We are back with a new list of upcoming or recently released horror films for 2024. And, as always, there’s quite a variety in here; werewolves, vampires, occult and serial killers so definitely something for every sort of horror lover
Frank Grillo and Lou Diamond Phillips star in Werewolves (previously titled Year 2). A group of scientists must find a cure for an infectious disease that is turning infected into werewolves.
This sounds like a great concept for a werewolf movie. I’m a big fan of Frank Grillo and it’s always great to see Lou Diamond Phillips on the screen. Werewolves is directed by Steven C. Miller (Marauders).
Ok, I am not 100% certain about Hellhounds but it is going on the list anyway. But hey, if B-movie werewolf movies are your thing then this one could be for you.
A gang of biker werewolves start to hunt a group of werewolf hunters known as The Silver Bullets.
Abigail is a new vampire movie about a group of criminals who kidnap the ballerina daughter of a wealthy crime family in her large mansion. What they don’t know, is that Abigail is a bloodsucking hound from hell.
The trailer really gave me Livide (French vampire film by the directors of Inside) vibes…and that is far from a bad thing.
LOVELY, DARK AND DEEP
Lovely, Dark and Deep played at last year’s Fantasia International Film Festival and received great reviews. XYZ Films is handling the distribution.
The film follows a newly hired forest ranger who is in charge of a large national park. Years ago, something happened in the park where she now works. The mystery has been eating at her for years
A QUIET PLACE: DAY ONE
One of my favourite mainstream franchises. I think A Quiet Place is a very clever film. Day One will focus on the beginning of the alien invasion and will follow a new group of protagonists.
The trailer was just released and it looks like A Quiet Place: Day One is another solid entry into the franchise.
The Funeral (Cenaze) is a new Turkish horror film. It follows a man called Cemal who drives a hearse for a living. He is secretly hired by a family to transport the body of a young girl. Things start to get strange when he hears noises coming inside of the coffin and he realises the girl is undead and craving human flesh.
I am a big fan of Turkish horror, so I am looking forward to seeing what they can do with the zombie genre. This is meant to be a dreary, depressing take on the sub-genre and has been compared to Return Of The Living Dead Part 3 only without the campy sub-plot.
Who doesn’t love a bit of Nicolas Cage? He has certainly been on a roll lately and choosing fantastic, dark and weird indie roles rather than going for the big Hollywood productions.
Longlegs is a new serial killer film and it looks superb. I can not confirm but it looks like Nicolas Cage is the serial killer. The trailer was great, Longlegs looks like a dark arthouse film along the lines of The House That Jack Built.
A detective is assigned to an unsolved serial killer case and gets dragged into the dark and dangerous world of the occult.
Choi Min Sik stars as a shaman who is tasked with exhuming a tomb and accidentally unleashes a vengeful demon.
Written and directed by Jang Jae-hyun and co-starring Kim Go-eun, Yoo Hae-jin and Lee Do-hyun. We can expect to see Exhuma released next month.
