The Month in Horror Releases: July

While we might be right in the middle of summer now that July is here, a month that typically doesn’t offer much horror, we still have plenty to look forward to. And while most of these releases you’ve likely never heard of, that doesn’t mean they aren’t worth getting excited for. We have a bunch of indie releases landing on VOD that look quite promising, especially Dead Night and The Night Eats the World, but there’s also a couple of films hitting theaters that you might want to check out. Horror in July has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

    1. It seems like a genre that has been around, but with little attention. Lately, however, I’m starting to see more and more thrillers with a tech angle to them, so it’s certainly a thing!

  1. Kinda, obvious, but I’m keen for the new Unfriended and Purge instalments. Unfriended was a hugely positive surprise so keen to see where they go with it. Purge prequel is kind of the least interesting they could have done with that series, but I really dig that franchise.

    1. To my surprise, I’ve heard some great things about both Unfriended films. I just can’t get past the quasi-found footage element.

      1. The first one was interesting. I absolutely loved it on first viewing (made my top 10 this year). Rewatched not so long ago and whilst I still liked it, I’d cooled on it a lot. But it’s a cool concept and they stick to it super well.
