New to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, HBO & Tubi, February 2021 (for horror, paranormal & genre fans)

Each month, I like to pick out the best streaming has to offer for fans of the paranormal.  This can include straight-up ghost stories like “The Conjuring 1 & 2” or “The Haunting In Connecticut,” true crime stories, since those sometimes lead to ghost stories and historical movies like “Witches of Salem.”

Of course, if you’re a fan of ghost stories, there’s a chance you like horror movies in general, SciFi flicks and movies adapted from comic books.  It’s better to include more than less, so find all of them listed below.

If there’s a title I missed, please just drop me a line or comment and I’ll update.  I’m sure we’ll also fine tune how things will be displayed going forward.

For the second straight month, Netflix has a very light release schedule and for the second month, their highlight involves a docu-series that involves the Cecil Hotel (last month it was about LA’s Night Stalker, Richard Ramirez and this month it’s about the hotel’s history, especially the mystery of Elisa Lam’s death).  Hulu has the biggest slate of great genre fare this month, with lots of new TV series and horror titles.
