Spiral: From the Book of Saw is about to open and unleash all new twists and turns. I tried not to be too obvious with my picks – The Sixth Sense is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video, but c’mon, you know that one already. Anyway, since we’re dealing with twist movies here, I’ll try not to be too spoilery. But I can make no promises.

(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: Holy buckets, it’s time for another Now Scream This column? If Chris didn’t send a reminder, I’d still think we posted the last one a few hours ago. What is time? How is life? Can I just see King Shark in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad already? Speaking of (typing of?) King Shark, we thought it’d be fun to honor Godzilla and King Kong this week with streaming monster selections. Maybe not to size, but still just as monstrous (by our definitions).

Chris: It’s Godzilla vs. Kong time, which gives Now Scream This an excuse to highlight some fun monster flicks that you can stream right now. We played fast and loose with the rules here – the movies we picked didn’t require gigantic, kaiju-sized monsters – just monsters in general. You may think that’s a cop-out, but buddy, let me tell you: writing these columns ain’t easy. Just go with it.

The day of the Academy Awards nominations is a day of celebration for Hollywood. It’s also a day of rage and annoyance, as entertainment writers remind themselves and others that “Oscar nominations don’t mean that much.” And yet it’s also a day of surprise and joy, as those same entertainment writers remind themselves and others that “Oh yeah, occasionally the Oscar nominations really get it right!”

As is tradition around these parts, we’ve rounded up this year’s biggest Oscar surprises and snubs. Here are the nods that made us fist-pump with joy and the snubs that made us want to punch our walls.

2021 Oscar Nominations

The nominations for the 93rd annual Academy Awards have announced, revealing which films will contend to take home little golden statuettes for one of the strangest years in cinema history. While the COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on movie theaters and the film industry, you know the saying: the show must go on. And due to rules tweaks that allow for more eligibility (we’re looking at you, streaming releases), the results look unlike many other Oscar line-ups. But is that for better or worse? We’ll let you be the judge.

justice league teaser batman

In less than two weeks, hungry fans will finally feed from the trough of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the long-awaited “Snyder Cut” that will either prove once and for all that Zack Snyder’s preferred version of Justice League was superior, or that no version of this film is particularly good. However the film turns out, one thing is certain: Snyder knows exactly how to use social media to his advantage. He’s been doling out bits and pieces of his new cut for a while now, and as we enter the home stretch, the filmmaker has released new character teasers devoted to Ben Affleck‘s Batman, Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman, Ezra Miller‘s The Flash, and Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman. More character-centric teasers are sure to come, so gird your loins!

(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: Since this is a streaming horror column, it’s hard not to tumble into a Shudder recommendation pattern. There have been times where “Now Scream This” favored mainstream streamers or even free streamers, but I took it upon myself to explore another Tubi appreciation entry. Quietly, without paywalls, Tubi continues to amass a collection of horror titles that rivals, or in some cases overshadows  the competition thanks to a vastly more expansive and eclectic catalog. We’re here to expand your horizons, whether that’s selections or providers. Not every “What to watch?” answer can be found on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.

Chris: Matt did not make me aware of his plan to include only Tubi movies for his choices, so I’m caught off guard here! Had he told me, I might’ve said, “Tubi, or not Tubi?” But seriously, folks, while Matt’s picks this week have some sort of loose theme (they’re all on Tubi!), mine do not. I guess it’s because I’m such a rebel; a bad boy, if you will. And I guess that means Matt is a square. That’s how it goes, daddy-o! Now excuse me while I hop onto my motorcycle and ride on down to the juke joint for an egg cream.

Matt: I hope, I presume, you’ve clicked into another edition of “Now Scream This” searching for the latest and greatest streaming horror recommendations. If not? Well, can Chris and I interest you in viewable-this-second selections with thrills, chills, and copious amounts of gore? Maybe we should have played into Valentine’s Day with lovey-dangerous titles, but instead, we’ve turned our attention to newfound favorites you can discover alongside your partner. Pop the bubbly, de-thorn the roses, and scream the night away (wink wink). Hell, even take that trip to Indonesia you’ve been discussing without leaving your couch!

Chris: Matt and I have returned from the horror movie mines with some gems just for you, loyal reader! We’ve worked tirelessly to find you the best of the best of streaming horror, and the least you could do is read what we wrote below. And also maybe send us an Edible Arrangement or something like that.

(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: Happy New Year, I guess? As the calendar turned from 2020 to 2021, we all thought, “How could it possibly get worse?” Then Donald Trump encouraged and incited a coup at Capitol Hill, the day that I’m writing about which horror movies are making my resolution list. I don’t know what to do with a lot of the words in that sentence or how they fit together, but sure, here are a few streaming horror films that have been on my radar for far too long that I intend to finally watch this year. Who knows? If there’s not another tyrannical outburst tomorrow, where domestic terrorists are treated like fifth graders who don’t even need a time out, maybe I’ll muster the motivation to avoid doomscrolling into the void and watch something. Here we go again!

Chris: Well, we’re now in 2021, and things are, uh…you know what? Forget it. Just gonna move on. As Matt said above, the latest edition of Now Scream This is all about our “New Year’s resolution” films – horror movies we’ve been meaning to watch but haven’t gotten around to yet. I’m taking things a bit further with my selections: all the titles I list are movies I actually started watching in 2020 but never got around to finishing, for one reason or another – and I vow to finally finish them in 2021. Happy New Year!

The 50 Greatest Movie Moments of 2020

Best Movie Moments of 2020

Every year, the /Film team gathers to do what all websites must: make a big list about the previous year in cinema. And while 2020 offered its fair share of numbing, painful roadblocks, the movies were as good as ever, even as we watched them at home instead of at a movie theater. So compiling a list of the 50 Greatest Movie Moments of 2020 was hard not because there weren’t any great moments, but because there were so many.

Here are our favorite moments – shots, scenes, lines of dialogue, gags, asides, action scenes, you name it – from the movies of 2020.
