2017 wasn’t really the best year for horror films. With the exception of “Get Out,” “Raw,” and to a lesser extent, “Annabelle 2: Creation,” “Gerald’s Game” or “It,” there weren’t too many horror films worthy of being mentioned. However, when it comes to horror films, 2018 already looks more hopeful.
Some classic horror films are getting promising remakes or sequels, great directors like Steven Soderbergh and Lenny Abrahamson are making their debuts in the horror genre, and on #7, we’ve got a film that has already been called “the scariest horror movie in years.”
The following list features 15 upcoming horror films that we’re looking forward to seeing this year. Let us know in the comments which of the following titles you think will have the most potential of being great films, and what other horror movies you’re expecting this year.
1. Summer of ’84
Release date: January 22, 2018 (Sundance Film Festival)
“Summer of ’84” is said to be a film in the same vein as “Stranger Things,” but instead featuring serial killers.
A group of kids spends their summer spying on their neighbor, who they suspect is a serial killer. As they come closer to discovering the truth, things get dangerous.
This film was shown at the Sundance Film Festival where it has received mixed reviews. Many criticized its overuse of the nostalgia factor and called it inferior to “Stranger Things.” Others praised its dark, more mature take on the genre and praised its unexpected ending. However, with only five reviews on Rotten Tomatoes at the moment, it is too early to judge this film and we are looking forward to a proper release.
Release date: February 2, 2018 (USA)
