It’s Friday night and you know what that means, it’s time for The Weekend Stream! So without further ado, we present our top Netflix picks for the weekend of 6/26/2015:
- In Bruges – This film is seven years old, so there is a big chance that you have already seen it. But on the off-chance that you have not checked it out, it is a captivating tale of equal parts drama and comedy and should land on any essential viewing list of the last decade.
- Scream – Watch the film that inspired a ton of copycat slasher films in the nineties and most recently the new MTV series.
- The Snowtown Murders – This is an unsettling true story about Australia’s most notorious serial killer. I will warn you that this one is not “scary”, but it is a disturbing film that will stay with you for days.
- Re-Animator – If you haven’t seen this, please drop everything and watch it now! It is a campy cult classic!
- Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer – This one is a doozy of a film. Disturbing and amoral but completely memorable. Michael Rooker steals every scene of this movie as the titular character.
- The House of the Devil – When I first saw this film, it floored me. This slow-paced throwback film put Ti West on the map as one of the most provocative filmmakers in recent history. This man is not afraid of holding a shot until it reaches maximum levels of discomfort.
- V/H/S 2 – The film as a whole is not the best anthology, but there is one vignette in here that is one of the craziest things that I have ever seen. You will know it when you see it.
- Bad Milo – This is a fun little film about a man struggling with severe stress that is only made worse by a demon that pops out of his ass to kill people. And yes, you read that last sentence right.
- Let The Right One In – This film is incredible and even stands the test of repeat viewing. This is a unique take on the classic vampire tale mixed with a dose of young love.
- Disturbing Behavior – This is a fun film that mixes the Stepford Wives with Dawson’s Creek. If you are too young to know either of those references, you might want to pop this one in and get a healthy dose of nineties.
That’s it for now, but make sure to check in next week when we recommend another dose of Netflix to carry you through your weekend.
