Top 10 Upcoming Horror Movies 2017–2018
Top 10 Upcoming Horror Movies 2017 – 2018.
2017 had already been a great year for horror films before the month began, but Stephen King’s IT has upped the ante both critically and at the box-office. The film’s a fantastic opener for the fall season’s remaining horror titles, and while the odds are slim that any of them will match its blockbuster haul we’re hoping that more than a few of them can equal its scares, thrills, and chills.
The next few months see a wide variety of horrors heading our way from slashers to creature features, from sequels to remakes, and from the hotly anticipated to the one directed by a convicted pedophile. Some are hitting theaters while others are premiering on VOD, and all are coming our way from September through November.
Keep reading for a look at the remaining horror movies of fall 2017.
