We are back again with a brand new list for you. This time focusing on Upcoming Horror & Sci-Fi Movies releasing soon.
2021 is looking to be fantastic year for genre releases. Yesterday I published 4 new werewolf flicks that have recently been released or are releasing soon. Now, I can continue with a new list of upcoming horror releases. I hope you enjoy it and find some films that you can look forward to in the near future.
IN THE EARTH
Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Free Fire, Sightseers) is back with a micro-budget horror movie shot during the pandemic.
Not a lot is known about the plot but focuses on a woman getting lost in a forest with the woods coming to life around her.
Wheatley has been attached to direct the sequel to The Meg, the follow-up to the Jason Statham and Rainn Wilson killer shark flick!. I am so looking forward to seeing what he can do with a Meg sequel. I am sure Mr Wheatley can do a great job. But what he can do, and what he is allowed to do is two very different things.
THE SPINE OF THE NIGHT
Who is up for some ultra-violent animation inspired by the work of Conan the Barbarian creators? The Spine of the Night gives us just that. A dark fantasy epic full of insane violence featuring necromancers and winged assassins!
SOUND OF VIOLENCE
A deaf woman who regains her hearing in the most unfortunate way ever: during the brutal murder of her family. She becomes obsessed with creating new sounds with vicious violence and human flesh after learning that she might be losing her hearing again.
What? This sounds unique and macabre af. I wonder what human flesh sounds like? I can’t wait to find out.
The Arbors has been described as a Lovecraftian sci-fi thriller. I have read some reviews and to be honest, they ain’t been that positive. I am still intrigued though, I am a fan of slow-burn sci-fi but maybe this was just a little slow for some.
There was a flick called Possum that was released a couple of years ago. It took an awful thrashing, but personally, I loved it – it was atmospheric, unnerving and creepy AF!. So yeah, bring on The Arbors
Set in a small town, a recluse locksmith finds a small creature in his house that slowly starts to grow revealing it’s terrifying true form.
Another film listed as released in 2019 but it is slowly making its way to us. Macabro sounds like my sort of flick. It is inspired by the real-life murders of the necrophilic brothers of Nova Friburgo. Two brothers were accused of a string of brutal murders in the late 90s’in Brazil.
It is backed and produced by the producers of the fantastic Wagner Moura starring Elite Squad
Directed by Jaco Bouwer and stars Monique Rockman, Carel Nel, Alex van Dyk and Anthony Oseyemi.
A park ranger encounters a father and son living a post-apocalyptic lifestyle in the woods. They have detached from society, have their own rules and their own religion. After their cabin gets attacked by strange human-like beings, she realises that there is a dangerous truth to the father and son’s apocalyptic existence.

From what I am reading, Prano Bailey-Bond’s directorial debut, Censor is going to be one of the greats. I have read nothing but great things about it. A British horror described as both intelligent and disturbing.
The story is about a mysterious video cassette (yay!) that communicates directly with a woman about her sister’s unexplained disappearance.
BROADCAST SIGNAL INTRUSION
Another one that features some sort of evil VHS tapes. A video archivist comes across a series of dark and doomy pirate recordings and becomes obsessed when trying to find out the horrid truth behind them.
Directed by Jacob Gentry
Written by Phil Drinkwater, Tim Woodall
Starring Anthony E. Cabral, Richard Cotovsky, Jeff Dlugolecki |
WOODLANDS DARK AND DAYS BEWITCHED: A HISTORY OF FOLK HORROR
The last one on the list is a documentary that explores the history of cinematic folk horror. Hey, maybe not for everyone but I love the genre and the real-life tales of madness that comes with folk horror.
This documentary has a staggering runtime of 193mins. That’s 3-hours of pure cinematic folk horror knowledge. Sign me up!
That’s it for this list. Make sure to check back soon to get hooked up with more movie and tv recommends. As always, thanks for reading.
