5 Horror Movies On Our Watchlist

Here at Screen Fluent it’s no secret that we love a good horror flick; be it a fearsome slasher or a paranormal scare-fest. Here’s a quick list of 5 horror movies – some upcoming, some released – that we can’t wait to sink our teeth into.

Fear Street

If there’s one thing Netflix always seem to get right, it’s casting. The upcoming Fear Street trilogy does not seem to be straying from this pattern, boasting the talents of Stranger Things’ Maya Hawke and Sadie Sink. Based on R.L. Stine’s best-selling novels of the same name, the trilogy will cover three time-periods that are all connected by a series of bloody and horrific murders. The first part of the R-Rated series drops on Netflix on July 2nd.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

Possession-based horror movies are our greatest weakness, and we have no doubts that the latest instalment in The Conjuring franchise will change that. Paranormal Investigators Ed & Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson & Vera Farmiga) return for their third film, on a mission to defend a man accused of murder. His defence? That demonic possession is responsible for his gruesome crimes.

A Quiet Place Part 2

A follow-up to John Krasinski’s intense 2018 blockbuster, in which a family of three attempt to navigate a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by creatures with killer hearing. This looks to be one of the few modern horror sequels that manages to succeed in copying its predecessors’ formula whilst still keeping viewers on their toes – literally.

Saint Maud

Winner of Best Cinematography at the British Independent Film Awards, Saint Maud tells the story of a hospice nurse recently converted to the Roman Catholic Church, who quickly becomes obsessed with saving the soul of her terminally-ill patient.

New Mutants

Truth be told, this movie is one we couldn’t wait for that quickly slipped by us after many delays and reshoots. As huge Marvel fans, we’re still eager to see this when it finally lands on streaming services. The film dropped on HBO Max in April, and rumour has it that its due to be launched on Disney+ in the UK before the end of the year – fingers crossed!

  1. I was going to start watching Feat Street tonight. Kind of a cool concept with the three parts all being at years apart. I thought the Conjuring 3 was terrible… just like all the others. They’re too predictable to the point where I can call every minute moment. Its not that its basically jump scares… I’m not entirely in the camp of “NO JUMP SCARES.” Just do it right.

    1. Ah, I enjoyed the first two Conjuring movies but then I am a sucker for jump scares, even the poorly timed ones! We’ll be sure to write a review of the latest once we’ve seen it! Thanks for reading ☺️

  2. Just saw the Conjuring, but I’m biased because I like all of the movies in that Universe, and anything about Ed and Lorraine Warren. Saw the New Mutants last summer and it’s was just ok, but it’s still a good movie. That whole universe is a little out of my wheelhouse. (LOL). I’m definitely down for A Quiet Place, that’s already on the agenda. I haven’t heard of the other two but I’m always up for something different.

    If you’re looking for some other movies…there’s an older one called Hell House LLC which really had me hiding behind my hands but I loved it. There’s also a great documentary on Amazon Prime called “In Search of Darkness” which highlights some of the origins behind all the campy 80s horror movies. Good stuff.
