First up, The Devil Below sees a group of researchers investigate underground coal mines in the Appalachians that have been on fire for decades, and the abandoned Shookum Hills. There they find a disturbing secret, in a movie from Chernobyl Diaries‘ Brad Parker. Also coming to Netflix is The Seventh Day, a Guy Pearce-starring story about demonic possession, which had a limited theatrical run in March.

On the lighter side of things, Vampire Academy features Zoey Deutch as a half-human, half-vampire teen who has to negotiate school hierarchies with protecting mortal vampires from immortal, more vicious versions of the legend. Mark Waters of Mean Girls fame directed this 2014 comedy-horror, which was a critical and commercial flop on release, but might fall into the so-bad-it’s-good category.

Other new additions includes found footage parody A Haunted House 2, Western The Wind, and season 2 of zombie apocalypse show Black Summer, a prequel to Z Nation. Just to recap, then, here’s what fans of the horror genre can enjoy in June:

When combined with the premiere of Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead this week, and the recent impact of Things Heard & Seen, Netflix looks set to remain a home for horrific material across different genres.
