Welcome to our The Best Things Streaming column. Each month, we’ll run down the best of what’s hitting your fave streaming channel! As the COVID-19 crisis continues and we all do our best to shelter-in-place, Hulu is delivering a slate of exciting stuff for us all to watch. A highly anticipated biopic of a famed horror author sits alongside a film about a beloved kids’ TV figure. We’re also getting a hard-to-find slasher sequel and a recent horror hit. Basically, there’s plenty of great picks to get you through June!
Look. Maybe this is just us, but we need a few corny slashers right now. I Still Know What You Did Last Summer has long been hard to find on streamers, but that is all changing as it’s coming to Hulu this month, and we couldn’t be more excited. After escaping the hook-wielding fisherman in the first movie Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Freddie Prinze Jr. are back, and they’re joined by Brandy (yay) and Jack Black as a white rasta… (at least he dies).
This hilarious mockumentary focuses on the legendary auteur Werner Herzog as he attempts to hunt down the Loch Ness monster. Honestly, if that doesn’t sell you then I’m not sure what will. Herzog does a great job playing himself here in this hyper-low budget comedy, which is nothing short of a delight. Zak Penn directs and writes this meta-romp that pokes fun at Herzog whilst making us wish that the director really did want to make a movie about Nessie.
This flick about the woman behind some of horror’s most haunting stories is at the top of our to watch list. Check out the official description here:
“Renowned horror writer Shirley Jackson is on the precipice of writing her masterpiece when the arrival of newlyweds upends her meticulous routine and heightens tensions in her already tempestuous relationship with her philandering husband. The middle-aged couple, prone to ruthless barbs and copious afternoon cocktails, begins to toy mercilessly with the naïve young couple at their door.”
We will watch Judy Greer in anything and everything. Luckily for all people of good taste, she is leading the newest entry in Hulu and Blumhouse’s Into the Dark series. When a woman gets an emotional support dog, her life gets infinitely better and less stressful. What she doesn’t know is that this is due to the fact that her dog is killing anyone who stresses her out!
We can’t blame you if you didn’t see Charlie’s Angels in the theater, as the marketing was questionable and the reviews weren’t exactly glowing. But I am here to tell you that this movie is actually good; it’s campy, it’s a little gay, it’s got solid action, and K-stew is incredibly funny and hot. Basically, this is the corny quarantine watch that you need this month! Embrace it!
