It's just a bunch of colorful characters chasing down -- and frequently getting killed by -- everyone's favorite interstellar big game hunter.
Also it deals with video games, and that's always fun. Where to watch it: Shudder. It's about a bunch of crooks hiding out in a warehouse while their recent heist falls apart. Bullet Head i s virtually the offspring of those two movies. A bunch of crooks find themselves trapped in a warehouse with a killer pitbull. It's that simple. While much of the film is darkly entertaining, it does fair warning contain some simulated dog violence that may upset some viewers, so beware.
If you want something weird and atmospheric, give it a shot. That's when they start getting picked off, one by one. In this case, the slasher antagonist is a hidden sniper with wildly impressive aim, which gives this intense, brutal thriller ample opportunity to show what a high-powered rifle can do.
It's not pretty, and the violence should resonate even more in our current climate. The format is the same as the first Unfriended -- the story takes place entirely through one guy's computer monitor -- but that's the only connection. This time around we're privy to an online "game night" between six old friends And this computer has some very "dark" passageways on it. Sanchez Why it's great: The writer of the fantastic chiller The Orphanage makes his directorial debut with this half-conventional, half-twisted tale of four young siblings who live in their horrific mansion by themselves long after their mother passes away.
Also there's some sort of creature in the basement, and a snooty banker who keeps sniffing around. Hell there's even been a rather brilliant horror parody that's called The Cabin in the Woods. But it's always cool when a scrappy little indie finds a way to make this exceedingly familiar setting feel fresh. This one starts out in fairly standard fashion, but once the loving matriarch seemingly loses her mind, the narrative branches out to include a bizarre but amusing B-story about the "true crime show" version of the events. It all makes sense in the end.
Sort of. It's easy to see where this Ouija board thriller, based on a true story, is headed early on, but it's still packed with numerous scary ideas, well-earned tension, and simple jolts.
Along the way he meets all sorts of colorful characters -- none of whom are all that trustworthy. This one earns points for being a lot more contemplative than most zombie flicks, which means it's more about the ideas than the carnage. Although there certainly is some of the latter. Where to watch it: Netflix. This is one of those low-key, character-based, slow-burner horror stories, but it leads to some very creepy places.
Doesn't hurt that the three leads are all great. Either way, things get pretty nasty. That's kind of a new twist. This eerie Argentine import owes more than a little to the atmosphere and the jump scares of the best Japanese horror films, but it also moves well and keeps the jolts coming. It takes a little while to warm up but pays off rather creepily. Release date: TBD Cast: Chloe Levine, Jeremy Holm, Larry Fessenden Director: Jenn Wexler Why it's great: Wexler, the indie horror producer of such titles as ABCs of Death 2 and Psychopaths , tries her hand at directing with this comfortably familiar and frequently gruesome slasher throwback about a weird park ranger who butts heads with a gang of troublemaking punks.
Turns out someone in the group is a raving psycho. While scrappy and simple, The Ranger earns points for being an affectionate homage to slasher classics that maintains a sense of humor without becoming goofy. Also it has some kick-ass punk rock on the soundtrack.

Now we have the reverse. In Mom and Dad , a mysterious ailment makes caregivers want to kill their own children. It's a gruesome joke, and fortunately Cage and Blair are in on it. Whether or not the film goes too far with this premise, or plays it a little too safe, is up to the viewer, but it's certainly an entertaining dark comedy-horror combo. What it lacks in a supernatural element it's about a group of kids who become convinced that their neighbor is a killer it more than makes up for in mood, tone, and suspense. Plus the young cast can hold its own against the higher profile stars of the aforementioned hits.
It certainly has the same plot, only this time the residence being invaded is a trailer instead of a house. But once the scary stuff hits the screen, this unrelated follow-up not only manages to find its own feet, it delivers a third-act roller coaster that will exhaust mild-mannered viewers. Buckle up. Release date: October 4 Cast: Bront Palarae, Tara Basro, Endy Arfian Director: Joko Anwar Ritual Why it's great: A remake of the Indonesian cult classic of the same name, this creep-fest deals with possession, resurrection, long-forgotten family secrets, and frequent doses of really effective jolts, scares, and gore.
