Disney + has just launched its Star expansion since February 23. Several new titles are therefore landing on the platform and we finally have the possibility of accessing films or series for adults. Discover our selection of 5 horror films to find above.
Horror has arrived on Disney + Star
Prior to February 23, Disney + was the perfect place to find something to occupy the kids or watch something with the family. The Disney brand is open to all generations. It was still nice to be able to dive back into animated classics, to consume Star Wars or Marvel, but the offer quickly reached its most glaring limit: the lack of diversity. Those looking for content geared towards a mature audience were bound to be unsatisfied. Disney has just corrected the situation with its Star expansion. Discover 5 horror films now available on the platform.
28 days later by Danny Boyle
Before 28 days later, zombies were characterized by their slowness. This mythical figure of horror cinema remained threatening because it invaded the Earth and created an unbalanced balance of power with the survivors via the surplus. At Danny Boyle, zombies can run and this is a game-changer. Using an aesthetic that is deliberately not flashy (the film was shot in DV), the director plunges us into a dying world. Contaminated people are a formidable threat but these are the men to be wary of the most. Jim (the always excellent Cillian Murphy), a man who wakes up from a coma after the world has gone downhill, will realize this. To extend the experience on Star, the recommended suite 28 week later is also available.
Fly by David Cronenberg
Classic among the classics, Fly has already been over-commented and will be over and over again. David Cronenberg signs one of his greatest films, and undoubtedly one that is deeply rooted in the collective imagination. Jeff Goldblum’s long decrepitude is a landmark in the sub-genre of body horror. The sensational special effects are still at an incredible level today. This transformation of the main character into a giant fly serves as a pure cause of anguish as a reflection on the degradation of the bodies of patients at the end of their life. Pure Cronenberg, in form and substance.
The hills Have Eyes by Alexandre Aja
The hills Have Eyes by Wes Craven is considered a classic of horror cinema. In the idea, because it is simply outdated today, unable to produce the slightest horror sensation. This is why the remake of Alexandre Aja is much more appreciable. After the success of High tension, the French director gives in to Hollywood sirens and agrees to lead this new, more modern version. The premise remains the same when confronting an American family with rednecks deformed by the radioactive fallout from the nuclear tests carried out. Aja delivers a violent show animated by a tension that takes you to the guts. We almost forget the original work after this little bomb and we have in front of us one of the few remakes that surpass their model.
A cry in the ocean by Stephen Sommers
More fantastic than truly horrific, A cry in the ocean is a B series which holds enormous sympathy capital. We have the impression that American cinema no longer knows how to make films like that – the underestimated Underwater released in early 2020 had the flavor. Stephen Sommers’ film has its faults, but it takes the viewer on a generous adventure in the heart of a ship where a sprawling creature has taken up residence. The few bloody bursts work, Treat Williams fighte with a giant monster and the whole thing tastes of an honest old school show. A cry in the ocean is far from the best you will find on Star, but everything is in place for lovers of old-fashioned genre cinema to get their bearings.
Alien, the eighth passenger by Ridley Scott
By buying Fox, Disney has recovered sacred monsters that are not the most compatible with its brand image: Alien and Predator. The two films they have in common, the first Predator and the Alien quadrilogy, have therefore just landed on Star. Perfect opportunity to redo your seminal Alien by Ridley Scott. Cornerstone of its kind, it still serves as a source of inspiration in our time, more than 40 years after its release. Model of…
