Twilight streaming guide: how to watch Twilight online

Few phenomena have taken over pop culture as thoroughly as Twilight did in the late 2000s. The first film, which was adapted from Stephanie Meyer’s novel of the same name, was released in 2008, and featured young stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. In the years since the franchise concluded, Pattinson and Stewart have gone on to have fascinating careers, with Pattinson taking on the role of Batman and Stewart becoming the darling of a number of indie auteurs.

When the first movie came out, it turned them both into instant celebrities, and that public fascination was only increased by the relationship drama between them. Every book in Meyer’s saga was eventually adapted to the screen, and each of them became major hits at the box office. The first film follows Stewart’s Bella, a girl who moves to the small town of Forks, Washington, and eventually meets Edward Cullen, a boy who turns out to be over 100 years old but has nonetheless fallen madly in love with her. The two engage in a romance, and other drama and violence ensue as a result.

If you’re feeling a pang of nostalgia, though, and you want to go back to Twilight, you may be wondering what the easiest way to watch the movie online is. As it turns out, the movie is not currently available anywhere to stream for free, but that doesn’t mean you can’t track it down if you really want to watch it.

How to watch Twilight online

Twilight (2008) Official Trailer

Because Twilight is not available to stream for free, the best way to watch it is by renting or buying it from your preferred video-on-demand vendor. The movie is available for $4 from Apple TV, Amazon, YouTube, Google Play, and a variety of other services. You can also buy the movie for between $7 and $8, depending on which service you purchase it from. Vudu and Amazon appear to be the only two vendors currently selling it for $7.

Twilight‘s sequels are also only available through VOD, which means that you can rent the movies through the same services. Rental prices seem to be roughly the same for each of the four sequels that Twilight spawned, although the cost to purchase any of those movies is higher at $10.

If you’re willing to wait to watch Twilight through a streaming subscription, it’s possible that the movies will end up on a streamer at some point. For a period in 2021, the movies were all available to watch on Netflix, although that is obviously no longer the case. Like almost all movies, though, Twilight goes through periods where it’s available on a streamer and periods where it isn’t. If you want to have access to the movie whenever you want without buying a physical copy of it, your best bet is to purchase a digital copy of the movie that you can access whether it’s on a streaming service or not. Then, Bella and Edward will always just be a few buttons away.

Game of Thrones: How George R. R. Martin’s world can expand in animation

The recent Warner Bros. Discovery merger seems to have added a layer of tense unpredictability regarding the state of WB's IPs, but it seems that writer George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones world will stay the course with the upcoming House of the Dragon around the corner.

It would be bizarre if it didn't, as it is HBO's most historic TV series and proved to be a cultural phenomenon in the process. And with reports of many spinoffs in the works, the network should look to animation as another worthy avenue to explore. Per those reports, there are at least some such projects already in development, and taking advantage of animation's newfound appreciation could prove to be something more than worth doubling down on.

The best time-loop movies and TV episodes
Natasha Lyonne as Nadya in Russian Doll, her face pressed against a subway door.

Movies and TV shows have taken the concept of déjà vu or having a weird feeling of a repeated experience to varying levels through some of the most notable projects of the last few decades. So much so, in fact, that the time loop has become a sub-genre of its own, largely made popular by the most famous time-loop movie of all, 1993's Groundhog Day, and present in many TV shows over the years, either in episodic form like in Star Trek, or full shows like Netflix's brilliant Russian Doll.

It's no wonder since we are curious beings who want to know more about love, life, and existence. In some cases, these stories look at whether or not it's possible to change the course of history or if things are the way they are meant to be. In others, characters are stuck in loops designed to teach them more about themselves or the people around them.

The scariest ghosts in the Ghostbusters movies
Rowan the Destructor in Ghostbusters (2016).

Ray Parker Jr.'s classic theme song for Ghostbusters proudly states, "I ain't 'fraid of no ghost!" But perhaps he should be. Ghostbusters is a comedy franchise, but there are touches of horror in the films as well. Some of the ghosts are even genuinely terrifying, and they wouldn't be out of place in a more serious take on the paranormal. Harmless spooks like Slimer seem like the exception rather than the rule. After all, there's a reason why the Ghostbusters' services are often needed. Now that Ghostbusters: Afterlife is finally in theaters, we're taking a look back at the two previous films, as well as the 2016 reboot, to pick the scariest ghosts in the Ghostbusters movies.  You can keep the light on while reading this list, if you feel the need to.
10: The Driver

We don't actually know if the Driver is a sinister apparition. He only appears briefly in the original Ghostbusters as a taxi driver, which is perhaps the role he had during his mortal life. But the reason the Driver makes this list is that his zombie-like appearance is truly unsettling. He also drives like a madman. If we ever saw a ghost like this, we'd be running the other way even if he was our Uber driver.
