Beneath (2013). Streaming on Screambox. This is a fun bad horror movie about a group of friends who take a rowboat across a lake with the intention to party on a beach. However, one of the friends neglects to tell the others about a beastly, blood-thirsty fish that lives in the lake. The friends end up voting each other off the boat — and into the jaws of the aquatic monster.

Upgrade (2018). Streaming on Netflix. This excellent action sci-fi thriller stars Logan Marshall-Green as Grey, a man who was paralyzed by the same violent crime that ended his wife’s life. A billionaire inventor gives Grey an implant that repairs his ability to walk. With his new superhuman strength, Grey sets out for revenge.
