The character Maureen played by Stewart experiences bizarre events when her brother dies and starts sending her signs. The movie earned a four-minute standing ovation at its official premiere, and is a edge of the seat thriller. So this may be one to start the list and do watch out for some serious action.
· Annabelle 2- August 11, 2017
It's well known now that sentient dolls are always evil. Wouldn’t it be cool to have one of the little creature to chat to, but less cool when they pound on you and take your damn eyes off you with their fiendish doll claws. Annabelle 2 is the sequel of Annabelle, the spin-off of ‘The Conjuring’. Without a doubt, the damned doll will be up to more hellish tricks and spooky scenes in Annabelle 2.
· Alien Covenant- May 19, 2017
Directed by Ridley Scott and starring Michael Fassbender, it better not fool you with the thought that it’s a sequel to the mind-boggling Prometheus. Alien: Covenant is a new chapter in his groundbreaking Alien franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, searching for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy has discovered what they think is an uncharted living world, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they get to know about this threat beyond their imagination, they are attempting a harrowing escape. Watch the trailer here.
· IT- September 8, 2017
‘It’ is an upcoming supernatural horror film based on Stephen King's novel of the same name from 1986. The film is all about the story of seven children as they are terrorized by the scary being who quite literally exploits the fears and phobias of the victims while searching for its prey. The It TV Series was made around the 80’s but wasn’t very successful. The full cast for the film has been revealed and it is directed by Andrés Muschietti. It has always been tricky to take on a horror classic, but the new poster looks promising and Stephen King has already done wonders in his novel!
· Saw Legacy- October 27, 2017
Saw Legacy is the eighth installment of the Saw series, directed by Michael and Peter Spierig. This upcoming horror movie might be able to provide some closure to the loose ends of the Saw series, but that doesn't mean we will see the last of Billy and the Jigsaw killer. Sure, a few deaths within the series have hampered possible plotlines for certain characters, but there are many possibilities which would shape the story of this edge of the seat horror flick. After all, you never know where Jigsaw's barbaric legacy will take the audiences!
