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.
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.
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.
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!
