Eight Horror Movies Coming In Autumn/Winter 2017
Winter is coming, and with it eight spine-tingling horror movies.
Check them out here:
The latest adaptation of Stephen King’s IT will see Bill Skarsgard (Hemlock Grove) take on the iconic role of Pennywise – the creepy clown that makes other such monsters look positively kind in comparison.
As Pennywise kills and eats children in a small New England town, it falls to a group of friends – the so-called “Losers Club” – to stop him…
It might be about kids, but as repeatedly emphasised by director Andres Muschietti, this film is certainly not for kids…
Starring James Franco, Taryn Manning (Orange is the New Black) and Francesca Eastwood (Heroes Reborn), The Vault sees two sisters forced to rob a bank, to save their brother’s life.
The problem? It’s no ordinary bank… There’s something supernatural going on inside, and robbing the place is going to be easier said than done…
A remake of the 1990 classic, Flatliners is about a group of medical students (Ellen Page, Nina Dobrev and James Norton) attempting to have “near death” experiences by flat-lining, and then shocking themselves back to life.
Going to the edge of the abyss has dark consequences, however, and before too long they realise that their lives are in real jeopardy.
A group of old uni friends meet up for a perfectly pleasant hiking trip in The Ritual, only to ruin it by taking a shortcut through some nightmarish forests. They wind up getting stalked by a “menacing presence” (supernatural or human – we’re not sure), as this looks like Blair Witch but better…
Rafe Spall (Black Mirror), Robert James-Collier (Downton Abbey), Sam Troughton (Robin Hood) and Arsher Ali (Line of Duty) star.
Happy Death Day
Basically a f*cked up version of Groundhog Day, Happy Death Day sees a college student reliving the day that she gets murdered, again and again and again.
To break the cycle, she has to figure out the identity of her killer, and save her own life.
The eighth instalment in the Saw franchise, Jigsaw looks at what happens when mutilated bodies start to show up around the city. The police investigation points to one man – the titular Jigsaw – but he’s long dead…
We’re guessing that the killer is some kind of copycat, but in any case, this should be good. The directors have promised that Saw 8 will be “more fun” than its predecessors, but every bit as gory. Which, you know, is nice.
We still don’t know the title of this Cloverfield Movie, but we do have some details on the plot. It will reportedly see a group of astronauts make a “shocking discovery” aboard their space station, and subsequently have to fight for their own survival.
(We’re going to hazard a guess and say that it’s a Cloverfield prequel, and that whatever they discover on the ship ends up terrorising the Earth in the original 2008 movie).
Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Black Mirror), Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids), Daniel Bruhl (Rush), David Oyelowo (Selma) and Elizabeth Debicki (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) star.
He’s Out There
Yvonne Strahovski (who recently found fame in The Handmaid’s Tale) stars in He’s Out There – a horror about a mother and her two young daughters who find themselves caught up in a nightmare while holidaying at (you can probably guess) a remote cabin in the woods.
From The Last House on the Left director Dennis Iliadis, this is expected to hit cinemas in December..
Expected December 2017
