All laughs and no scares will make Jack dull as hell, and Freddie, plainly annoying. Horror is probably one of the most diverse genres in films. Creepy-crawlies, blood-sucking beauties, world-under-water, there’s something for everyone here. It tells intimate, relate-able tales combined with our greatest fears. Tales that terrify and excite us, at the same time. No wonder horror has such a massive fan-following. This year has got some pretty interesting releases lined up. Here is a list of 10 films you should definitely watch, whether you are a bonafide horror geek or not.
With Schwarzenegger and Breslin, a good performance is guaranteed. A moving zombie-pocalypse (never thought you’d read that in the same sentence, eh?) that marks director Hobson’s debut.
A remake of the 1982 hit, the creature that haunts in this is sure to scare the Ghostbusters away.
Third installment in the Insidious franchise, a must-see for all the James Wan fans.
The last film told us how eerily dangerous innocence can be, children are not always the victims.
Not for the faint hearted. If you know anything about the Human Centipede series, you’d call Dr. Frankenstien a rookie.
Never thought Grandmum’s could be scary? Think again.
Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones
The highest grossing found-footage franchise is back with it’s jump-scares.
Previously titled The Ring 3D, the bizarre videotape returns to strike terror, inspired by the Japanese film Ringu.
A walk down memory lane for all horror fans. R.L. Stine’s highly anticipated adventure with his readers, both young and old.
Amityville: The Awakening
A young girl’s family is invaded by evil forces, turning the ones she loves against her.
Director Guillermo Del Torro returns with this dark period-drama. The most awaited release of the year, a romance gone terribly wrong.
These films are guaranteed to terrify you, make you emotional and scare you again!
