Where to watch the horror comedy Blood Relatives

This has been an outstanding year for horror films. From franchise reboots like Scream and Hulu’s Hellraiser to legacy sequels like Halloween Ends to original movies like Smile and The Black Phone, horror has been one of the most popular genres for scare-starved audiences.

While Halloween has passed, that hasn’t stopped the genre from thriving. A welcome new addition to the horror/comedy canon, Blood Relatives, is set for release soon, and Digital Trends has all the info on where and when you can watch it and if it’s worth your time to stream it

Writer/director/actor Noah Segan’s twisted tale of a vampire father forced to take care of his recently discovered teenage daughter (who also bears a pair of fangs) is set for release on streaming service for all things horror. That’s right, Blood Relatives will stream on Shudder.

As any horror aficionado can tell you, Shudder is the one-stop shop for slashers, demons, monsters, and anything that induces blood-curdling terror. The streamer has hundreds of titles, including classic horror movies like The Hills Have Eyes, Prom Night, and Terror Train and modern macabre masterpieces like The Descent and The Stepfather. It also has a selection of original features like Resurrection, Speak No Evil,  and V/H/S/99 as well as documentaries like In Search of Darkness II: The Journey Into 1980s Horror Continues.

When is it streaming?

Blood Relatives will start streaming November 22.

How much does it cost?

Shudder has two main subscription plans. The first and most popular one is a monthly subscription plan that costs $5.99. There are no ads, and every movie and TV series is available on demand.

If you want to continue the horrorfest all year round, you can opt for the annual subscription plan for only $56.99. You can also “add on” Shudder to a variety of other subscription platforms like Prime Video and Hulu for $5.99.

Can I get it for free?

Yes. You can sign up for a seven-day free trial here. If you just want to watch this movie and don’t want to commit to anything, you can simply cancel the free trial before it’s over so it doesn’t automatically renew at the monthly rate.

Is Blood Relatives worth it?

Yes, especially for those looking for laughs instead of hardcore gore. Blood Relatives favors comedy over horror, supplying plenty of dad jokes to make one chuckle and grimace at the same time. It’s still a horror film though, as evidenced by a multitude of scenes showing the oddball father/daughter duo showcasing their bloodthirsty vampiric natures.

Noah Segan, of Knives Out and Glass Onion fame, writes, directs, and stars as the lead character Francis, a 115-year-old Jewish vampire. Victoria Moroles stars as Jane, his rebellious teenage daughter.  The film currently boasts a 91% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes and a 63 critics score on Metacritic.

Blood Relatives is currently playing in select theaters. It will stream on Shudder on November 22.

A man talks to another man in Ali.

The first time we really see Will Smith as Muhammad Ali in the 2001 biopic bearing the boxer’s name, it’s at a press conference. Ali, then still going by his given name of Cassius Clay, has arrived to weigh in -- in multiple respects -- before his title match against the heavyweight champion, Sonny Liston (Michael Bentt). Smith doesn’t look or sound exactly like the man he’s playing, but he gets the puckish adversarial spirit, the born-entertainer braggadocio, down cold. This is the Muhammad Ali of legend, throwing jabs of rhyming, musical trash talk before letting his fists do the talking for him in the ring.

Liston, however, is unfazed. As he heads for the exit, he turns to answer the flurry of playful taunts: “Keep talking -- I’ll f--k you up.” At that moment, Ali’s mask of insult-comic confidence slips a little. Smith lets us see a glimmer of the fear and uncertainty under his famous jocularity, and helps us understand how much that jokester routine was a strategic performance. Here, if only for a brief second, does a crack emerge in the magnetic public image of Muhammad Ali.

The best horror movies on Hulu right now

June is one of the most important months of the year. Pride Month, Juneteenth, and Father's Day all take place during this pivotal month. The best horror movies on Hulu and other streaming services are perfect for pretty much any time of the year but especially June, considering the LGBTQ+ and Black communities are remarkably supportive of the genre. After all, a great horror movie can do more than just frighten us -- at their best, they can comment on societal issues and explore deep and relatable themes.

Unlike other streamers, Hulu's horror collection is considerable and full of recognizable titles and original efforts. Hulu has a library so large that it might be easy to get lost in it, especially considering many of its best offerings are underrated original efforts many might ignore at first glance. To help, we at Digital Trends have done the work of going through Hulu's mighty collection of scary movies and selecting the best ones to keep you up at night. Here’s our roundup of the best horror movies on Hulu you can stream right now.
