More About New Movies

New Horror Movies
Ready for the next installment of scary thrillers? Find out which movies are coming soon to a theater near you. Here you can browse upcoming horror movies' summaries along with release dates and movie trailers. Read our members' thoughts about the movies or post your own comments. Feel free to browse all of our movies in the following ways: by latest movies, alphabetically, by popularity, by genre, upcoming horror movies and featured horror movies.

The upcoming horror films are destined to set a new precedent in the horror industry. They will prey upon your hidden fears, causing panic, disgust, dread and alarm, ultimately wreaking havoc on your nerves. What will the upcoming horror flicks attack next? Upcoming horror movies are likely to strike our terror of the unknown, our helplessness, our nightmares, our alienation, our revulsions, our fear of death and our loss of self. What will we do when watching the best upcoming horror movies? Our heart rate will increase, our muscles will tense, our breath will speed up and our adrenaline will undoubtedly kick in for a scary, good time.

Upcoming Horror Movie Subjects
Offering a wide variety of subjects, the upcoming horror movies fall into two basic categories: supernatural and non-supernatural. Supernatural movies often overlap the fantasy and science fiction genres and revolve around an evil force such as a werewolf, vampire, ghost, cannibal, haunted house, zombie or alien. Non-supernatural horror films may focus on the revolting and horrible acts of a serial killer, a disease/virus outbreak, have an apocalyptic theme or will be based on true events. According to H.P. Lovecraft, "the oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown." It's for this reason horror movies can be so unsettling yet at the same time so enjoyable to watch. We hope you are looking forward to the upcoming horror movies as much as we are.
