If you are anything like me and need to be aware of every horror film that gets released then this list is for you. Check out the list below, mark your calendar accordingly, and make sure to stock up on snacks because there is a lot to watch this week.

Appendage-October 2nd-Hulu

Appendage Poster

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if your anxiety began to manifest as a physical being inside of your body? If so, Appendage may be just the flick you are looking for. Part body horror and part possession flick, this film will definitely be on the must watch list for many horror fans.

You have to hand it to Hulu’s Huluween setup, each year they provide us with some of the best indie horror films fresh off the circuit. If you want to see what suffering for your art really means, stream Appendage on October 2nd, via Hulu.

House of Dolls-October 3rd-VOD

House of Dolls Poster

When has claiming an inheritance at a mysterious location ever been a good thing? What do you get when you combine an escape room, family drama, and punk rock Pinhead? House of Dolls, apparently.

The biggest draw to this movie has to be the fact that it features part of horror royalty, Dee Wallace (Cujo). If you want to see if this queen of horror has still got it, stream House of Dolls on October 3rd, via VOD.

Mary Had a Little Lamb-October 3rd-VOD/DVD

Mary Had a Little Lamb Poster

Words cannot describe how much I love this new trend of children’s book horror movies. This trend has brought us Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, Sleeping Beauty’s Massacre, and now Mary Had a Little Lamb.

Any horror fan worth their salt should be able to look at that poster and know that this is going to be a great movie. If you to turn off your brain and just enjoy some carnage, stream Mary Had a Little Lamb on October 3rd, via VOD.

The Nun II_October 3rd_PVOD

The Nun II Poster

This film doesn’t need much of an introduction on my part. This sequel hails from the ever-popular Conjuring universe and is currently shattering all expectations at the box office.

While not as successful as the original film, The Nun II is making horror fans scream out in fright all over the globe. If you want to see what kind of special effects you can get with a blank check from Warner Brothers, go stream The NUN II on October 3rd, via PVOD.

Don’t Look Away-October 3rd-VOD

Don’t Look Away Poster

If you ever had the thought that It Follows would have been better if they used a plastic mannequin instead of the lurking presence, then Don’t Look Away will be right up your alley.

While going with the uncanny valley effect may be risky, it doesn’t often work, this film looks like a solid thriller either way. If giant dolls are something that gets under your skin, go stream Don’t Look Away on October 3rd, via VOD.

The Jester-October 3rd-VOD

The Jester

I will watch anything that Dread Central Produces. Are these films always good? No. But they are always worth watching. The trailer for The Jester has me just confused enough to be intrigued.

This film looks like a mashup of Terrifier, An American Werewolf in London, and Wishmaster. If you like a little slapstick in your horror, stream The Jester on October 3rd, via VOD.

The Mean One-October 3rd-VOD/DVD

The Mean One Poster

I have been waiting for this film to come to VOD since it was announced on October 7th, 2022. For those who are unaware, The Mean One is an unlicensed remake of How the Grinch Stole Christmas starring David Howard Thornton (Terrifier).

This promised to be the bloodiest Christmas film in quite some time and will definitely be added to my annual holiday watch list. If you want to see how much carnage the Grinch can really dole out, stream The Mean One on October 3rd, via VOD.

Haunted Manion-October 4th-PVOD

Haunted Mansion Poster

Intro horror doesn’t get enough credit as a subgenre. Without media like Beetlejuice or Are You Afraid of the Dark, we would have far fewer horror fans. And the world would be a much more boring place to live as a result.

Haunted Mansion is the newest big budget intro horror film made by Disney. As such it’s a great family friendly horror flick to share with the kids. If you want to get in a little family bonding time, why not grab some popcorn and stream Haunted Mansion on October 4th, via VOD

Monsters of California-October 6th-VOD

Monsters of California Poster

It is widely known that Tom Delonge (Blink 182) is a big believer in extraterrestrial life. So much so that he left the highly successful band to go find proof of alien life. Whether he did or not is up to speculation. But what we do know is that he made an awesome horror film about aliens.

Monsters of California gives us a group of four teenage friends as they find a government cover up proving that monsters are real. Oh, and it features music from Blink-182 throughout the trailer. If that sounds as awesome to you as it does to me, stream Monsters of California on October 6th, via VOD.

Vindicta-October 6th-VOD

Vindicta Poster

Vindicta hasn’t gotten the attention that it deserves. Combining a serial killer plot with a revenge thriller isn’t something that we see often enough in the world of horror. At least not since the early 2000s, when they were every other movie.

Not to mention this film has a star-studded cast. We get performances from Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings), Jeremy Piven (The Twilight Zone), and Karolina Cubitt (Supernatural). If you want something that will get your heart rate up, stream Vindicta on October 6th, via VOD.

V/H/S 85-October 6th-Shudder

V/H/S 85 Poster

Additions to the V/H/S catalog are becoming about as regularly scheduled as The Simpsons Tree House of Horror episodes. Meaning that horror fans can expect an installment each spooky season. And honestly, I’m here for it.

