Welcome back for another installment of “From Streams to Screams,” everyone!

For today’s selection of horror movies that are currently streaming on a variety of platforms—Shudder, Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Vudu and Tubi TV—we’re taking a trip back in time to the 1970s and 1980s, which were arguably two of the greatest decades in genre storytelling.

And before anyone asks, “Where’s this movie? Where’s this other movie?,” I’ve been careful to not repeat listings in all of the different editions of “From Streams to Screams,” so this is more of a rundown of all the great ’70s and ’80s horror that I haven’t been able to mention over the

Multiple Friday the 13th Fan Films Set to Release Friday, September 13th
The Friday the 13th movie franchise still sits dead in the water as a legal battle over the rights continues, but many filmmaker fans of the series are still keeping his spirit alive. For anyone unaware, the director of the original movie, Sean Cunningham, sued screenwriter Victor Miller when the latter utilized a provision of U.S. copyright law which allows him to reclaim the rights after 35 years. After a judge initially ruled in Miller's favor, Cunningham and his company appealed, keeping the rights battle going for the foreseeable future. With no near end in sight to the lawsuit, at least two filmmakers will be releasing anticipated Friday the 13th fan films on the same day: Sept. 13, which is, of course, a Friday.

From director Cody Faulk, the fan film Voorhees promises the most brutal version of Jason Voorhees yet. The story follows a group of dangerous criminals with hostages

Jason Voorhees Actor Kane Hodder Pitches Idea for 13th Friday the 13th Movie
Friday the 13th franchise star Kane Hodder hasn't played Jason Voorhees on the big screen since 2002's Jason X, but the legendary horror star says he's ready to play the character once again if he gets the opportunity. Additionally, Hodder also has some ideas for the next Friday the 13th movie, which would see many other fan favorite stars returning to the series as well.

The thinking behind this is that longtime fans of the series have watched each of the installments so many times over the past couple decades, and it would be fun as a viewer to see many faces they recognize in the next movie. Kane Hodder says this.

"I just think that when they do do a 13th one, it certainly couldn't hurt to bring me back as Jason, unless it's in 20 years, maybe. But it certainly couldn't hurt the success of the movie, I don't think,

The Friday the 13th movie series is currently on hold pending the outcome of an ongoing legal battle over the rights, but Jason Lives director Tom McLoughlin already has a script written for another sequel.

In 1986, McLoughlin delivered his contribution to the Friday the 13th franchise with the sixth movie Jason Lives. The sequel has since established itself with a strong cult following as one of the most popular installments of the series. It starred

Jason Lives Actor Returning as Tommy Jarvis in Friday the 13th Fan Film Sequels
The creators of the Friday the 13th fan film Never Hike Alone are teasing new sequels with Thom Mathews as Tommy Jarvis.

The ending left room for a sequel, leading to fans hoping for an official follow-up movie to continue the story.

Voorhees Trailer #2 Has Jason Killing Criminals in Friday the 13th Fan Film

Director Cody Faulk has released the second trailer for his Friday the 13th fan film Voorhees, and the video also reveals the movie's release date. The movie will appropriately release on September 13th of this year, which is, of course, Friday the 13th. Funded through a successful crowdfunding campaign and featuring a feature length storyline with all-practical FX, the movie should be an entertaining watch for big fans of the popular horror franchise. Better yet, Voorhees will be free to watch on YouTube when it is released.

This fan film gives Jason another group of victims to slice through, far different from the teenage camp counselors we might expect. Now, he sets his sights on a gang of robbers hiding out in the woods of Crystal Lake, hoping to avoid getting caught by pursuing police officers. It's there where Jason begins to pick them off one by one, with their

Friday the 13th Reunion Movie 13 Fanboy Adds Original Final Girl Adrienne King
The Friday the 13th reunion slasher movie 13 Fanboy has added yet another fan favorite to the cast, as actress Adrienne King has been confirmed for a cameo. Directed and co-written by Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning star Deborah Voorhees, 13 Fanboy is a passion project made specifically for Jason fans. With a very meta story, the movie will be about a homicidal psychopath murdering legends from the horror genre, mostly from the Friday the 13th series. A bulk of the cast will all be playing themselves, and there will even be multiple Jason actors in the movie who just wind up as victims this time.

Fans of the franchise remember King fondly as the very first final girl of the series. As camp counselor Alice Hardy, King's character managed to survive the first Friday the 13th killing spree. Of course, the killer in the original movie wasn't Jason,

Certainly, it goes without saying that the upcoming horror movie 13 Fanboy will be a must-see movie for horror fans.

Voorhees Brings Criminals to Crystal Lake in Friday the 13th Fan Film

Officially, it has now been the longest span of time between Friday the 13th movies. The last one to be released was the 2009 remake by Platinum Dunes, which means we're coming up on a decade without seeing Jason Voorhees on the big screen. Unfortunately, the future of the franchise remains uncertain, due to some legal drama going on over the rights. With it potentially being years before we get another official movie, filmmakers are taking it upon themselves to keep Jason alive in the meantime. The next one to keep an eye on is Voorhees, which just released a full trailer this week.

From director Cody Faulk and executive producer Chris Plaushin, Voorhees began as a successfully crowdfunded short film. Upon shooting, it was realized that there was still so much more of the story left to tell, that the filmmakers launched another campaign to make the movie feature length.

Former Friday the 13th Stars Get Slaughtered in 13 Fanboy Trailer
Given her last name, you could say Deborah Voorhees was destined to have a career in horror movies. She became a favorite for fans of the genre beginning with her appearance in Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning back in 1985, which featured a scene of her character being stabbed through both eyes with a pair of garden shears. In recent years, Voorhees has been working on her own independent films under her Voorhees Films banner, and her next project will have fans of the franchise excited. Called 13 Fanboy, the indie flick will tell the story of an obsessed fan stalking the stars of the Friday the 13th movie series, killing them in similar ways their characters were murdered by Jason Voorhees (and Roy Burns) on screen.

Written and directed by Friday the 13th: A New Beginning star Debi Sue Voorhees, this film will have no official connection whatsoever
