12 Horror Films (and Series) to Watch This Summer

There’s plenty to look forward to this summer, especially as public spaces like theaters reopen. This year, horror films (and series) are having a moment—and a slate of thrillers have made their way to our summer watch list. Even if you can’t make it out to the cinema for some of these spooky flicks, look no further than your streaming platforms like Hulu, Netflix, and HBO Max, which have a variety of spine-chilling shows and films to stream.

A Quiet Place Part II

The summer of horror started off not with a bang, but with a whimper: John Krasinski’s follow-up to the 2018 film that kicked off his career as a director of horror-thrillers is just as hushed as A Quiet Place, but with bigger stakes.
