Horror movies hitting Netflix this July

I've said it plenty of times before and I'm sure that I will say it again plenty of times in the future, but Netflix is kind of a barren landscape when it comes to (quality) horror movies. That said, I know that I seem to find myself constantly scrolling through the horror section of my account looking for new films to watch on a rainy afternoon. And thus we wanted to make sure to share with you guys today a list of all the horror movies set to hit Netflix this July.

It's not a bad selection to be honest, with such quality flicks as Wes Craven's SCREAM 4, SCOOBY-DOO and SCOOBY-DOO 2: MONSTERS UNLEASHED (for the kiddos), INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE, and the JURASSIC PARK trilogy to boot. On top of that, it looks like Ben Young's (HOUNDS OF LOVE) delayed alien-invasion flick EXTINCTION starring Michael Pena and Lizzy Caplan will finally be available to the public on July 15th.

You can check out the full list of horror movies coming to Netflix in July below. And then make sure to start adding them to your queue. Enjoy!

July 1

INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE

Born as an 18th-century lord, Louis (Brad Pitt) is now a bicentennial vampire, telling his story to an eager biographer (Christian Slater). Suicidal after the death of his family, he meets Lestat (Tom Cruise), a vampire who persuades him to choose immortality over death and become his companion. Eventually, gentle Louis resolves to leave his violent maker, but Lestat guilts him into staying by turning a young girl (Kirsten Dunst) -- whose addition to the "family" breeds even more conflict.

JURASSIC PARK

In Steven Spielberg's massive blockbuster, paleontologists Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) and mathematician Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) are among a select group chosen to tour an island theme park populated by dinosaurs created from prehistoric DNA. While the park's mastermind, billionaire John Hammond (Richard Attenborough), assures everyone that the facility is safe, they find out otherwise when various ferocious predators break free and go on the hunt.

THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK

John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) summons chaos theorist Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) to his home with some startling information -- while nearly everything at his Jurassic Park had been destroyed, his engineers happened to have a second site, where other dinosaurs were kept in hiding. It seems the dinosaurs on the second island are alive and well and even breeding; and Hammond wants Malcolm to observe and document the reptiles before Hammond's financiers can get to them.

JURASSIC PARK III 

After being persuaded by a wealthy businessman to conduct an aerial tour of Isla Sorna, InGen's second site for a failed Jurassic Park experiment, Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) discovers the true reason for his invitation. A tragic accident maroons the party of seven, and they must attempt to escape with their lives.

SCOOBY-DOO

Zoinks! Two years after a clash of egos forced Mystery Inc. to close its doors, Scooby-Doo and his clever crime-solving cohorts Fred (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Shaggy (Matthew Lillard) and Velma (Linda Cardellini) are individually summoned to Spooky Island to investigate a series of paranormal incidents at the ultra-hip Spring Break hot spot.

SCOOBY-DOO 2: MONSTERS UNLEASHED 

In this live-action sequel, the lovable dog Scooby-Doo once again joins his pals Shaggy (Matthew Lillard), Velma (Linda Cardellini), Fred (Freddie Prinze Jr.) and Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar) as they stumble into another seemingly supernatural mystery. In addition to facing off against various monsters that are tormenting their town, the gang must deal with television journalist Heather Jasper-Howe (Alicia Silverstone), who is out to discredit their investigations.

THE VOICES 

A mentally unhinged factory worker (Ryan Reynolds) must decide whether to listen to his talking cat and become a killer, or follow his dog's advice to keep striving for normalcy.

Anna Valerious (Kate Beckinsale) reveals that Dracula has formed an unholy alliance with Dr. Frankenstein's monster (Shuler Hensley) and is hell-bent on exacting a centuries-old curse on her family. Together Anna and Van Helsing set out to destroy their common enemy, but uncover some unsettling secrets along the way.

SCREAM 4

It has been many years since the Ghostface Killer cut a deadly path through the town of Woodsboro. In order to get over the trauma of those horrific events, Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) has written a self-help book.

However, Sidney's arrival also sparks the return of Ghostface, putting Sidney and everyone she loves in danger.
