In celebration of DREAD’s upcoming release, The Maid (on VOD July 20th) we’ve crafted a #MonthOfDread featuring horror movies with amazing twists and unexpected turns!

Joy, a young woman from the country is hired as the new maid of a royal house, replacing the previous maid who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. One night, she encounters the maid who is haunting and terrorizing the family. Joy works to uncover the reason behind the former maid’s disappearance.

The Maid is directed by Lee Thongkham from a screenplay penned by Imillya Irwani Roslan; the film stars Savika Chaiyadej, Theerapat Sajakul, and Ploy Sornarin.

Ask yourself: Are you a horror fan who lives every day like it’s Halloween? Do you have the gumption and the stamina to consume a new horror movie every day for an entire year? If so, feast your eyes on July’s 31-day horror challenge below. Let us know you’re participating by using the hashtag #YearOfDread2021 on Social Media!
