Edgar Wright

While we patiently wait for his mind-bending horror flick Last Night in Soho to arrive on October 29, director Edgar Wright has selected 20 horror films on Peacock to keep us plenty scared in the meantime.

Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Baby Driver) took a deep dive into the Peacock and Universal Pictures vault to curate a list of scary flicks ranging from the 1930s all the way to the 2000s. There are legit classics of the genre, fan favorites from the 1970s and 1980s, and even a few deep cuts the most seasoned horror fans may have missed along the way. 

“Hey Peacock People! I picked 20 dark delights for you to enjoy this October; from Night of the Living Dead to Gremlins (and some cult classics sprung from the Uni vault), Wright said via Twitter. “So enjoy my curated list of 20 must-watch movies on Peacock this month.”

Check out the full list of horror films below, and click here to find the list already curated and ready to go on Peacock.

  • Dracula (1931)
  • Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
  • Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954)
  • The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957)
  • The Brides of Dracula (1960)
  • The Evil of Frankenstein (1964)
  • Night of the Living Dead (1968)
  • Frenzy (1972)
  • The Sentinel (1977)
  • American Werewolf in London (1981)
  • Videodrome (1983)
  • Gremlins (1984)
  • Dead Ringers (1988)
  • The Cook the Thief his Wife & Her Lover (1989)

When he’s not picking out the best of the best for Halloween movies, Wright has been busy prepping for the release of his newest film Last Night in Soho. The movie follows a young woman who finds herself jumping into the neon-lit, smoky, dangerous world of the 1960s every night when she falls asleep. But the past turns out to be a whole lot deadlier than she ever thought.

Critics say the film is a trippy “fever dream” and a love letter to the era, and it sounds like Wright absolutely nails the tone and vibe. Last Night in Soho opens October 29. In the meantime, those 20 horror flicks Wright loves are streaming now on Peacock.

SYFY and Peacock are both properties of NBCUniversal, a subsidiary of Comcast Corporation.
