Who doesn’t like a good scare every now and then? We’ve all been through those days when a scary movie gets to us and we spend two days feeling a bit haunted by our own imagination and scary thoughts. The adrenaline rush of an eerie scene is worth every jump on the theater seat! Here are seven movies we expect will make you jump off your seat in horror like never before!
1. Anabelle – August 11th:
Miranda Otto is featured in the New Line sequel to the doll-centric 2014 hit. David Sandberg directs the spin-off of the Conjuring franchise, which follows a doll maker and his wife who, 20 years after the tragic death of their little girl, welcome a nun and several orphans into their home, only to see them targeted by the possessed titular creation.
2. Polaroid – August 25th:
Lars Klevberg directs Dimension’s feature adaptation of his short film, which centers on two women who discover a Polaroid camera and the horrible past it hides.
3. It – September 8th:
The first of New Line’s two-part adaptation of Stephen King’s landmark novel follows a group of teens who defeat the titular creature, who then returns years later to torment the adults who now have no memory of the first battle. Andy Muschietti directs the horror pic starring Bill Skarsgard and Jaeden Lieberher.
4. Friday the 13th – October 13th:
The legendary hockey mask-wearing, machete-wielding mass murderer Jason Voorhees is back on the big screen in Paramount’s retelling of the classic horror film, and on the film’s titular date. Breck Eisner directs the horror pic, which is expected to answer the decades-old question of why the slasher can’t be killed.
5. Jigsaw – October 27th:
The long-running Lionsgate franchise — which sees the titular serial killer Jigsaw subjecting people to fatal puzzles — gets a fresh makeover, with a new story line and new characters. Michael and Peter Spierig direct the seventh film, again featuring a score by Nine Inch Nails musician Charlie Clouser.
7. Cult of Chucky 7:
Chucky returns to terrorize his human victim, Nica. Meanwhile, the killer doll has some scores to settle with his old enemies, with the help of his former wife.
Now that we’ve told you everything about the movies coming your way to scare the hell out of you, make sure to have your popcorn bucket ready and a good friend to grab when it goes all spooky on the screen. BOO!
