Whether or not we want to admit it, 2015 is nearly over. We’ve had some hits and misses this year when it comes to movies, It’s almost as if for every great film, such as Krampus, we get a pile of garbage as well. I mean, if we’re being honest, The Human Centipede III was not a great film..at all. [but I trust that you knew that already, right?] With 2016 starting on Friday, I figured now was the best time to go back to our roots, and discuss some of the horror movies that I’m most excited for in 2016. Because this list is strictly horror, it goes without saying that I’m excited for some of the superhero films coming too – such as Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse. As with many things I write, spoilers are always a given..even if there are not, it’s good to give a warning just in case.
Start the year off right on January 8th, 2016 with The Forest – a film that follows an American woman who wanders into Japan’s very own Suicide Forest in order to find her sister. What makes this creepier is knowing that Aokigahara, or The Suicide Forest is an actual place..which is where this movie takes is said to take place.
Even though I’m tired of possession movies, I’ve been interested in this movie since I saw the trailer. On February 26th, The Witch follows a family in 1630s New England, who gets torn apart by the forces of witchcraft, black magic and possession. It looks like it will have a real disturbing vibe.
Rob Zombie‘s 31:
I mean, come on. Don’t tell me that you didn’t expect to see this one on here..especially with how it got an NC-17 rating..twice. I’ve talked a ton about this movie, and the internet seems to love the idea of it, so I won’t say much – just imagine killer clowns chasing a group of people. I’m predicting Halloween as a release date for this one.
Also coming sooner than the others is The Boy. [coming January 22nd, 2016!] As someone who thinks dolls are creepy enough as is, The Boy follows an American nanny who shocked that her new English family’s boy is actually a life-sized doll. After violating a list of strict rules, disturbing events make her believe that the doll is alive.
Of course, these are just a few of the many movies that are coming out this upcoming year. With more coming every day, it’s a wonder if I’ll see all the ones I’m interested in. 2015 felt underwhelming since I didn’t see as many movies as I usually do, especially cause a lot went down this past year. Hopefully 2016 will change that. With many things to come in 2016, I wanted to end this by thanking each and every one of you readers who have stuck with me this whole ride: it’s been crazy, and [as much as I say it a lot] I’m thankful there’s people out there that share my thoughts on movies, or at the very least – are willing to talk with me about them!
