  • Check out new shows like “Under the Bridge” this weekend.
  • Movies like “Late Night With the Devil” are newly streaming.
  • There’s also a new season of “The Circle” for reality fans.

Two of the best horror movies in recent memory are both available on streamers this weekend.

Alex Garland’s “Men,” which was released in theaters in 2022, is now on Max. “Late Night With the Devil,” in theaters earlier this year, is available on Shudder.

True crime fans also have a few options available. There’s “The Jinx: Part 2,” a continued look at the story of convicted killer Robert Durst, and “Under the Bridge,” a fictionalized drama about a real-life murder case.

And if none of those appeal to you, there’s also plenty of lighter fare to enjoy instead.

Here’s a complete rundown of all the best movies, shows, and documentaries to stream this weekend, broken down by what kind of entertainment you’re looking for.

True crime fans should tune into ‘The Jinx Part 2’Robert Durst in press footage featured in "The Jinx Part 2"Robert Durst in press footage featured in “The Jinx Part 2.”

Back in 2015, “The Jinx” gave us one of the most infamous hot mic moments of all time when its subject, suspected killer Robert Durst, inadvertently confessed to multiple murders while talking to himself during a bathroom break.

Nearly a decade later, filmmaker Andrew Jarecki found more story to tell in “Part 2,” which includes new interviews and prison calls with Durst before his death in 2022.

Oscar nominee Lily Gladstone stars as a police officer in this new drama about Reena Virk, a 14-year-old who was beaten and killed by a group of fellow teenagers. “Under the Bridge” is based on the nonfiction book of the same name by Rebecca Godfrey, which details the 1997 true story. Riley Keough costars as Godfrey.

Comedy lovers can watch ‘Conan O’Brien Must Go’Conan O'Brien in "Conan O'Brien Must Go"Conan O’Brien in “Conan O’Brien Must Go.”

Former late-night host Conan O’Brien has a new show out. The Max original travel series based on his podcast “Conan O’Brien Needs a Fan” sees the comedian traveling around the world and surprising his fans.

In the mood for a horror movie? Stream ‘Men’…Jessie Buckley as Harper in "Men"Jessie Buckley as Harper in “Men.”

“Men” was polarizing when it was released in 2022, but the eerie, unsettling horror flick is worth a watch if you can handle disturbing stuff.

Or if you just saw Alex Garland’s “Civil War” and simply want more Garland, that’s also a good reason to check this out (though be forewarned, the only real similarity between the two films is how inscrutable they both are).

Streaming on: Max

…or ‘Late Night With the Devil’Late Night with the DevilDavid Dastmalchian stars in “Late Night With the Devil.”

“Late Night With the Devil” caught flak for its use of AI imagery, which is a shame because it detracted from the fact that it’s one of the most entertaining and unique horror movies in years.

David Dastmalchian gives a perfect performance as a floundering late-night host mourning his dead wife and trying to save his show by any means possible — including, but not limited to, hosting a demon-possessed child.

Streaming on: Shudder or AMC+

For a mid-aughts delight, check out a full slate of vintage Bravo reality shows, like ‘NYC Prep’'NYC Prep' castThe “NYC Prep” cast consisted of high schoolers.

“NYC Prep,” Bravo’s controversial attempt to cash in on the “Gossip Girl” craze in 2009, almost seems like a fever dream instead of an actual reality show that once aired on television featuring real high schoolers. But alas, it was real, and now it’s available to stream.

So are a number of the network’s other long-gone reality shows, like “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak’s spinoff “Don’t Be Tardy,” “Shahs of Sunset,” and “Tabatha’s Salon Takeover,” which followed “Shear Genius” contestant Tabatha Coffey.
