Horror Double Features For Social Distancing

The coronavirus has really turned things upside down. I have to tell you, I really miss going to my local Alamo theater a couple of times a week and watching old and new horror movies. I miss seeing all those familiar faces and just having a good time together.

I’m sure most of you are home and wondering what the hell you’re going to do to fill your days and nights. I’m here to help you by curating fun double features that you can watch online. Give them a gander and post your comments here so we can all interact without the fear of catching something.

I happened to suggest this one on the recent Final Guys and felt it’s perfect to kick thing off.

GRABBERS

This was the strangest St. Patrick’s Day ever. No bars. Nor parade. Nuthin. To get a flavor for the special day, my family watched the Irish horror flick, GRABBERS. A monster crashes into the sea around an island in Ireland. The tentacled beastie does have one weakness – it doesn’t like to eat people who are drunk! So the townspeople gather in the pub to drink their faces off while under attack. One of my favorite modern monster movies, Grabbers should be watched while sipping whisky.

It also has the most succinct and accurate synopsis ever –

“A small town must stay drunk in order to fight back an alien attack.”

You can watch Grabbers on Hulu or Amazon Prime.

THE HOST

Now let’s head over to South Korea for another killer sea creature that will make your heart race and give you a jump scare or two. Although it came out 14 years ago, the CGI here is excellent and the solid performances will suck you right in. It would be a dream to see the baddie in The Host battle it out with the Grabbers. Heads will fly…literally!

“On 09 February 2000, the American military base of Yongson releases toxic chemicals in the drain to the Han River under the direct order of an arrogant coroner. Six years later, a mutant squid monster emerges from Seoul’s Han River and focuses its attention on attacking people.”

You can watch The Host on Amazon.
