Just three weeks remain here in 2022, and although the new horror releases are starting to slow down considerably, the good news is that the new horror content never actually stops.
This week, in fact, SIX brand new horror movies are being released!
Here’s all the new horror arriving December 13 – December 18, 2022.
He sighed director Luca Guadagnino and writer David Kajganich reteam for the new genre film starring Timothée Chalametwhich is an adaptation of Camille DeAngelis‘s novel.
Taylor Russell (Escape Rooms) stars alongside Chalamet.
The film is a “story of first love between Maren, a young woman learning how to survive on the margins of society, and Lee, an intense and disenfranchised drifter; a liberating road odyssey of two young people coming into their own, searching for identity and chasing beauty in a dangerous world that cannot abide who they are.”
Mark Rylance, André Holland, Jessica Harper, Michael Stuhlbarg, David Gordon-Green, Jake Horowitz, Francesca Scorsese and Chloe Sevigny also star.
Expect this tender yet macabre love story to devour your heart. From Meagan’s review for BD: “Bones and All makes for a sumptuous and sensual feast. There’s a matter-of-factness to the gore, and cannibalism will likely repel mainstream or unsuspecting audiences. But beneath the viscera and grue is a tender and affecting tale of first love and discovery.
“It’s as elegant as carnal and carnivorous, and it’ll take a bite out of your heart if you let it.”
Exorcism horror movie Prey for the Devil (formerly The Devil’s Light) also made its Digital debut yesterday, December 13, in the wake of the film’s theatrical release in October.
In Prey for the Devil, “In response to a global rise in demonic possessions, the Catholic Church reopens exorcism schools to train priests in the Rite of Exorcism. On this spiritual battlefield, an unlikely warrior rises: a young nun, Sister Ann (Jacqueline Byers).
“Sister Ann believes she is answering a calling to be the first female exorcist… but who, or what, called her? In response to a global rise in demonic possessions, Ann seeks out a place at an exorcism school reopened by the Catholic Church. Until now these schools have only trained priests in the Rite of Exorcism – but a professor (Colin Salmon) recognizes Sister Ann’s gifts and agrees to train her. Thrust onto the spiritual frontline with fellow student Father Dante (Christian Navarro), Sister Ann finds herself in a battle for the soul of a young girl, who Sister Ann believes is possessed by the same demon that tormented her own mother years ago. Determined to root out the evil, Ann soon realizes the Devil has her right where he wants her.”
Directed by The Last Exorcism‘s Daniel Stamm and written by Halloween H20: 20 Years Later‘s Robert Zappiathe film also features Virginia Madsenstar of the original Candyman, alongside Lisa Palfrey, Nicholas Ralphand Ben Cross.
