As the month of love arrives, one may expect romantic comedies and tender tales of affection. But while the world is consumed with roses and chocolates, Crackle embraces the dark side of February. Forget Valentine’s cards and heart-shaped boxes, this month Crackle is delivering screams instead of sweets.
Instead of love in the air, the only thing to smell is burnt Rubber. This twisted tale brings new meaning to “fatal attraction” by following a homicidal car tire that discovers its murderous psychic abilities. With treads as cold and unforgiving as the winter months, this vicious vehicle sets its sights on flattening a desert town after becoming obsessed with a mysterious woman.
If that doesn’t fulfill your heart’s desire for horror, perhaps Lucky Stiff will satisfy your appetite. This macabre movie follows a plump loser who, after being left at the altar by his fiancée, gets invited to Christmas dinner by a beautiful woman. But it turns out her family intends to serve him as the cannibalistic main course.
For an even more sinister Valentine’s celebration, The Ghosts of Monday provides bone-chilling sights from beyond the grave. This haunting film follows a group of American filmmakers who travel to Cyprus to document the infamous Hotel Gula, where over 100 guests died under mysterious circumstances. What should just be another case, quickly becomes a terrifying journey into the unknown as they encounter what still lurks within the tragic resort.
Instead of cuddling under the covers this month, Crackle gives you a reason to cower under the covers in fear all month long. Below is a list of all the terrifying titles coming to Crackle this February.
