Upcoming Horror/Sci-Fi Releases To Watch Out For

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.


Upcoming Horror Releases To Watch Out For – 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.


Upcoming Releases To Watch Out For – 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!


Upcoming Releases To Watch Out For – The 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.


Upcoming Releases To Watch Out For -The Arbos

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.


Upcoming Releases To Watch Out For – Macabro

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


Upcoming Horror Releases To Watch Out For – Gaia

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.


Upcoming Horror Releases 2021
Upcoming Horror Releases to watch out for – Censor

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.


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 DrinkwaterTim Woodall
Starring Anthony E. CabralRichard CotovskyJeff Dlugolecki |


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.

Updated: Neill Blomkamp’s New Horror Film – Plot & Release Date Added

Neill Blomkamp has shot a supernatural horror film

Another big win for us in 2020. District 9, Chappie, Elysium director and writer, Neill Blomkamp has secretly shot a supernatural horror movie. Deadline reports that the new unnamed project was shot in beautiful British Columbia and is made up of an entire Canadian cast

Even though Blomkamp’s previous movies had slight elements of horror, this will be his first full-on horror movie…and yes, the film will have some sci-fi elements to it. This is exciting news!.

Blomkamp hasn’t released a feature-film in years (since Chappie) he has been busy releasing short sci-fi flicks on YouTube. The pandemic put a temporary stop to his Taylor Kitsch action thriller, The Inferno.

His short sci-fis are amazing and well worth your time. He has been doing these via his production company, Oats Studios. They delve way more into the 18c-R-rated horror category. Why? Because he doesnt have some bigwig studio exec telling what he can and can not put in his film. He is the big chief. So, if you haven’t checked out Blomkamp and his talented af team from Oats Studios, then do yourself a favour and sort that right out. The shorts range anywhere from 3-minutes to 30-minutes long.

You can watch the full volume 1 on YouTube or on Amazon Prime Video. My personal favourite would have to be Zygote. A gruesome sci-fi cosmic body horror that’s an offspring of a H.P Lovecraft story and Dead Space. You can check out Zygote here! Enjoy You will soon find out how good Blomkamp and co are at creating nerve-shredding horror.

When more news on Blomkamp’s new supernatural horror film is released, you guys and gals will be one of the first to know.

UPDATED: We now have the title of Blomkamp’s new supernatural horror film. It is called DEMONIC.

Demonic will be released via IFC Midnight. A release date has been confirmed for August 20th. Mark that date in your calendar, folks!

Official Plot

In ‘Demonic’, a young woman unleashes terrifying demons when supernatural forces at the root of a decades old rift between mother and daughter are ruthlessly revealed in this horror-thriller from director Neill Blomkamp.

As always, thanks for reading.

UPDATED: Trailer For R-Rated HELLBOY Movie

The first trailer has arrived for Neil Marshall’s R-Rated HELLBOY Reboot


Listen, I am a fan of the original series. They were visually stunning and creative back in the day. My only problem was: They were kiddie-friendly. With a name like Hellboy, I want to see carnage and apocalyptic hellfire of epic proportions.

It looks like we will be getting just that and the poster below certainly confirms it more.

The poster perfectly sums up what Hellboy should look like. If you make the comparison to Ron Perlman’s Hellboy, you just realise how dated he actually was. The best thing about this poster is the red-hot lava-sword resting on his shoulder… Excalibur.


Our new Hellboy is played by David Harbour (Netflix original, Stranger Things). As stated on the poster, it is due for release April 12th 2019.

As far as I am aware, there are no plot details available at this time. This version will be directed by the great Neil Marshall.

Marshall first arrived on the scene back in 2002 with the phenomenal and much-loved low-budget horror, Dog Soldiers. He then went on to make the claustrophobic cave-dwelling masterpiece, The Descent. His other movies, Centurian and Doomsday both had moments of greatness but the flicks fell short, well, for me anyways. There were also rumours floating about the web that Marshall was in charge of bringing us the English-language remake of Norwegian mockumentary, comedy/horror Trollhunter.

Although I have not been a fan of all of his movies, I sincerely respect the level of violence he unleashes on-screen. His movies are most definitely not for kids. I hope he continues this trend with this new r-rated Hellboy reboot.

A new image was released showing us David Harbour in action as Hellboy

Our new Hellboy

Trailer For HELLBOY. Hope you enjoy.




A lot more news to follow as it is announced. As always, thanks for reading.

UPDATED: May The Devil Take You Is Now Available On Netflix

Timo Tjahjanto’s MAY THE DEVIL TAKE YOU Is Now Available To Stream On Netflix

It’s amazing to be able to confirm that even though we got to see…and loved, the long-awaited, brutally fantastic The Night Comes For Us (which I was waiting on since 2013), he already has a new Netflix horror movie, MAY THE DEVIL TAKE YOU ready for our demented viewing pleasure. I know you all agree with me when I say that it has been an awesome time lately for Netflix.

