Knock at the Cabin 1920x1080

Who says horror has to be for Halloween? If you’re looking for a summer with a chill down your spine, look no further than Peacock’s Summer Scares collection, a curated selection of horror movies. From newer releases like M. Night Shyamalan's A Knock at the Cabin, to all-time classics like Night of the Living Dead, and exclusive Originals like John Carpenter’s Suburban Screams, Peacock’s wide horror library is sure to keep you screaming the whole summer.  

Stream these 9 scary films from the Summer Scares collection. 

1. Get Out  

Get Out

The winner of the Oscar® for Best Original Screenplay, this modern horror masterpiece is bitingly satirical and deathly scary. The film follows Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) who heads upstate to stay with the liberal family of his new girlfriend, Rose (Alison Williams), but their over-accommodating colorblindness conceals something deeply disturbing.

2. Dead Ringers 

Dead Ringers

From the king of body horror, David Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers is a psychological thriller that follows identical twin gynecologists, both played by Jeremy Irons, who exploit their indistinguishable appearances to seduce their patients. When they both fall for the same woman, the lives of all three rapidly descend into madness.

3. Donnie Darko: The Director's Cut 

Donnie Darko

When troubled teenager Donnie Darko sleepwalks out of his house one night, he encounters a giant, evil-looking rabbit named Frank who tells him the world will soon end. When he returns home, he finds a jet engine has crashed into his bedroom, but no plane has flown by. Starring real-life siblings Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, Donnie Darko is part coming-of-age story, and part mind-blowing time travel sci-fi, and the director’s cut on Peacock delves more into the lore that has captivated audiences for over 20 years.

4. Freaky 

When a high school girl (Katheryn Newton) accidentally swaps bodies with a notorious serial killer (Vince Vaughn), she has just 24 hours to reverse the curse before the change becomes permanent. As she races against the clock to regain her own body, she discovers unexpected strengths and allies in her fight against the ruthless murderer now inhabiting her teenage self.

5. M3gan 

@peacock The gallop was CRAZY 🫣 #M3GAN is streaming now on Peacock. #MovieClips #HorrorFilm ♬ Peacock_M3GAN_BestM3GANMoments - Peacock

Every summer begins with Pride Month, and what better way to celebrate than with queer icon M3gan. This instant camp classic — which effortlessly blends horror and humor — follows a brilliant roboticist (Allison Williams) who becomes the unexpected caretaker of her eight-year-old niece. To keep her entertained, she decides to give the girl a prototype of a robotic AI doll she’s been developing, a decision that leads to deathly consequences.

6. Lisa Frankenstein  

@peacock It's always the self proclaimed I.P.s 🙄 #LisaFrankenstein is streaming now on Peacock. #MovieClips #CarlaGugino #KathrynNewton #Janet ♬ Peacock_LisaFrankenstein_IP - Peacock

Lisa Frankenstein is a coming-of-rage horror-comedy about a misunderstood teenage goth girl (Kathryn Newton) and her high school crush (Cole Sprouse), who just so happens to be a reanimated Victorian-era corpse. From Academy Award®-winning writer Diablo Cody, the movie is a fun and freaky homage to ‘80s-era horror cult classics.

7. Cabin In the Woods 

The Cabin In The Woods

We can’t say all that much about this twisty film without giving anything away, but it follows five young co-eds (including Chris Hemsworth) who head to a secluded cabin where things get murderous. We know that sounds like the plot of every slasher movie, but we promise this is far from it. Meta and hilarious (while still being scary), The Cabin in the Woods is a high-concept parody of slasher films (while still being a slasher film).   

Stream The Cabin in the Woods.  

8. Jennifers’ body  

“You’re killing people!” “No, I’m killing boys.”  

Jennifer’s Body follows a high school cheerleader who, after being possessed by a demon, kills and devours her male classmates. Criminally underappreciated when it premiered in 2009, the comedy-horror revenge film has grown to become a true feminist cult classic.  

Stream Jennifer’s Body. 

9. Texas Chain Saw Massacre 

Scariest Movies on Peacock

Considered the original slasher film, this 1974 classic leaves most of its blood and gore to the imagination, but, still, the roar of Leatherface’s terrifying chainsaw is enough to send a chill down anyone’s spine. Inspired by true events, the movie follows a group of friends who fight for their survival after encountering a family of killers in the rural Texas countryside. 

Stream Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
