All the Horror You Need to Stream in September 2022

Fall is just around the corner — so get those ooky spooky watchlists ready!
Horror Movies Streaming September

Welcome to Horrorscope, a monthly column keeping horror nerds and initiates up to date on all the horror content coming to and leaving from your favorite streaming services. Here’s what to watch in September 2022:

It’s September gang. And that means one thing and one thing only: we can truly let our freak flags fly. This is the time of year when we get to inundate our unassuming pals’ Letterboxd home pages with our five-star reviews of Castle Freak. This is the time of year when no one can bat an eye at you watching any messed-up double bill your heart desires (mine’s Angst and The Vanishing! What’s yours?).

But a solid Autumn of spooky movie-watching requires a certain degree of planning. And that’s where I come in. I’ve scoured streaming services far and wide to collate a master guide to all the horror coming and leaving this month. You’ve got plenty to look forward to with new collections, old classics, and brand-new bangers, so get those pencils out!

So all that said, be sure to peruse the complete list below, calendar in hand, for a full picture of what horror movies are coming and going from your favorite streaming services in September 2022. Keep in mind that all dates listed below may not apply to viewers outside the US.

September 2022 Horror Streaming Cheat Sheet

  • Make sure to check out both The Descent and its sequel at the end of the month on Paramount+ if you like clenching your butt for 90 minutes straight.
  • All three Psycho films plus the 1998 shot-for-shot remake hit Peacock on the 1st of the month. A smattering of horror anthologies will also be hitting the service, including Tales from the Hood and Demon Knight. (The Twilight franchise is also making an appearance on Peacock).
  • Prime Video subscribers can enjoy a cozy little double bill of 2003’s Cabin Fever and its 2009 sequel.
  • And action-horror-enjoyers rejoice, the Blade trilogy is hitting free-to-watch service Tubi this September.
  • And for you goofy goobers out there: three films in the Scary Movie franchise depart HBO Max this month … and there’s another leaving Hulu! Get those extinct pastiche laughs in while you can.
  • The new releases this month include: The Dustwalker (2020); Inheritance (2020); Tales from the Hood 3 (2020); We’re All Going To The World’s Fair (2021); When the Screaming Starts (2021); Nocturna Side A: The Great Old Man’s Night (2021); Saloum (2021); Hocus Pocus 2 (2022); Under Wraps 2 (2022); Morbius (2022); Katteri (2022); The Munsters (2022); Goodnight Mommy (2022); Firestarter (2022); My Best Friend’s Exorcism (2022); Snapper: The Man-Eating Turtle Movie That Never Got Made (2022); Who Invited Them (2022); Flux Gourmet (2022); Speak No Evil (2022); Raven’s Hollow (2022), and Sissy (2022). Check out the table below for which service these films will be on.

Horrorscope’s streaming service champion of the month is Peacock, which went absolutely balls-to-the-wall this September and added a whole Universal Monster mash to an already stacked list of new additions. Good work, lads.

Horrorscope’s streaming service dunce of the month is Freevee, which didn’t add a single horror flick to their line-up this month. Better luck next time, boys!

Horror Streaming Highlights for September 2022

Pick of the Month: We’re All Going To The World’s Fair (2021)

Synopsis: Locked away in the glow-in-the-dark din of her attic bedroom, teenager Casey becomes deeply invested in an online role-playing horror game that involves documenting the ensuing changes that may (or may not) be taking place. It’s time to take the World’s Fair Challenge. Losing herself between fantasy and reality, a mysterious individual reaches out after watching Casey’s videos, though his own motives are uncertain.

Part found-footage, part screen-life, We’re All Going to the World’s Fair kicked the door down at Sundance last year with its haunting ambiguity, chilling lead performance, and commitment to its own bit. A stomach-tightening slow-burn (hey, look at that, David Lowery was an executive producer!), Jane Schoenbrun‘s feature film debut signals them out as a director well worth keeping an eye on.

Available on HBO Max on September 1st.

A PG Rob Zombie Film? Can he even DO that?

Synopsis: Eldrich whispers (press releases) tell me that the premise of the new Munsters film will be a love story about the courtship of Herman and Lily and their ultimate move from Transylvania to the U.S. of A. Vague? Yes! But that’s all we’ve got, folks.

The phrase “Rob Zombie is making a PG-rated film” reeks of dark, arcane magic. What does that even look like? Well, if the teaser trailer is to be believed, it looks super adorable, fun, and colorful! Horror’s ultimate wife guy returns! The Munsters sees Sheri Moon Zombie in the role of Lily, Jeff Daniel Phillips (who also appeared in Zombie’s Halloween II and The Lords of Salem) in the role of Herman, and Daniel Roebuck (another frequent Zombie collaborator) in the role of The Count. Throw in some cameo appearances from the likes of Cassandra Peterson and Dee Wallace, and you’ve got yourself a grand old time in our books. Will it actually be good? Only time will tell. But the fact of the matter is that it looks like Zombie and company had a blast making it. And that kind of enthusiasm is contagious.

Available on Netflix on September 27th.

A new collection of films celebrating cinema’s marvelous mutants

Synopsis: A new, highly specific, and marvelously ridiculous collection of films is being showcased on ARROW this month. Titled “MUTANTS!” the collection will feature some of the foulest abominations horror cinema has to offer. These aren’t your daddy’s weirdos. This group of bizarre botched beasts is straight out of the back shelf of your local video store. Expect the unexpected (which is to say: limbs where there really should not be limbs!).

This menacing menagerie of freaky features includes the following films: Charles Band’s Head of the Family (1996), which includes maybe one of the greatest and least-appreciated performances in horror history via Jacqueline Lovell; Hideous! (1997), which tells of two rival collectors whose monstrosities don’t want to stay behind glass; Mutant War (1988), a direct-to-video post-apocalyptic fever dream that must be seen to be believed; Trapped Alive (1988), which, as its title suggests, sees our hapless would-be-survivors dropped into a mine shaft full of man-munching mutants, and finally: Creepozoids (1987) which takes place during World War III and stars Return of the Living Dead scream queen Linnea Quigley.

Available on ARROW September 2nd.

A massive documentary series on just how gay the horror genre is (very!)

Synopsis: Hannibal’s Bryan Fuller presents a four-part documentary series about how gay horror is … and always has been! From the genre’s literate origins to the turn-of-the-century drag parties that inspired Universal Monsters, the series looks back at the history (and future) of horror through a distinctly queer lens. 

From James Whale to Clive Barker, from subtext to paratext, horror has been a safe haven for queer expression across the ages. Queer folks get a lot out of horror. Which makes sense: the genre has been a safe harbor for weirdos and outcasts since time immemorial. So grab some popcorn. Schedule off your Fridays, And settle in for what promises to be one hell of a ride through the hallways of horror history.

Premieres on Shudder Friday, September 30th, with new episodes weekly.