May The Devil Take You just appeared out of nowhere, well, for me anyway. I had no idea it was even in production. It’s very rare that something like this gets past me but when it does, I think it is the best feeling ever. Because I cover so much indie cinema, I usually have to wait for what seems like a lifetime to see the film. Think about how pissed off we get when we are waiting just one week to get the next episode of our favourite TV show. Well, it’s like that but only an average waiting time of around 52 weeks…sometimes a lot longer.

So, here is the official plot for MAY THE DEVIL TAKE YOU (Google)

At her father’s deathbed, Alfie learns that she and her family must give the Devil his due when he comes to collect on the pact made years before in this electrifying horror film from Indonesian master storyteller Timo Tjahjanto.

Indonesian director, Timo Tjahjanto first appeared on my radar with DARA, which (I think) was made into the feature MACABRE. He then gave us KILLERS which was a Japanese/Indonesian serial killer film. He then followed with the Iko Uwais and Julie Estelle actioner HEADSHOT.

The trailer was uploaded over 2-months ago. It has no English subtitles. That shouldn’t put you off. It looks pretty dam creepy. If you’re familiar with this man’s work, you’ll know he is a master of his art.

Enjoy the trailer. As always, thanks for reading.

As of today, you can watch May The Devil Take You on Netflix! Enjoy.

10 New Non-English Horror/Sci-Fi Movies To Hook You Up With (2017)

10 new non-English-language horror movies coming our way soon.

There may be a lack in American or English-language horror movies but we have yet to witness some great Foreign horror. Hopefully, there will something in this list for everyone, I hope you enjoy.



Non-English horror movies

Country: Norway

New vampire horror/comedy from Norway. Trailer looks to have a bit of everything that comes with a classic vampire tale. Looks to be quite gruesome with the FX looking to be some of the best in the business.

Very rare that horror and comedy work well together but this looks to have the best of both worlds; the darkness, fangs, blood and nudity that we see in every respectable vampire films, blended in with some dark, twisted and morbid humour….and buckets of blood.


A Christian farmer searching for a higher purpose to life falls into sin and wakes up as the Prince of Darkness in the city of Stavanger, Norway.


Non-English Horror Movies LES AFFAMES

Country: Canada (French)

Just because we can never have enough zombie movies. I posted a short clip on my Moviehooker Facebook Page of a scene from the movie. A woman dressed in a business suit pulls over her car, grabs a machete, turns on some suitable slaughtering vibes and proceeds to slice-and-dice a  near by zombie.


In a small, remote village in upstate Quebec, things have changed. Locals are not the same anymore – their bodies are breaking down and they developed an outlandish attraction for flesh.



Horror movie Japan VAMPIRE CLAY


Country: Japan

OK, this looks bonkers. Japan has been home to some of best horror that the world has to offer. When I heard about Vampire Clay I had to look further into the film.  A plot stating  “A plasticine demon devours the denizens of a rural art school” wasn’t gonna cut it for me.

This looks to a neat little creature-feature. And yes, it’s about a plasticine monster killing the students of an art school, so what is not to love about that.

Directed by renowned Japanese make-up artist Soichi Umezawa who made his directorial debut in ABC’s Of Death 2 “Segment (Y) Is For Youth”.


A plasticine demon devours the denizens of a rural art school (Best. Plot. Ever)


horror and sci-fi movies NORWAY Thelma

Country: Norway

I first posted the stunning poster for Norwegian sci-fi adventure movie, Thelma a few days back on my Moviehooker Facebook Page.

Due to a weak but intriguing synopsis on IMDb, It wasn’t long before I hunted down the trailer.  After watching the trailer I none the wiser, I just knew this was something that we would all love.


A woman begins to fall in love, only to discover that she has fantastic powers.


horror and sci fi movies BLACK HOLLOW CAGE

Country: Switzerland 

Not very often we get the chance to witness any horror or sci-fi from Switzerland, so this is very exciting. Judging by the short plot, Black Hollow Cage sounds like will be an indie sci-fi that would remind you of the fantastic Spanish time-travel movie, Timecrimes. Not that we have a similar plot, but using very little cast members, that with the events taking place in a secluded area. These are all the ingredients of an indie sci-fi masterpiece! – you heard it here first, folks!


A girl who lives secluded in a house in the woods with the only company of her father and a wolfhound finds among the trees a mysterious cubic device with the ability to change the past.


horror thriller movie The Bar 2017

From the director of the whacky and wonderful Witching & BitchingÁlex de la Iglesia. Although we don’t have any zombies, monsters, or werewolves, The Bar is still described as a horror movie. This is humans Vs humans horror. If you’re familiar with Witching & Bitching then you’ll know how bat-shit-crazy The Bar could get.


