My Four Favorite Horror Films On Four Different Streaming Platforms!
What I think your first watch should be when starting your subscriptions!
The Green Inferno
I can just say Eli Roth and surely any lover of gore, cannibalism, and overall just gritty movies would flock to my position. I remember watching this film and just sitting down at the end of it thinking "what the fuck did I just watch", but in a good way.
The story goes as follows... The protagonist wants to save the Amazon, their plane crashes in the Peruvian jungle, then they get captured by the cannibals inhabiting said jungle. And of course, terror ensues.
Roth will make you squirm while watching this one as it's a direct homage to films like 'Cannibal Holocaust' and stirs up just about the same amount of controversy. I had sympathy for these characters. I wasn't just sitting around to watch them die, I actually didn't want them to die!
I love my fair share of horror comedies and this one came as a pleasant surprise when it dropped onto Hulu. We've talked about dogs being victimized in horror films, but get the kids involved and oh man are you at the edge of your seat. Zombie films took off in the 70's, and I say they've had a decent run and I'm pretty full of them, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy these twists.
There was just so much heart watching lead actor and actress Lupita Nyong'o (US, Black Panther) and Alexander England entertain and protect a gang of children trapped during a school field trip during a zombie apocalypse.
Color Out Of Space
I believe I've talked about this one before, but if you haven't, its Nicholas Cage in another horror movie ya'll! This is an adaptation of H.P Lovecraft's short story of the same name. The movie is fun and exciting to watch and will have you recalling movies you've seen in the past like Cabin in the Woods and The Thing. You follow the Gardner family adapting to a new and secluded environment in New England that lifetime inhibitors call, 'the sticks'.
The film is a cool and vibrant plunge into madness with a handful of neat special effects with Cage's over the top acting on top. One of my favorites this year!
The amount of brilliance this film has to offer is far too much for a short paragraph. The film's trailer back when it released was very bright yet terrifying and intrigued me so much that I had to see it in theaters the day it premiered. I love this movie and you can watch it now on Amazon Prime.
You will follow Dani, played by Florence Pugh (Black Widow), as she and her friends travel to a rural town. They then encounter a pagan cult celebrating a Mid-summer festival. Ari Aster is a horror genius and you can watch his other critically acclaimed film on Prime, Hereditary which starred the beloved Toni Collette.
