History Of Evil – February 23, 2024

The Vampire Diaries’ Paul Wesley is returning to the horror genre for History of Evil, which will be avaliable to stream with a Shudder subscription later this month. Per People, the movie takes place in an imagined future where America has become a theocratic police state after “war and corruption plagued” the nation. It follows Wesley as Ron, a husband and father who is on the run for the militia and takes shelter in a remote safe house. But the house’s “dark past” soon begins to eat at the family.

Imaginary – March 8, 2024

Lionsgate and Blumhouse have teamed up to bring a movie called Imaginary to audiences in early 2024. Truth or DareFantasy Island and The Curse of Bridge Hollow director Jeff Wadlow is helming the movie about a woman who returns to her childhood home to discover her imaginary friend was real all along, still there, left behind and quite unhappy about being abandoned by her. Oddly enough, a more family friendly exploration of imaginary friends is coming in May with John Krasinski’s IF.

Immaculate – March 20, 2024

Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney is set to lead a horror movie called Immaculate, which will have her once again collaborating with Michael Mohan after starring in his 2021 movie, The Voyeurs. Immaculate will be about a devoutly religious woman fulfilling a new role in an Italian convent when she finds out her home has some “dark and horrifying secrets,” per Deadline. You can check out the Immaculate trailer ahead of checking it out.

Late Night With The Devil – March 22, 2024

Late Night With The Devil joins found-footage thrillers with a unique premise set on the set of a fictional 1970s variety and late-night talk show called Night Owls with Jack Delroy. David Dastmalchian plays the late night host as a broadcast from Halloween night in 1977 showcases some creepy occurrences when Delroy interviews a parapsychologist and the subject of her new book, who is the only survivor of a Satanic church’s mass suicide. The movie premiered a South by Southwest last spring to rave reviews, including from Stephen King.

Winnie-The-Pooh: Blood And Honey 2 – March 26, 2024

After one of the wildest concepts ever for a horror movie haunted 2023 with Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey, Hollywood is going to honor us with a second helping with a sequel. After the $100,000 British slasher turned a profit with a 5.2 million box office haul another movie is well on the way and expected to come out around one year after the first installment. Per the writer/director to THR, in the second movie Pooh and his friends will be “leaving the 100 Acre Wood to take their fight to the quiet community of Ashdown!”

The First Omen – April 5, 2024

It’s been over 30 years since a movie from The Omen franchise has been released in the form of the TV movie, Omen IV: The Awakening. After that film was not received well, it’s understandable why its studio took a break from the supernatural horror series, but it’s coming back this spring with The First Omen. The movie will serve as a prequel to the original 1976 The Omen as an American woman is sent to work at a church in Rome and comes across a disturbing conspiracy about the birth of an Antichrist. You can watch The First Omen trailer before checking it out.

Abigail  – April 19, 2024

Scream has been revitalized in the past few years with the help of filmmakers, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett. After making the fifth and sixth Scream installments, they are helming a previously untitled Universal monster movie starring Scream star Melissa Barrera along with Kathryn Newton, Dan Stevens, Kevin Durand and Angus Cloud. The movie is a reimagining of the 1936 Universal Classic Monsters movie Dracula’s Daughter. The spring horror release is about a group of kidnappers who are tasked with capturing and watching over the daughter of a powerful figure, Abigail. Little do they know, the girl is really a vampire child that will hunt them down one by one.

Sting – May 2, 2024

If you’re afraid of spiders, Sting might be the exposure therapy you need! The 2024 movie coming to theaters will confront arachnophobia as it follows a 12-year-old girl  named Charlotte who raises her own spider. But, unlike the beloved classic Charlotte’s Web, in Sting her spider becomes a flesh-eating monster.

Cuckoo – May 3, 2024

Along with Sydney Sweeney and the late Angus Cloud starring in horror movies this year, Euphoria’s Hunter Schafer is also joining the genre for a movie of her own. Schafer stars in Cuckoo, which is about a teenager who is forced to move in with her family to a resort to unexpected terrors under the surface. The movie, which also stars Dan Stevens and Jessica Henwick, will premiere at this March’s South by Southwest before coming to theaters a couple months later.

Tarot – May 10, 2024

Horror fans can also look forward to Screen Gems’ Tarot this May, starring Spider-Man actor Jacob Batalon, Alana Boden, Adain Bradley and Avantika. Previously titled Horrorscope, the film is about a group of college friends who get their horoscopes read and then begin dying off in ways that are connected to their readings. It’s based on the 1992 novel by Nicholas Adams and serves as a feature film debut for writer/directors Anna Halberg and Spenser Cohen, per Deadline.

The Strangers: Chapter 1 – May 17, 2024

Renny Harlin, the filmmaker who has been behind movies like The Long Kiss GoodnightDie Hard 2 and A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: A Dream Master, has apparently crafted a horror trilogy for The Strangers after two prior films were made in the franchise. He plans to release three “chapters” of the story starring Madelaine Petsch and Froy Gutierrez. The Strangers will bring back the three murderous masked strangers when a couple’s car breaks down in Oregon and they are forced to spend the night in a desolate Airbnb.

The Watchers – June 7, 2024

M. Night Shyamalan’s daughter, Ishana Night Shyamalan has her directorial debut lined up with The Watchers. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Dakota Fanning will star as an artist who gets stranded in an “expansive, untouched forest” in western Ireland and unknowingly becomes trapped with three strangers that are being “watched and stalked by mysterious creatures at night.” Ishana wrote the film based on a novel of the same name by A.M. Shine. Plus, her famed father is producing the film and New Line won a bidding war to back the movie.

A Quiet Place: Day One – June 28, 2024

John Krasinski has successfully created an intriguing and scary world where humanity must stay silent in order to survive the aliens who have inhabited Earth with the Quiet Place movies. After A Quiet Place Part II became a theatrical hit, amidst pandemic challenges, the next Quiet Place movie is on the way in 2024. This one will be a standalone Quiet Place spinoff that is directed by Pig’s Michael Sarnoski based on an idea by Krasinski, to what we imagine will dive into the invasion’s origins. The third Quiet Place film from the core franchise is still expected to come after this movie, as well, but currently remains in development. You can check out the first A Quiet Place: Day One trailer ahead of its summer release.

So many horror movies to be excited for in 2024 and beyond! We’ll keep you in the loop on news and updates on these coming titles as the new year unfolds.
