Over 20 New Horror Movies and Shows Releasing in August 2021!

Autumn may be around the corner, but the summer isn’t going to end without a bang. August is packing a great variety of horror, covering every nightmare one can imagine.

Neil Blomkamp of District 9 and Elysium returns with his next feature, Demonic. A young woman seeks to understand unsettling details about her distant mother by entering a simulation – only to accidently unleash horrifying demons. Demonic not only looks to be another venture into Blomkamp’s sci-fi genius, but an unnerving work of horror. The film releases in theatres August 20th, as well as on Digital and VOD.

‘The Night House’

Based on the short story Jerusalem’s Lot by Stephen King, Chapelwaite features Adrian Brody in a chilling mystery drama. After losing his wife, a captain takes his family to a small Maine town where they find themselves threatened by a presence not of this world. You can find the show on Epix starting August 22nd.

Also on August 22nd, AMC kicks off the eleventh and final season of “The Walking Dead.” The long-running series will be ending with an expanded two-year eleventh season that will span 24 episodes, bringing the hit zombie series to an end sometime in 2022.

Ahead of the second season, anime film The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf comes to Netflix on August 23rd. “Before Geralt, there was his mentor Vesemir — a swashbuckling young witcher who escaped a life of poverty to slay monsters for coins. But when a strange new monster begins terrorizing a politically fraught kingdom, Vesemir finds himself on a frightening adventure that forces him to confront the demons of his past.”

American Horror Story: Double Feature looks to spice up the formula for the series, offering its story in two parts. Part one is titled Red Tide, with Part two titled Death Valley. The recent trailer provides some hints as to what to expect – shark people and aliens it seems – but not much as far as actual plot details. That said, the two-part concept as separate creature features looks intriguing as hell! The show kicks off August 25th on FX (each episode to then appear on Hulu the following day).

“American Horror Story: Double Feature”

The next day, Shudder unleashes new original body-horror movie Mosquito State on August 26th. “Isolated in his austere penthouse overlooking Central Park, obsessive Wall Street data analyst Richard Boca (Beau Knapp) sees ominous patterns: His computer models are behaving erratically, as are the swarms of mosquitos breeding in his apartment, an infestation that attends his psychological meltdown.”

One man must go through absolute hell to save his terminally ill daughter. Vicious self-mutilation, hitmen and demonic forces make for the horrors that audiences will experience in Behemoth when it hits Digital August 27th.

And of course, the month of horror ends on a high note with Nia DaCosta’s Candyman, finally coming to theaters on August 27th. This “spiritual sequel” to the original classic was co-written by Jordan Peele, and it’s set to give rise to a whole new Candyman. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman) stars in the new movie as Anthony McCoy (that name should sound familiar to fans of the original classic, we’ll say that much), who investigates the legend of Candyman and seems to find himself becoming the latest central figure in the mythology.
