The Month in Horror Releases: July

What an interesting year it has been for the movies (and so many other things). Horror seems to be thriving, however, thanks to the success of the VOD model and streaming platforms like Shudder continually pumping out new films week after week — you’ll notice a lot of this list is taken up by Shudder exclusives. July is shaping up to be another good one with some notable drops like the Dave Franco-directed The Rental with Dan Stevens and Alison Brie, Saint Maud is back (again), The Beach House, and much more. Take a look:
