Hey Creepy Catalogers,
It’s the perfect time to catch up on the best horror movies and shows from 2021. Here are our favs from the past year and where they are streaming this weekend:
Titane. Available to rent on Amazon. Part body horror, part crime thriller, part family drama, this film is toping most horror fans “best of 2021” lists. Titane is a film about Alexia, a woman who had a titanium plate implanted in her skull as a child after a car accident involving her father. She grew up to be a troubled woman who has issues connecting with people, especially her parents.
Midnight Mass. Streaming on Netflix. This miniseries from the creator of The Haunting of Hill House Netflix series, Mike Flanagan, was my personal favorite horror of the year. While it starts slow, Midnight Mass evokes memories of the very best Stephen King miniseries like Salem’s Lot and Storm of the Century.
The Power. Streaming on Shudder. I absolutely LOVED this period horror film about a trainee nurse working in a nearly empty London hospital during a power outage caused by a local miner’s strike. It’s a normal suspenseful horror movie but without giving too much away it also touches on trauma and abuse in a realistic, smart and compelling way.
