A new year means new movies. Specifically, that means new horror movies, which let’s be real, are some of the most exciting releases. We all know what we’re going to get from a Marvel movie, or an Oscar-bait drama like, say, Spencer (although it deserves the praise). But horror is a genre where some truly weird stuff can happen. Who doesn’t want to see, say, Sebastian Stan play a charming cannibal or the meta-filled murder spree in the fifth Scream film?
This October, in response to the Halloween atmosphere, the “wave” of horror movies is about to land in cinemas nationwide. Here are 4 horror movies that will make moviegoers “cold” after stepping out of the theater.
