BLOOD ON HER NAME (RELEASE DATE: FEBRUARY 28)

Blood On Her Name is the compelling and suspenseful story of a woman whose conscience weighs on her after trying to cover up an accidental death. If someone’s death was on your hands, would you try to cover it up or come clean? Find out what Leigh (Bethany Anne Lind, Doctor Sleep) does in the feature film debut of filmmaker Matthew Pope. This nerve-wracking nail-biter offers a unique story that’s dramatic and horrifying.

THE INVISIBLE MAN (RELEASE DATE: FEBRUARY 28)

The Universal classic gets an all-new look judging by the look we got (ahem) of The Invisible Man, written and directed by genre favorite Leigh Whannell. The new movie amps up the violence and is gunning for an “R” rating, which would definitely satisfy bloodthirsty horror fans! Take a look at the menacing new TV spot to see the Invisible Man deliver scares to the female lead, Elizabeth Moss, (The Handmaid’s Tale) that have her looking nuts!

THE VAST OF NIGHT (RELEASE DATE: MARCH 13)

This cool, highly anticipated film is a throwback to retro sci-fi flicks of the ‘50s. The story follows a switchboard operator and a radio DJ who discover a frequency that’s unknown. These two follow the sounds and embark on a frightening adventure that could change life as they know it. This film definitely has a vintage feel to it that is really fun. Compared to an episode of The Twilight Zone, this stylish movie is well-done and a must-see. It will be streaming on Amazon.

SPIRAL: FROM THE BOOK OF SAW (RELEASE DATE: MAY 15)

Chris Rock revives the Saw series with an all-new entry. The ninth Saw film gave us a trailer this week that had many fans excited, especially after seeing Samuel L. Jackson. Do we want to see Jackson play a game? Absolutely! There’s not a lot about the plot, which looks similar in tone to previous Saw films – detectives investigate murders that look like past Jigsaw killings (however, no Tobin Bell: is that good or bad?) Darren Lynn Bousman coming back on board to helm this film is definitely a good sign. How will this film fit into the Saw universe? See the first glimpse below.

RESIDENT EVIL SERIES COMES TO NETFLIX

Resident Evil isn’t going away anytime soon. In fact, fans of the series will be stoked to see the upcoming release of a video game as well as the upcoming Resident Evil 3 remake releasing in April. A new Netflix series slated for April 2021 release will focus on Albert Wesker’s daughters living in the year 2036, when zombies have taken over a much smaller planet.

NEW SILENT HILL AND FATAL FRAME FILMS DEVELOPING

The new Fatal Frame movie is based on the Japanese video game (called Project Zero in Japan). Like the game, the setting of the story will take place in Japan. The haunted house game will likely make a seamless, spooky translation from game to screen. We’re also getting a new Silent Hill film that will be more in the vein of the original 2008 film and less like the lackluster 2012 movie. These are two projects that horror fans will no doubt be psyched about, and we can’t wait to hear more.

THE NIGHT HOUSE

Sundance was abuzz this year with talk about The Night House, which is being called the scariest ghost story movie in years. Packed with jump scares audiences won’t see coming, this David Bruckner-directed project stars Rebecca Hall. Revi
