List by john Last updated June 16, 2017

Every year there is an array of horror movies launched around the world and 2017 is no exception. As a horror fan myself I am always out looking for new releases in the genre, some turning out to be great watches and other not so much. So far this list is looking really good as there has already been loads of great releases probably already surpassing the number of great films from 2016 which was also a pretty good year.

Upcoming horror movies to watch out for:

A Cure for Wellness (2016)

Drama Horror Mystery
There is a Cure
Watch trailer
Vote count 423 Vote avg 57 Release date 2016-12-10
Amazon US Get

Certainly worthy of being on this list and perhaps, the best so far. A Cure for Wellness is a mix of bizarre sci-fi mixed with horror mystery elements. Highly recommended and easily one of director Gore Verbinskis' best works yet.


Life (2017)

Thriller Science Fiction
Be careful what you search for

Amazon US Get

Space movies tend either be really good or really tacky because its critical how the budget is spent on making the sets look believable. Life does a great job of this and Calvin is genuinely frightening despite the story being somewhat predicable.


Split (2016)

Drama Horror Thriller
Kevin has 23 distinct personalities. The 24th is about to be unleashed.
Watch trailer
Vote count 3,361 Vote avg 69 Release date 2016-11-15
Amazon US Get

James Mcavoy hits the nail on the head in the future horror classic split. Basically 3 girls are kidnapped and locked in a basement be a man who has 23 personalities. Very strange but good horror movie.


Get Out (2017)

Just because your invited, doesn't mean you're welcome.
Watch trailer
Vote count 1,888 Vote avg 71 Release date 2017-02-24

Get Out is also going to be a future classic because one knows there is a plot twist coming but is still surprised by what actually happens. A fun and original horror film which is somewhat of a rarity these days.


The Mummy (2017)

Action Adventure Fantasy
Welcome To A New World of Gods And Monsters

An obvious choice for this list and a fully deserved one. What should you expect from this movie? It's essentially a continuation 10 years after Prometheus with a lot more gore and action, one of the best horror movies this year.
