5 new to Peacock movies with 90% or higher on Rotten Tomatoes

Plenty of new to Peacock movies are arriving in September 2023, including a wide selection of horror movies as spooky season gets underway. As always, Peacock draws extensively from corporate sibling Universal, which is especially helpful in offering classic monster movies. Not all of those movies are classics, of course, and the sheer amount of new movies on Peacock every month can be daunting to navigate.

So why not let critics navigate for you? Here are seven of this month’s new to Peacock movies with ratings of 90% or higher on Rotten Tomatoes, the site that aggregates reviews from movie critics. They all get the highest stamp of approval from the people who know movies best.

Alfred Hitchcock’s contribution to the animal-attack horror subgenre is no cheesy pun-filled romp. It’s one of the master of suspense’s greatest movies, a chilling examination of what happens when nature turns against humans without warning. It could also be viewed as the psychosexual exploration of the mind of a troubled woman, seemingly vibrant socialite Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren). After meeting lawyer Mitch Brenner (Rod Taylor) in a San Francisco pet store, she follows him to his family home in the small town of Bodega Bay, where birds soon start behaving very strangely.
