Bad Relationship 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: We’re still stuck in February so that means Chris and I are still writing about relationship horror! This time, in honor of Leigh Whannell’s The Invisible Man, we have disastrous relationships in horror. The ones that make us shiver, our stomachs churn, and warp memories of “evil exes” into infinitely fonder daydreams. Love can be a savior, and love can be a monster. These picks we have lined up appeal more to the latter’s demeanor.

Chris: The Invisible Man is a timely tale of a woman being gaslit by her abusive boyfriend. But Leigh Whannell’s fantastic flick isn’t the first film to explore this storyline. So if you’re in the mood for more terrible relationship movies, Matt and I have put our heads together to bring you some that are streaming right now. Right this very second. Go watch them!

(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: Looking back, this week’s “Now Scream This” theme should have recognized my impending up-and-move from New York City to Los Angeles. Maybe travel horrors? Something about midlife crisis horror? My life is a certifiable *mess* right now, so Chris was gracious enough to waive any thematic parameters beyond, “Hey, watch these movies!” All streaming, all accessible, all coming with our seals of approval. I think cross-country relocation grants me a pass.

Chris: While we don’t really have a theme this week, I went ahead and added three films with one connection: Rutger Hauer. The actor died recently, and I thought it was important to pay tribute to his weird, impressive career by highlighting three of his very different horror films. Then there are two other movies after that, because I have a quota to fill, folks.

Killer Animal 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: With Crawl in theaters, Chris and I have an easy thematic narrative this week: When Animals Attack! Who doesn’t love a right turning of the tides when Mother Nature’s kingdom punishes humanity? Maybe it’s primates, possibly reptiles, sometimes insects – in any case, our picks could populate the most horrific zoo exhibition imaginable. Perhaps you’ll think twice about that up-close-and-personal safari vacation you’ve been planning?

Chris: Crawl is now in theaters, and The Lion King opens this week. So what better way to celebrate these films loaded with CGI animals than by highlighting horror movies where animals attack? This week, Matt & I sing the praises of movies all about beasts who’ve had enough of human beings and their bullshit.
