If possessed dolls, sequels of sequels, and jump scares don’t satisfy your need to be terrified, look no further. Some of the most anticipated horror movies of all time are coming out in 2017.

First among these is It Comes at Night. Directed by Trey Edward Shults, the movie promises to be a masterpiece. Shults studied under acclaimed filmmaker Terrence Malick and possesses the veteran director’s ability to pack meaning and emotion into films.

It Comes at Night

The trailer shows a situation, not unlike Cloverfield 10 Lane. People are thrust together in one man’s house as an unknown danger lurks outside. A crimson red door, gas masks, and a Hieronymous Bosch painting set a chilling scene.

It should be noted that It Comes at Night comes from the same studio that made The Witch in 2016. The utterly original movie that takes place in colonial America put the studio on the map.

It Comes at Night will be released on June 9. Here’s the film’s first trailer, which hints at the epic ride we’re all in for.

If you don’t want to wait until June to scare yourself, Alien: Covenant is set to debut on May 19. Ridley Scott has returned as director, and critics are hopeful it will return the horror franchise to its roots as a high-tension, white-knuckled affair.

Trailers hint that Scott is back on target after disappointing audiences with Prometheus, the cumbersome prequel to the Alien movies. Here’s our favorite trailer, featuring Katherine Waterston looking a lot like Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley.

On  September 8, we’ll finally get to see Stephen King’s sprawling masterpiece It get proper treatment. The book was made into a TV movie that wisely cast Tim Curry as a terrifying Pennywise the clown, but failed to impress with its visual effects.

The teaser trailer for It gives us a reason to hope for a truly great movie. Derry, Maine in the ’50s is the familiar backdrop to King’s story, and like another King adaptation, Stand by Me, the chemistry among the mostly child cast promises to make this movie unforgettable.

The movie’s full name is It:Part 1 – The Losers’ Club, and as the name suggests, it is the first installment of two. Andre Muschietti, who made the surprise 2013 hit Mama, directed the film. Bill Skarsgård plays Pennywise and Finn Wolfhard from Stranger Things will play Richie “Trashmouth” Tozier.

The remake of Dario Argento’s 1977 classic horror film finished shooting at the end of March, but does not have a specific release date. The star-studded cast features Dakota Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, Tilda Swinton, and Mia Goth.

The movie starts when Susie Bannon (played by Johnson) arrives at a dance academy in Berlin. Just when she’s pulling up to her new home, another dancer (Moretz) goes missing.

The original was surreal, gory, and action-packed and featured music by the Italian progressive rock band Goblin (they sound exactly how you would picture it). There is still no trailer for the new Suspiria, but we’re eagerly awaiting one.
