A horde of mutant crustaceans descend on a small coastal town in this wacky horror comedy. There’s no pretense with Crabs!; it’s abundantly clear upfront exactly what type of movie it is and the entertainment it aims to deliver. This low-brow horror-comedy wears its influences on its sleeves, embracing a Troma-like spirit while saluting and lovingly spoofing beloved cult classics.
Ahead of Netflix’s new series “Gamera: Rebirth” on September 7, the Gamera Collection stomps onto SCREAMBOX on September 4. All 12 films in the giant monster movie franchise are included, from the classic Gamera: The Giant Monster to the influential ’90s reboot, Gamera: Guardian of the Universe, and the latest installment, Gamera the Brave. Instead of one single movie, this option offers up an entire marathon of Kaiju fun.
Godzilla vs. Kong – Tubi
Adam Wingard’s MonsterVerse heavyweight event pits Godzilla against King Kong in a dazzling Kaiju spectacle prone to going long on its human storylines. The rapid pacing makes it all fly by, and the visuals easily make this the best-looking entry yet in the MonsterVerse. Considering a sequel is in the works and Apple TV+ series “Monarch: Legacy of Monsters” is on the near horizon, now feels like a great time to revisit Godzilla vs. Kong.
Juan of the Dead – Prime Video
In this zombie comedy, slacker Juan and company find inventive ways of dealing with the infected. A satire that seamlessly blends life in Cuba with gory humor, Juan of the Dead makes good use of its unlikely heroes. Writer/Director Alejandro Brugués helms a segment in upcoming horror anthology Satanic Hispanics, presenting another reason why you should watch this underappreciated zombie comedy.
The Menu – Hulu
An ensemble of affluent patrons gathers at the exclusive Hawthorne Island for a dining experience run by prestigious Chef Slowik (Ralph Fiennes). The guests soon realize what devious, deadly dishes the Chef intends to serve. The Menu may have gathered a fine cast for this delectable culinary nightmare, but the film belongs to Fiennes. Catch up on this 2022 genre release ahead of Halloween.
Blood Flower – Shudder (September 8)
This Malaysian horror film “tells the story of a 16-year-old apprentice faith healer and exorcist, who is tormented by visions of the dead and spirits from other dimensions. When a malicious spirit begins to wreak havoc around him, the teenaged exorcist is forced to harness his supernatural gifts to save his family and friends.”
El Conde – Netflix (September 15)
Up next from director Pablo Larraín (Spencer) is a stylish vampire comedy inspired by history. “The film portrays Augusto Pinochet, a symbol of world fascism, as a vampire who lives hidden in a ruined mansion in the cold southern tip of the continent. Feeding his appetite for evil to sustain his existence. After two hundred and fifty years of life, Pinochet has decided to stop drinking blood and abandon the privilege of eternal life. He can no longer bear that the world remembers him as a thief.”
Elevator Game – Shudder (September 15)
Rebekah McKendry (Glorious) is playing the Elevator Game with her next horror movie, which spins a fictional tale based on the eerie internet legend. Elevator Game follows socially awkward teenager Ryan, who ingratiates himself into a group of recent high school graduates that run an online web series debunking urban legends. He convinces the group to play the mysterious game, to disastrous results.
No One Will Save You – Hulu (September 22)
Writer/Director Brian Duffield (Spontanteous) is set to unleash floor-to-ceiling aliens in this sci-fi thriller. No One Will Save You introduces Brynn Adams (Kaitlyn Dever), a creative and talented young woman who’s been alienated from her community. Lonely but ever hopeful, Brynn finds solace within the walls of the home where she grew up—until she’s awakened one night by strange noises from decidedly unearthly intruders.
The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster – Shudder (September 22)
Writer/Director Bomani J. Story draws from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, reinterpreting the mad scientist archetype with righteous fury in a contemporary setting. By adolescence, Vicaria (Laya DeLeon Hayes) already knows far more about death than most her age. She’s convinced that death is a disease that must be cured, but she winds up creating an experiment that gets away from her… to lethal results.
