15 Pet Sematary

Pet Sematary

Starring: John Lithgow, Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, Naomi Frenette
Director: Kevin Kolsch, Dennis Widmyer

The Pet Sematary remake based mostly on the works of Stephen King is about to launch in April, starring John Lithgow. And, in the event you assume this is going to only be one other shitty horror remake, assume once more. In accordance with the early critiques from its premiere at SXSW, it’s probably even higher than the unique Pet Sematary movie, which to my memory has literally by no means happened within the horror style.

For these unfamiliar with the unique or the novel it’s based mostly on, it follows the Creed household who moves to a small town in Maine to find that there’s a Native American burial ground hidden in their yard that defies demise, setting off horrific occasions.

In fact, the film is rated R for “bloody violence”.

Starring: Stanley Tucci, Kiernan Shipka, Miranda Otto
Director: John R. Leonetti

Netflix has a brand new unique upcoming horror film revolving round bats (although they’re officially described as “a deadly, primeval species.” Primarily, The Silence seems like a extra sinister, gore-filled model of The Birds, however with bats, meets A Quiet Place. It’s based mostly on the e-book of the same identify by Tim Lebbon, which within the description of that guide reads, “to scream, even to whisper, is to summon death.”

We’re all the time down for creature options here at Nerd A lot?, and The Silence seems to be like one of the higher creature features we’ve seen in quite some time.

Watch the The Silence trailer above; it seems promising.

Director: Nicolas Pesce

The Grudge remake, now simply referred to as Grudge, is being directed by Nicolas Pesce, director of 2016’s The Eyes of My Mom.

22 Annabelle Comes House (Chapter 3)

Launch Date: June 28, 2019
Starring: Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Mckenne Grace
Director: Gary Dauberman

Whereas the original Annabelle film was absolute trash, the Conjuring franchise has some wins underneath its belt. In truth, even the second Annabelle movie was better than the unique. Perhaps the third time’s the appeal here, and newcomer director Gary Dauberman (answerable for writing It, The Nun, and It: Chapter 2) may surprise us.

The third Annabelle movie might make or break the collection. If you want to see the place it falls in The Conjuring universe, take a look at Display Rant’s tremendous helpful timeline.

23 The New Mutants

The New Mutants

Launch Date: August 2, 2019
Starring: Maisie Williams, Charlie Heaton, Anya Taylor-Pleasure
Director: Josh Boone

The New Mutants is principally stated to be a horror movie set within the X-Males universe, and I don’t assume I’ve ever heard something that sounded as cool as that assertion. And although we’re not anticipating it to be really scary, it deserves to be on our listing of upcoming new horror films of 2019 (you realize, if it truly releases this yr).

We all know that New Mutants has gone by way of reshoots (with more planned) that nearly put it in improvement hell. The truth is, we’re on the point now where even star Maisie Williams is saying “who knows when the f**k that’s gonna come out.”

Primarily, the problem here is that Disney purchased Fox and messed every part up for followers as it’s caught in authorized limbo. And for those who take a look at Williams’ current Rolling Stone interview, she even mentions that her co-star, Charlie Heaton, doesn’t have any clue what’s happening, either. Sounds to me like The New Mutants will possible be delayed into 2020, but here’s to hoping issues clear up quickly.

24 Midsommar


Release Date: August 9, 2019
Starring: Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor
Director: Ari Aster

A24’s Midsommar will comply with a pair who travels to Sweden to go to some the rural hometown of some pals that is recognized for its mid-summer pageant. As an alternative, they understand that a pagan cult is behind an increasingly violent and weird competitors.

As you possibly can see in Midsommer trailer above, there’s an fascinating visual high quality to the movie, which has a kind of brilliant and shiny vibe that you simply simply don’t see in the horror genre. I feel that’s going to work within the film’s favor, and Midsommer is going to surprise us with a terrifying tale.

25 Scary Stories to Inform in the Darkish

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

Release Date: August 9, 2019
Starring: Gill Bellows, Dean Norris, Javier Botet
Director: André Øvredal

Scary Tales to Inform in the Dark is an upcoming horror movie based mostly on the youngsters’s books of the identical identify written by Alvin Schwartz, which pulls closely from legend and folklore.

The movie will specifically cope with a gaggle of young teens who attempt to unravel the thriller of a collection of ugly deaths in their small hometown.

The reaction to the Scary Tales to Tell in the Darkish trailer that just launched yesterday is overwhelmingly constructive, and we wouldn’t be stunned to see this film grow to be a scary film franchise that we’ll be seeing for many years to return.

26 47 Meters Down: Uncaged / 47 Meters Down: The Next Chapter

47 Meters Down: Uncaged / 47 Meters Down: The Next Chapter

Launch Date: August 16, 2019
Starring: Sophie Nelisse, Nia Lengthy, John Corbett
Director: Johannes Roberts

The unique 47 Meters Down made a whopping $61.7M on a measly $5.3M price range — so, OF COURSE, we’re getting a sequel. The sequel is officially named 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, and it’ll inform the story of four teenagers who scuba in an underwater city solely to seek out themselves in the firm of the deadliest shark species within the ocean.

Unfortunately, the film’s unique June 28th launch date was pushed again to August 16 to avoid going up towards Annabelle in theaters. That is sensible, plus 47 Meters Down completely makes more sense to cap off the summer time with a night on the drive-ins.

27 It: Chapter Two

It: Chapter Two

Launch Date: September 6, 2019
Starring: Invoice Skarsgard, Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy
Director: Andy Muschietti

27 years later, the Loser’s Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating telephone call brings them again.

It must be no surprise that New Line Cinema jumped on the It sequel as quickly as they did, given the key success they are already seeing with the It reboot. We know nothing just yet, apart from the fact that Muschietti will direct, Skarsgard will reprise his position as Pennywise, and the release date is about for September 6, 2019. It is going to be fascinating to see who will sign-up to play the older counterparts of every character.

28 Zombieland Double Tap
