What Are the Best New Horror Movies?


Spring is approaching, but just because we're getting to the most life-giving season of the year isn't any reason to ignore horror. Sure, the Halloween season is the conventional time to watch horror, but if a movie like MIDSOMMAR taught us anything, it's that scares and daylight don't have to be mutually exclusive. (The movie also taught us not to traipse blindly off into strange communities deep in the woods, but we'll reflect upon that lesson another time.) Horror is now a year-round event, and we couldn't be more happy about that!

We're excited to see the sequel to one of the biggest horror hits of the last few years, and to experience the return of one of the greatest horror icons of the 1990s, in CANDYMAN. Those are just the beginning of the new horror films coming in 2020. Here are several great movies we’re looking forward to as 2020 rolls on.


New Horror Movies: Candyman

LITTLE WOODS filmmaker Nia DaCosta teamed with producer Jordan Peele (GET OUT, US) for this "spiritual sequel" to the 1992 horror classic. CANDYMAN returns to the neighborhood where the original film was set, but things have changed. The Cabrini-Green housing projects have been demolished and the surrounding neighborhood gentrified, but old hauntings can't simply be paved over. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II ("Watchmen" and AQUAMAN) stars, alongside Cassie Kramer, Teyonah Parris, and original iconic star Tony Todd. [June 12]

The last PURGE film, seen above, was a prequel origin story that explained how the violent Purge night — 12 hours in which absolutely all crime is legal — was first put into action. This fifth movie is being kept top secret so far, but we know it is a planned end to the series. "I think it's a great way to end it all. We want to end it all, I think, in this one, and I'm very excited," said THE PURGE creator James DeMonaco said in 2018. This entire series has been an amazing thrill ride, and we can't wait to see what they have in store for an ending. [July 10]
