The ‘Lovesick’ section on Shudder, a premium streaming video service super-serving fans of thrillers, suspense, and horror, has the following films that straddle the thin line between love and terror.
In ‘May’, loner oddball May takes up with a filmmaker, but the relationship sours quickly -- and dangerously. Her subsequent relationship with an alluring colleague, along with every connection May attempts to make, turns deadly. In ‘Midnight Son’ Jacob instantly falls in love with a beautiful bartender but finds himself struggling to resist his vampiric urges as their relationship takes him down a dark path.
‘The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Miss Osbourne’ is an eerie erotic spin on Jekyll and Hyde where Dr. Jekyll is set to wed Fanny, his beloved. But a strange powder turns him into a murderous rapist who starts attacking the wedding guests. But does Fanny have a dark side too?
In ‘Nekromantik’, a twisted man brings home a corpse but when his wife runs away with it, things get really messy.
‘Let The Right One In’ mixes a touching story of two outsiders who find each other with some truly vicious vampire thrills when a bullied boy befriends, then falls for a vampire girl.
‘Black Sunday’ is regularly cited as one of the greatest horror movies of all time and scream queen Barbara Steele is still known as one of the most beautiful bad girls in horror history, playing a vengeful witch returned to possess her descendant.
Finally, in ‘Summer of Blood’ online dating leaves lazy and socially oblivious Erik lost, until a lanky vampire turns him into an undead ladykiller with a maniacal sex drive matched only by his frenzied need to feed on blood.
