Best horror movies of 2022

Scream 5

One of the first horror films to be released in 2022 is Scream. The fifth installment of the horror franchise takes place twenty-five years after the original, and finds a new Ghostface killer hunting down victims with ties to the OG.

A handful of members from the original cast are returning, such as Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette. But we’ll also meet several new Woodsboro residents, portrayed by Melissa Barrera, Mason Gooding, Dylan Minette, Jack Quaid, Jenna Ortega, and more.

Release date: January 14, 2022

Texas Chainsaw Massacre

The classic slasher series is back. But this time, it will stream exclusively on Netflix. As a direct sequel to the original 1974 movie, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, this story revolves around Leatherface and a new lot of victims who unknowingly disrupt his home. Cast members include Elsie Fisher, Sarah Yarkin, and Nell Hudson.

Release date: February 18, 2022

Fresh

Fed up with the state of dating apps, Noa (played by Normal People’s Daisy Edgar-Jones) finally has her meet-cute moment when charming Steve (played by Gossip Girl’s Sebastian Stan) strikes up a conversation with her in the grocery store. Noa gives Steve her number, goes on a date with him, and swiftly falls head over heels.

The two then set off on a romantic weekend gateway — but the rosy picture soon fades away when Noa discovers Steve’s warped appetite. “It’s about giving, giving yourself over to somebody, becoming one forever. That’s love,” Steve chillingly narrates over the trailer.

Release date: March 4, 2022

Umma

This supernatural thriller from director Iris Shim stars Killing Eve’s Sandra Oh and Atypical’s Fivel Stewart. The two actresses play mother and daughter, who lead a quiet life as beekeepers on a farm. But then Oh’s character, Amanda, receives her mother’s remains from South Korea and is told that “her anger will grow as long as she remains in the box.”

Amanda’s life is soon tormented by the spirit of her mother, as her daughter questions what other lies and secrets she’s withheld. “Don’t become your mother,” the trailer warns.

Umma is produced by Sam Raimi, the director of the first Spider-Man trilogy.

Release date: March 18, 2022

Morbius

Starring House of Gucci’s Jared Leto, this spine-chilling story from Marvel centers around biochemist Michael Morbius. Things go horribly wrong when he tries to cure himself of a rare blood disorder, but instead, accidentally turns himself into a living vampire. The official trailer description reads: “The line between hero and villain will be broken.”

Morbius was originally slated for a January 28 release, but Sony announced that it’d be pushed by three months, to April 1. No official reason was given, but it’s suspected that the delay is due to the latest COVID-19 surge.

Release date: April 1, 2022

You Won’t Be Alone

You Won’t Be Alone takes place in the 1800s in a rural village in Macedonia, a small country situated in the Balkan Peninsula of southeastern Europe. The film chronicles the unsettling series of events that take place after a young girl, Nevena, is kidnapped by a mythical, bloodthirsty figure named Old Maid Maria, also known as the Wolf-Eateress.

When Nevena is transformed into a shape-shifting witch by Old Maid Maria, she begins killing villagers and quickly learns that she has the power to take on the identity of her victims once they succumb to her horrific abilities.

Release date: April 1, 2022

Choose or Die

Can video games kill? Choose or Die, a horror film that’s set to stream exclusively on Netflix, tells the tale of Kayla, a young student who’s recently been fired and stumbles across an old video game from the 1980s — a seemingly nondescript finding, until she realizes that it comes with a $125,000 cash prize promised to the winner.

With the help of her friend Isaac, Kayla starts playing the “Choose Your Own Adventure”-esque game. But after a series of horrifying moments arise and reality starts to split apart, Kayla and Isaac discover that what they’re playing is no game at all.

Release date: April 15, 2022

Firestarter

Based on a 1980 Stephen King novel of the same name, Firestarter chronicles the story of 11-year-old Charlie (Ryan Kiera Armstrong), who possesses the power to start fires with her mind. Her parents Andy (Zac Efron) and Vicky (Sydney Lemmon) have taught her ways to restrain her abilities, but as she grows older, it becomes nearly too dominant to control — or keep hidden from suspicious government organizations.

Release date: May 13, 2022

The Black Phone

The Black Phone tells the tale of Finney, a 13-year-old boy who gets abducted by a vicious murderer known as the Grabber. He’s locked away in a soundproof basement, where no one can hear his cries for help.

But then, Finney starts receiving calls from a black phone on the wall. The voices belong to the killer’s previous victims, already dead, who desperately try to help Finney escape.

Release date: June 24, 2022

Hocus Pocus 2

OK so it’s not the most blood-curdling film on this list, but Hocus Pocus 2 is definitely one of the most anticipated. Twenty-nine years after the beloved original premiered, the Sanderson Sisters return to modern day Salem after three teens accidentally conjure them up, à la Max Dennison.

Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker have all reprised their roles for the sequel. Our new high schoolers are Lilia Buckingham, Belissa Escobedo, and Gossip Girl’s Whitney Peak.

Release date: September 30, 2022

Halloween Ends

Michael Myers and Laurie Strode square up for one final fight in the last chapter of this reboot trilogy. Following Halloween and Halloween Kills, it’s predicted that Halloween Ends will depict the end of Myers’ murderous reign. But given his suspected supernatural abilities — ahem, surviving multiple bullet and stab wounds — his death is obviously not guaranteed.

Jamie Lee Curtis, who’s depicted Laurie Strode in eight Halloween films, told The Illuminerdi that the ending will leave viewers “very angry” and “agitated.” We’ll just have to wait until October to find out what exactly that means.

Release date: October 14, 2022
