Great Horror Movies to Stream for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is just around the corner, so we would like to share movies that you can stream before the occasion.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there, but especially those dads who let us stay up after midnight to catch horror flicks mom never knew existed.


Martin Freeman plays an incomparably “Good Dad” who must traverse Australian bushlands, with his infant daughter, during the zombie apocalypse. There’s even more emotional depth considering stakes, but that’s better left for a first-time watch.

Train To Busan

Enter “Good Dad” #2, Yoo Gong. His role in Train To Busan as a divorced father trades workaholic neglect for the warmth of his daughter’s love. Again, there are zombies. Again, there is immediate danger. Viewers are rewarded by not only breakneck zombie cinema, but as Cargo achieves through Martin Freeman’s performance, Yoo Gong’s mission of protecting his child (played by Su-an Kim) adds more than base-value emotional stakes.

The Wailing

Do-won Kwak’s performance in The Wailing still plants him in “Good Dad” territory, albeit a more muddied and darker internal struggle.


Wilson’s panicking parent is willing to do whatever it takes to save his son, including entrance into a purgatorial realm where spirits remain lost forever. He’s, like, “Good Dad” to the billionth degree, but let’s ignore when he’s “Bad Dad” in an inevitable sequel. Not his fault!

Before I Wake

This one concocted by Jacob Tremblay, who can bring his dreams to life whenever the little man slumbers. Jane does his best to be a loving foster parent whose new child comes with a tremendous gift, in a way that his wife (Kate Bosworth) might advantageously exploit.
