From the Vault: As the streaming space keeps growing, massive studio catalogs are becoming more and more available. These include lost and forgotten gems, so-bad-it’s-good duds, and just plain weird pieces of film history. And you probably won’t find them by waiting for streamers to put them in front of you. In From the Vault, Android Authority aims to rescue these titles from the algorithm graveyard and help you get more out of your streaming subscriptions.

Suburbia has been a popular target of Hollywood for nearly half a century. Movies like The Stepford Wives, Blue Velvet, and Pleasantville have offered some of our definitive reference points for American suburbs, not to mention early sitcoms like I Love Lucy, Leave It to Beaver, and The Honeymooners. But the nearly-forgotten 1989 comedy The Burbs deserves a spot high up on the list, and luckily you can watch it on Peacock.
