House (Also available on Shudder CA and UKI) – In this 1986 horror-comedy classic, William Katt is Roger, a horror writer who moves into his aunt’s house after her death. He just wants to write and not to think about his little boy’s disappearance. Then things get crazy.

The Autopsy Of Jane Doe – OK, I am a lifelong horror nerd, and it takes a lot to scare me. This film did. Father and son coroners perform an autopsy on the corpse of an unknown young woman. But, things just aren’t adding up, as the body shows signs that she died recently, while other signs point in the opposite direction.
