Not everyone can stomach a scary movie, but those who can typically love them. Last year turned out to be one of the best years for the spookiest of genres in recent memory with the releases of films like Get Out and IT, and if 2018 turns out to be anything like the year that preceded it, then we think it's safe to say that horror fans could once again walk away happy.
With horror on the mind, we have put together a list of scary movies that you should keep an eye on in 2018. We will bring you more information about these films as details become available to us, but you should make sure to note these on your calendars as soon as possible. On that note, let's dive into our first horror fest.
Right out of the gates, it looks like February is going to nail us point blank with an awesome-looking horror film in the form of The Spierig Brothers' Winchester. Starring Helen Mirren as Sarah Winchester (of the Winchester firearm company fame), the film follows her as she begins to suspect a haunting in her house in the wake of the deaths of her husband and child. Increasingly paranoid about the potentially supernatural phenomena taking place around her, Ms. Winchester eventually sanctions the construction of the labyrinthian Winchester Mystery House in Northern California. Winchester is loosely based on real-life events, so if you are into horror with an added element of historical fiction, then this should be right up your alley when it debuts on the big screen later this year.
Release Date: February 2
The Strangers: Prey At Night
Bryan Bertino's The Strangers has developed a cult following in the ten years since it first debuted in theaters, and many fans have called for a sequel ever since its initial release. Now we will finally get a sequel to the creepy home-invasion thrilled this year in the form of The Strangers: Prey at Night, and it definitely looks like it won't disappoint. The three "strangers" have returned to hunt down a more extensive stable of victims this time around, and with the horror no longer confined to one single house, we're likely going to get a much better understanding of just how deadly this horrifying family can be when they don the masks. Now let's just hope that this sequel can live up to the original's legacy.
Release Date: March 9