It's also shot really well and boasts a solid sense of humor. Give something outside your comfort zone a shot! This is a pretty old-fashioned tale of a suspicious suicide and an allegedly haunted convent, but it's crafted with obvious care, not to mention affection for the horror matinee classics of the s. Release date: September 7 Cast: Ray Stevenson, David Oakes, Aura Garrido Director: Xavier Gens Frontiere s Why it's great: Fans of The Shape of Water may want to keep an eye out for this tale of a meteorologist who travels to an isolated, deserted island for research, only to discover a Lovecraftian creature who's not quite as dangerous as she looks.
Gens, known for some brutal genre fare of the past, delivers his best film in years. Nelson Why it's great: Take a good section of The Purge , place it in a post-apocalyptic landscape with a bunch of brutal gangs clearly inspired by Walter Hill's The Warriors , set the whole thing up as an ultra-violent cross-country road trip, and toss in a legitimately worthwhile dash of romance. Oh, also it's a dark comedy. For a movie composed of so many familiar parts, The Domestics comes off as a surprisingly novel approach to full-bore mayhem.
That's what this low-key French import is like. Not huge waves of zombies coming up against machine gun fire; just one guy, trying to deal with the end of civilization, and doing everything he can to stay one step ahead of the damned freaks. It's a sparse, calm, and deliberate piece of zombie horror, but it's also rather unexpectedly fascinating. Smartly written and appreciably intense, Mohawk also benefits greatly from its three lead performances. Old-school and eerie, The Lodgers is about a pair of twins in s Ireland who come to accept that their home is haunted.
Things get a lot scarier when one of them starts pondering a new life elsewhere. Hardcore horror this is not, but if you're a fan of period pieces, haunted mansions, and things that go bump in the night, throw this one on your list. It's not quite as good as The Others but it's right in that wheelhouse. If the goal was to create a cool, creepy, family-friendly horror story in the vein of s The Lady in White , then mission accomplished. And if you love action, check out The Night Comes for Us. Holy crap. This one starts out as a "greedy relatives arguing about daddy's money" and quickly transforms into a collection of demonic possession insanity.
Here's another rock-solid indie chiller to throw on the list. It's about a kid who slowly becomes convinced that his father is an infamous serial killer who escaped justice years earlier.
Strong performances and a smart screenplay keep this potentially familiar tale from ever becoming obvious or redundant. It's about a former puppeteer who returns home to a dank little town and it's not pretty as his past starts to unravel all around him. The two leads are stellar, there's a consistent sense of gloom throughout, and we get a handful of unexpected visual jolts that are highly creepy.

Bonus points for the superlative musical score, which is frequently the secret weapon of many a clever indie filmmaker. Release date: January 5 Cast: Kate Bosworth, Thomas Jane, Jacob Tremblay Director: Mike Flanagan Gerald's Game Why it's great: Though debated by genre purists, this one definitely qualifies as a horror flick in my book; it just happens to be a "soft" horror film with an actual heart that parents could probably watch with their kids.
It's about a couple who adopts a kid whose dreams become physically real while he sleeps.
If you're looking for shocks and kills you may want to skip this one for now, but it's actually a very impressive piece of work from a very consistent horror filmmaker. Where to watch it: Stream on Netflix. It's about a pair of priests who travel to a distant "women's home" and discover all sorts of highly unpleasant things. If you don't like found-footage horror films, maybe give it a shot anyway. Release date: November 16 Cast: Madeline Brewer, Patch Darragh, Melora Walters Director: Daniel Goldhaber Why it's great: At first it feels like an exploitation thriller about a young "cam girl" sex worker being victimized by a stalker, but then it gradually turns into something quite a bit smarter than your basic B-movie fare.
The script has a lot to say about the fear of being alone, the act of voyeurism, and the loss of identity, but it also works as a twisty mind-bender of a thriller -- thanks in large part to the stellar performance s by Madeline Brewer. But is the movie any good? Heck yes. It's a noir-style paranoia thriller about a troubled woman who unwittingly signs herself up to be remanded to an asylum, and things get even twistier from there.
As they proved with their first two films, Benson and Moorhead are much more interested in cerebral horror than in jump scares and bloodbaths, but there are a ton of fascinating ideas to be found in this refined and highly intelligent chiller.
