Five 2021 Horror Movies You Can Stream This Week

Thanks to the endless selection available at our fingertips, it’s becoming harder and harder to keep up with releases. Especially when it comes to the volume of streaming services, which quietly drop new release titles regularly onto their platforms. This week’s streaming picks are dedicated to recent 2021 horror movies that are now available on streaming.

Here’s where you can watch them this week!

The Deep House – Hulu, Paramount+

Urban explorer Ben (James Jagger) drags his girlfriend Tina (Camille Rowe) along on his latest adventure seeking a legendary house preserved at the bottom of a lake. They find it with assistance from a local but also find themselves racing against the clock when they become trapped inside. Oxygen levels aren’t the only problem; the underwater house is haunted. Inside directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury’s latest may not get that deep in terms of narrative, but their commitment to going practical makes for one eerie, atmospheric, and exhilarating new twist to the haunted house. It’s spooky and otherworldly.

Malignant – HBO Max

Channeling the spectacle of late ’90s Dark Castle, the opening sequence sets up an outlandish plot that feels lifted from the ’90s both in tone and bloodletting, signaling a wild ride ahead where you’re on its outrageous wavelength, or you’re not. It’s a relentlessly entertaining riot, from the prison cell massacre featuring a mullet-wearing ZoĆ« Bell to Maddie Hasson’s doe-eyed line delivery of “You’re adopted?!” Director James Wan and screenwriter Akela Cooper delivered a breath of fresh air, and the movie’s wild reception also solidifies its spot here. If you’ve already caught up with this one more than once, the much more dour creature feature Antlers is also available on HBO Max.

The Boy Behind the Door – Shudder

Two young friends fight to escape their kidnappers in this white-knuckle ride, one of the best 2021 horror movies of them all. Filmmakers David Charbonier and Justin Powell plunge straight into the heart of evil for their unrelentingly suspenseful thriller that fearlessly pushes boundaries. They know how to block a scene and use sound design to maximize suspense and how to keep applying the pressure at a steady clip. It’s a taut thriller, made even bolder by the hero’s age. Lonnie Chavis carries a lot on his young shoulders throughout, made even more impressive by the dark subject matter. The intense thriller tosses the home invasion concept on its head while leaving you at the edge of your seat and breathless.

Blood Red Sky – Netflix

Nadja (Peri Baumeister) and her ten-year-old son, Elias (Carl Anton Koch), board a flight from Germany to New York. She’s very ill and hopes the doctor in New York can cure her illness with an experimental transfusion. Violent terrorists hijack the flight straight away, putting their lives at risk. When a particularly sadistic terrorist causes harm, it unleashes Nadja’s inner monster. A beating heart of familial love pumps through the veins of this intense horror-thriller with a vicious take on vampire lore. High-altitude thrills bring intensity, while character development and pathos instill rooting interest. It makes for a compelling action horror movie.

Titane – Hulu

Once again, Julia Ducournau finds unique, transgressive ways to use body horror that trigger instant revulsion yet garner instant empathy. Alexia is an anti-heroine, borderline sociopathic, and thoroughly magnetic, thanks to her shocking acts. Alexia’s serial killer instincts evolve into something else as she finds a bizarre father figure as broken as she is. Titane throws everything at its audience in an aggressive style. Visceral, cringe-worthy violence, tenderness, and even more bizarre sexual encounters. Ducournau makes all of it, visually and narratively, remarkably coherent. It’s anchored by a pair of leads who are fully committed to their oddly charming yet profoundly flawed characters.
