Tubi is going all out this summer with their July horror schedule, including the addition of two new originals and some summer staples. Fans of Child’s Play and Jaws will be thrilled to know that Tubi is adding several of the sequels for both franchise films.

Aliens, Abductions and UFOs: Roswell at 75 (Tubi Original, available 7/9) – In observance of the 75th anniversary of the supposed UFO incident just outside of Roswell, New Mexico, Tubi is bringing us this two-hour documentary. The doc will take a deep dive into our obsession with aliens, as well as explore the Area 51 theories and interview eyewitnesses, scientists and people who claim to have been abducted by aliens.

Eradication (Tubi Original, 7/15) – A deadly disease has killed off much of the population of earth, and a man is being studied due to his supposed immunity to the disease. Isolated from his family, the man breaks quarantine and finds himself fighting off the infected and being hunted down by a mysterious agency.

Child’s Play 2 – Set two years after the events that took place in Child’s Play, this direct sequel has the evil Chucky going after poor little Andy, now in foster care. Aided by his foster sister Kyle, Andy must defeat Chucky to save his own life. After watching this one, you can also find Child’s Play 3, Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky, Curse of Chucky and Cult of Chucky on Tubi this month.

Damien – Omen II – After the deaths of his parents, Damien (A/K/A The Antichrist) is sent to live with his Aunt, Uncle and cousin Mark. Chaos ensues, and Damien eventually comes to realize what he really is.

Exorcist II: The Heretic – Linda Blair returns as Regan, now 16 years old and still recovering from her demonic possession. A priest is sent to investigate the death of Father Marrin, and he has a run-in with Pazuzu.

Ex Machina (7/26) – A programmer develops romantic feelings for a fembot he has been asked by his friend to observe. Though it appears that she also has feelings for him, can he really trust her?

Insidious – When Josh and Renai’s young son Dalton falls into a mysterious coma, the family begins to experience supernatural activity in their home. The truth, as they find out, goes much deeper than a simple ghost, and Josh must venture into “The Further” to save his family.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) – When a race of alien creatures escape their own dying planet, they travel to earth, taking the form of flowers. Soon, they begin to replicate humans, and it’s up to Elizabeth, Matthew and Nancy to save planet earth.

Tubi brings us the most iconic summer franchise of them all.

Jaws – Watching the story of Sheriff Martin Brody’s attempt to save Amity Island from a massive shark is a summer rite of passage. The only thing better than observing Brody (Roy Scheider), marine biologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and shark hunter Quint (Robert Shaw) set out on a too-small boat is being able to watch Jaws 2, Jaws 3-D and Jaws: The Revenge immediately afterwards. Thanks to Tubi, you can!

John Carpenter’s Ghosts of Mars – In the future, Mars has been transformed to an earth-like planet. When Police Officer Melanie Ballard returns from a botched mission to capture a criminal at a remote mining outpost, she is the only survivor.

Land of the Dead – The fourth installment in Romero’s Living Dead series of films, this one is set in Pittsburgh, which is now a sanctuary for survivors of the zombie apocalypse. Much of the population lives in squalor, but the rich and powerful continue to live lives of luxury within a high-rise.

My Soul to Take – Wes Craven’s 2010 slasher film features Raul Esparza as a serial killer who doesn’t know he is a serial killer. It seems he has multiple personalities, and on the day of his death, seven children are born. Each of these children ends up with the traits of the killer’s different personalities.

The Omen (1976) – American diplomat Robert Thorn’s wife Kathy gives birth to a dead child in Rome, and he agrees to secretly adopt a different baby, not telling her that their biological child is dead. When the child, named Damien, is five years old, some frightening things begin happening, culminating in Robert’s realization that his adopted son is the Antichrist.

Tusk (7/19) – The less you know going into Kevin Smith’s disturbing horror film, the better. Wallace (Justin Long) is imprisoned by a man named Howard, who performs mutilations on him in order to transform him into a walrus named Mr. Tusk.

Slender Man – Four friends make the incredibly stupid decision to summon the Slender Man, a creepypasta legend. Three of the friends do this more of less as a joke, but the fourth was dead serious about the attempt, since she wants to escape her unhappy life.
