OK, I see you, Peacock! You are obviously getting horror fans all warmed up for the Halloween season, what with the more than 100 horror additions that will be streaming in September!

That’s right, Peacock is getting an early start for spooky season by rolling out tons of great horror on September 1. And if that wasn’t enough scary content, they are adding a full roster of classic horror classics from the 1930s through the early 1960s.

Buckle up and put on your reading glasses; due to the sheer number of films Peacock has added for September, I won’t be going into detail for each of them. I will, however, make brief notes on a few of my personal favorites. Ready, set, go!

September 1:

Amityville II: The Possession
Amityville 3-D
The Amityville Harvest

The Amityville Moon
Amityville: The Awakening

Peacock September schedule includes The Birds.

The Birds – One of my earliest horror memories is watching this Alfred Hitchcock film on television when I was about five years old. I was terrified, but I couldn’t stop watching…and it gave me nightmares.
The Bone Collector  
Bride of Chucky
Casper: A Spirited Beginning  
Casper’s Scare School
Child’s Play 2
Child’s Play 3
Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant  
Curse of Chucky  
Cult of Chucky  
Cut, Color, Murder
Dawn of the Dead – This 2004 film is the perfect example of how a remake should be done. Although the 1978 original is iconic, Zack Snyder’s re-imagining is just as iconic in its own, action-packed, fast-paced way.
The Dead Don’t Die
Dead Silence – In my opinion, this James Wan / Leigh Whannell film is vastly underrated. It’s genuinely spooky, and perfect to watch in the winter time.
The Frighteners – One of my favorites, this one features Michael J. Fox, Dee Wallace Stone, Jeffrey Combs and alternates between horror and comedy with a dash of emotional content as well.
The Funhouse – Another underrated horror film, this 1981 slasher was directed by the great Tobe Hooper.
Get Out
Ghostbusters II

The Grudge 2, 2006 
The Grudge 3, 2009 
Halloween II  
Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Hollow Man 2
Insidious: Chapter 3  
The Last Exorcism
Monster High: 13 Wishes
Monster High: Freaky Fusion
Monster High: Boo York, Boo York 
Monster High: Haunted
The Mummy, 1999

Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

Murder, She Baked
Patient Zero
The People Under the Stairs

Psycho – You can’t really consider yourself a horror fan if you haven’t seen this 1960 classic. Powered by the performance of Anthony Perkins, it’s a genuinely frightening movie that is still mimicked to this day.
Psycho II – Good call by Peacock adding this way-above average sequel that brings back Anthony Perkins as sympathetic killer Norman Bates.
Psycho III
Psycho 1998  
Pumpkin Pie War
The Purge: Anarchy
Saw – No matter how you feel about the sequels, the original Saw is must-see viewing. Anyone who saw this in theatres on its original release is lying if they say they figured out the jaw-dropping twist.
Saw 2 
Saw 3
Saw 4
Saw 5 
Saw 6
Saw: The Final Chapter
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
The Serpent and the Rainbow – Bill Pullman starred in this intriguing, bizarre story involving a Haitian drug that can turn victims into zombies.
Skeleton Key
Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight
Tales from the Crypt: Bordello of Blood
Tales From the Hood

Tales From the Hood 2
Texas Chainsaw Massacre  
They Live
The Thing – I re-watched this 1980s Kurt Russell classic recently, and it really does hold up. Great story, great actors and great horror effects make it a standout.
The Thing 2011  
Village of the Damned 
The Visit – M. Night Shyamalan created an effective, slightly uncomfortable film with this one, which features a couple of kids who think they are staying with their grandparents.
The Wolfman
