We’ve got some films for you to look forward to in 2020. Once again, we’re faced with an onslaught of remakes and sequels, but you know what? There are some really interesting films that are coming out, and we’re here to slap you some horror wisdom!
For Horror movies, it can be a tricky thing to forecast what upcoming movies are going to be good. For a bit of amusement listen to our podcast and you’ll find out how we can get lured into a good trailer only to be saddled with a meh movie. The Curse of La Llorona, anyone? I think part of this is that movies with trailers right now are early offerings, which means dumping grounds for studios… or they are big studio efforts, which isn’t always a great thing.
Often times, the festival darling movies that we end up loving were films that we had no clue were coming (Extra Ordinary, One Cut of the Dead, and Finale.) and it required us to go to the film festivals to see them. Here’s a clue… GO TO FILM FESTIVALS! You get to binge watch thoroughly vetted horror movies, filled with audiences who are horror connoisseurs. Guaranteed you will see some good movies if you go to a horror film festival near you!
Here is a roster of known horror movies coming up this year. This is by no means an exclusive list, but there’s a little for everybody here. Big franchises, little indie flicks, some horror comedy, and some art house fare. See anything you like? Might we also recommend two movies we loved from the Festival Circuit that are coming out this year: The Lodge, Come to Daddy, and Extra Ordinary... you’ve heard us talk a lot about them, and now they will get theatrical releases.
