9 Scary Superhero Movies To Stream Instead Of ‘New Mutants’

Since The New Mutants won’t be opening today, enjoy an art house sci-fi fable, a trendsetting vampire actioner, a modern DC Films classic and more “good-n-scary” superhero movies.

In a world not rocked by coronavirus, this weekend’s big new theatrical release would be New Mutants. Yes, Josh Boone’s stand-alone X-Men flick, which was supposed to open back in April of 2018, joins The Hunt and The Interview as one of the unluckiest movies in modern history.

However, in the meantime, if you’re itching for some “It’s a comic book superhero movie… but scary!” action, I’ve got you covered. Here are nine superhero movies, some original and some adapted, with at least some elements of the heebies and/or jeebies. As always, these will be in alphabetical order and all of these are available to rent from various VOD platforms for anywhere from $4 to $10.