This entry features five new tapes from the ever-popular 80’s theme trend that we can’t seem to escape from. If you want to see what the anthology series has in store for us this year, go stream V/H/S 85 on October 6th, via Shudder.

Pet Sematary: Bloodlines-October 6th-Paramount+

Pet Sematary: Bloodlines Poster

And finally, we have a prequel that nobody asked for. But everyone knows they are going to watch it anyway. We can thank the good people over at Paramount+ for bringing us this new addition to the already extended Pet Sematary collection.

Although review scores for this prequel have been less than stellar, with it receiving a 25% on Rotten Tomatoes, I will still watch anything with Stephen King’s (It) name attached to it. If you feel the same way, make sure to stream Pet Sematary: Bloodlines on October 6th, via Paramount+.

The Best New Horror Movies Coming to Streaming Platforms This Week



It’s a new week and that means new horror films! This week we are in for a treat; December means Christmas horror movies are upon us. So, grab some eggnog and cookies, let’s get spooky.

There’s Something in the Barn-December 5th-VOD

There's Something in the Barn

I love Christmas horror. It provides such a fun juxtaposition between the goofy holiday movies we expect around Christmas and the blood and gore we get from horror. There’s Something in the Barn gives us all of this wrapped in a bow.

There’s Something in the Barn takes this theme to the next level by also adding in some culture clash. This new horror flick places an American family in Norway for the holiday. As expected, the characters don’t adapt well. This film leans a bit more on the camp side but still looks like it’s worth a watch.

Monsters of California-December 5th-VOD

Monsters of California

Monsters of California has been getting some positive buzz recently. Not only because Blink 182‘s Tom Delonge directed and produced the film. This film gives us the suburban fantasy that we have all been dreaming of.

Monsters of California is a conspiracy theorist’s dream. It turns out monsters are real, and the government has been hiding them the entire time. This new coming of age horror flick looks like it will be a fun ride for fans, if not explicitly gory.

Everyone Will Burn-December 5th-VOD

Everyone Will Burn

We talked about what to expect from Everyone Will Burn recently. If you didn’t catch that one, Everyone Will Burn gives us one of my favorite themes in horror. We get to see a murderous psychic child in action.

If you enjoy that kind of thing as much as I do, then this new horror flick is for you. This is also a great choice for fans of international horror or just psychological horror. regardless of what side of horror you are on, this looks like a fun one.

Black Mold-December 7th-Tubi

Black Mold

It’s always a good sign when a horror flick chooses a subject material that can affect anyone. I am unlikely to need to hunt down a catholic priest because of demonic possession. But it wouldn’t surprise me if someone discovered black mold in my home.

Thinking about it, that may explain some of the things in my life. Black Mold is far from the first horror film to explore this concept but based on the awards it’s received it may be the best. If you are looking for something new on Tubi to watch this week, give Black Mold a try.

Lord of Misrule-December 8th-VOD

Lord of Misrule

Speaking of the Catholics, our next new horror film centers around a Catholic priest. Lord of Misrule is our newest addition in the folk horror subgenre. I am a big fan of folk horror in general.

There’s something about pitting the old gods versus the new that scratches a special place in my brain. There’s a reason The Wicker Man is considered one of the greatest horror films ever made. If you are a fan of folk horror, give The Lord of Misrule a shot.

Raging Grace-December 8th-VOD

Raging Grace

We also discussed Raging Grace recently. This new horror flick focuses on chasing the American dream from the perspective of an immigrant family. And it looks like it will provide this in a terrifying light.

Raging Grace will also focus on the terrors of working in the service industry. The main theme of this film seems to be unjust power hierarchies and I am here for it. If you like a little social commentary in your horror, go watch Raging Grace.

The Cello-December 8th-VOD

The Cello

We have Tobin Bell (Saw) and an evil cello, do you need more? It’s a tale as old as time. A musician needs a new instrument and buys a mystical piece from a mysterious shop owner who is definitely not the devil.

The Cello looks like it’s going to be a bit on the slow burn side of the spectrum. But who doesn’t love a good physiological horror.? And it has Tobin Bell in something other than Saw, so that’s a plus.

Santa Isn’t Real-December 8th-VOD

Santa isn't Real

Our newest neo slasher is Santa Isn’t Real. It isn’t clear if this is supernatural or not, but it is definitely full of cheesy goodness. Whether that was intentional or not doesn’t really matter.

This may not be the strongest looking entry on this list. But I have been surprised before. It’s important to never judge a horror flick by its trailer. If you want to give an indie film a chance this week, go watch Santa isn’t Real.

The Sacrifice Game-December 8th-Shudder

The final new horror flick this week is the Shudder original The Sacrifice Game. Luckily for us it’s another Christmas horror film. The Sacrifice Game is absolutely making the Christmas watch list this year.

Shudder is known for bringing us the best original horror flicks year after year. Not all of them are amazing but they normally get points for being different. If you want to see what kind of present Shudder came up with for us this year, go watch The Sacrifice Game.

