If you’re a fan of horror, we’ve got some incredible news for you: 2019 is set to be a major year for the genre! While horror movies used to be relegated to automatic B-Movie status, those days are long gone and now more and more stars are turning to the genre – with terrifying consequences.
For now, buckle up and take a deep breath, you’re going to need it to get through these top new horror movies we’re (almost) too terrified to watch in 2019.
While the stranger-in-your-home isn’t exactly a new addition to the horror genre, The Intruder starring Michael Ealy and Meagan Good manages to bring something new to the table.
A pair of newlyweds purchase their dream home in the stunning Napa Valley, but what they don’t realise is that their new home holds plenty of dark secrets and the previous owner is about to make sure they know all about it. Starting off as a benevolent presence, the friendship with the previous owner – played by Dennis Quiad – soon takes a turn for the strange.
From Tate Taylor, the director of The Help and The Girl on the Train, comes a thriller which is sure to send a shiver up your spine. Octavia Spencer plays the absolutely terrifying ‘Ma’ who befriends a group of teens and ultimately agrees to allow them to party in her basement.
Of course, in the true horror fashion which may leave you running for the comforts of your favourite mobile casino Malaysia, that isn’t the end of this sordid tale and Ma has other plans for them – far more sinister plans.
The Dead Don’t Die
Calling all Jim Jarmusch fans…you’re in for a real treat! If the director alone isn’t enough to draw you to the cinema, perhaps the all-star cast will. Starring Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Chloe Sevigny, and Steve Buscemi amongst others, The Dead Don’t Die is set to be the most incredible comedy-horror zombie flick ever to see the light of day.
While we’ve certainly been inundated with zombie movies and TV series in the last few years, this is one not to be missed!
If the creature feature is your ultimate horror, then Crawl is right up your alley. Starring Kaya Scodelario and directed by Alexandre Aja of Piranha 3D fame, Crawl sees a family pitted against blood-thirsty alligators in a flooded house right smack-bang in the middle of a hurricane.
After the film debuted at CinemaCon earlier this year, attendees described Crawl as “bloody and chaotic” so be prepared for plenty of gut-wrenching moments.
If you’re anything like me, you’re only just recovering from watching Hereditary, but director Ari Aster isn’t done with us just yet. Described as a ‘Scandinavian folk horror’, Midsommar sees a young couple attending a mysterious nine-day festival in Sweden which only takes place every 90 years.
We don’t want to give too much away, but let’s just say that nothing is as it seems. Prepare to be jilted all over again.