In bustling downtown Madrid, a loud gunshot and two mysterious deaths trap a motley assortment of common urbanites in a decrepit central bar, while paranoia and suspicion force the terrified regulars to turn on each other.


Horror movie I Remember You

Country: Iceland

I Remember You is an Icelandic supernatural horror. For some reason, every Icelandic movie I’ve watched I’m always left stunned by the cinematography. There is no denying that Iceland is a beautiful country, but man, they sure can make it look bleak AF. The first film I realised this was the fantastic Jar City, and it’s something I’ve always noticed since. It ain’t a bad thing, in fact, it works in its favour. I am sure if we have a lighter, more family-friendly genre then it would depict Iceland in all its glory. But, because we’re watching horror, the tone had to be set differently.


A story about a young man and woman who move into a small abandoned town in Iceland to renovate an old house. Little do they know the town has a dark history.



horror movie Valley Of Shadows

Country: Norway

Everything I’ve read has pointed to Valley Of Shadows being a Scandinavian werewolf movie. Shot in a remote part of Norway, it looks to be a film that is heavily focused on its atmospheric surroundings with minimal dialogue and heavy visuals

The directorial debut from Jonas Matzow Gulbrandsen.


In this mystery drama, we follow Aslak (6) in a quest for answers about recent tragic events. Valley of Shadows is a film in the tradition of the Scandinavian Gothic.



Country: Italy

A Sicilian Ghost Story has been described as more of a thriller than a horror. However, there is still supernatural elements to the movie, also a gruesome death – so it makes the list.


In a little Sicilian village at the edge of a forest, Giuseppe, a boy of 13, vanishes. Luna, his classmate who loves him, refuses to accept his mysterious disappearance. She rebels against the silence and complicity that surround her, and to find him she descends into the dark world which has swallowed him up and which has a lake as its mysterious entrance. Only their indestructible love will be able to bring her back along.


horror movie PENGABDI SETAN

From Joko Anwar, the director behind the amazing 2009 movie The Forbidden Door and more recently, Ritual. 

Not so sure if this film is my sort of thing as it looks very much like The Ring. I am only judging this by the trailer, so I will pass full judgement when I finally get to see the flick.


After dying of a strange illness he suffered for 3 years, a mother returned home to pick up her son.






Ridley Scott Eyeing Remake Rights For THE WAILING

One of the best films to come out of 2016 was Na Jong Hin’s, The Wailing

Now, it has been revealed that Ridley Scott’s production company is eyeing the rights for an American remake.

the-wailingFirstly, although I have total faith in Mr Scott, I just can’t see this working well as a remake. Why?, because the main fuel for the story line is one that is steeped in Korean culture and something I don’t think can work anywhere else other than S.Korea.

It does look like they’re being careful, though. In a recent interview with Screen Daily, One of The Wailing’s producer’s expressed their doubts about a possible remake

“The Wailing’ is so strong that I don’t think it would be easy to do a Western remake, and it will be important who directs it. So I told him I think the only director who could do the remake is Na Hong Jin. But we are still in early stages of talks.”

The thoughts of Na Hong-jin directing an American version of The Wailing is intriguing AF but I still can’t see it work in any other country other than S.K.

What I would love to see is Na Hong Jin tackle a classic American serial-killer drama and shoot it his way, in South Korea. I mean, what if we learnt that there was a South Koren remake of Se7en from the director of The Chaser and The WailingI think that would work on so many levels.

The Wailing Official Plot 

A stranger arrives in a little village and soon after a mysterious sickness starts spreading. A policeman is drawn into the incident and is forced to solve the mystery in order to save his daughter.

Thanks for reading.

More information to follow on the western remake of The Wailing as it’s announced


New South Korean Cinema – 5 New South Korean Films You Need To Know About

5 new films coming our way from South Korea to hook you up with.

A nice blend of South Korean,  horror, action, crime and comedy. I hope you enjoy.

Gokseong (The Wailing)

Goksung is the new South Korean film from the director and writer of The Chaser, and The Yellow Sea. It is, without a doubt the number one film on this list that I am most looking forward to seeing.

The Chaser, and The Yellow Sea movies are among my faves in S.Korean cinema. Two very different films that I strongly believe are among the best in their genres. If you haven’t already them checked out then you will need to put them on the list. Leo DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way own the rights to the American remake of The Chaser but it has been laying dormant for years.

So, I’m a little more than excited to be checking out Na Hong Jin’s next feature.  We know for certain that this man can deliver some captivating cinema.

