M3gan (January 6)
Another year, another killer doll. But this one is infused with the genius of James Wan. Will the film work itself out or is it a full diaper? We’ll find out soon enough.
Logline: A robotics engineer at a toy company builds a real-life doll that begins to take on a life of its own.
True Haunting (January 6)
We are not sure if this is just the working title of the film or the official one. But we know that stars the boys’ Erin Moriarty with Jamie Campbell Bower (Vecna in Strange things).
logline: The terrifying story of the first televised exorcism on NBC in 1971. The NBC news segment was a hit, the exorcism was not. Instead, it made things worse for the Becker family who lived there. Much worse.
Snowfall (January 17)
It is so Frozen (2010) meets Cabin Fever?
logline: This terrifying winter horror story will chill you to the bone. As medical student Eden joins her four friends in a remote cabin to celebrate the New Year, the party quickly turns serious when a brutal winter storm isolates the kids and knocks out the power. After making frozen cocktails with snow, Eden and her friends start acting strange. Convinced that the flakes have infected them with an evil virus, they struggle to stay awake to avoid freezing to death. Who will survive this icy ordeal?
Fear (January 20)
No, it’s not a remake of Mark Wahlberg thriller. Although that one comes in serial form. No, this is a horror movie based on a pandemic. Not much is known about it, so keep checking.
logline: A much needed getaway and a weekend of celebration turns into a nightmare due to the contagious threat from the air.
Knock at the Cabin (February 3)
We couldn’t go a year without a Shyamalan movie and this year we’re getting two. First up is this home invasion horror.
logline: While vacationing at a remote cabin, a girl and her parents are taken hostage by four armed strangers who ask the family to make an unthinkable choice to avoid the apocalypse. With limited access to the outside world, the family must decide what they believe before everything is lost.
Scream 6 (March 10)
It didn’t take long! Let’s hope the brevity of the production doesn’t carry over to the screen or we might be in for another one Halloween is over on our hands.
The Pope’s Exorcist (April 7)
Russell Crowe blew us away with his 2020 psychotic thriller Unhinged. We hope he can recapture lightning in a bottle with this supernatural offering from supreme lord director Julius Avery.
logline: Portrait of a real-life figure, Father Gabriele Amorth, a priest who acted as the Vatican’s chief exorcist and who performed over 100,000 exorcisms during his lifetime. (He died in 2016 at the age of 91.) Amorth wrote two memoirs—An Exorcist Tells His Story and An Exorcist: More Stories—and detailed his experiences battling Satan and the demons that had drawn people into their evil.
Evil Dead Rise (April 21)
The jury is still out on whether Ash will make a cameo. It would be nice, but I really didn’t need it in the remake (although that would have been nice too). No, this one has a whole new protagonist and we’re all waiting to see if they can handle the Deadites in the big city.
logline: A twisted tale of two estranged sisters whose reunion is interrupted by the appearance of flesh-possessing demons, thrusting them into a primal struggle for survival as they confront the most nightmarish version of family imaginable.
