With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.
Writer/director Felix van Groeningen based Belgica’s script on his father’s experiences running a nightclub in Ghent. How closely the story hews to the real events is anyone’s guess, though the boilerplate “though inspired by true events, all persons depicted are fictitious” title card which opens the film suggests that it might hit too close to home for more than a few real-life people. »

Whenever a movie sits on the shelf for more than a couple years before being released, it’s hard not to wonder if the reason is because it turned out poorly. But when you look through the history books, or run a quick Google search, you’ll realize that many exceptional horror movies have languished in pre-release hell over the years. Films like You’re Next, The Cabin in the Woods, and Trick ‘r Treat took their sweet time entering our lives, and the same can certainly be said about Flight 7500 (formerly 7500).
But was this one worth the wait?
Written by Craig Rosenberg and directed by Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge), and originally set for release way back in 2012, Flight 7500 centers on the passengers of a doomed flight from Los Angeles to Tokyo. »

Flight 7500 is a film we’ve been paying attention to for quite some time. Originally scheduled for an August 2012 release, the thriller in the sky film was postponed time and time again, until now. The folks at Lionsgate are releasing the Ryan Kwanten/Amy Smary-led film on April 12th, and we have a brand new Exclusive clip from the film, from us to you fright fanatics. Looks pretty intense, right?
From the director of The Grudge comes this spine-chilling journey into fear. On a flight from Los Angeles to Tokyo, a plane is shaken by severe weather. When the turbulence subsides, a passenger suddenly dies — and a supernatural force is unleashed, overtaking the passengers as they desperately fight to figure out what it is and how to stop it.

Japanese director Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge) returns to horror with Flight 7500. This film, formerly titled Flight 75, takes place on a haunted airliner. Here, an eclectic cast of characters do their best to survive the flight and touch down on Earth, once again. Completed in 2012, the film stars Ryan Kwanten ("True Blood"), Jerry Ferrara ("Entourage") and Scout Taylor-Compton. The film's release details are available here. For more on the story, Flight 7500 starts with a ten hour trip. Flying out of Los Angeles, this trip is destined for Tokyo. But, there is a short pit stop in hell, at 30,000 feet as a supernatural force attacks the passengers. This title had a theatrical release in 2014? That release was missed by this horror fan. But, Flight 7500 will see a second release on DVD, in April. Lionsgate Home Entertainment will distribute this title. And, a trailer for the film is hosted below. »
