Disappear Completely – Netflix

Disappear Completely

Tabloid photographer Santiago (Harold Torres) will go to great lengths to get the perfect shot, tact and morals be damned. His insensitivity even extends to his home life, where he learns his girlfriend Marcela (Teté Espinoza) is pregnant. But his professional ambitions and pessimistic outlook get tested when he snaps photos at a particularly grisly new crime scene; Santiago finds himself afflicted with a curse that’s causing him to lose his senses one by one. Director Luis Javier Henaine captures Santiago’s unraveling with a grim atmosphere and inventive camera work that immerses viewers in Santiago’s race against time before he loses everything. It’s a moody, Satanic cautionary tale centered around an unlikable protagonist.

The First Omen – Hulu

The First Omen, set in 1971, follows American novitiate Margaret Daino (“Servant” star Nell Tiger Free) as she’s sent to Rome to work in an orphanage before she takes the veil. As Margaret adapts to not just her new vocation but an entirely new country and a city in the throes of unrest, she finds herself caught in a fiercely guarded conspiracy involving the birth of the Antichrist that leaves her questioning her faith; and puts her life in the balance. Thanks to the exquisite craftsmanship on display, beguiling Gothic horror, an impeccable cast, and an emotional journey that packs a wallop, The First Omen stands strong on its own. Arkasha Stevenson doesn’t just helm a prequel worthy of Richard Donner’s classic but establishes herself as a bold new voice in horror.

Frogman – SCREAMBOX (June 7)

Popcorn Frights 2023 - Frogman

Director Anthony Cousins takes on the cryptic Frogman via found footage in his feature directorial debut, co-written with John Karsko. In the film, a trio of friends embarks on one final filmmaking hoorah before life takes them in separate directions. But in their bid to make one last attempt to capture the elusive cryptid Frogman on camera, they find far more than they ever bargained for. Frogman adheres to the standard found footage blueprint and tropes, drawing heavily from The Blair Witch Project and Willow Creek as the trio starts by interviewing Loveland, Ohio locals about their town’s cryptid mascot. The more the humans invade the Frogman’s turf, the more delightfully weird and gnarly things get, with Cousins’ debut featuring impressive creature effects. And Frogman happens to have a sequel on the way.

Lovely, Dark, and Deep – Tubi

Lovely, Dark, and Deep

Writer/Director Teresa Sutherland’s (The Wind, “Midnight Mass”) directorial debut applies cosmic horror to a familiar genre setting, the wilderness, to unfurl a twisted, stunningly shot psychological mood piece. It follows Lennon (Barbarian’s Georgina Campbell), the new park ranger filling a coveted, recently vacated position at an isolated outpost. The more she settles into her minimalist outpost and begins her ulterior quest, the more unsettling things become as time derails and bizarre events signal something else is in the woods with her. Much like Robert Frost’s poem that opens the film, Lovely, Dark, and Deep employs lucid dream nightmare logic to spin its vague tale for audiences to infer their own conclusions. It’s a beguiling but lean and elusive slice of cosmic horror.

Stopmotion – Shudder

Stopmotion horror Stopmotion director Robert Morgan 2024 release

The feature directorial debut by BAFTA-nominated filmmaker/animator Robert Morgan finds inventive and creative ways to mine visceral horror through the uncanny, unsettling nature of stop-motion animation and its painstaking process. Ella Blake (The Nightingale‘s Aisling Franciosi) is a talented stop-motion animator who longs to escape the shadow of her mother, Suzanne (Stella Gonet), a reputable legend in the world of stop-motion animation. When Suzanne’s health takes a sharp turn for the worse, Ella’s chance to create her own vision instead sends her spiraling when reality blurs in increasingly disquieting ways. Art and storytelling collide in breathtaking yet revolting fashion in Morgan’s knockout debut.
