Disney+ Launch Star, Which Includes An Array of Horror to Watch!
Disney+ recently announced Star, after rumours circulated online, a new selection of TV Shows and Films for a more mature audience. Of course with Disney now owning several different companies, including Fox, it was only a matter of time before we were given access to a wider selection of entertainment to watch. And much to my delight, this selection also included an array of horror related content.
I thought I'd fill you in on what Disney+ now has to offer us horror fans; it's a pretty decent selection to be fair.

My only complaint with this is that they haven't yet created a horror only section, instead all the horror related content currently sits in with the thrillers. And of course the introduction with this new content has come with a £2.00 price increase (making the total monthly cost now £7.99) but for so much choice I feel it's a reasonable price to pay.
Star also includes a huge selection of other popular/well known films and TV shows not listed here, so it'll keep you busy and entertained for a long time. There's some fantastic non-horror in there as well! My biggest question now is when are we going to see all the Alien & Predator franchises on there?! Hopefully we won't have to wait too long.
