Stay Home, Watch Horror: 5 Slashers to Stream This Week

Between the recent Shudder additions of the first three Sleepaway Camp films, The Burning, and the Fourth of July-themed I Know What You Did Last Summer, now seems like the perfect time to binge slashers. Summer tends to serve as the favorite backdrop for slashers anyway, with camps, cabins, and remote vacation spots providing favored slaying grounds for masked maniacs.

So, this week’s streaming picks belong to one of the most beloved subgenres of horror. If you’ve never seen the Sleepaway Camp movies, start there. The first eight Friday the 13th movies are also available on Prime Video. After that, fire up the grill and prep your summery treats, then settle in for these five slasher films that bring the carnage, with a variety of tones and styles.

As always, they’re all available to stream now.


Hush – Netflix

For pure nail-biting intensity, Mike Flanagan proves he knows how to wield suspense like a weapon with Hush. Kate Siegel stars as Maddie, a deaf and mute author that lives alone in the woods. Her reclusive existence is interrupted by the arrival of a masked maniac currently amid a killing spree. A cat and mouse game ensues as Maddie fights to survive. It’s a good old-fashioned horror story elevated by the ingenious use of tension, sound design, and serious thrills. John Gallagher Jr., who typically excels in the nice guy role, plays against type as the chilling killer eager to rack up a body count.


StageFright – Prime Video

Also known as Stage Fright: Aquarius or Deliria, this Italian slasher follows a theater troupe that has locked themselves inside the theater to rehearse for a musical about a fictional mass murderer known as the Night Owl. They’re unaware that an escaped mental patient has crashed the party. Directed by Michele Soavi (The ChurchCemetery Man), this slasher features one of the most visually striking masked killers of all time. It’s gorgeous and stylized, without sacrificing brutal kills. For those in the mood for a classic ‘80s slasher, StageFright scratches that itch and then some.


Stitches – Prime Video

While performing at a children’s birthday party, Stitches the clown attempts to entertain but finds himself the subject of ridicule instead. Then a freak accident claims his life. Six years later, Stitches returns from the grave to exact revenge. This slasher comedy emphasizes splatstick gore. Think Evil Dead 2 levels of gory silliness, with inventive kills suitable for a killer clown. We’re talking balloon animals made out of dismembered members and ice cream sundaes concocted out of brains. The only aim in Stitches is to offer a good time with great kills, and it nails it.


Tourist Trap – Tubi, Shudder

Tourist Trap

This summery slasher sees a group of friends stranded at a secluded roadside museum that’s filled to the brim with creepy mannequins. These mannequins seem to have a life of their own and a lust for blood. Of course, if you’ve seen this cult classic, then you know there’s much more than meets the eye here. The feature debut by director David Schmoeller (Puppet Master) boasts atmosphere for days, and one haunting score by Pino Donaggio. Tourist Trap offers one of the best summer slashers not set at a camp.


Intruder – Tubi

The overnight stock crew of a local grocery store finds themselves falling victim to an unseen killer in this highly infectious late ‘80s slasher. The deaths are delightfully gruesome and inventive; look for this killer to make excellent use of grocery store items as weapons. Look for a stacked cast, too, with notable names like Sam Raimi, Ted Raimi, and Evil Dead II’s Dan Hicks. It’s the perfect film to showcase Hicks’ talent and honor his memory, but it’s also just plain fun. One of the better and underseen slashers of the decade, Intruder also delivers a small cameo by Bruce Campbell. Considering frequent Raimi collaborator Scott Spiegel directed it, the connections to Evil Dead 2 are endless.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
