August is upon us, and Netflix has just added another bunch of excellent horror titles. Some of these came at the end of July, and some arrived to streaming this week. Here are your 10 “must see” horror items on Netflix for the month of August.
THEY’RE WATCHING (2016)
Though it had a very quiet release, this one is starting to build some hype. In this quirky horror comedy, a home improvement reality show takes a strange turn when the town begins warning the show’s crew of ancient superstitions and local witches.
This epic New Zealand horror comedy hit Netflix in July, and if you haven’t watched it yet, put this at the top of your viewing list. Two young metal heads accidentally summon an evil demon.
A Blumhouse Tilt project, this anthology features a horror story from each of the major holidays.
FINAL DESTINATION 3 (2006)
This is one of my favorite installments of the FINAL DESTINATION franchise! Roller coasters and tanning beds!
SLEEPY HOLLOW (1999)(Cover Photo)
Tim Burton’s SLEEPY HOLLOW arrived on Netflix just a few days ago. Time to take a trip back to the haunted town and its notorious Headless Horseman.
SWEET HOME (2015)
This Spanish horror film is a siege/slasher style flick that centers around a young couple in an apartment building.
THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (2003)
This Michael Bay produced TCM reboot was the start of many Platinum Dunes remakes. Though met with mixed reviews, a number of horror fans love this one. It could be worth revisiting.
PENNY DREADFUL (2015)
In this Showtime TV show, multiple classic horror tropes merge into a wild Victorian tale. The first two seasons are now available for streaming.
THE INVITATION (2016)
This one arrived mid July, but I can’t give it enough high praise. A group of friends gather for what seems like a nice dinner party, but something is slightly off about the hosts.
And coming on August 25-
THE ROAD (2009)
In a post-apocalyptic world, a man and his son travel a desolate landscape in hopes of survival. Though not 100% true horror, this on is definitely terrifying and has some very bleak horror-driven tones.
