The July schedule for SCREAMBOX has a little of everything, including horror both new and beloved, and some insightful documentaries as well.

Here are the new additions coming to SCREAMBOX this month:

We Might Hurt Each Other (July 11) – This SCREAMBOX Original is Lithuania’s very first slasher film, and it pays homage to “classic” slashers. A group of Lithuanian teens just want to have a party to celebrate their graduation. When their original venue plan falls through, they choose to party at a remote cabin surrounded by strange statues. We know the cabin in the woods trope by now – a masked killer shows up.

Shoky & Morthy: Last Big Thing (SCREAMBOX Exclusive) – In this horror comedy, two YouTubers find their popularity waning, and plan a “killer comeback.”

Repulse (SCREAMBOX Exclusive) – This Czech film brings to mind brutal films such as The Hills Have Eyes, telling the story of two families whose lives intersect. There is very little dialogue, forcing the viewer to observe the violence and try to make sense of it.

Elvira’s Haunted Hills – Elvira’s 2001 horror comedy sees Cassandra Peterson’s character travelling in 1851 Romania. It turns out that Elvira greatly resembles the deceased lady of Castle Hellsubus. It’s a fun romp, and was actually filmed in Transylvania. Also included on SCREAMBOX this month are 13 Nights of Elvira and more than10 episodes of Elvira’s Movie Macabre.

Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street – Originally released in 2019, this documentary revisits A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. Young actor Mark Patton thought he was getting his big break in the sequel, but instead found himself the subject of jokes and ridicule as audiences picked up on the homoeroticism that was evident in the film. The doc looks at Patton’s life, as he struggled to deal with the backlash as well as the fact that he was a closeted homosexual at the time.

The Ninth ConfigurationThe Exorcist author William Peter Blatty made his directorial debut with this 1980 film. It’s based on his own novel Twinkle, Twinkle, Killer Kane, and tells the story of a former marine assigned to run a mental asylum housed in a castle.

Wish Upon – A retelling of The Monkey’s Paw, Wish Upon stars Joey King as teenager Clare, who is given a magic music box. The box will grant her seven wishes, but for each wish granted, someone she cares about must die.

The Blood on Satan’s Claw – In 18th century England, a farmer finds a deformed skull buried on his property. Soon thereafter, the young people in the village begin to fall under the influence of a demon.

Tideland – Terry Gilliam co-wrote and directed this fantasy film, featuring a young girl left at a disintegrating country estate. All alone, the girl finds solace in her imagination.

The Awakening – Rebeca Hall (The Night House, Resurrection) is Florence, a ghost hunter / writer in post-World War I England who sets out to investigate a haunted boarding school.

Spookies – In this low-budget cult film, some teens looking to party happen upon an old abandoned mansion. The party is pretty much ruined when they discover they are trapped in the house, and a warlock is preparing to sacrifice all of them.

Sorority House Massacre – Released in 1986, this is the rare 80s film directed and written by a woman. Beth joins a college sorority, not knowing that she actually lived in the sorority house when she was a child. Her brother killed the rest of her family there, and as she begins to have nightmares about the event, he escapes the mental institution to come after her.

The Brain – Dr. Blakely is the host of television show Independent Thinkers, and his viewers look at his philosophy as some sort of self-help group. A high schooler starts to suspect that something is wrong, and rightly so; as it turns out, Blakely is controlling his followers by use of an alien organism.

Night Train to Terror – In this 1985 anthology film, three stories are presented, framed by a story of God and Satan debating the possible fates of the characters. The stories are The Case of Harry Billings, The Case of Gretta Conners and The Case of Claire Hansen.

Hard Rock Zombies – Fans of comedy-horror should enjoy this 1985 film, the tale of a heavy metal band that performs in a town that has outlawed rock and roll. They are killed by a nazi cult, but come back to seek revenge by performing an original song that turns people into zombies.
