Weekend #41 of 53 (10/8 – 10/11/2020) for 2020 Picks By Streaming Service
Halloween and October in general is Christmas for horror fans. Since the movie theater landscape is ravaged, we continue to turn to streaming for the bulk of new movies to watch. Thank you to the various streaming channels for stepping up and giving us new content to watch.
Watch parties! We’ve attended a few virtual watch parties and they are fun. There are several coming up this weekend and next.
A Blumhouse watch party event in association with Fangoria and for those with Amazon Prime Video on Saturday and Sunday including a Q&A with directors following the viewing.
Saturday October 10 @ 5:30pm PT – The Lie

Not recommended, except if you truly want to see how incredibly awful it is: Cats will be available Oct 10 on HBO Max. They should have offered a director’s cut, something to see if they could improve this abomination. It’s one of those slow down and watch an accident mentality watches and mentioned only for that moment.
