2023 has so far been a pretty wild ride in terms of horror movies. We have seen a creepy AI-driven android wreck mayhem in M3GAN; Winnie the Pooh and Piglet shedding more blood than a flourishing slaughterhouse in Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey and our old favorite knife-wielding manic, Ghost Face, hit the streets of New York in a very bloody (if not a wildly unbelievable) franchise installment in Scream VI.

With such a promising first half of the year, we cast our eyes to the not-so-distant future and take a look at what else 2023 has in store for us many fans of gore, ghouls, and unrelenting terror. Here are our most anticipated upcoming horror movies of the months to come.

Insidious: The Red Door

When a movie comes from the dark and sinister depths of the Conjuring universe, it’s invariably full of psychological scares and a foreboding atmosphere. As the trailer above shows, Insidious: The Red Door isn’t about to break tradition.

Insidious: The Red Door is to be a direct sequel to Insidious: Chapter 2, making it the fifth installment of the sub-franchise in both date-released and chronological order. The movie will once again follow the Lambert family as they once again become plagued by a curse. Sony’s official synopsis for Insidious: The Red Door reads:

In Insidious: The Red Door, the horror franchise’s original cast returns for the final chapter of the Lambert family’s terrifying saga. To put their demons to rest once and for all, Josh (Patrick Wilson) and a college-aged Dalton (Ty Simpkins) must go deeper into The Further than ever before, facing their family’s dark past and a host of new and more horrifying terrors that lurk behind the red door.

The Nun 2

With any real details surrounding the details of The Nun 2 being as rare as hen’s teeth, there’s very little beyond the realms of speculation that we can write about. We do, however, have some interesting facts about the upcoming movie from the Conjuring universe.

We know that the movie will take place in 1952 and four years later than the events of the first Nun movie. We also know that the title character, Valak, is back and leaving in her wake a trail of death and fear. As we all know, there’s only one person equipped to deal with such evil carnate, yes, Sister Irene will once again be the lead character as she battles her ungodly nemesis and the evil within.

The Conjuring universe never fails to deliver scares that actually hit home and we, for one, can not wait for the return of the Nun.

  1. The Nun 2 and The Exorcist : Believer are two horror movies that I’m looking forward to this year. I enjoyed the first Nun and even Warrior Nun which was a TV show. As for The Exorcist : Believer, I’m looking forward to something better than what they did in The Pope’s Exorcist.
