EVENT HORIZON (1997)(COVER PHOTO)

This one was on Netflix last year and then, like the ill-fated ship, disappeared without a trace. We are glad to see that this disturbing sci-fi horror is back for all of your streaming pleasure. Many horror fans, myself included, considered EVENT HORIZON to be one of the most haunting they’ve ever seen.

ALMOST MERCY (2015)

This one got some small attention on the indie circuit last year. Focusing on the story of two teens who seem to be inching closer to taking out revenge on their entire school, it is incredibly dark, yet at times a comedy. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the movie! Plus, horror icons Kane Hodder and Bill Mosely make notable appearances.

JURASSIC PARK, THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK, and JURASSIC PARK III

Clever girl! The first three movies of this epic dino-filled franchise are now available. Might as well make a full evening of it!

I AM THOR (2015)

Available on June 19th

Horror fans know Thor as the blonde and buff puffy-haired rocker who starred in the 80s heavy metal classics ZOMBIE NIGHTMARE and ROCK ‘N’ ROLL NIGHTMARE. This is a documentary about him, and it is pretty damn amazing and heartfelt!

VAMPIRE IN BROOKLYN (1995)

This is not many folks’ favorite Wes Craven movie, but it is definitely not his worst. And I have to say it has gotten more amusing and funny with age. Eddie Murphy plays a Caribbean vampire who travels to the States to find a mate to help him continue his vampiric bloodline.

THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI (1920)

THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI arrived a few weeks ago! This is a must for all horror fans. So chilling and beautifully constructed! Revisit this classic which is one of the earliest horror films ever made.

VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER (2016)

This one is a Netflix exclusive, and it is a fantastic reboot of the 80s sci-fi cartoon! Just like in the original, five unlikely protagonists pilot flying robot lions mechas. The updated re-imagining is a tad darker and a lot more complex.
