Welcome to Horrorscope, a monthly column keeping horror nerds and initiates up to date on all the horror content coming to and leaving your favorite streaming services. Here’s what to watch in November 2022:
A moment of silence for another spooky season over and done with. Luckily, as most horror fans are keenly aware, being a horror fan is a full-time job. And as we pivot into darker and darker days (depending on your hemisphere), the designated movie-watching part grows too. What better way to stave off seasonal depression than some good old-fashioned genre films, right? Cozy up, make some hot apple cider and get ready for another great month of horror fare.
All that said: be sure to peruse the complete list below, calendar in hand, for a full picture of what horror movies are coming and going from your favorite streaming services in November 2022.
Please keep in mind that all dates listed below may not apply to viewers outside the US.
November 2022 Horror Streaming Cheat Sheet
- The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Titans — the show that asks, “what if drag and practical horror makeup effects got in a fender bender? — will have new episodes every Tuesday this month on Shudder;
- I Know What You Did Last Summer, and its 1998 sequel are streaming on Hulu as of the first of the month;
- The Underworld franchise is available in its entirety on Hulu … and for free on Tubi. (The vast majority of the Saw franchise is also hitting Hulu this month). If anyone knows why the Underworld franchise gets passed around like a hot potato every month please let me know! It legitimately keeps me up at night!
- If you want to get in the Christmas spirit early, Shudder has you covered with a good chunk of the Silent Night Deadly Night franchise arriving on the platform on November 1st.
- FYI: The Night House (2020) is leaving HBO Max at the end of the month!
- New-ish releases this month include:
- 2021’s A Banquet (Hulu, Nov. 26); 2022’s R.I.P.D. 2: Rise of the Damned (Netflix, Nov. 15); 2022’s Nope (Peacock, Nov. 18); 2022’s Deep Fear; 2020’s I am Liza; 2022’s Terrifier 2, and 2022’s Vietnamese Horror Story (Screambox, Nov. 1); 2022’s All Jacked Up and Full of Worms (Screambox, Nov. 8); 2022’s Satan’s Slaves: Communion (Shudder, Nov. 4); 2022’s Mandrake (Shudder, Nov. 10); 2022’s Slash/Back (Shudder, Nov. 13); 2020’s Sweetie, You Won’t Believe It (Shudder, Nov. 21), and 2022’s Blood Relatives (Shudder, Nov. 22).
The streaming service champion of the month is Hulu, which had no reason to go so hard this November, but here we are.
The streaming service dunce of the month is repeat-offender Disney+ which continues to disappoint. Big “I hope you’re hungry … for nothing” energy, boys.
Collection Corner: November 2022 Horror Streaming
- ARROW — Jean Rollin Vol. III (as of Nov. 4)
- Includes: Fascination (1979), Lips of Blood (1975), The Grapes of Death (1978), The Night of the Hunted (1980), The Escapees (1981), and Zombie Lake (1981).
- “Deeply misunderstood and widely misrepresented during his decades-long career as a film director (1958-2009), Rollin’s work received absolutely no recognition in his native country of France and was completely unknown anywhere else. In the nineties, because of home video, Rollin attained a marginal cult status in niche English-speaking genre circles. Otherwise, he has remained completely obscure to many audiences” — ARROW.
- “Jean Rollin” is also what some bisexuals do to let each other know they’re queer. I am allotted at least one bad dad joke per month — worth it!
Horror Streaming Highlights for November 2022
Pick of the Month: Terrifier 2
Synopsis: Somehow, Art the Clown returned. Back from this decisive death at the end of Terrifier 1, everyone’s favorite murderous clown returns to end the lives of two innocent teenagers.
As our own Mary Beth McAndrews put it, while 2016’s Terrifier was an … acquired taste (if we’re being generous), there was no denying the star power of Art the Clown. Just look at that face. This evil-ass circus reject was destined for sequel city. And good news: Terrifier 2 is a wild improvement on its predecessor. Boasting creative carnage and more than enough practical gore effects to satisfy your local barbarian, director/special effects artist Damien Leone has certainly upped the ante. Something tells me that we haven’t seen the last of our good friend Art. Also, mad props to Bloody Disgusting (the madmen behind Screambox) for submitting Terrifier 2 for Oscar Consideration. Incredible bit. Five stars.
Available on Screambox November 1
Ho-ho-horrible mutilations abound!
Synopsis: Shudder is adding a whole whack of holiday-themed slashers and genre-fare to its collection. From the zombie-coming-of-age musical Anna and the Apocalypse to a whole smattering of murderous Santas (To All A Good Night and four films from the Silent Night Deadly Night franchise), Shudder is decking the halls this November, and we’re here for it.
Listen. If I see any holiday-themed garbage at the grocery store or the pharmacy in October, I turn into a supervillain. Get that shit out of here. October is the designated spooky season. That said. As soon as November hits, it’s a different story. And Shudder is here to get you in the right mood. If you find that you’re blood pressure is being tested by the encroaching festive spirit — reclaim it! Don’t let the end of Halloween get you down; tilt your head the right way, and Christmas can have a horror bent to it. And it’s got a knife! Oh no!
Available on Shudder November 1
A weekend of Godzilla movies hosted by John Carpenter
Synopsis: Join the Horror Master himself, John Carpenter, for a weekend of movies by the great Ishirō Honda. Celebrate Godzilla Day the right way by tuning in for Carpenter’s presentation of four kaiju classics: Gojira, The Uncut Japanese Original; Rodan; Ghidorah, The Three-Headed Monster; and The War of the Gargantuas.
Join the coolest cat in horror for a weekend watch party of big monsters wreaking carnage on anyone foolish enough to get in their way. There’s so much to enjoy: from the goofy cult-classic delights of The War of the Gargantuas to the metaphor-rich 1954 original that introduced audiences to the man, uh, lizard of the hour. If you’ve ever wanted to get into the Godzilla franchise but needed a push, let the always-iconic John Carpenter be your guide.
Available on Shout Factory TV November 3-6 from 6 pm PT/9 pm ET. Check out the announcement video for details on what’s playing when (and where to watch it).
Boy howdy, that sure is a lot of worms.
Synopsis: Roscoe, a janitor at a dingy love motel, isn’t having the best go of things. Luckily, a chance encounter with a local weirdo named Benny introduces Roscoe to the new, hottest drug: worms! While Roscoe struggles with his driftless significance and Benny attempts to manifest a child via a sex doll, the duo finds themselves on a bad trip full of murder, soul-searching, worms … more worms.
Oozing onto the small screen, put your lack of hands together for All Jacked Up and Full of Worms, easily the best-named film of 2022. If the phrase “hallucinogenic horror-comedy” piques your interest, consider checking out the film that Fantasia programmer Celia Pouzet described as “Trainspotting meets Brain Damage with a dash of Videodrome.” Patently bananas and strangely bittersweet, All Jacked Up and Full of Worms is one hell of a midnight movie. Come for the worms. Stay for the worms.
