Barbarian is an American horror film about a woman who discovers the home she rented is double booked. The movie is directed by Zach Cregger and starring Georgina Campbell and Bill Skarsgård, so expect many jumpscares from this one. The film has been positively reviewed and out for a couple of weeks.

Goodnight Mommy, coming on Amazon Prime, is a remake of a 2014 Austrian psychological horror film directed by Veronica Franz and Severin Fiala.

After a mother of twins returns to their country home bandaged from plastic surgery, the twins start to suspect that she could be an impostor. This time, Goodnight Mommy will be directed by Matt Sobel and star Naomi Watts, and twins Cameron and Nicholas Crovetti.

The remake has been slightly criticized of being inferior to the original, but you can be the judge of which is the spookiest of the two.

Hocus Pocus 2 – September 30

Hocus Pocus is one of the most famous Halloween movies. One of the campiest films with a catchy soundtrack, including “I Put a Spell on You,” and a hundred play revivals will get a sequel on Disney+.

Three young women accidentally bring back the evil Sanderson Sisters to modern-day Salem and they must figure out how to stop them from wreaking havoc on the youth once more.

The Munsters – September 27

The Munsters is Rob Zombie’s passion project revival of the 1960’s show with the same name.

While the trailer has been criticized due to its apparently lacklustre art direction, there are still many expectant fans waiting to be surprised by this quirky suburban family of friendly monsters.

This one’s more of a comedy film with horror elements and will tell the story of how Herman and Lily Munster met back in Transylvania.

Deadstream – October 6

Deadstream is a found footage horror film set in the present day, where a decadent YouTuber looking for clout tries to get his followers back by live-streaming one lonely night in a haunted house. Sounds like something you’ve seen before in real life, doesn’t it?

Turns out that by doing so, he angers a vengeful spirit and his live stream now becomes a fight for his life. Sounds quirky enough to veer into the terrifying territory.

Not all of them are horror movies, but they will set the mood for the coming spooky season.
