Oh boy, another scary movie to add to our already overflowing collection.

Renfield (April 14, 2023)

The comedic horror is another adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, starring Nicolas Cage and Nicholas Hoult. The film tells the story of the famous vampire and his assistant Renfield. Because of the constant humiliations he suffers from Dracula, the assistant decides to eventually rebel against his master. There are no details about the film, but it is expected to be a fun and bloody vampire comedy horror in the spirit of Dark Shadows and What We Do in the Shadows. The film's producer, Robert Kirkman, said it turned out to be hilarious and extremely violent. We're really looking forward to it!

Scream VI (March 10, 2023)

The fifth Scream film, starring Melissa Barrera and Wednesday star Jenna Ortega together with everyone's favorites Neve Campbell and Courtney Cox, was as nostalgic as possible, it was dedicated to fans of non-trivial, psychological horrors like Babadook and It (2014) The next installment in the series of slasher horrors, Scream VI, should be no less interesting and unpredictable.

According to Melissa Barrera, the film is about a hundred times more brutal than the previous ones. For the first time, Scream takes place not in tiny Woodsboro, the murder capital of the United States, but in New York City. The teaser showed us that a masked maniac stalks the main characters during rush hour in a subway car, which means that we are in for something really bloody and creepy. Alas, Scream VI will not feature Neve Campbell for the first time in the franchise's history, but courageous journalist Gale Weathers (Courtney Cox) will definitely return.

Unwelcome (January 27, 2023)

One of the most unusual horror movies of the coming year is Unwelcome, which tells the story of a young family who moves out of town and decides to live in a cozy little house in rural Ireland. However, things are not as simple as they seem with this charming little place. The neighbors warn the couple that before they go to bed, the new tenants must be sure to leave treats on the porch for mythical creatures in red hoods that resemble garden gnomes. If they forget to do this, something terrible will happen.

Evil Dead Rise (April 21, 2023)

The final part of one of the most famous horror franchises.

We love it for the ironic take on mysticism, mockery of common horror movie clichés (don't touch anything and never go down the basement) and endless bloody carnival. The plot of Lee Cronin's fifth film is not much different from the previous installments. Beth comes to visit her sister Ellie, who lives in Los Angeles and is raising three children alone. One day the girls discover a strange book among a pile of old things lying in the basement, the Necronomicon. So they accidentally summon vicious demonic power. It is up to the girls to fight back against the ancient evil and save the city by all means.

The Boogeyman (2023)

The long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King's story is more of a psychological horror about the loss experience, in which PTSD takes the mystical form of a horrible monster stalking a teenage girl and her younger brother whose mother has died. The children try to convince their father that a terrible creature is hunting them, but the man, who struggles with the loss of his wife, pays no attention to stories about the evil monster lurking in the house. But what can he do if it becomes too late?

The Last Voyage of Demeter (August 11, 2023)

A rather interesting interpretation of Stoker's Dracula — the action of the horror film takes place on the ship Demeter, on which the vampire sails in his coffin to London. During the voyage, the Count attacks the crew members whose blood he feeds on. The new film by André Øvredal, who directed Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and Trollhunter, promises to be truly claustrophobic and dark. Sailors trapped on a ship with a bloodthirsty monster with no chance of escape — what could be scarier?

The Exorcist (October 13, 2023)

Back in 2021, it was announced that Universal Pictures would relaunch one of the scariest horror franchises in movie history, The Exorcist, as they bought the rights to it for $400 million.

A total of three films are to be released. Representatives of the company assure us that it is not a remake, but a continuation of the horror about devil possession. The trilogy is directed by David Gordon Green, who relaunched the cult slasher series Halloween. Plot details have not yet been revealed, but it is likely that the picture will tell the story about the child who was possessed by an ancient demon. Don’t forget that the last successful and very scary installment in the franchise was the series called The Exorcist, which was released in 2016.
