Fridays are made for movies
We are getting closer to a return to normalcy, which in my younger days meant a trip to the movie theater every Friday to catch the new releases and chow down on popcorn. I haven't been to a movie theater since Tenet came out in 2020 and I'm pretty sure Black Widow is going to scratch the blockbuster itch.
But that's for another post...
Instead, let's talk about this Friday and how all three of the major streaming sites have "new" movies for you to check out.
First up we will go with HULU as its new movie is actually just new to watch on a service, not a brand new movie - if that makes sense.
Bill & Ted Face the Music is hitting the site on July 2nd and while it was available for you to buy or rent in 2020, I think there are quite a few people who missed it. Well, now's the time to make up for that if you want to see what these 2 knuckleheads look like 30+ years later.
Next up is on Netflix and is the 1st part of a new horror trilogy based on R.L. Stine's series of the same name.
The premise is simple: A circle of teenage friends accidentally encounter the ancient evil responsible for a series of brutal murders that have plagued their town for over 300 years. Welcome to Shadyside.
A perfect movie to watch with your horror-loving friends. The best part is parts 2 & 3 will be out in the same month so you won't have to wait long for the full story.
The last one up is on Prime and would have been just what the Blockbuster Movie Doctor ordered...if that was a thing.
This is the type of movie popcorn was made for.
Aliens attack in the future, the humans go back to the past and recruit more people to help in the fight. The potential for sucking is high with these movies, but if it's done right...well, then it might be one of those summer action movies we go back to every year. Fingers crossed.
Now I know some readers are likely getting frustrated with the lack of a weekly serial every Wednesday, but there's hope on the horizon. I'm working hard to finish my 4th book - which will include the 1969 Donn, TX story - and to script out a new horror series for a weekly run within the next few weeks.
We are getting close, and I'm excited to share the title, cover, and blurb for the next book. See you Monday and have a great weekend.
