Horror Movie Releases in 2024

1. Night Swim (released January 5th, 2024)

Horror maestros James Wan and Blumhouse pair up again for this creepy story of a haunted suburban swimming pool. Fans of the Insidious franchise will relish the jump scare potential in this contemporary chiller starring Wyatt Russell and the Oscar-nominated star of Banshees of Inisherin, Kerry Condon.

2. A Quiet Place: Day One (released June 28th, 2024)

Silence is golden in the A Quiet Place franchise. John Krasinski's chilling horror blockbusters explore a world that's beset by sound-sensitive monsters, which were established as alien invaders in the second movie, released in 2021. Now, we go back to where it all began with Pig director Michael Sarnoski directing an all-star cast led by Lupita Nyong'o. Krasinski takes a story credit and Djimon Hounsou returns from the second film.

3. Untitled Alien movie (released August 16th, 2024)

The Alien franchise continues to exert a powerful influence over modern horror cinema. In the wake of Ridley Scott's Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, both of which acted as prequels to Scott's 1979 masterpiece, we now return to the world of the xenomorphs. The team behind the suspenseful Don't Breathe movies, comprising director Fede Álvarez and scriptwriter Rodo Sayagues, is now at the helm.

4. Beetlejuice 2 (released September 6th, 2024)

Tim Burton put himself on the map with the delightfully manic and morbid comedy-horror Beetlejuice. Released in 1988, it unleashed 'the ghost with the most': Michael Keaton's titular bioexorcist who helps newly undeads Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis scare a family of yuppies out of their former abode. Keaton shot to fame off the back of his hilarious central performance and he now returns to the role.


5. Smile 2 (released October 18th, 2024)

Released in 2022, horror-chiller Smile proved to be a surprise sleeper hit. Written and directed by Parker Finn, it wove the tale of a hideous curse that manifests in the form of a demonic rictus grin. It was a simple yet bonechilling idea that worked like a charm at the box office. Finn is expected to return and helm the sequel, which will hopefully prove to be even more petrifying than the original.


6. Untitled Jordan Peele movie (released December 27th, 2024)

Writer-director Jordan Peele has established himself as a contemporary horror auteur with the trifecta of Get Out (a historic Oscar winner for Best Original Screenplay), Us and Nope. Peele's movies adeptly balance trenchant social insight and ghoulishly macabre set-pieces, satisfying both the intellect and the gut in equal measure. Peele is set to return in 2024 with his new mystery project – we wonder what it could be?
