Before I Wake

The Disappointments Room

The Disappointments Room

  • Starring: Kate Beckinsale and Lucas Till
  • The scoop: Dana (Beckinsale) and her family movie to the country for a new start, only to find that their dream home is super, super haunted. Hopefully The Disappointments Room will add something new to the haunted old house genre; if not, it still looks full of fun jump scares.

Blair Witch

Friend Request

Friend Request

Under the Shadow

Under the Shadow

  • Starring: Narges Rashidi and Avin Manshadi
  • The scoop: Set in post-revolution Iran in the ’80s, Under the Shadow features a mother fighting unspeakable (and frankly, indescribable) evil in her home. The horror movie showed at the Sundance Film Festival, and it was easily the scariest film there.

 The Eyes of My Mother

The Eyes of My Mother

  • Starring: Kika Magalhaes

Rings

  • Starring: Aimee Teegarden and Vincent D’Onofrio
  • The scoop: The curse returns! The jury is out on whether this sequel, starring another collection of people who end up on Samara’s bad side, is any good, but I will admit that the trailer is pretty haunting. Rings at least has to be good for some jump scares.

Shut In

Shut In

  • Starring: Naomi Watts and Jacob Tremblay
  • The scoop: Never forget that Oscar nominee Watts is a legit scream queen. The original star of The Ring is costarring with pint-size powerhouse Tremblay for Shut In, a psychological thriller about a woman and her son.
