Ten Noteworthy Horror Movies to Stream at Home in August 2023

Where has time gone? August is officially here, bringing with it a slew of new titles arriving on streaming. This month also edges us even closer to the Halloween season, which means you can expect the horror programming to start ramping up in earnest.

August offers brand new streaming exclusives and recent releases that’ll give you a chance to catch up on 2022 and 2023 horror.

Here are ten noteworthy horror titles available for streaming in August 2023 on some of the most popular streaming services, along with when/where you can watch them.

Ghastly BrothersSCREAMBOX

Ghastly Brothers Horror Streaming August 2023

It’s Ghostbusters meets Beetlejuice in this gateway horror comedy. In the SCREAMBOX exclusive, “Lilith is sent to boarding school where she meets the Ghastly brothers, a pair of strange ghost hunters. Together, they need to rid the school of the demons who have made it their home!”

Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead – Netflix (August 3)

Zom 100 Horror Streaming August 2023

Eiji Akaso as Akira in Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead

In this feature length manga adaptation, “Akira Tendo (Eiji Akaso) works at an exploitative company where he suffers endless hours and harassment from his boss. Spending more days feeling dead than alive, he awakes to discover his town has been devastated and overtaken by zombies and suddenly feels excited at the prospect of not needing to go to the office anymore.”

You had us at zombie shark.

Bones and All – Prime Video (August 8)

Bones and All cannibalism

Leave it to Suspiria director Luca Guadagnino and writer David Kajganich to spin an achingly tender and thoughtful coming-of-age romance between a pair of cannibals with an insatiable need to devour flesh. Bones and All, an adaptation of Camille DeAngelis‘s novel, uses the road trip format set in Reagan-era America as a provocative and macabre means of exploring the monstrous need for survival and human connection.

Enys Men – Hulu (August 9)

Enys Men

In the spring of 1973, The Volunteer (Mary Woodvine) spends each day on an uninhabited island of the British coast adhering to a specific routine. However, as the April days approach May, The Volunteer’s monotony gets upended by strange visions that increase with haunting regularity. The old, familiar adage defining insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result feels at home in writer/director Mark Jenkin’s abstract folk horror feature. 

The Communion Girl – Shudder (August 11)

The Communion Girl Horror Streaming August 2023

A Shudder Exclusive from director Victor Garcia (Return to House on Haunted Hill). “Spain, late 1980s. Newcomer Sara (Carla Campra) tries to fit in with the other teens in this tight-knit small town in the province of Tarragona. If only she were more like her extroverted best friend, Rebe (Aina QuiƱones).They go out one night to a nightclub and on the way home they come upon a little girl holding a doll, dressed for her first communion. And that’s when the nightmare begins.”

Cocaine Bear – Prime Video (August 15)

Cocaine Bear and Keri Russell

A title like Cocaine Bear speaks for itself. It sums up the premise, but perhaps more importantly, it suggests an outrageous tone with energy to match. While drawing from the 1985 true crime account that left cocaine scattered across the wilderness and both a bear and the drug smuggler responsible dead, Cocaine Bear finds highly entertaining ways to fill in those story gaps with glorious violence, humor, and an incisive depiction of humanity at its best and worst.

Bad Things – Shudder (August 18)

Bad Things Review

Writer/Director Stewart Thorndike’s 2014 film Lyle introduced a contemporary riff on Rosemary’s Baby. Thorndike’s latest, Bad Things, continues the filmmaker’s horror explorations of motherhood, this time through the lens of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. “Glow” actor Gayle Rankin leads this snowy hotel weekend getaway with friends that devolves into a psychological tailspin and ends in a bloody nightmare.

Subject – SCREAMBOX (August 22)


From award-winning director Tristan Barr (Good Times), Subject follows a man ensnared in a sinister government experiment. 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.

Organ Trail – Paramount+ (August 24)

Organ Trail movie trailer

The horror western from Drop Dead Gorgeous director Michael Patrick Jann heads to Paramount+ later this month. “Abigale and her family fall victim to a ruthless gang while making their way across the Oregon Trail. As the only survivor, she will do whatever it takes to retrieve her one earthly possession, her family’s horse, from the clutches of the bloodthirsty bandits.”

RoboDoc: The Creation of RoboCop – SCREAMBOX (August 29)

RoboDoc Peter Weller

Five years in the making, the RoboDoc: The Creation of RoboCop docuseries takes an in-depth look into the creation of the groundbreaking franchise and features new interviews with cast and crew, including Hollywood icons such as Peter Weller, Diane Robin, Ronny Cox, Nancy Allen, Ray Wise, director Paul Verhoeven & more. I’d buy that for a dollar!

Bonus: Virtually Heroes – Crackle (August 1)

Virtually Heroes streaming in August

This Crackle exclusive unleashes the “lost” Roger Corman action comedy Virtually Heroes starring Mark Hamill (Star Wars), Rob Baker (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), Brent Chase (Bosch), and Katie Savoy (Sequestered). The film premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and afterward disappeared until acquired by Screen Media and given a limited theatrical and TVOD release late last year. The plot follows “two self-aware characters in a ‘Call of Duty’ style video game struggle with their screwy, frustrating existence.”
