We have about another four months to go before we say farewell to 2016. We’ve seen some pretty good horror and genre movies thus far, such as Green Room, The Conjuring 2 and The Purge: Election Year, but we still have a solid slate of horror yet to be released. Here are six upcoming horror movies that should be on your radar:
6. Ouija: Origin of Evil– October 21, 2016
This unnecessary sequel actually looks watchable, unlike its predecessor, which was just awful. Director Mike Flanagan (Hush, Oculus) is at the helm which is promising, but it is still a PG-13 romp, so my expectations are tempered.
5. Demon– September 9, 2016 (Limited Release)
I just became aware of this film and I’m pretty stoked to check it out. It’s a take on the Jewish legend of the dybbuk, a malicious possessing spirit believed to be the displaced soul of a dead person. Now this should be interesting.
4. Morgan– September 2, 2016
This flick reminds me of Splice, without Adrien Brody trying to sex up his mutant creation. On top of a cool concept, it boasts a super talented cast, with the likes of Kate Mara, Rose Leslie, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Paul Giamatti, Toby Jones and the new kid on the block Anya Taylor-Joy.
3. 31– September 16, 2016
We’ve known about Rob Zombie’s latest horror epic for quite some time now. I’m super excited about finally getting a chance to experience Zombie’s newest celluloid nightmare.
2. Don’t Breathe– August 26, 2016
There really are no words to describe my excitement for this movie. Director Fede Alvarez’s follow up to the incredible Evil Dead remake looks like it will be quite memorable. Bringing back the very talented Jane Levy, and pairing her up with the equally as talented Stephen Lang, will prove to make this a solid flick.
1. Blair Witch– September 14, 2016
Director Adam Wingard’s latest effort will be a direct sequel to 1999’s The Blair Witch Project. This is probably something we never saw happening, being that the 2000 flick Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 was absolute trash. This new sequel looks fierce and terrifying, I’m hoping the movie will crush all expectations. //Arturo Padilla
