Horror fans have been anticipating these releases for many months now, and they will soon be relieved of the wait. Some of these films are purely original, adaptations of previous work, or installments to famous horror franchises. These 10 horror films will have viewers lining up at the box office.
Dark Harvest is a folk horror film that is based on the novel by Norman Partridge and directed by David Slade. The film stars Casey Likes, Emily Crutchfield, and Dustin Ceithamer.
The movie is based on a legend about a monster called the October Boy who terrorizes the citizens of a small town. He rises from the cornfields every Halloween and with a butcher knife, his weapon of choice kills everyone who gets in his way. The rest of the details regarding the film are still under wraps. There is also no trailer to film yet. However, its production company has also produced a few Marvel films, so it has a reputation to uphold. The film has a release date of September 9th.
Jeepers Creepers: Reborn is the next installment in the Jeepers Creepers franchise. The film stars Sydney Craven, Gary Graham, and Jarreau Benjamin.
The film is about Craven's Laine and how she is starting to experience events that are familiar with The Creeper. She feels as if there is something beyond her world that is coming to get her. The trailer does a good job of not showing The Creeper and leaving the viewer in the dark, leaving his grand appearance for the big screen. There seems to be a lot of kills and gore, as The Creeper seems to have been successful in a lot of his kills. The film is set to be released on September 19th.
Don't Worry Darling is a physiological horror film directed by Olivia Wilde. The film stars Florence Pugh, Harry Styles, and Chris Pine.
The film follows Pugh's character, Alice, as she slowly realizes that the perfect utopian society she lives in is secretly a dark place. Based on the trailer, it seems that Pugh will be alone in her quest to find out the secrets of her town, as no one seems to support her. The trailer also leaves out a lot of details, so the viewer will be going in mostly blind. This is Pugh's second big horror film as she starred in the folk-horror masterpiece, Midsommar. It is set to be released on September 23rd.
The film is an origin story of the character Pearl, played by Goth, and who was the older woman on the farm in X. Pearl will uncover the secrets of the title character and help the viewer understand why she was so strange in X. The trailer shows the same slasher horror with a modern, satirical twist that X had. Pearl was filmed secretly so no one knew about it until the end of July. The film is going to be released on September 23rd.
Smile is a supernatural horror film that is directed by Parker Finn. Sosie Bacon, Caitlin Stasey, and Jessie Usher are the leads in this terrifying new movie.
The film is about Bacon's character Rose, who is a witness to a strange and traumatic event involving one of her patients. After experiencing more strange events and hearing of people who went through the same thing died, she tries to get to the bottom of what is going on with her. The trailer seems the film relies on suspense with a few jump scares throughout the film. However, it seems they spoiled their biggest jump scare in the trailer. Smile is going to be released on September 30th.
Evil Dead Rise is a supernatural horror film and the next installment in the Evil Dead franchise. The film stars Alyssa Sutherland, Lily Sullivan, and Gabrielle Echols and is centered around two estranged sisters who reconnect, but their reunion is interpreted as flesh-eating demons taking over.
The film is based in the same universe as the original films but does not act as a sequel. There is no trailer yet, but the viewer should expect the same suspenseful, survival horror, with some modern-day CGI and updated make-up. The film has a release date of October 7th.
Halloween Ends is the supposed final chapter in one of the best horror franchises: Halloween. The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Andi Matichak, and James Jude Courtney.
The film takes place four years after the last film and Laurie is trying to separate herself from Michael. Once a boy is murdered, however, other violent acts start appearing and force Laurie to try to end this once and for all. The trailer seems the film is going to have the same suspense that made the franchise such a hit in the first place. Halloween Ends has a release date of October 14th.
Prey For The Devil is a supernatural horror film. It stars Jacqueline Byers, Christian Navarro, and Colin Salmon. The plot revolves around supernatural horrors in the catholic church and tackles demonic possession as its main source of scares.
Byers's character of Sister Ann is the first nun ever to try and cure demonic possessions and the demons from her childhood seem to come back and haunt her. Going off the trailer, it seems to be a mix of classic jumpscares with some body horror. The film is debuting on October 28th.
The film follows a young couple who travels to an island in order to eat at an extremely exclusive restaurant, where everything is not as it seems. The plot details are vague from the trailer but the film looks hauntingly beautiful. Taylor-Joy, who was the lead in the folklore horror hit The Witch, looks to be just as captivating. The Menu is set to be released on November 18th.
Bones & All is a coming-of-age horror film directed by Luca Guadagnino and starring Taylor Russel and Timothée Chalamet. The film's details are mostly under wraps, but the plot is about a budding romance between a man and a woman as they travel throughout America.
Guadagnino has already made a name for himself in regard to coming-of-age films and Call Me By Your Name is one of the best in recent years. He is also reuniting with Chalamet, so this should bring out the best in both of them. This is not his first attempt at horror, as he directed 2018's Suspiria, which was met with mostly positive reviews. The film is going to be released on November 23rd.
