As a genre, horror often gets a bad rap. Even though it’s my favorite cinematic subset, you admittedly have to wade through a lot of dreck to get to the gems, but part of why we participate in this slog is because of how great the good stuff can truly be. And every year, without fail, there are some fantastic horror movies that are well worth your time and investment.

There are sure to be some absolute bombs in the genre, but now that we’re firmly ensconced in 2016—we’re only a few weeks into the new calendar, but two of the wide released have already been horror joints (The Forrest and The Boy)—we thought we’d take a look at some of the upcoming genre titles we’re stoked for. Sure, not all of these are going to pan out like we hope (they never do), but all of these have the potential to be a lot of fun and maybe even scare the shit out of you.

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies (February 5)
When Seth Grahame-Smith’s literary horror mash up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies hit in 2009, it sparked a craze. The book takes Jane Austen’s novel of manners and, as the title suggests, inserts scenes of zombie carnage, setting the story in an alternate universe where the dead walk the Earth. Burr Steers’ film of the same name follows heroine Elizabeth Bennett, who, in this version, has been trained to become proficient in various forms of weapons and martial arts, as she discovers love and dispatches swarms of the undead. This could turn out to be fantastic, or it could totally suck, but if they pull it off, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies may very well be a lot of fun.