The poster already looks stunning and it looks to be set in a beautiful part of the world. I am almost certain that the title of the movie is a reference to Gokseong, which is a county in South Jeolla Province, South Korea.

The story takes place in a rural village and focuses on a police detective ( Kwak Do-Won, The Attorney, A Company Man, The Berlin File) who gets assigned and has to solve some bizarre murders.

Updated post: We got to see The Wailing and review it as part of our Fantasia Festival coverage

Fatal Intuition

Fatal Intuition is the first film from director Yoon Joon-Hyeong. The film grabbed my attention because it looks to have a unique story-line. The film is about a woman who has a gift  – she can see people’s death and how they will die just before it happens.

The brother of a murdered woman teams-up with her and uses her special abilities to help find the guy who killed his sister – and all the evidence points to a local pharmacist

Sounds like a nice premise and the chance for a great blend of horror and thriller.  It also sounds like we could have another really twisted tale to watch out for.



The Exclusive: Beat The Devil’s Tattoo

If this film plays out like I’m thinking it will, then it looks like we’re in for another solid S.Korean serial-killer flick.

The story focuses on a journalist that is going through some serious personal issues at home. When he breaks the news of a new serial-killer stalking the streets, he becomes the hottest writer at work. As the cops keep pushing at him some evidence he learns that there is no serial-killer and the news he received was false but he continues to write more stories to maintain his popularity.

And from that news it looks like a copycat serial-killer is born and starts killing people using the methods that were published in the articles.

I’m sure this film is quite dark but judging from the trailer it looks like a lot of fun, Although I like my S.Korean serial-killer movies to be as dark as the night, I am looking forward to something a little different – will they get it right?


Another directorial début  – this time from Jung Hee-Sung. Jung Hee-Sung won an award at the Busan Film Festival some years ago for her short, Dinner At Lee’s House.

Eclipse or AKA, Cutter is described as a teen/crime/drama, which might put some people off but I can assure you that even if this is a teen movie then it is more than likely not going to be for a teen audience.

The film focuses on a new student who gets involved with a loner at his new school. The two new besties then go off and commit a sex crime and the film will be based around that.

In a press-conference after the film’s first screening, the director/writer said why she chose to go down this dark path for her first feature-length…

“The film has greater emphasis on the students’ psychological context rather than their perception of the nature of crime,”

A previous movie that was reviewed on moviehooker focused on the dark side of cyber-bullying and suicide within social media – the film had an all-teen cast and was still dark as fuck (read full review for Socialphobia).


A Violent Prosecutor

The film tells the story of a no-bull-shit, strict prosecutor that is known for handing out harsh sentences to those who commit crime.

He pisses people off that much that he is framed for a murder and sent to prison – the same one  he sent everyone else throughout the years, so as you can imagine he ain’t the most popular resident at the prison

He spends his time behind bars trying to figure out who framed him and set him up for the murder. He gets the help of a con artist who he previously sent-down to help him catch the real killer while at the same time try and avoid being killed by the very inmates he sent down.

Although I would prefer this flick to be an all-out hardcore action/crime film,  A Violent Prosecutor has been categorised as a comedy/crime movie. Every comedy that I have seen from S.K has always been great and filled with great laugh-out-loud, non-obvious comedy.

It still looks like its gonna be pretty hardcore though.


I think the premise for Island could do just that, it sounds like it could be a nice, creepy ghost story.

When a man looses his family in an accident – he moves into his family home which he inherited. The house is situated on an Island, and locals believe that a supernatural force resides there.

Thanks for reading


Tim Burton Confirms Beetlejuice 2

"Oh, yeah. Here I am come, baby."....again...FINALLY!


In two years time we will see Tim Burton’s, Beetlejuice turn 30 years old. There has always been chat of a sequel but things really only started to movie forward in the last 2 years –  we knew Winona Ryder was onboard and was more than optimistic that the others would follow but nothing was official.

I have been trying my best to keep you all up to date with it’s progress so I am pleased to confirm that according to Showbizspy, Tim Burton has now 100% confirmed the movie – Mr Burton said in an interview…..

The film is a go and has been approved by the Warner Bros. team, we have talked with the cast members we wanted for the film and they are all on board, this includes both Winona and Michael. We have the script in hand everything is in place all we need to do now is get ready to start filming


I am sure you will agree that Michael Keaton has re-vamped his career in the last few years. His roles in  Alejandro González Iñárritu’s, Birdman and more recently, oscar winner, Spotlight have catapulted Keaton back into the land of the A-listers — and rightly so, both roles were exceptional! It’s going to be soooo good to see Keaton re-visit this character – it’s been nearly 30 years, I’m sure Keaton has a lot of new skills and will be able to give us a performance that fans of the original need while at the same time creating a whole generation of Beetlejuice fansFacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail
