A ton of great horror films and series are now streaming on Peacock, and some killer movies are set to premiere this December, including The Exorcist: Believer. In the meantime, there are six horror series, both old and new, that are streaming now on Peacock that you should check out.




Season three of “Chucky” has just premiered and sees our favorite killer doll take over the White House. You can also watch the previous seasons.


“In Chucky’s unending thirst for power, season 3 now sees Chucky ensconced with the most powerful family in the world — America’s First Family, inside the infamous walls of the White House. How did Chucky wind up here? What in God’s name does he want? And how can Jake, Devon, and Lexy possibly get to Chucky inside the world’s most secure building, all while balancing the pressures of romantic relationships and growing up? Meanwhile, Tiffany faces a looming crisis of her own as the police close in on her for “Jennifer Tilly’s” murderous rampage last season.”


Season 3 of “Chucky” sees the return of Bard Dourif as the voice of Chucky, Jennifer Tilly, Devon Sawa, Zackery Arthur, Bjorgvin Arnarson, Alyvia Lind, and more.


This series is produced by UCP and executive produced by creator Don Mancini, Nick Antosca, Alex Hedlund, David Kirschner, Jeff Renfroe, and Alex Hedlund, who we recently sat down with for an interview.





Twisted Metal


Peacock’s original series adaptation of the hit video game “Twisted Metal” is now streaming on the service. The ten-episode, action-packed first season stars Anthony Mackie, Stephanie Beatriz, Tahj Vaughans, Michael Carollo, Jared Bankens, Chelle Ramos, Thomas Haden Church, Scream franchise star Neve Campbell, and more.


The series is “about a motor-mouthed outsider offered a chance at a better life, but only if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland. With the help of a badass axe-wielding car thief, he’ll face savage marauders driving vehicles of destruction and other dangers of the open road, including a deranged clown who drives an all too familiar ice cream truck.”







“Grimm,” which ran from 2011 to 2017, is a dramatic, action-packed series that sees detective Nick Burkhardt’s life turned upside down when he discovers that he comes from a long one of Grimms, those charged with keeping the peace between humans and Wesen, mythical creatures whose lives are hidden from humanity.


Starring David Giuntoli, Rusell Hornsby, Silas Weir Mitchell, Sasha Roiz, Reggie Lee, and Elizabeth Tulloch, the series is a must-see! If you’re looking for holiday fun, I recommend watching episode seven of season four.




Hammer House of Horror


Not to be confused with the film franchise, this British horror anthology series aired in 1980 and was produced by England’s leading exporters of horror films, telling tales of haunted houses, demons, ghosts, and other supernatural wonders.


The series, which stars iconic actors like Peter Cushings, features thirteen hour-long episodes, each telling a chilling tale of different types of horror, from the paranormal to the supernatural to human atrocities such as cannibalism.





The Vampire Diaries 


The Vampire Diaries made its premiere back in 2009 and quickly formed a cut following. The drama-packed, horror-filled show aired its final episode in 2017.


The series centered on the lives, loves, dangers, and disasters in the town of Mystic Falls, Virginia. Creatures of unspeakable horror lurk beneath this town as a teenage girl is suddenly torn between two vampire brothers.





The Girl In The Woods

This 2001 series is set in the Pacific Northwest and follows the escape of a young woman named Carrie as she escapes from her mysterious, cult-like colony that guards the world from monsters hidden behind a secret door within the woods.



You can sign up now for Peacock’s free seven-day trial, but if you want to watch The Exorcist: Believer free, you should wait and sign up closer to December 1st. I will say this: signing up for the monthly subscription ($5.99) is worth it, with the streaming service featuring over 80,000 hours of entertainment.
