Welcome to Flavorwire’s streaming movie guide, in which we help you sift through the scores of movies streaming on Netflix, Hulu, and other services to find the best of the recently available, freshly relevant, or soon to expire. This week, we’ve got new films from Chris Rock, Julie Delpy, Spike Lee, and the Duplass brothers, plus a treasure trove of documentaries and one of last year’s scariest flicks. Check them all out after the jump, and follow the title links to watch them right now.
This anthology of “found footage” horror, from a crew of indie directors including Ti West (The House of the Dead) and Joe Swanberg (Hannah Takes the Stairs), is clever and smart and very, very scary. But there’s also some absorbing things happening in it contextually: its shifting perspectives toy with our notions of representation and identification, and the first-person camerawork makes the traditional horror movie marriage of violence and sexuality all the more prominent, and unnerving. A rare scary movie that gets both under your skin and into your head.
