2022 horror movies are going to be epic – no, I am not saying this for the heck of it. This year has some really interesting shows scheduled and if everything goes according to plan, we’re going to get some movies that will definitely give you the creeps for months to come. Horror is a genre that is difficult to do well, so if you can hit that sweet spot, you’re going to be left with many emotions. Plus, with different social commentary angles being added to traditional horror, there’s much more to look out for than a woman in a white dress. Here are a few 2022 horror movies that we are really looking forward to!
Man, how are we still waiting for this 2022 horror movie to release? It’s been too long with us waiting for the movie to release and 2022 might just see it coming out. Starring Jared Leto as Morbius, the movie is about him trying to cure his sickness but turning into a vampire which is… horrifying. The trailer is something that gave me the creeps and I am sure everyone just desperately wants to watch this finally come out.
Jeepers Creepers: Reborn
The Creeper is back but is it reborn or just… back? That’s something we have to wait and watch in the upcoming trilogy. Yep, this is the first part of a trilogy that we’re going to get in the future and the teaser looks amazing. So, do we get to watch the creepy creeper here? Is it going to fly around with disgusting wings? Is the story going to continue through the three movies and is it going to be complete after the third? The original movie also had 3 total entries so we’ll just have to wait and see where this new one goes.
Orphan: First Kill
2009’s Orphan was absolutely horrifying. Never in a million years would I have been able to figure out the path that the movie eventually took. So, will the new movie deliver? Honestly, there wasn’t anything new to add to the previous movie so I am interested to learn what they are going to do with this new addition, especially because Julia Stiles and Rossif Sutherland are going to join the cast as the new and very unfortunate parents to Esther. The very talented Isabelle Fuhrman will be reprising her chilling role once again for the prequel.
Scream 5 coming to theatres in 2022 is the happiest thing that can happen to horror fans. Scream is everyone’s favourite series and although the later few were a bit questionable, one thing that the series never stopped being is entertaining. The series is self-aware, funny and very watchable in every sense of the term. Not to mention the fact that it gave us the iconic Ghostface – that’s a win in all of our books.
Release Date: 14 January 2022
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Fede Álvarez is a pretty solid director. I mean, 2013’s Evil Dead reboot still gives me the creeps and I have watched many a horrific scary movie after that. The director also has Don’t Breathe under his belt and we all know how that movie fared in the box office. This time around, he has written the screenplay and the newest film will be directed by David Blue Garcia. Leatherface is coming back, hopefully with tons of kills, thrills and chills!
Release Date: 18 February 2022
Starring Daniel Kaluuya and directed by Jordan Peele, this movie is shrouded in mystery. To be honest, Peele is one of my favourite horror directors and I cannot watch Get Out enough times. I find something new every time I watch the movie which says a lot about the director’s phenomenal storytelling capabilities. With the title like this, Nope movie has really created a space in my mind and I cannot help but go back and wonder what this could be about. July 2022 cannot arrive soon enough!
Release Date: 22 July 2022
You Won’t Be Alone
Featuring some very vague and cryptic imagery and a very creepy witch, the movie is surely going to give you the creeps. There’s something really scary about this movie that will give you goosebumps. If you’ve loved The Witch and Midsommar, then this is going to be right up your alley.
Release Date: 01 April 2022
The sci-fi film Moonlight, starring Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson and a host of other famous actors, is going to be nothing other than epic. The moon is going to crash into the Earth very soon and a bunch of scientists in space have a very close seat to the debacle. For sci-fi enthusiasts, this should be something to watch out for.
Release Date: 04 February 2022
Evil Dead Rise
Lee Cronin’s Evil Dead Rise comes with tons of expectations since the last time we watched some version of this movie we were extremely terrified thanks to the 2013 version. The new version should be something that keeps all of us scared shitless if everything goes well. As the premise goes, it’s going to be a battle between motherhood and demons with a hint of the Necronomicon.
Finnish body horror film Hatching is surely going to give everyone some uncomfortable things to watch… and think about. Tinja’s plight as a gymnast under her mother’s thumb or as an egg mom is painful to watch. But what happens after that egg hatches is… this 2022 horror movie is going to be an eerie watch.
