I Know What You Did Last Summer

Available on Amazon Prime Video

An immediately recognizable thriller and defining pop culture sensation, I Know What You Did Last Summer is a stunning and startling novel adaptation. One of the most amazing things about the era in which the film was made is how many oft-referenced movies are available for viewers to experience in such a different way all these years later. This straightforward slasher about responsibility and sacrifice is a must-see for the people who like to yell at the TV.

Blade Runner: The Final Cut

Available on HBO Max

Blade Runner: The Final Cut is an edit of the film totally unlike its previous releases, with director Ridley Scott in complete creative control. In this dystopian future where androids function solely in servitude, a detective hunts an android that has gained self-awareness and begun to kill humans. This adaptation of the 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Phillip K. Dick is rich with symbolism and allegory, a science-fiction essential dense with moral qualms and questions concerning the nature of life and living things.

Young Frankenstein

Available on Amazon Prime Video

A warped depiction of the infamous literary character Dr. Frankenstein and his reanimated man, made from human body parts, Young Frankenstein defines dark humor. An incredibly unique take on the drama, the film shows the roots of all different kinds of witty, dry comedy to date. In the film, a descendent of the original Dr. Frankenstein inherits the Frankenstein estate and begins to reenact his grandfather’s experiment in this 1978 theatrical oddball parody, a progenitor of the surreal and macabre humor many people know from the 1990s.

The Voyeurs

Available on Amazon Prime Video

This psychological thriller follows a couple who move into their dream apartment and quickly become inappropriately interested, even obsessed, with their neighbors across the street. A visually enrapturing piece complete with interesting social commentary, this eloquent take on the erotic thriller, be warned, is a little saucy.

The Omen

Available on Hulu

The Omen follows a young child adopted at birth by his father, unbeknownst to his wife, after their biological child dies shortly after birth. During a series of mysterious and unsettling events and gruesome deaths, the parents learn that their child is the antichrist of prophecy. With its iconic soundtrack and beautiful onscreen imagery, newer movies and TV are constantly referencing this chilling cult horror classic. 

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie

Available on Amazon Prime Video

Inspired by a true story, this uplifting comedy centers around a teenage boy who aspires to be a drag queen. With characters that overcome crushing social subjugation and bullying, this empowering new original movie is an ode of triumph, individuality, and growth. Fun to watch with a fantastic and exciting soundtrack, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie leaves the audience with a positive message about friendship and acceptance.
