Upcoming Scary Movies

Scary movies, it can either scare viewers or make viewers rethink the whole plot depending on the film.  Last year’s horror movies such as Halloween, Terrifier, and The Quiet Place were considerative good. Yet some movies like The Nun, Slenderman, and Winchester were 0% horror or the plot just didn’t make sense. However, now it is 2019 meaning that there will be many new scary movies.


First and foremost, one upcoming movie is The Curse of La Llorona. The movie is based on Latin American folklore “La Llorona” also known as the weeping lady. “La Llorona” is about a female spirit who lost her children causing her to take lost children making them her own while spreading misfortune to people nearby.  This movie is going to have a similar plot. According to the website IMDb,“ Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother suspected of child endangerment, a social worker and her own small kids are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm.” Meaning that the plot of this movie is going to be about a mother and her children encountering the mischievous female ghost who will cause chaos for them later in the movie. The release date is set for April 19th, 2019, which is coming up soon.


Secondly, another upcoming movie is Pet Semetary. The movie is going to be a remake of the original film Pet Semetary from 1989. Both films will be very similar as they are depicted from the horror novel Pet Semetary by author Stephen King. Dr. Louis Creed is a family man and a newly established doctor relocating his family to the small town of Ludlow, Maine. While moving there he discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods by the family’s home. Tragedy strikes after Dr. Louis Creed’s son is killed by a truck in the road one day so Louis decided to visit the sacred Indian burial ground once again. Learning more about the secrets of his new home, Louis meets his strange neighbor Jud. Jud informs of the story of a grieving father that once buried his son at the pet cemetery. Louis turned to Jud for aid which resulted in a series of chaotic events. Suspecting that this movie is going to have an alike plot but with a few changes like any other remake. The horror film is gradually releasing on April 5, 2019.


Third, the next upcoming movie is Child’s Play. Like Pet Sematary, the movie is going to be a remake of the original Child’s Play film from 1988. The Chucky people know and love is going to be an A.I toy instead of a real doll in the upcoming film. These new changes of Chucky make it seem like it’s not going to be as alike to the plot of the original film. The original Child’s Play film was the beginning of 7 whole films creating a storyline of the killer doll.  Does this mean if the remake is a success they’ll continue a whole new storyline of the new Chucky? Probably, but some people are against or happy about the new movie. Though people don’t need to worry since a Chucky Series is coming out to continue the original Chucky storyline, to those who are upset. The upcoming film is, fortunately, releasing on June 21, 2019.


Lastly, one of the many upcoming scary films is IT: Chapter Two. This movie is a continuation of the film IT from 2017, which was a remake of the original miniseries from 1990. The movie is based on horror novel IT written by Stephen King. There are two parts to the book, one where a group of kids called “The Losers Club” are children and one where they are grown-ups. In the first film, seven teenage outcasts decide to take matters into their own hands after the loss of many teenagers in their town of Derry, Maine. In the process, they discover that a demon in a disguise of a clown has been coming to their town since the start of it feeding off the children, then repeating every twenty-seven years. In part two, the story begins twenty-seven years after, everyone was living their life until they received a phone call that got the group back together to finally destroy the supernatural source. The original IT was about both parts while IT (2017) was about part 1 of the story. It makes sense to make a continuation for the second part of the story. The upcoming horror film is successfully releasing on September 6, 2019.


Will these upcoming movies succeed or flop? No one knows for sure whether or not they will, but if people want to watch a supernatural horror or traditional scary film, these upcoming movies are great recommendations to watch in theaters.
