Marvel’s “Special Presentation,” Werewolf by Night, may not be a full-length feature film, but it still

surpasses the length of a typical TV show, earning its spot on our list. Starring Gael Garcia Bernal as the

titular wolf-man, the story revolves around a dangerous monster hunt. In our Dexerto review, we noted

that the movie deviates considerably from its comic book source material, where the protagonist, Jack,

was an affluent 18-year-old from Malibu. However, these changes prove to be fitting, infusing the film

with a mix of tragedy and comedy, and giving it a timeless quality that aligns with the great horror

classics it draws inspiration from.

“Alien,” all the Predator movies are available on Disney+, and each of them contributes something

unique to the franchise. Among them, “Prey,” a recent release, stands out as a standout entry. However,

titular monster and the formidable Arnold Schwarzenegger. This confrontation makes the fight fair and

leads to some of the most intense and goriest kills ever seen in action cinema. The combination of

suspense, action, and impressive special effects in the original “Predator” movie makes it a thrilling and

combination that often falls short in delivering genuine scares. However, “The Omen” defies expectations

and delivers a chilling and captivating experience. Gregory Peck leads an impressive cast, and together,

they tell the chilling tale of an American diplomat raising the son of Satan. The movie boasts memorable

kills, an abundance of scares, and an especially terrifying performance by young Damien, played by

Harvey Spencer Stephens. “The Omen” stands as a testament to how a well-crafted horror film can still

send shivers down your spine, even with a big-budget and big-name talents involved.

When it comes to remakes, the general advice is to make it different or better than the original. David

Cronenberg’s 1986 version of “The Fly,” an update of the 1958 classic, successfully achieves both by

being weirder, gorier, and scarier than its predecessor. Jeff Goldblum’s well-suited portrayal of a peculiar

scientist who invents a matter teleportation machine takes a dark turn when he accidentally merges with a

fly, leading to horrifying consequences.
