HAPPY NEW FEAR

To celebrate the delicious onslaught of Horror coming our way in 2022, here are some of our favorite projects that we’re most excited to see.



SCREAM

Starting the year off with a swing and stab is the return of the ghastly Ghostface. This meta-slasher franchise finds a new start with a more diverse cast boasting Melissa Barrera (In the Heights), Jenna Ortega (Netflix’s upcoming Wednesday Addams series), and Mason Gooding (Love, Victor.)


Release Date: January 14, 2022


 

TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE

Fresh off of working on Don’t Breathe 2, filmmaker Fede Álvarez penned the latest Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Alvarez did wonders with his indirect Evil Dead reboot in 2013, so all eyes are on the Uruguayan filmmaker as he ventures into another revered film series. This Netflix release serves as a direct sequel to the 1974 original.


Release Date: February 18, 2022


 

NOPE

Keke Palmer (Scream TV series) is taking her outspoken love for Horror to the big screen for Jordan Peele’s first directorial effort in over three years. Nope is shrouded in secrecy, much like the production of Us (2019) before its own release.


Release Date: July 22, 2022


 

IN LIVING HORROR



Promising to be “drenched in lore and Black culture,” this new series from creator Britt Banks recently surpassed its crowdfunding goals. Filmmaker Matthew A. Cherry even shared their Seed&Spark campaign online, adding to the buzz around this project.


Release Date: Unknown


 

BITTER ROOT

Despite the name, Regina King’s comic book adaptation promises to be a sweet monster movie set in 1924 amid the Harlem Renaissance. King’s production is described as “Get Out meets Blade, the Vampire Hunter.”


Release Date: Unknown


 

SALEM’S LOT

Every nightmare that filmmaker James Wan touches turns into gold. Wan, best known for creating franchises like The Conjuring, Saw, Insidious, and last year’s Malignant, now has his sights set on a new Stephen King adaptation.


Release Date: Unknown


 

HELLRAISER

Audiences will be visited by an other-wordly evil later this year when the franchise is rebooted for Hulu. At the center of this film is actress Jamie Clayton (Sense8) stepping into the iconic role of Pinhead. Clayton’s casting was a frequent topic of conversation last year, as she is the one of the first Trans women to ever play such a prolific legacy role.


Release Date: Unknown
