So, there are some horror movies coming out in 2022 that every horror movie fan should see. This is a list of six horror films that will be released this year that will make you drop your popcorn and jaw drop.

Scream (January 14)

The film, which features a new mystery killer dressed in a Ghostface mask, once again targets a group of teenagers. It is a direct sequel to 2011’s “Scream 2,” starring Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courteney Cox, as well as a slew of new faces such as Melissa Barrera, Mason Gooding, Jenna Ortega, and Jack Quaid. Nonetheless, it will be the first series not directed by Wes Craven, who died in 2015. The film is directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, and the screenplay is written by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick.

Fresh (January 20)


The film will have its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, according to director Mimi Cave. The horror of modern dating is seen through a young woman’s fierce struggle to survive her new boyfriend’s unusual appetites, despite the film’s limited thriller. Sebastian Stan, Daisy Edgar-Jones, Jonica T. Gibbs, Charlotte Le Bon, Dayo Okeniyi, Andrea Bang, and Brett Dier are among the cast members. Lauryn Kahn wrote it, and Adam McKay, Kevin J. Messick, and Maeve Cullinane published it.

Orphan: First Kill (Jan. 28)


Many people have been scared by the film, which tells the story of a 33-year-old killer disguised as a 9-year-old child. This year, it returns as a prequel to “Esther,” starring Isabelle Fuhrman as a woman who escapes a mental institution by impersonating the daughter of a missing wealthy family. Julia Stiles, Rossif Sutherland, and Hiro Kanagawa star in this film. Fans of the film who have seen it before are eagerly anticipating its release!

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Feb. 18)

Directed by David Blue Garcia and written by Chris Thomas Devlin, the film stars Mark Burnham, Moe Dunford, Olwen Fouéré, Alice Krige, and Jessica Allain. Melody (Sarah Yarkin), her sister Lila (Elise Fisher), and their friends Dante (Jacob Latimore) and Ruth (Nell Hudson) establish a new business in the remote town of Harlow, Texas, only to be haunted by unwanted visitors in the form of a Leatherface serial killer.

The Black Phone (24 Jun)

This is not Ethan Hawke’s debut film, but it is likely to be his most engaging. Jason Blum produced the horror film, which was directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister) (Insidious & The Purge). It’s about a serial murderer who kidnaps a youngster in a Colorado suburb. When he is taken by ‘The Grabber,’ he hears the voices of prior victims urging him to flee. The film is based on Joe Hill’s short storey of the same name. The film also stars Madeleine McGraw, Jeremy Davies, and James Ransone.

Salem’s Lot (September 9)


This classic work by famed author Stephen King was first made into a two-part TV miniseries in 1979. It was ultimately converted into a film this year, directed by Gary Dauberman and produced by James Wan. It depicts the storey of Ben Mears (Lewis Pullman), a writer who returns to his hometown and discovers a strange force capable of turning humans into vampires. Instead of fleeing, he establishes an alliance to battle the vampire onslaught and defend the city. Mackenzie Leigh, Bill Camp, Spencer Treat Clark, and Alfre Woodard feature in it.
