Upcoming Horror Movies 2024 (2024)

Night Swim - Jan 5

Upcoming Horror Movies 2024 (1)

The first major horror release of 2024 hails from Blumhouse. Our very own Scott Wampler sums it up rather nicely, "from the looks of things, this creepy aquatic tale may very well do for swimming pools what Steven Spielberg's Jaws once did for the ocean."

Based on the acclaimed 2014 short film by Rod Blackhurst and Bryce McGuire, the film stars Wyatt Russell (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) as Ray Waller, a former major league baseball player forced into early retirement by a degenerative illness, who moves into a new home with his concerned wife Eve (Oscarnominee Kerry Condon,The Banshees of Inisherin), teenage daughter Izzy (Amélie Hoeferle, The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes) and young son Elliot (Gavin Warren,Fear the Walking Dead).

Secretly hoping, against the odds, to return to pro ball, Ray persuades Eve that the new home’s shimmering backyard swimming pool will be fun for the kids and provide physical therapy for him. But a dark secret in the home’s past will unleash a malevolent force that will drag the family under, into the depths of inescapable terror.

You can now watch Night Swim at home, pair it with our pool water punch recipe.

  • Destroy All Neighbors — January 12

    Upcoming Horror Movies 2024 (2)

    William Brown (Jonah Ray Rodrigues), a neurotic, self-absorbed musician determined to finish his prog-rock magnum opus, faces a creative roadblock in the form of a noisy and grotesque neighbor named Vlad (Alex Winter). Finally working up the nerve to demand that Vlad keep it down, William inadvertently decapitates him.

    But, while attempting to cover up one murder, William’s accidental reign of terror causes victims to pile up and become undead corpses who torment and create more bloody detours on his road to prog-rock Valhalla.

    Destroy All Neighbors is a twisted splatter-comedy about a deranged journey of self-discovery full of goopy practical FX, a well-known ensemble cast, and LOTS of blood.

    Stream Destroy All Neighbors exclusively on Shudder January 12.

  • True Detective: Night Country — January 14

    Upcoming Horror Movies 2024 (3)

    Ok, this one isn't a movie, but it absolutely needs to be on your radar. There's a reason folks are already raving about the fourth season of True Detective and widely calling it the best season since the first. Issa López takes the helm as writer and director and steers us into the arctic for a horror story that masterfully fits into the world of True Detective, while also making it wholly her own.

    Jodie Foster and Kali Reis star as local law enforcement officials at odds with one another, and pretty much everything and everyone around them. With nods to snowy classics like The Thing, López crafts a mystery in the dark, and trust me when I say this season is an absolute feast for horror fans.

    True Detective: Night Country premieres on HBO Max and is also streaming on Max Sunday, January 14 at 9 p.m. ET and PT. Stay tuned for our cast interviews from the True Detective red carpet premiere.

Here's the official synopsis:

    “In the secluded ambiance of hotel rooms, Dario Argento crafted his greatest cinematic creations, seeking solace from the outside world to delve into his nightmares.

  • Late Night With The Devil - March 22

    Upcoming Horror Movies 2024 (11)

    Late Night with the Devil has been an incredibly popular film on the fest circuit.

    We’ve been tracking this one for a bit, in no small part because filmmakers Cameron and Colin Cairnes (100 Bloody Acres) claim to have gotten the idea to cast Dastmalchian after reading his love letter to late-night horror hosts in issue #11 of FANGORIA.

    The film finds 1970s talk show host Jack Delroy (David Dastmalchian) on his last legs, wrung out by personal tragedy and in need of a ratings win.

    His plan to feature as a guest a young girl who is allegedly possessed seems like a Halloween night layup… until the cameras roll and all hell literally breaks loose.

    Late Night With The Devil is in theaters March 22 and streaming on Shudder April 19.

    The film centers on the Spengler family as they return to where it all started – the iconic New York City firehouse – to team up with the original Ghostbusters, who’ve developed a top-secret research lab to take busting ghosts to the next level.

    But when the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes an evil force, Ghostbusters new and old must join forces to protect their home and save the world from a second Ice Age.

  • The First Omen - April 5

    Upcoming Horror Movies 2024 (16)

    When a young American woman is sent to Rome to begin a life of service to the church, she encounters a darkness that causes her to question her own faith and uncovers a terrifying conspiracy that hopes to bring about the birth of evil incarnate.

    Directed by Arkasha Stevenson, the current plot synopsis doesn't give much away, but if this is a prequel to The Omen and the story revolves around a young woman attempting to stop "the birth of evil incarnate," we can probably extrapolate out some assumptions about how The First Omen plays out.

    Check out our interview with the filmmakers to find out why The First Omen had to battle an NC-17 rating.

  • Baghead — April 5

    Upcoming Horror Movies 2024 (17)

Check out the full synopsis below, and keep an eye out for our Baghead-inspired Cursed Currywurst recipe to pair with your viewing.

She travels to Berlin to identify her father’s body and meet with The Solicitor (Ned Dennehy) to discuss the estate. When the deed is signed, becomes inextricably tied to an unspeakable entity that resides in the pub’s basem*nt–Baghead–a shape-shifting creature that can transform into the dead.

    Two thousand in cash for two minutes with the creature is all it takes for desperate loved ones to ease their grief. Iris is tempted to exploit the creature’s powers and help desperate people for a price. But she soon discovers breaking the two-minute rule can have terrifying consequences.

    Baghead will be streaming on Shudder and AMC+ April 5.

    The mystery plot is finally revealed, and we are getting a child vampire ballerina. Back in May, we shared a tad bit more info as to what the plot might be, "Plot details are being kept in the trunk of a car, but the project was at one point titledDracula’s Daughter. That project centered on a group of kidnappers who abduct a band of young people, one of whom ends up being the titular character. Woe then betides the kidnappers."

    Now we have the official synopsis:

In an isolated mansion, the captors start to dwindle, one by one, and they discover, to their mounting horror, that they’re locked inside with no normal little girl.
