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?
