 The Addams Family (1991)

There are so many renditions of The Addams Family, but the original 1991 film is one of the best.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind (2004) 

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind will make you cry, whether it’s your first time seeing it or you’ve seen it a million times. The story is about an estranged couple (Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey) who decides to go through the process of completely erasing one another from their own memories, which becomes complicated due to the nature of love itself. This film will make you reflect on the way you perceive relationships based on memories and is definitely a good one to put on if you feel like crying. 

In The Dark (season 2)

In The Dark’s second season dropped at the end of July, but if you haven’t watched this The CW show, spend time this month binge-watching both seasons. The story is about Murphy (Perry Mattfeld), who’s blind, attempting to solve the murder of one of her friends. After some shocking truths were revealed at the end of season 1, Murphy is determined to get justice for her friend, which is easier said than done. 

Scary Movie 5 (2013) 

The Scary Movie films are always a classic to return to when you just need a laugh. The fifth film hits the streaming platform Aug. 12. While recurring series stars Anna Faris and Regina Hall are noticeably absent from the film, it still pokes fun at a lot of throwback pop culture moments that still make us laugh. 

We Summon The Darkness (2019) 

While this film isn’t the scariest movie ever made, the plot itself hits a little close to home. The film is about three best friends who take a road trip to a metal concert. While at the show, they bond with some musicians and decide to hang out after. What seems harmless turns into an event straight from hell and will keep you on your toes throughout the entire movie. If you’re in the mood to watch a horror film you’ve never seen before, check this out when it drops Aug. 8.
