Good day, my loyal readers. I have composed a pretty interesting list for you today. Yes, every one of us will be going to see blockbusters like It: Chapter 2, Zombieland 2 and probably the Child’s Play reboot. So, I dug deep to find a couple of movies that you may have not heard of!
With that being said and in the spirit of Us from Jordan Peele being released later this month, here’s your list.
7. 3 From Hell
Your enjoyment of this movie, brought to you by Rob Zombie, will depend on your amusement with the previous movies from this guy. So, here’s your homework. Go watch House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects (both prequels of this movie) and, my personal favorite, The Lords of Salem.
Without spoiling the prequels, this movie follows a devilish clown, and a couple of psychos. Yes, the clown is also a psycho. From his track record, this promises to satisfy your gore quota.
Oh, and everything from Rob Zombie is R-rated, so if you’re underage, don’t. Or ask your parents.
This one will come out late 2019.
This Octavia Spencer-led film looks creepy as you can imagine. She’s collaborating again with Tate Taylor, whom she worked with in The Help. But this one isn’t gonna help you sleep. Pun intended.
Octavia Spencer plays Sue Ann, or the titular Ma, a loner who is asked by some teenagers to buy them some beer. Instead of just buying them beers, she lets them have parties at her basement. Things start to go wrong when the kids start realizing that a middle-age woman letting kids have parties at her basement is weird.
From what I can understand, this movie is a stalker-horror movie with Academy Award Winner Octavia Spencer. I recommend that you purchase your tickets as soon as you can.
Don’t go into any middle age woman house on June 7th, when this comes out.
5. 47 Meters Down: Uncaged
If you haven’t heard of this movie, it’s okay. And it’s also okay if you didn’t knew that this is a sequel. The original 47 Meter Down stars Mandy Moore and its about a ill-fated cage dive in Mexico.
Let me be honest with you. I’m terrified of anything eating me while I’m in water. Even when I’m on a lake or something, I can’t stop thinking that a Megalodon is going to eat me. So, a movie that’s about a group of friends most probably being eaten by a truckload of sharks is a no-no for me.
That doesn’t mean that I didn’t think the trailer was showing me actual footage of people being eaten by sharks.
This one doesn’t have a release date yet, but keep an eye out!
4. Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark
I think that we can all agree that Guillermo del Toro is a genious when it comes to designing creatures. An anthology movie with a ton of opportunities for this guy to showcase his talent sounds like something I want to see.
Let me be real, it’s not directed by del Toro, but produced. Nevertheless, the Super Bowl trailers gave us a piece of the movie, and the creature designs look like del Toro had all the input on them.
And it’s directed by the guy who did The Trollhunter. If you don’t know why this is a good thing, go read our article of 7 foreign movies you have to see.
Tell some good stories until this one comes out on August 9.
Superman is the personification of morality and goodness. Superman who saves everyone who needs to be saved. Superman is the one who fights for truth, justice and the american way.
In this movie, “Superman” is a psychotic kid who likes killing people.
This film is being produced by Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn and written by his cousin and his brother, Mark and Brian. Plus, it’s an Elizabeth Banks-led film.
If you need more reasons to watch it, I can tell you that the look of the movie is pulled out of Man of Steel. It is the story of Brandon Breyer, a bullied alien kid who discovers that he has powers. So, he starts killing people.
He’s coming for you the 24th of May.
2. Doctor Sleep
Sequels are oftentimes a bad idea, generally, they’re made for the studio to make a few dollars from the back of the original.
A sequel to a Stanley Kubrick film sounds like herecy. But, this sequel to The Shining has me excited beyond mesure.
First of all, it’s an Ewan McGregor-led film. He’s playing Danny Torrance who, in the present time, is a psychic-alcoholic who comes across a cult who praises people that have the shining.
And, the crème de la crème is that the director is Mike Flanagan. If you don’t know who that is, you don’t have Internet or need to step up your horror game.
He’s the director of Oculus, Hush, Gerald’s Game and he wrote, directed, produced, created, and edited The Haunting of Hill House.
You should be looking forward to this one on November 8th.
I don’t know if you remember a world pre-Hereditary, but I don’t. Now, the genius behind this horror masterpiece comes back for another round to creep us out.
Ari Aster will write and direct this film which will follow a couple who is vacationing in a Swedish village. And, surprise, surprise, it seems that this little village is actually a cult.
Nevertheless, take this synopsis with a grain of salt. If Hereditary taught us something, it’s that you can’t expect something concrete from this visionary.
It will creep us out on August 9.
