3. Sleep Walkers
When a hot new guy shows up at her high school, pretty and innocent Tanya couldn’t be more excited. But there’s something strange about Charles and his mother, Mary.

4. The Species Trilogy
In this sci-fi/horror trilogy, scientists splice alien and human DNA to create Sil, an extraterrestrial-human hybrid who rapidly matures into a seductive monster.

You’ve heard of zombies, vampires, aliens—but what about a killer car? Nerdy Arnie’s obsession with his Plymouth Fury Christine might be a little unhealthy. But after bullies vandalize her, Christine comes to life. And she’s out for blood. This satisfyingly vindictive Stephen King adaptation is available on VOD.
