Horror Streaming Highlights for February 2022

Pick of the Month: Joe Bob’s Heartbreak Trailer Park – New Valentine’s Day Special

Joe Bob's Heartbreak Trailer Park

Synopsis: Everyone’s favorite Lone Star-sipping horror host is back with a live Valentine’s day special of ghoulish delights. So grab your beverage of choice, some generously iced sugar cookies, and snuggle up for a cozy stay-at-home showing of ooky spooky cinema.

Look, we were big fans of Shudder’s The Last Drive-In before the pandemic hit. And as the Omicron variant continues to force many of us to retreat indoors (the nor’easters and freezing February rain aren’t helping!), anything that makes a night on the couch feel a little more special is worth getting excited about. In last year’s Valentine’s Day special, Joe Bob Briggs and Darcy the Mail Girl (Diana Prince) showcased two twisted love stories: 1994’s Tammy and the T-Rex and 2016’s The Love Witch. As of publishing, this year’s double feature is still under wraps. But with four special guests and the promise of “two movies about deranged passion” and more than enough films to fit the bill, we’re itching to see what Shudder’s resident cowboy has in store.

Streams on Shudder TV Friday, February 11th. 

The most romantic movie of all time (that also has a scene where Jeff Goldblum’s jaw sloughs off)

The Fly

Synopsis: it’s a tale as old as time: Boy meets girl. Boy seduces girl by showing girl his teleportation pods. Boy gets jealous when girl appears to have feelings for her coworker. Boy gets drunk and decides to test his teleporter on himself. Boy accidentally splices his DNA with a tiny, buzzing stowaway, with progressively gruesome results.

Arguably the most mainstream entry in David Cronenberg’s horror output, The Fly is hard and fast proof that remakes can be good, actually. The 1980s saw a boom of goo-coated remakes of 1950s B-movies (including The ThingThe Blob, and Cat People). But, unlike its peers and despite the odds, The Fly was met with critical acclaim (and an Academy Award, no less). Cronenberg’s big mainstream break (which, and I cannot stress this enough, is also one of the grossest films ever made) is one of the most romantic films ever made: a heartbreaking portrait of love’s ability to endure in the shadow of illness and decay. If you want to watch something schmaltzy that also features corrosive spit and nail peeling, Cronenberg has got you covered.

Available on Prime Video on February 1st

It’s the end of the world as we know it. But Harry Belafonte is here to save us

The World The Flesh And The Devil streaming horror February 2022

Synopsis: When miner Ralph Burton finally drags himself back to the surface, he realizes that the cave-in he experienced wasn’t an isolated incident. While he was trapped underground, a nuclear holocaust wiped out all of humanity. Finding New York City deserted, Ralph’s assumption that he’s the last man on earth is shaken when he meets Sarah, another survivor. Their close friendship is disturbed by the arrival of another survivor, Benson Thacker, a racist who takes issue with Ralph’s Blackness. 

February is Black History Month, and there are a good handful of genre offerings arriving to streaming services this month featuring Black leads (Queen of the Damned hive, rise up!). But with a title like The World, The Flesh and the Devilwho could resist? Directed by Ranald MacDougall and released in 1959, the film is a part of Criterion Channel’s new collection “Starring Harry Belafonte,” a celebration of the trailblazing Jamaican-American singer, screen star, and activist. The collection features highlights from Belafonte’s career: Bright Road (1953), Odds Against Tomorrow (1959), The Angel Levine (1970), Uptown Saturday Night (1974), Beat Street (1984), and Kansas City (1996).

With the enviable vibe of a lost Twilight Zone episode by way of Richard Matheson, The World, The Flesh and the Devil is a marvelous and under-seen example of post-apocalyptic genre fare. Anxiety-riddled and unafraid to tackle its thematic bugaboos head-on, MacDougall’s movie is an unmissable watch this month and an incredible introduction to Belafonte’s incredible screen presence.

Available on The Criterion Channel on February 1st.

A lovey-dovey collection (featuring monsters, murders, and zombies — oh my!)

Zombies For Sale streaming horror February 2022

Synopsis: Arriving on ARROW this month, the “Curse of True Love” collection promises to do what it says on the tin (of chocolates, presumably). Horror lovers can be starry-eyed romantics too! And just because a film has guts, gore, and gruesome kills doesn’t mean they can’t be genuinely stirring and sweet. So snuggle on up and enjoy this smattering of spooky schmultz.

Whether you’re flying solo or have a partner in crime, if you’re staying at home this Valentine’s Day consider checking out ARROW’s offering of romanticly inclined genre offerings. The collection brings together five titles from the streaming service’s library: A Ghost Waits (2020), which tells of a man who falls in love with the ghost he’s been tasked with exorcising; Zombie for Sale (2019), a Korean-language film about a pharmaceutical company that accidentally creates a zombie; Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Manon (1949), a doomed WWII romance; Marty Loves Katie (2017) a comedic short film about old wounds and The Love of a Woman (1953), the dramatic final film of Jean Grémillon.

Available on ARROW on February 14th.
