It's a brand new month, and with it comes new horror content on Peacock. On June 28, the streamer unveiled its complete list of new shows and movies coming to its platform in July 2024, and we couldn't help but notice that many horror films were included.

Most of the horror movies on the list were released on July 1, but we thought we'd share them anyway, just in case you missed them. In addition, we shared two more horror flicks that are slated to be released at the end of the month.

The Wailing takes place in a small rural village in South Korea that's been plagued with a series of mysterious and violent deaths and illnesses following the arrival of a mysterious Japanese man. Officer Jong-Goo is then pulled into the investigation when his own daughter comes down with the strange illness. In order to save her, the policeman must quickly solve the mystery of what's causing the sickness before it's too late.

Burning (2018)

Cast: Yoo Ah-in, Steven Yeun, Jeon Jong-seo

Technically, Burning is a thriller film, but we still added it to the list because we believe it's a movie that horror fans will enjoy. When young aspiring writer Lee Jong-su bumps into a former childhood acquaintance, Shin Hae-mi, he's happy to be reconnected. But when Hae-mi suddenly goes missing, he suspects that her new friend, who has a strange hobby of burning down abandoned greenhouses, has something to do with her disappearance.
