SCREAMBOX has a great lineup for us in August, plus a great sale for new subscribers. Read on for more info about the new subscriber special, but take a look at the August schedule first!
SCREAMBOX Exclusive Ghastly Brothers is available to stream right now. This Dutch horror comedy has a nostalgic feel to it, and is being compared to “gateway horror” films like Beetlejuice, Goosebumps and Ghostbusters.
Starting August 8, the SCREAMBOX Exclusive Who Done It: The Clue Documentary can be watched and enjoyed. The doc revisits the 1985 film as cast and crew members tell their own stories. Contributors include Michael McKean, Lesley Ann Warren, Colleen Camp, Lee Ving, Jonathan Lynn and Jeffrey Kramer.
August 22 brings SCREAMBOX Original Subject, an Australian found footage film that tells the story of government experimentation of a strange creature.
On August 29, subscribers can watch the first episode of SCREAMBOX Original four-part series RoboDoc: The Creation of RoboCop. This one is brought to us by the team who created Hollywood Dreams & Nightmares: The Robert Englund Story, and includes commentary from Paul Verhoeven, Nancy Allen, Peter Weller and Ray Wise.
Other films coming to SCREAMBOX in August include:
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre – One of the most intense (yet oddly gore-less) horror films of them all will be available to stream in all of its gritty glory, right on time for those planning to play the new video game.
Starry Eyes – One of Mike Flanagan’s favorite actresses is Alex Esoe, featured in this body-horror film about a wannabe starlet who discovers that the price of fame is higher than she imagined.
The Woman – Lucky McKee (May, All Cheerleaders Die) directed and co-wrote this adaptation of Jack Ketchum’s novel. Pollyanna McIntosh plays a wild, cannibalistic woman who is captured and restrained by a lawyer. When he attempts to “civilize” her through torture, the tables are soon turned.
The Innkeepers – Brought to us by Ti West (The House of the Devil, X), this is a ghost story that somehow manages to alternate between lighthearted and creepy, with a dash of genuine horror towards the end. On the last week of operation for the historic Yankee Pedlar Inn, two night clerks conduct their own paranormal investigation.
Chopping Mall – This 1980s flick stars Kelly Maroney and Barbara Crampton as teens trapped in a shopping mall after closing when the security robots go homicidally haywire. If you consider yourself a fan or 80s horror and haven’t seen this one, this is your chance to remedy that.
Witchboard – College student Linda (Tawny Kitaen) makes the mistake of playing with her friend’s Ouija board while all alone, and it doesn’t go well. This is another 1980s classic, so pair it up with Chopping Mall for maximum entertainment.
Hatchet II / Hatchet III / Victor Crowley – These three sequel to over-the-top gory film Hatchet further the story of Victor Crowley, a hideously deformed maniac who lives in a Louisiana swamp. Crowley is fond of killing people in vicious and creative ways. The three films star horror icons such as Danielle Harris, Tony Todd, Caroline Williams and Kane Hodder (who plays Crowley).
Magic – 1978’s Magic, starring Anthony Hopkins, is responsible for one of the creepiest film trailers to ever grace television. Corky (Hopkins) is a failing magician who struggles with his mental health. When his mentor suggests he come up with a gimmick, Corky does just that, perfecting a ventriloquist act with his dummy Fats. Fantasy and reality begin to blur when Fats becomes jealous of his owner’s relationship with Peggy (Ann-Margret).
