Welcome to our new look The Best Things Streaming column where each month we’ll run down the best of what’s hitting your fave streaming channel! This month Amazon is offering up an impressive slate with an Oscar contender, a whole bunch of classic movies, a cult horror musical, a stack of James Bond films, and the eagerly awaited fourth season of The Man in the High Castle.

Anna and the Apocalypse (2018)

Anna and the apocalypse still

This musical horror comedy was a massive hit with critics when it came out last year and hopefully will find an even bigger audience when it hits Amazon later this month. The official description does a brilliant job of hinting at the merry mayhem the film has to offer. “A zombie apocalypse threatens the sleepy town of Little Haven – at Christmas – forcing Anna and her friends to fight, slash and sing their way to survival, facing the undead in a desperate race to reach their loved ones. But they soon discover that no one is safe in this new world, and with civilization falling apart around them, the only people they can truly rely on are each other.”

The Man in the High Castle S4 (2019)

The Man in the High Castle

One of Amazon’s biggest original programming hits, this very loose adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s classic novel centers on a world where the Nazis won World War II. Throughout three seasons the series has imagined this alt-universe version of Earth with the Nazi’s win “leading to the United States being divided into three parts, an area controlled by the Japanese, a Nazi-controlled section, and a buffer zone between the two. Despite the oppression, a new hope emerges when films turn up that seem to show a different world. A woman believes the films contain the key to freedom and is determined to find their mysterious guardian.”

Overlord (2018)
Overlord Adepo

One of the most underrated horror films of the last decade, Overlord was wrongly marketed as a Call of Duty style shoot em up when in reality it was a searing war film with a gut-punch of a horror-soaked twist. The film follows a battalion of soldiers during World War II who end up behind enemy lines and make a horrific discovery. Best watched with as little knowledge as possible but if you really want to know what you’re getting into check out our review. 

Brittany Runs a Marathon

Brittany Runs a Marathon
This feel-good flick has been a smash amongst critics since it hit earlier this year and Amazon is adding it just in time for the Holidays. “Hilarious, outgoing and always up for a good time, New Yorker Brittany Forgler is everybody’s best friend ― except maybe her own. At 27, her hard-partying ways, chronic underemployment, and toxic relationships are catching up with her, but when she stops by a new doctor’s office to try to score some Adderall, she gets slapped with a prescription she never wanted: Get healthy. Too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until her seemingly together neighbor Catherine pushes her to lace up her Converse sneakers and run one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. And soon, after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: running in the New York City Marathon.”
