Welcome to Horrorscope, a monthly column keeping horror nerds and initiates up to date on all the horror content coming to and leaving from your favorite streaming services. Here’s all the essential horror streaming in March 2022:


Hello, friends. (Or is it fiends?)

Entering March, we must steel ourselves for the death throes of winter. Much like a slasher villain, winter has a habit of playing dead only to lurch back to life with surprise snowstorms, flash-freezes, and sub-zero temperatures. Do not fall for fakeout spring! It is a ruse!

If you’re looking for a way to ride out these final frigid weeks, you’re in luck if you’re a horror fan. March brings gory gifts in the form of collections, new releases, and previously un-streamable new finds.

Be sure to peruse the complete list below, calendar in hand, for a full picture of what horror movies are coming and going from your favorite streaming services in March 2022. Keep in mind that all dates listed below may not apply to viewers outside the US.


March 2022 Horror Streaming Cheat Sheet


Horror Streaming Highlights for March 2022

Pick of the Month: Arrebato

Arrebato

Synopsis: A low-budget horror director named José Sirgado (Eusebio Poncela) has a hard time keeping his head on straight. His heroin habit has left him in shambles, with a poor grip on reality and a string of shattered relationships. Then, one day, José comes across a new exhilarating habit: a creative team up with a vampiric filmmaker named Pedro (Will More) with an interest in time-lapse photography. Falling head-first down a rabbit hole where addiction and obsession are one and the same, José becomes overwhelmed by a mysterious red frame that has infiltrated their films.

Quasi lyrical and rumored to have been created under the influence of … several substances…, to call Arrebato hallucinatory is an understatement. While filmmakers are often ready to trip over themselves to sing the praises of their artistic medium, Arrebato (along with its closest cousins, Videodrome and Peeping Tom), is patently terrified about the insidious power of the moving image. Directed by Iván Zulueta (who readers may be more familiar with as the psychedelic poster designer behind Pedro Almodóvar’s early underground films), Arrebato is the final word on cinemania (cinephilia’s dark, paranoid alter-ego). A draining, clammy fever dream in the best way possible, Arrebato is one of the finest examples of “cinema as a drug” you’re liable to find.

Available on The Criterion Channel beginning March 17th.


Ah, the skin… an ill-fitting garment for this sordid existence

Livid

Synopsis: Hey, are you tired of feeling safe, secure, and comfy in the fleshy meat prison known as your body? Are you one of those unflappable horror fans who barely balk at a good old-fashioned dismemberment or overblown slasher kill? Well, boy, oh boy, have we got the curated collection for you. Enter: the New French Extremity.

First coined (as a pejorative) by Artforum critic James Quandt in 2004, the New French Extremity describes a collection of transgressive films that emerged out of France in the 21st century. Boasting a disturbing lack of humanity and an apparent allergy to keeping the skin on the body, films of The New French Extremity have been described as a “cinema of the body” for a reason. Namely, in that they are actively interested in desecrating the human form in a multitude of upsetting, visceral, and unceremonious ways.

By the way, if you’re wondering what the Old French Extremity is, The Independent‘s Jonathan Romney puts it that there has existed a (mostly French) conglomerate of freaks since at least as far back as the Marquis de Sade.

If none of this has scared you off yet, then good news: the sadists over at Shudder are shining a spotlight on essential titles from the boundary-pushing wave of genre films. All the titles below are available to stream stateside, and Yankees would do well to note the presence of Julien Maury’s Livid (pictured above), which was previously unavailable to stream in the US.

Shudder’s “Modern French Horror Collection” will also add the following titles to the service: Inside, High Tension, Bastards, Trouble Every Day, Evolution, Frontier(s), and MartyrsThese films join the following films previously available on Shudder, also featured in the collection: Adoration, The Advent Calendar, Among the Living, Brotherhood of the Wolf, Islands, Kandisha, Knife + Heart, Sheitan, The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears, Let the Corpses Tan, Teddy, Terror Sisters, Them, and Zombi Child.

Available on Shudder starting March 1st.


Push the boundaries of taste and decency with the beginner’s guide to Spanish madman Jesús Franco

The Awful Dr Orlof streaming horror March 2022

Synopsis: That’s right we’re spoiling you with not one but TWO collections this month. We encourage you to seek out this marvelous library of films from the prolific Spanish king of low-budget erotic horror, Jess (Jesús) Franco. 

If a New French Extremity collection is a little too “mainstream” for you, fear not. Or wait, do. Because nothing will put the fear of no-budget genre god into you quite like the work of Jesús Franco, a filmmaker who made well over 1980 films spanning sexploitation, horror, and (get this) horror-sexploitation. The “Nightmares Come at Night: The Jess Franco Collection” is a surefire way to push the boundaries of taste and decency in the most fun way possible. A workaholic who appeared to be bound by some hilariously specific demonic contract to make as many B-movies as possible, what Franco lacked in funds he more than made up for in contagious zeal.

Titles include: Oasis of the Living Dead, The Awful Dr. Orlof, Nightmares Come at Night, Eugenie De Sade, The Sadist Baron von Klaus.

Available on ARROW starting March 1st.


What’s better than this? Guys being dudes who try to pull off the perfect murder and then host a dinner party on their victim’s corpse?

Rope

Synopsis: Two gay lovers — uh, I mean *very close friends* — strangle their former prep school classmate in their Manhattan penthouse apartment. The crime, they tell themselves, is an intellectual exercise, an aesthete’s attempt to establish their superiority by pulling off the perfect murder. Part of the morbid song and dance is to host a dinner party with their victim’s parents and fiancée, the corpse hidden just out of sight in the chest beneath the table cloth. Also present at the wildly tense get-together is the pair’s prep-school headmaster, Ruper Cadell (James Stewart), who inadvertently planted the murderous seeds in the young boys’ minds all those years ago.

Based on Patrick Hamilton’s 1929 play of the same name,  Rope (1948) marks the second of Alfred Hitchcock‘s single-locale features (the first being the wildly underrated Lifeboat). Comprised of 10 long takes stitched together to give the impression of one continuous, feature-length shot, Rope is quietly suspenseful and loudly queer in a way that’ll have you shaking in your boots. At a brisk 80-minutes, you can’t afford not to watch Rope, quite frankly.

Available on Peacock beginning March 1st.
