August 22, 2023 – These 6 Brand New Horror Movies Released Today

Remember how we mentioned that last week was a bit of a “calm before the storm” situation, as we get closer to the Halloween season and its nonstop onslaught of fresh horror movies?

That orange wave has arrived, and it won’t be slowing down until October 31. In fact, there are so many new releases this week that we’re going to break them up into separate days.

Here’s all the new horror that just released for August 22, 2023!

For daily reminders about new horror releases, be sure to follow @HorrorCalendar.


Cinephobia Releasing brings Dane Elcar‘s acclaimed sci-fi thriller Brightwood home today, a time loop horror movie that’s now available on all your favorite VOD outlets.

The indie horror movie centers on a married couple at the end of their rope, and that’s before they get trapped into a loop with a hooded killer in the woods.

In Brightwood, “Jen and Dan’s marriage is on the rocks with Jen seriously thinking about ending it for good. But when the pair go on a jog around a local pond in an attempt to hash things out, they find themselves running in circles as the exit trail vanishes and they repeatedly return to the same spot.

“Being stuck together in an endless loop would be bad enough, but when a silent hooded killer appears and starts tracking them down, the couple must figure out how to survive — together or apart.”

Written and directed by Dane Elcar, the film stars Dana Berger and Max Woertendyke.

In his recap of this year’s Salem Horror Fest, Alex DiVincenzo said of Brightwood, “Like The Twilight Zone meets Timecrimes with a hint of Blair Witch, the rousing premise is bolstered by character turmoil, although it could have used more answers by the end. With a cast of two entirely outside in daylight, writer-director Dane Elcar makes his feature debut with the clever indie production for the pandemic, based on his 2018 short The Pond.”


SCREAMBOX‘s massive August lineup continues with the mind-bending Australian creature feature Subject, which follows a man ensnared in a sinister government experiment.

Subject is now streaming only on the BD-powered SCREAMBOX! The SCREAMBOX Original hails from award-winning director Tristan Barr (Good Times).

In the film, “On his way to prison, Willem is presented with an intriguing offer: take part in a shadowy government experiment and have his sentence commuted.

“But little does he know his isolation experiment may not be what it seems, casting doubt upon his perceived solitude and raising questions about his true state of aloneness.”

Start screaming now with SCREAMBOX on iOS, Android, Apple TV, Prime Video, Roku, YouTube TV, Samsung, Comcast, Cox, Philo, and

The Entity trailer

Death is only the beginning in The Entity. In the Filipino horror film, which is now available on VOD outlets, a family must contend with demonic forces after a tragic death.

In the film, “A family is haunted by what appears to be the ghost of their youngest daughter. Now they must try to figure out why she is trying to communicate with them and if it’s really her.”

The horror film by Filipino director Erik Matti (“Folklore“), who co-wrote the script with Katski Flores, stars Sharon Cuneta as the family matriach. The Entity, also titled Kuwaresma, marks Filipino star Cuneta’s first foray into horror.

John Arcilla (The Bourne Legacy) also stars alongside sibling actors Kent Gonzales (“Gen Z”) and Pam Gonzales.

Beauty and the Beast horror

Now available from Level 33 Entertainment is the horror movie Belle, a brand new reimagining of the classic tale of Beauty and the Beast that just hit VOD outlets today.

In the horror movie spin on the iconic story, written and directed by Max Gold (“Surfer’s Paradise,” “Silicon Beach,” “Classic of Changes”), “Belle would do anything to save her ailing father so she journeys in search of a mythical rose believed to be a cure. As payment for the rose, Belle must surrender herself to a vicious beast and battle his spell.”

A group of friends, while on a Christmas vacation to their family cabin in Southern Oregon, learn of a local rumor of an antisocial woman who allegedly murders people and feeds her victims to pigs in Piglady, which was also released onto VOD outlets today.

The film from Gravitas Ventures is loosely inspired by the Susan Monica Murders, and a majority of the film was shot on the property adjacent to where the actual events took place, and where human remains were found eaten by her pigs.

Sandra Dee Tryon, Adam Ray Fair, Karri Davis, Liam Samuel Watkins, Alicia Karami, Lazarus Tate, Jeffery Hunter, and Shyvhan Storm star in Piglady.

It was written and directed by Adam Ray Fair and co-directed by Lyon Mitchell. The screenplay is by Adam Ray Fair and Alex C Johnson, and the film was produced by Alex C Johnson.


Metalocalypse: Army of the Doomstar brings the heaviest metal band ever created back together again for an action-packed journey. The long-awaited return of Adult Swim’s favorite heavy metal adventure arrives with an all-new, full-length animated movie, on Digital now.

“The all-new animated movie begins after the heroic rescue of Toki Wartooth; Dethklok frontman Nathan Explosion finds himself traumatized in a BRUTAL professional and romantic flat-spin, all while he is tasked with fulfilling the prophecy and confronting the ultimate songwriting challenge to save the planet. Can Nathan Explosion look beyond his brutally damaged ego to save his band, stop the Metalocalypse, and finally face the ultimate evil: Salacia?”

Dethklok’s highly anticipated Dethalbum IV, which includes all new original Dethklok songs, also released today, in conjunction with the brand new movie.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
