The summertime is never a great period to find horror movies to stream on Netflix, with Halloween still so far away.
But maybe these July additions to Netflix will help.
It’s always nice to have another excuse to watch Big Trouble in Little China, and seeing it pop up on Netflix today is as good a reason as any. The rest of the options feel like slim pickings, but there are a couple of titles I haven’t seen yet that I do want to check out.
Below is the full list of horror (and horror-ish) titles coming to Netflix this month, along with their imdb synopses.
