Thriller movies on Crave


Old (2020)

A family goes on a tropical holiday where they discover a secluded beach that causes them to age rapidly.

The acting isn’t the greatest tbh, but it is very suspenseful and an interesting watch.

Directed by M. Night Shyamalan, Old is based on a Swiss graphic novel titled Sandcastle.

The cinematography by Michael Gioulakis is lovely – he also did the cinematography for Shyamalan’s Split and Glass, Jordan Peele’s Us, and Servant on Apple TV+!

Don’t Worry Darling (2022)

A young couple live in the utopian 1950s community of Victory, an experimental company town where all the men are working on a top-secret project.

The wives of all the men enjoy the luxuries of their seemingly perfect paradise, but meanwhile something sinister lurks below the surface.

I do wish they’d explained some things more, but overall the film is a good watch!

Harry Styles, Florence Pugh, Olivia Wilde, Chris Pine, and Gemma Chan all star in Don’t Worry Darling.

There was actually a whole lot of controversy surrounding the film before it was released, with supposedly a lot of drama within the cast. You can Google it ’cause it’s a lot!

Fear of Rain (2021)

A teen with early-onset schizophrenia struggles between figuring out what’s real and what’s in her head when she suspects her next-door neighbour has kidnapped a little girl.

Katherine Heigl stars as the mom in Fear of Rain, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen her in anything other than comedies!

The Shining (1980)

The Shining is of course one of the most iconic horror movies ever made.

Even if you haven’t seen the film before, you’ll definitely recognize some of its most famous lines and scenes.

Jack Torrance moves his wife and young son into the Overlook Hotel, where they plan on taking care of it during the winter.

His son starts to get disturbing visions as Jack starts to discover the dark secrets behind the hotel.

There’s a sequel that came out in 2019 called Doctor Sleep, but tbh I don’t think it does the original film any justice.

It’s about the son, Danny, who’s now an adult haunted by his past.

Dead Ringers (1988)

Identical twins Elliot and Beverly are successful gynecologists in Toronto.

Elliot, the more confident brother, has affairs with many of his patients, and when he loses interest, passes them onto his meeker brother without the woman knowing.

When Beverly falls head over heels for one of the patients and she deceives him, he starts to go mad.

Dead Ringers was directed and written by iconic Canadian sci-fi horror director David Cronenberg, and it’s actually based on two real identical twin gynecologists!

The Last Night in Soho (2021)

A young fashion design student mysteriously transports to the 60s, where she encounters a glamorous aspiring singer.

While everything seems all glitz and glam at the start, things turn out to be darker than they seem.

Anya Taylor-Joy is incredible in The Last Night in Soho, and Matt Smith is also great!

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021)

The Devil Made Me Do It is the third instalment of The Conjuring series, where Ed and Lorraine Warren investigate a young man accused of murder, who claims he’s been possessed.

The Conjuring is one of my all-time favourite horror franchises – the movies are actually terrifying, and they’re actually based on real people and real life cases!

Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson star in all three movies, and they’re fantastic together.

Antlers (2021)

A teacher and sheriff sibling duo discover a young student is hiding a dark secret in their small town in Oregon.

There are some pretty terrifying and gory scenes if you’re okay with that.

Fun fact: they filmed Antlers in British Columbia!

Malignant (2021)

Tormented by violent visions, a woman becomes terrified when she realizes these events are actually happening in real life.

Malignant is filled with plenty of memorable and gory scenes, so it definitely ain’t for the faint of heart.

I did find some things about the movie a little corny, which made it a little less freaky.

James Wan (behind the iconic Saw, Insidious, and The Conjuring horror franchises) directed the film!

Come Play (2020)

Lonely Oliver spends his time glued to screens, and a lonely monster uses his devices to enter his world.

Come Play is a great thriller with a pretty good ending, and I love how they use modern technology to tell a terrifying story.

You might recognize Gillian Jacobs from the Netflix series Love!

Freaky (2020)

Freaky Friday meets Halloween in this horror-comedy.

When teenager Millie Kessler becomes the target of the Butcher, the town serial killer, they magically switch bodies with the power of a mystical dagger, and she discovers she only has 24 hours to get her identity back.

Freaky is a fun watch, and it’s suitable for even your friends who aren’t crazy about scary movies!

Kathryn Newton (Detective Pikachu and Big Little Lies) and Vince Vaughn star in this one!

Assassination Nation (2018)

Four high school girls in Salem fight for their lives after a hacker exposes everyone in town’s secrets and sends the town into chaos.

The real action in Assassination Nation takes awhile, but it’s still an interesting watch.

Slasher horror movies on Crave

Scream (1996, 1997, & 2000)

Can you call yourself a horror fan without having seen Scream?

The Scream franchise revolves around Sidney Prescott, who constantly gets chased by psychopaths in ghostface masks.

It’s definitely one of my favourite horror franchises of all-time, and you can stream the first 3 movies on Crave.

The 4th movie unfortunately isn’t on Crave, but you can watch it on Prime Video.

There’s also a 5th movie that came out this year, with a 6th movie coming out in 2023!

It’s the ultimate slasher franchise that never gets old or boring, and I never get tired of re-watching it.

While Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger may be the OG slasher villains, I find myself laughing too much since both franchises started in the 70s and 80s and the special effects and costumes are kinda corny.

Halloween Kills (2021)

As much as I love to hate on the Halloween movies, I can’t deny that I’ll keep watching them.

Halloween Kills is the latest instalment of the classic horror franchise, and it directly follows the events of the 2018 movie – Michael Myers escapes Laurie’s trap and starts murdering people again.

Laurie reunites with a now-adult Tommy, the boy she babysat on the night Michael started his reign of terror, who leads an angry mob of vigilantes to destroy Michael.

Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, and Anthony Michael Hall all star in this one.

Saw franchise (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2017, & 2021)

You’ve probably heard of the Saw franchise, and it’s definitely not for everyone.

A masked man named Jigsaw tortures people in the worst ways possible, and all of the movies are pretty gory and horrifying.

They actually filmed the latest movie, Spiral: From the Book of Saw, here in Toronto!

9 films available on Crave

Candyman franchise (1992 & 2021)

The Candyman is a creepy hook-handed killer who terrorizes people who speak his name, and the 2021 film is a direct sequel.

Some of the actors from the original movie reprise their roles in the sequel, and Jordan Peele is also one of the writers!

The movies are hella gory if that’s what you’re looking for.

2 films available on Crave, watch the trailers for the first and second films

The Forever Purge (2021)

Part of the popular Purge franchise, The Forever Purge is about a different set of people and how they deal with the infamous Purge.

If you don’t know what the fictional “Purge” is, it’s 12 hours when almost all crime is legal, in an effort to create a ~crime-free~ world the rest of the year.

In this one, a couple works for a wealthy family, and both families have to band together to fight off a masked gang of killers on the morning after the Purge.

It definitely doesn’t live up to the original, but it’s a fun watch if you’re looking for more of the Purge world.
