My Picks for Horror Worth Streaming for Halloween 2018

Train to Busan is one of Zengrrl's picks for horror to stream for Halloween 2018.

Since Halloween falls on a Wednesday this year, I’m guessing most of you will be staying home doing the Stream and Scream thing, instead of going out and partying (hey – isn’t that what the weekend is for?).

If you fall into this category, and are looking for some quality horror, here are my picks for what to stream on Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Netflix for Halloween 2018. I watch a lot of horror to find the best ones, so give these picks a try (the videos may take a bit to load):

Living with MS: The Unexpected Hiatus

On Hiatus - tv standby

The fun thing (fun being used in the sarcastic sense) about living with an autoimmune disease like Multiple Sclerosis, is that it is so unpredictable. You can be achieving some level of normalcy and then your body just decides to shut down.

Such is the case of the last two months.

Movie Review: Incredibles 2 is Superhero-Sized Family Fun

The Zengrrl review of Disney*Pixar's Incredibles 2, featuring both spoiler-free and spoiler-ish versions of the review. 

Fourteen years after the original film, the Parr family is back in action in Incredibles 2, and it’s good to have them back.

This new adventure picks up shortly after the end of Incredibles, with superheroes having to operate in the shadows due to being outlaws.

Helen/Elastigirl (voiced by Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob/Mr. Incredible (voiced by Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voiced by Sarah Vowell), Dash (voiced by  Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—who seems to have more than one superpower.

Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voiced by Samuel L. Jackson) and a few new superheroes by their side.
