This week’s slate of new movies to watch at home is jam-packed with brand-new straight-to-streaming releases and critically acclaimed movies making their home watching debuts.

Leading the way is Scream VI, the latest entry in the meta slasher franchise, which sees Ghostface take his talents to New York City. That movie debuts on Paramount Plus, joining the rest of the franchise on that platform.

Also of note: David Lowery’s straight-to-Disney Plus Peter Pan and Wendy. Lowery previously directed the 2016 adaptation of Pete’s Dragon, as well as The Green Knight.

There’s also the David Bowie documentary Moonage Daydream making its debut on HBO Max, the highly-acclaimed drama Return to Seoul at a reduced rental price, and Netflix’s French action thriller AKA.

Let’s get into it.
