Every New Horror Movie In Theaters This Halloween

I Still See You (VOD)

Loosely based on the young adult novel Break My Heart 1,000 Times, I Still See You is set in a world where the ghosts of the departed (i.e. Remnants) are seen to repeat the same sequence of events from their lives repeatedly. Bella Thorne stars as Roni, a teenage girl who is seemingly stalked by the Remnant of a murderer, in defiance of all the rules people thought governed ghosts. Teaming with a classmate and a teacher, Roni struggles to prove that The Remnants are changing while fighting to save herself. Critics have not been kind to this adaptation, which earned only one positive review on Rotten Tomatoes, suggesting that teens might want to seek out the original book by Daniel Waters instead.

The Super (VOD)

Val Kilmer in The Super

The Super stars Patrick John Flueger as Phil Lodge, a former NYPD officer who becomes superintendent of a luxury apartment complex in Manhattan. When Lodge learns that the building has a history of mysterious disappearances, his suspicions fall upon the building's creepy maintenance man, Walter (Val Kilmer). Produced by Law and Order creator Dick Wolf with a script by Black Swan co-writer John J. McLaughlin, the reviews for The Super have been largely negative. However, many have praised Kilmer for his performance, saying that he is virtually unrecognizable in the role of Walter and offers a truly sinister presence.

Terrified (Shudder)

Terrified

Written and directed by Argentinian filmmaker Demián Rugna, Terrified surprised many by winning Best Picture at the Montevideo Fantástico Film Festival and in the Horror Features category at Austin Fantastic Fest. The story centers upon a doctor who researches the paranormal, her colleague and an ex-cop who travel to Buenos Aries to investigate a series of mysterious events. Butting heads with a commissioner who insists that nothing unusual is going on, the trio soon discovers an evil that could destroy human society as we know it. The film is currently available exclusively through the Shudder streaming service.

Malevolent (Netflix)

Malevolent follows sibling con-artists Jackson and Angela who pose as paranormal investigators; they trick the bereaved with Angela pretending to have visions of the departed as Jackson plays around with fake scientific equipment. The two bite off more than they can chew, however, when a new assignment in an old manor house inspires Angela to start having true visions of the young girls who died horrible deaths on the property and the evil responsible proves to be all too real. Distributed by Netflix in the US and UK, Malevolent has drawn a lot of attention for its stunning ending.
