This streaming platform is a little light on horror content this month. But we highly recommend checking out one of our favorite films from 2017, A Ghost Story. While it’s not officially labeled a horror movie and certainly won’t appeal to those who crave lots of blood and traditional scares, it’s a hauntingly beautiful film with definite horror undertones — exploring the themes of love, loss, and what happens after we die. It’s one of those films that really gets in your head, delivering great psychological horror and making you think deeply about big philosophical questions related to life and death.

  • Zodiac (1/1)
  • Requiem for a Dream (1/1)
  • The Wraith (1/1)
  • The Devil’s Double (1/5)
  • Grimm: Season 6 (1/6)
  • A Ghost Story (1/7)


Besides that essential trip to the theater this month to see Insidious: The Last Key (opening January 5), you’ll definitely want to check out Mom and Dad on VOD this January 19 (also in select theaters). In it, Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair play discontent suburban parents who, like every other mother and father on the planet, suddenly gets the urge to kill their kids in this outrageous black comedy from Crank co-director Brian Taylor.
