Hey Creepy Catalogers,
One of the most exciting horror movies of the year hits Peacock this Friday (4/14)! Here’s what I’m streaming this weekend:
Cocaine Bear (2023). Streaming on Peacock. Elizabeth Banks directed this comedy horror thriller about — you guessed it — a bear who ingests an enormous amount of cocaine. People who’ve seen it say to expect an oddball comedy with some thrilling moments. Peacock has quickly become my favorite streaming service for its selection of horror movies and reality TV shows, here’s a list of other horror movies currently on the service including M. Night Shyamalan’s latest Knock at the Cabin.
Lights Out (2016). Streaming on Netflix. Netflix added three new horror movies this week. Lights Out is a supernatural horror movie about two siblings who experience something evil in the dark. Also new on Netflix is Phenomena (2023), a Spanish horror movie about three female paranormal investigators whose leader disappears. Qorin (2022) is also new on the service, and is an Indonesian horror movie about students at a boarding school who summon their doppelgängers.
Dead Hot (2022). Streaming on Tubi. Vanessa Hudgens stars in this documentary where she explores the haunted history of Salem. The doc sees Hudgens and GG Magree seeking out mentorship from “experts in witchcraft”.
This week in horror:
- The most anticipated horror movie of 2023, Talk to Me, finally has a trailer.
- Ahead of the Dead Ringers series dropping on Prime Video on April 21, Creepy Catalog explored why the horror genre is so obsessed with twins.
- A dramatic Conjuring series is in development at HBO Max. James Wan is in talks to executive produce. I’m curious about whether the series will dive into the seedier aspects of the Warren’s lives or whether the fictional romance we’ve seen in the Conjuring films will continue to be the focus.
- We talked about the Cube remake.
- Don’t forget to try out the Cocaine Bear video game after you see the movie.
- Other upcoming horror movies.
Happy streaming and stay spooky!!
