Here are the movies and shows that should be on your radar this weekend (5/31):

The First Omen (2024). Streaming on Hulu. This prequel to the Omen films is surprisingly good. It follows an American woman who travels to Rome to work as a novitiate in the Catholic Church. There, she discovers an unholy conspiracy to engineer the birth of the Antichrist.

Stopmotion (2024). Streaming on Shudder. A stop-motion animator unravels after the death of her domineering mother. This is one of our top 10 horror movies of 2024 (so far)

Dark Matter (2024-). Streaming on Apple TV+. This sci-fi thriller series has five episodes out and four more to come in June. Joel Edgerton stars as a man who is abducted one night and wakes up in an alternate version of his life. He suspects that his abductor was an alternate version of himself who seeks to steal his life.

Lumberjack the Monster (2023). Streaming on Netflix (as of Saturday, June 1). An action horror movie directed by Takashi Miike. A serial killer in a monster mask targets not an innocent victim, but a psychopath lawyer. The lawyer survives and becomes obsessed with getting revenge on the masked man as the police also search for the identity of the “monster”.

The Skin I Live In (2011). Streaming on Max (as of Saturday, June 1). This excellent Spanish thriller stars Antonio Banderas as a plastic surgeon who is developing artificial skin. He illegally tests his synthetic skin on a woman he holds hostage at his secluded estate.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021). Streaming on Netflix (as of Saturday, June 1). This isn’t our favorite Conjuring sequel, but the real life story it fictionalizes is pretty interesting. In the 80s the Glatzel family moved into a haunted house and the youngest son was later given an exorcism at the request of Ed and Lorraine Warren. The Warrens believe the demon then moved on to a family friend who was present at the exorcism, Arne Johnson. Johnson went on to stab his landlord 22 times and his criminal trial was the first instance in which a “the devil made me do it” defense was used.

Tiger House (2015). Streaming on Prime Video. This home invasion thriller tells the story of a teenage girl, Kelly (Kaya Scodelario) who sneaks into her wealthy boyfriend’s house just before masked intruders attack the family and hold them hostage. Luckily, Kelly is a gymnast and can use her athletic skills to try and save the family. It’s a fun twist on the home invasion subgenre.
