Best Scary Movies To Look Forward To This Season
Fall is upon us which means the release of spooky films to celebrate the eerie season and usher in Halloween (in more ways than one)! At Bow Tie Cinemas we have an excellent line-up of horror movies coming in the weeks ahead. For the lovers of chilling experiences and the edge-of-the-seat frights, here is a list of horror movies you won't want to miss.
Slender Man (August 10)
What started off as an entry into a Photoshop contest turned into a massive phenomenon called “Slender Man.” One creepy photo was enough to create the entire story that got more bizarre and scary as new details emerged. The story is based around a tall haunting figure without a face and with exceptionally long arms that resides in a wooded area. Joey King, whom we know from The Conjuring, and Javier Botet, who played Hobo in It, will make sure that you walk out of the theatre deeply disturbed and genuinely scared. This gem of the genre opens soon, and you can already buy movie tickets online.
The Little Stranger (August 31)
Set in the summer of 1948, The Little Stranger tells a story of a young doctor who finds out the strange and disturbing family history he shares with the Ayres family. After he was called to Hundreds Hall to treat a patient, he finds himself in a mystifying and spooky place where ominous things occur regularly. Written by Lucinda Coxon (The Danish Girl) and starring Domhnall Gleeson (Ex Machina) and Ruth Wilson (The Affair), this movie promises to leave you questioning what is real and what's an illusion.
The Nun (September 7)
Whenever you have a mix of clergy and evil supernatural forces, you can expect to spend the majority of the movie on the edge of your seat. A novitiate and a priest with a haunting past are sent to Romania by the Vatican to investigate the mysterious death of a young nun. As the details emerge, it becomes clear that the forces involved are malevolent and powerful. This movie comes from the creators of The Conjuring, Annabelle, and Saw. Starring Taissa Farmiga, an actress that played the lead in Anna, and Bonnie Aarons as the demonic nun, the movie is filled with excellent suspense and great visuals that will haunt you for weeks.
The House with a Clock in Its Walls (September 21)
Eli Roth, the creator of Cabin Fever and Hostel, returns to the genre with an adaptation of a 1973 novel, The House with a Clock in Its Walls. This is a gothic fantasy/mystery about an orphan boy joined by a powerful witch and his uncle as he looks for a book with magical powers. Expect to discover a secret world in a movie that is suitable for kids and features a cast including Jack Black, Cate Blanchet, and Lorenza Izzo.
Halloween (October 19)
You cannot have a scary movie list without including the Halloween series. Luckily, this list includes the 11th installment of the cult classic featuring Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her iconic role as Laurie Strode. Laurie is determined to confront the masked figure who nearly killed her 40 years earlier. Directed by David Gordon Green, the movie also stars Nick Castle as Michael Myers and Judy Greer as Karen Strode.
