The Month in Horror Releases: September

No theaters? No problem. I’ve said this before, but I think it’s worth repeating — horror, more than any other genre, seems to be thriving during these times when a theatrical release is few and far between (if at all). I think a large part of that is because the genre embraced the VOD format years ago — most of the year’s best horror films were VOD releases — so it’s not at all surprising to see a line-up like September’s, which offers all sorts of fantastic films… all of which you can watch from home. There’s a lot to be excited about this month, so let’s dig in:

Then one day, Egor, returning home, finds no trace of either the nanny or the little sister, and the parents are in a strange trance and do not even remember that they had a daughter.
