Peacock Movies to Watch in September: Not every film receives the acclaim it merits. This was the case long before the advent of streaming services increased the number of films released annually. There are currently far too many films for anyone to view them all. However, the streaming era has also provided a digital afterlife for films that failed to gain traction in theaters. In some instances, films that were never released in theaters can receive a second opportunity.
This month on Peacock, there are three underrated movies that you should view by September’s end. Two of them are horror films, and one is a 20-year-old vintage action comedy. However, all three films are highly entertaining and delightful.
Here are 3 Underrated Peacock Movies To Watch
The Rundown (2003)
In The Rundown, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s early acting career, when he had not yet attained superhuman proportions, made him a very effective action hero. Firstly, Johnson appears plausible as a potential loser in a battle. This sense of potential vulnerability aids his portrayal of Beck, a bounty hunter who wants to leave the game to pursue his goal of opening a restaurant. Beck must first locate Travis Walker (Seann William Scott) and return him to his father.
When Beck catches up with Travis in Brazil, the situation becomes much more difficult than he anticipated. Both men quickly find themselves during a battle between rebels commanded by Mariana (Rosario Dawson) and a mine owner named Cornelius Bernard Hatcher (Christopher Walken). Beck and Travis must reevaluate their decisions to survive in the jungle.
The Frighteners (1996)
Five years before directing The Lord of the Rings, director Peter Jackson made his first major Hollywood attempt with the supernatural horror comedy The Frighteners. Michael J. Fox from Back to the Future portrays Frank Bannister, a man who can see and communicate with ghosts. Frank, after befriending a trio of ghosts named Cyrus (Chi McBride), Stuart (Jim Fyfe), and The Judge (John Astin), sets up a recurring scam in which he appears to expel ghosts from his clients’ homes.
Things go awry when Frank discovers that one of his recent clients, Lucy Lynskey (Trini Alvarado), is being pursued by an evil spirit who can kill both the living and the deceased. And if Frank is to have any hope of halting this monster, he may have to sacrifice his own life.

Curse of Chucky (2013)
Before Curse of Chucky revitalized the Child’s Play franchise, it had been inert for nearly a decade. Despite being a direct-to-video release, this is the finest Child’s Play film since the 1988 original. Brad Dourif reprises his role as the killer doll Chucky. At the same time, his daughter Fiona Dourif makes her debut as Nica Pierce, a paraplegic young woman who is unaware of her connection to Chucky’s former existence as serial killer Charles Lee Ray.
After her mother’s death, Nica is sent to reside with her sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti) and her husband Ian (Maitland McConnell). Nica develops a close relationship with her niece, Alice (Summer Howell), but is soon alarmed by evidence that the Chucky doll is alive. And once the murders commence, Nica herself becomes a suspect.
