Top 6 Upcoming Horror Movies in 2018

Fall is upon us; it’s the perfect season to watch horror movies and I personally can’t wait to discover new ones.

As we draw closer to Halloween, studios are looking to celebrate with their own scary stories.

Below you will find a list of what I consider to be the 6 best upcoming horror movies in 2018.

Wait… isn’t the website called FunTopTen? Well yea, but there aren’t that many horror movies on the horizon so deal with it!

#6: Mandy

Release Date: September 14, 2018

I have a soft spot for Nicolas Cage movies. He’s one of the few actors willing to give weird scripts a go. Just watch The Wicker Man if you need a great example.

Italian-Canadian film director Panos Cosmatos is back 8 years after Beyond the Black Rainbow to deliver a new movie experience unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Mandy seems it might be one of Cage’s crowning achievements; a bloody movie where supernatural monsters and horror intertwine. There’s even a scene where Cage duels another man with a roaring chainsaw.

#5: The House with a Clock in its Walls

Release date: September 21, 2018

With his new movie, Eli Roth swaps the violence (Cabin Fever, Hostel) for a kid-friendly horror story. The action takes place in a old haunted house beating with a clock that could bring the end of times.

It’s rare to see actors like Jack Black and Cate Blanchett in such a production. Even though this won’t be the scariest horror movie of 2018, The House With a Clock in its Walls promises a unique script where magic and intrigue abound.

#4: Hell Fest

Release Date: September 28, 2018

The concept behind Gregory Plotkin’s Hell Fest is pretty cool: a masked serial killer turned an amusement park into his own twisted playground.

People think it’s all part of the show until it’s too late. Just don’t watch the trailer as it basically shows you the whole movie.

#3: Halloween

Release Date: October 19, 2018

After 40 years of frights, John Carpenter’s Halloween just won’t die. The longest-running horror movie series will be back this October for a whole new chapter.

In what will be a direct sequel to the 1978’s cult hit,  Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) reprises her role against the brutal serial killer. John Carpenter himself will oversee that the movie gets all the love it deserves, he also promised a brand new soundtrack to give us goosebumps.

Halloween will be a must-see despite the fact it might fall victim to Hollywood’s hunger for recycled content. I’m more than willing to give it a chance!

#2: Suspiria

Release Date: October 26, 2018

Yup, that’s one heck of a picture. We go from Jack Black auscultating a house a couple of positions back to a woman with a god damned glass shard in her face.

Suspiria is in fact a very old horror movie from legendary Italian film director Dario Argento. It first screened in 1977 to much controversy. At the time, seeing such violence was simply unheard of.

The 2018 version will use an ensemble cast including Jessica Harper, who was the lead character and has now been cast in a secondary role. Suspiria is considered by many critics as a cult classic and I can’t wait to see film director Luca Guadagnino adapted it for a modern audience.

#1: Overlord

Release Date: November 9, 2018

No, this ain’t Harvey Dent from Batman. He’s much more… dead.

Producer J. J. Abrams helms a new horror movie focused on World War II nazi experiments. Without a doubt inspired by Wolfenstein, Overlord puts into picture a group of American soldiers against genetically enchanced soldiers. I’m not expecting this movie to be a blockbuster, but it seems fun enough, something like Dead Snow (2009) would be right up my alley!
