I know it’s getting to be Halloween and all, but there are so many horror movie releases this month! 18 horror releases total, spread across theatrical releases and VOD and covering a wide range of subjects and subgenres.
Are you a sucker for horror movie legacies? Why not check out Cult of Chucky or Leatherface? Have you been waiting months for Happy Death Day? What about the latest Saw movie? They are all here, accompanied by my helpful commentary.
My personal picks for this month’s new releases are Happy Death Day, 78/52, and Tragedy Girls. What about you?
Fantastic Fest 2017 is here! Finally!a
Fantastic Fest is the largest film festival specializing in genre films, which basically means it focuses a lot more on sci-fi, horror, fantasy, action, and generally fun and weird movies. Fantastic Fest may not be a critical darling like Cannes, Venice, or Sundance, but it has a proven track record of showcasing crowd-pleasers and groundbreaking genre films. It usually picks up where TIFF leaves off, pushing the envelope even farther with non-horror movies like There Will Be Blood, Red, and John Wick.
These are the kinds of movies that really make you feel something, whether that’s a vicarious blood lust, a sense of wonder, squealing terror, or outright uncomfortable confusion. Fantastic Fest is always interesting and has something for every type of horror fan.
