The streaming service known as Peacock is asking its subscribers to “Boo-kle up” this spooky season. They have announced that their horror line-up is starting early and released a list of over 100 fright films to be carved into their programming starting September 1.
A lot of these films are probably re-watches for the majority of people, despite that they have a pretty impressive catalog. “Flicks like Get Out, Insidious: Chapter 3 and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Next Generation. Cuddle up for creepy classics like Psycho (‘60), The Birds (‘63), and Dracula (‘79). Binge complete freakish franchises like Chucky, SAW and Amityville or tune-in for fun family fare like The Mummy, Ghostbusters and Casper. No matter your terror tenor, consider Peacock your Halloween HQ.”
There are a few standouts for niche fans such as a selection of elusive Wes Craven underperformers; there’s Shocker (1989) and The People Under the Stairs (1991). For the modern set, James Wan is represented with his early works; Saw (2004), and the underrated Dead Silence (2007). Throw in some Hitchcock: Psycho (1960) and The Birds (1963), some Carpenter; The Thing (1982), Prince of Darkness (1987) and a little Universal Monsters, Frankenstein (1931), Curse of the Werewolf (1961), and you have a well-rounded meal of old and new(ish).
Below is their official list of films (an asterisk denotes an exclusive).

The Top Haunted Attractions You Need to See This Year!
Since haunted houses have existed, horror fans have taken on the pilgrimage to find the best ones around. Now there are so many amazing attractions it can be hard to narrow that list down. Luckily for you, we here at iHorror have taken some of that leg work out for you. Get ready to buy some plane tickets, we are going on a journey.
The 17th Door-Buena Park, California
Do you want to be scared out of your wits for over an hour? Then you need to check out the 17th Door. This isn’t your normal haunt and isn’t recommended for the faint of heart. The haunt utilizes live insects, water effects, and reality to scare its guests.
The 17th Door gets mixed reviews because of its more extreme approach. But for those who have become bored of the traditional jump scare, it’s the perfect way to spend an October evening.
Pennhurst Asylum-Spring City, Pennsylvania
Deep in the old woods of northern Chester County, lives the Pennhurst Asylum estate. Not only is this considered one of the best haunted attractions in the United States, but the grounds themselves are supposedly filled with the spirits of the dead.
This event is a massive undertaking. Taking haunt goers through several sprawling areas, eventually leading guests through the tunnels underneath Pennhurst Asylum. If you want to be truly haunted, take a trip to Pennsylvania and check out the Pennhurst Asylum.
13th Gate-Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Instead of just sticking with one theme, 13th Gate offers fans 13 different realms to adventure through. What really makes the haunt stand out is its emphasis on using hyperrealistic effects. Constantly keeping guests wondering if what they see is real or fake.
This haunt is one of the closest things a fan can get to being in a high production horror film, only you don’t get to know the script ahead of time. If you are looking for some sensory overload this spooky season, go check out the 13th Gate.
If you ever find yourself lost out in the woods in Chicago, you may stumble across the Hellsgate haunted attraction. This haunt features over 40 rooms with more than 150 live actors. Fans will start off in the haunted trails before eventually leading to Hellsgate Mansion.
My favorite part of this haunt is that after you have been scared witless, there is a cozy area set up for fans to relax. They have a bonfire, a movie screening area, and food and drinks. Who wouldn’t be hungry after outrunning the escaped undead convicts?
The Darkness-St. Louis, Missouri
If you are more of a fan of animatronics, then The Darkness is the haunt for you. This attraction has the largest collection of special effects, monsters, and animations in the country. They also have one of the best escape rooms of any haunted attractions around.
Not to mention that The Darkness’s parent company, Halloween Productions, builds haunted attractions for both clients and amusement parks. This level of professionalism sets them apart from their competition.
Honorable Mention-Hell’s Dungeon-Dayton, Ohio
This attraction is quickly becoming a rising star in the haunt world. It may lack the budget of some of its competitors, but it makes up for it with huge amounts of creativity and heart. Unlike many of the bigger name haunts out there, Hell’s Dungeon keeps its groups small and terrifying for a more intimate affair.
Each section of the haunt tells a story that overlaps with the main theme of the attraction. Because of its size, no square inch of the place is left undetailed or filled with filler content. Ohio is already the haunted house capital of the United States, so why not take a trip and experience the greatness that is Hell’s Dungeon?
5 Friday Fright Night Films: Horror Comedy [Friday Sept 22nd]
Horror can provide us with the best of both worlds and the worst, depending on the film. For your viewing pleasure this week, we have dug through the muck and grime of horror comedies to provide you with only the best that the subgenre has to offer. Hopefully they can get a few chuckles out of you, or at least a scream or two.
Trick ‘r Treat
Anthologies are a dime a dozen in the horror genre. It’s part of what makes the genre so wonderful, different writers can come together to make a Frankenstein’s Monster of a film. Trick ‘r Treat provides fans with a masterclass in what the subgenre can do.
Not only is this one of the best horror comedies out there, but it’s also centered around all of our favorite holiday, Halloween. If you really want to feel those October vibes flow through you, then go watch Trick ‘r Treat.
Now let’s move on to a film that fits in more meta horror than the entire Scream franchise put together. Scare Package takes every horror trope ever thought of and shoves it into one reasonably timed horror flick.
This horror comedy is so good that horror fans demanded a sequel so that they may continue to bask in the glory that is Rad Chad. If you want something with a whole lotta cheese this weekend, go watch Scare Package.
Cabin In the Woods
Speaking of horror cliches, where do they all come from? Well, according to Cabin in the Woods, it’s all ordained by some sort of Lovecraftian deity hell bent on destroying the planet. For some reason, it really wants to see some dead teenagers.
And honestly, who doesn’t want to see some horny college kids get sacrificed to an eldritch god? If you want a little more plot with your horror comedy, check out Cabin in the Woods.
Freaks of Nature
Here a film that features vampires, zombies, and aliens and still somehow manages to be great. Most films that try something that ambitious would fall flat, but not Freaks of Nature. This film is far better than it has any right to be.
What seems like a normal teenage horror flick quickly goes off the rails and never comes back. This film feels like the script was written as an ad lib yet somehow turned out perfectly. If you want to see a horror comedy that truly jumps the shark, go watch Freaks of Nature.
I have spent the past few years trying to decide if Detention is a good movie. I recommend it to every person that I meet but this film goes beyond my ability to categorize as good or bad. I will say this, every horror fan should see this film.
Detention takes the viewer to places they never wanted to go. Places they didn’t even know were possible. If that sounds like how you want to spend your Friday night, go watch Detention.