All of the New Horror Films Releasing This Weekend



It’s a new week and that means it’s time for new horror films! This week has everything a horror fan could want to see. From big budget triple-A films, right down to international and indie films. Make sure to schedule some time to get spooky this week, there are a bunch of new films to watch.

Raging Grace- December 1st-Theaters

Raging Grace Poster

Immigrant and service industry horror has been on the rise recently and it has created some amazing entertainment for horror fans. Films like His House and No One Gets Out Alive have shown audiences a vision of horror that they may not have considered before.

Raging Grace looks to combine these two concepts into a bone chilling horror film. This new horror flick delves into subjects like classism and just how hard it can be to chase the American dream.

Don’t Suck-December 1st-Theaters

Don’t Suck Poster

Who doesn’t want to see a horror comedy with Jamie Kennedy (Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell)? Don’t Suck is a new horror film about a vampire who wants to be a standup comedian. Why? I assume because living forever is incredibly boring.

Sure, this film looks a little on the nose as far as the plot goes. But who knows, maybe this will be the breakout horror film of the year. If not, it will probably still be good for a few laughs, even if they weren’t intentional.

As We Know It-December 1st-VOD

As We Know It Poster

This new horror flick has everything a horror fan needs. We get zombies, conflict between an ex-girlfriend and a best friend, and just watching real people try to survive the end of the world. It even focuses on the humor of the situation.

Wait, I think we may have already seen a film like this. Even if it isn’t the most original concept, As We Know It looks like it will be a funny addition to any horror watch list this weekend.

Everyone Will Burn-December 1st-Theaters

Everyone Will Burn Poster

Ah, murderous psychic children, the cornerstone of all the best horror movies. Some people think that this trope has been done to death, but I disagree. If it didn’t work, then Stephen King (IT) wouldn’t keep putting it in every third story.

Everyone Will Burn is the newest addition to this list of terrifying films. And it looks like it’s going to pack a punch. If you are a fan of revenge thrillers or just creepy kids in general, make sure to add this one to your watch list.

Godzilla Minus One-December 1st-Theaters

Godzilla Minus One Poster

This film doesn’t need much of an introduction. If you aren’t already familiar with this giant monster then you should clear your calendar for the next month because you have some films to catch up on.

This new version of the classic tale takes us back to the beginning. Godzilla Minus One may be giving us a movie that we more or less have seen 100 times, but let’s be honest, we all know we are going to love it anyway.

It’s a Wonderful Knife-December 1st-VOD/Shudder

It’s A Wonderful Knife Poster

I love it when a studio just says screw it, what if Jason was actually Santa Clause? Sadly, that’s not exactly what we are getting here. But honestly, it’s the closest we could all hope for. And it’s coming home just in time for Christmas!

This new Christmas flick is campy, bloody, and I love every second of it. Between this and films like Freaky and Happy Death Day, we are getting ever closer to a horror version of all of our most nostalgic films. If you didn’t catch this one in theaters, make sure to catch it at home this weekend.

Loop Track-December 1st-VOD

Loop Track Poster

What do you get when you mix outdoor survival, conspiracy theories, and a monster hiding in the woods? Our last new horror flick this weekend, Loop Track. This little thriller looks like it is going to tap into one of our oldest fears, the fear of the unknown.

This looks like someone placed The Predator in Australia and just set a camera up to record. Now, as usual, this film will likely be one of those are they delusional or is the monster real type of flicks. If that’s the kind of horror you need in your life, make sure to check out Loop Track this weekend.

Sequels & Remakes Will Dominate Horror Cinema in 2024



I hope you loved the original horror movies that came out in 2023 because 2024 looks like it’s going to be filled with many sequels and remakes.

Of the original 2023 fare, we got M3GAN, When Evil Lurks, Cobweb, Thanksgiving, Totally Killer, and Last Voyage of the Demeter (technically a prequel?). Sequels included Exorcist Believer, Evil Dead Rise, Scream VI, and Insidious: The Red Door. Not a bad mix, right?

But 2024 already looks like sequels and remakes are going to be the dominant theme, at least according to the Facebook page What to Watch. They posted a list of horror movies they see as coming out in 2024 –some confirmed, some not. Although the list is a little flawed as some of the movies aren’t even listed on IMDb yet (Arachnophobia remake) it is still an encouraging omen of what’s ahead.

They also listed mock-up movie posters, but even though they are fake, we can appreciate the artist’s concepts nonetheless.

Below are the films they list and their respective posters. We only included movies that are actually listed on IMDb, and we added The Strangers.

Keep in mind what COVID didn’t push back in production, the actors’ and writers’ strike did. So expect release dates to change, maybe even into 2025. Note that the phony Scream 7 one-sheet says 2025, but the official IMDb page says 2024.

Scream 7

The Strangers Chapter 1

Final Destination 6

Beetlejuice 2

The Crow

The Conjuring Last Rites

Smile 2

Constantine 2
