Some of the best horror movies of 2016 are still to come. And as 2016 comes to a close, some of the best horror movies will arrive in 2017, including Rings and Saw: Legacy. Thus far, 2016 has provided high-quality horror movies like Hush, Creep, Don’t Breathe, Green Room, and many more. But there are few more gems yet to come.
Although exorcism movies have been done to death, this one looks pretty entertaining. Incarnate hits theaters on December 2, 2016.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of the most popular horror movies of all-time. Leatherface is to serve as a prequel about the deranged, chainsaw-wielding maniac. The release date of this movie is a bit of a mystery, however. In fact, every major movie site simply states 2016. None of the sequels, or reboots for that matter, have lived up to the original, but with originator Tobe Hooper behind the latest installment, it could end up being one of the best horror movies of 2016.
The Eyes of My Mother
Not since The Witch trailer has a movie looked so unsettling. The Witch lived up to the trailer, and if this movie does the same, then it could be another terrifying masterpiece. Variety reviewed what could be one of the best horror movies of 2016.
“Serial murder has rarely seemed a more melancholy calling than it does in ‘The Eyes of My Mother,’ a short, decidedly unsweet and wholly startling vision from freshman writer-director Nicolas Pesce. Meshing an especially bloody strain of slasher pic with the most whispery of high-art sensibilities, this tale of a young Portuguese-American woman drawn — by way of misused heritage and scarring personal tragedy — into severely psychotic behavior reps an exquisite waking nightmare, its meticulous monochrome imagery caressing the eye even as the filmmaker brandishes a scalpel before it.”
The Eyes of My Mother will be released on December 2, 2016.
Phantasm: Ravager is one of the most anticipated horror movies of 2016. It serves as a final installment in this horror franchise, and it features the original cast of A. Michael Baldwin, Reggie Bannister, Bill Thornbury, Kathy Lester, and Angus Scrimm.
Angus Scrimm, who played the Tall Man in the Phantasm movies, passed away on January 9, 2016, at the age of 89. But before the horror icon passed, he completed Phantasm: Ravager, cementing his legacy and leaving a gift behind for horror fans everywhere. Angus Scrimm is truly missed by horror audiences and will forever be considered a legend. Phantasm: Ravager arrives in select theaters and via Digital HD on October 7, 2016.
Horror movie fans have a lot to look forward to in 2017, including new additions to the Saw and Ring franchises. When The Ring first hit theaters in 2002, audiences were terrified by the creepy little girl and the innovative cinematography that the film presented. It is the first movie that was an American remake of a Japanese horror movie classic, Ringu. Though The Ring was widely praised by critics, The Ring 2 was widely panned. Audiences will be able to see if the third installment, Rings, can live up to the original on February 3, 2017.
In 2004, audiences were introduced to a new staple in horror, Jigsaw. Between the gore and the twist ending, audiences were left gasping from Saw. Then for years to follow, new Saw installments (seven total) were released around Halloween. And just when horror fans thought that Jigsaw was done, Saw: Legacy will be released on October 27, 2017.
