If independent horror films interest you, Indiewire wrote about eight different indies here that are now available on demand, just in time for Halloween. At the top of the list, The Babadook releases on DirecTV today before opening in theatres in November. The very scary movie won prizes at Fantastic Fest last month for its successful mash-up of haunted house and woman-going-insane premises. And Django Unchained became available on Netflix this week. Check out our review here before committing your spookiest evening to a “quintessential Tarantino.”
(Wondering about horror films? We interviewed Deliver Us From Evil and Sinister director Scott Derrickson not once, but twice about his faith and his work as one of Hollywood's most successful horror filmmakers.)
If you’re looking for a lighter way to pass the weekend, you can catch 22 Jump Street on Amazon Prime and catch our review here. Or get an early Netflix start on the Christmas season with The Christmas Candle, based on the Max Lucado book (our review here).
And if you haven’t picked your November binge-watch, check out this list of new shows coming to Netflix here—including additional episodes of Portlandia and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
