As the weather warms, and the ground thaws for some of you, new horror movies are blossoming. The year kicked off with a trickle of new horror in theaters, as if the movies were also waking up and shaking off the frost. Spring is packed with some of the most anticipated new horror movies of the year, and we can’t help but feel we are on the precipice of full speed ahead.

There are more than a couple of long-awaited titles on this list, from the David Dastmalchian ’70s set horror Late Night With The Devil to The Strangers: Chapter One. These next three months are set to be packed with a sort of salve to our anxious anticipations. And we can’t freakin’ wait.

Here’s a complete list of all the new horror movies releasing in Spring 2024.

  • Amelia's Children - March 1

    Written and directed by Gabriel Abrantes, Amelia's Children transports us to Portugal. When Edward’s search for his biological family leads him and his girlfriend Ryley to a magnificent villa high in the mountains of Northern Portugal, he is full of excitement at meeting his long-lost mother and twin brother.

    Finally, he will discover who he is and where he comes from. But nothing is as it seems, and Edward will soon learn that he is linked to them by a monstrous secret. Starring Brigette Lundy-Paine, Alba Baptista, and Carloto Cotta. Take a look at the Amelia's Children poster and trailer.

  • Imaginary - March 8

    A ferocious teddy bear and perhaps an army of evil imaginary friends? We're in. When Jessica moves back into her childhood home with her family, her youngest stepdaughter Alice develops an eerie attachment to a stuffed bear named Chauncey she finds in the basement.

    As Alice's games with Chauncey become increasingly sinister, and Jessica intervenes only to realize Chauncey is much more than the stuffed toy bear she believed him to be.

    Imaginary stars DeWanda Wise (who's also onboard as a producer), Tom Payne, Taegen Burns, Pyper Braun, Veronica Falcon, and Betty Buckley. Check out our interviews with the Imaginary cast and director Jeff Wadlow.

  • Dr. Jekyll - March 11

    Hammer horror returns with Eddie Izzard in the titular role of Dr. Jekyll in this "dark twisted fairytale" take on the Gothic horror classic. Here's the official synopis:

    An isolated mansion, a mysterious locked room, creepy corridors, a dusty cellar and a mad doctor… Hammer horror is back with a modern reimagining of the classic Robert Louis Stevenson's 1886 novella ‘The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde’.

    When ex-convict Rob takes the carer position to the infamous Nina Jekyll, little does he know he’s part of an evil master plan devised by her alter ego Rachel Hyde. But to what lengths will Rob go to satisfy his client’s weird wishes and his own ambitions for the daughter he has never even seen?

  • Late Night With The Devil - March 22

    Late Night with the Devil has been an incredibly popular film on the fest circuit. We’ve been tracking this one for a bit, in no small part because filmmakers Cameron and Colin Cairnes (100 Bloody Acres) claim to have gotten the idea to cast Dastmalchian after reading his love letter to late-night horror hosts in issue #11 of FANGORIA.

    The film finds 1970s talk show host Jack Delroy (David Dastmalchian) on his last legs, wrung out by personal tragedy and in need of a ratings win. His plan to feature as a guest a young girl who is allegedly possessed seems like a Halloween night layup… until the cameras roll and all hell literally breaks loose.

    Late Night With The Devil is in theaters March 22 and streaming on Shudder April 19. Watch the latest Late Night With The Devil trailer here.

  • Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire - March 22

    The Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire cast is, as you may have already heard, sprawling, and includes Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Paul Rudd, Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt, James Acaster, Emily Alyn Lind, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, Celeste O'Connor, Logan Kim, Annie Potts, and - last, but certainly not least - the great Carrie Coon.

    The film centers on the Spengler family as they return to where it all started – the iconic New York City firehouse – to team up with the original Ghostbusters, who’ve developed a top-secret research lab to take busting ghosts to the next level.

    But when the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes an evil force, Ghostbusters new and old must join forces to protect their home and save the world from a second Ice Age.

    Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire is in theaters March 22.

  • Immaculate - March 22

    Originally slated for an April release, Neon picked this one up and announced a theatrical release date of March 22. Produced by and starring Sydney Sweeney as Cecilia, a woman of devout faith. Cecilia is warmly welcomed to the picture-perfect Italian countryside, where she is offered a new role at an illustrious convent. But it becomes clear to Cecilia that her new home harbors dark and horrifying secrets.

    Watch the Immaculate trailer here and catch it in theaters March 22.

  • You'll Never Find Me - March 22

    Isolation horror sends a special sort of chill up our spines, and it sounds like You'll Never Find Me fits the bill. Here's the official synopsis: An isolated man living at the back of a desolate caravan park is visited by a desperate young woman seeking shelter from a violent storm.

    As the savage storm worsens, these solitary souls begin to feel threatened – but who should really be afraid?

    You can find You'll Never Find Me streaming on Shudder March 22.

  • Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire - March 29

    We're still debating exactly how to pronounce this one, but we are all in agreement Godzilla x Kong is going to rule. This is a sequel to 2021’s Godzilla vs. Kong, but this time the two iconic monsters are no longer at odds with one another. We love a good buddy movie! Here's more from the official synopsis:

    "Pitting the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence – and our own.

    The epic new film will delve further into the histories of these Titans, their origins, and the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever.”

  • The First Omen - April 5

    It's a spring of religious horror! When a young American woman is sent to Rome to begin a life of service to the church, she encounters a darkness that causes her to question her own faith and uncovers a terrifying conspiracy that hopes to bring about the birth of evil incarnate.

    Directed by Arkasha Stevenson, the current plot synopsis doesn't give much away, but if this is a prequel to The Omen and the story revolves around a young woman attempting to stop "the birth of evil incarnate," we can probably extrapolate out some assumptions about how The First Omen plays out.

  • Baghead — April 5

    Initially, we didn't have much information on the upcoming Baghead, aside from a cool trailer and a January 26 UK release date. We finally have domestic release info and a proper synopsis! Night Swim director Bryce McGuire is one of the writers on this one, which follows a young woman who inherits a run-down pub and discovers a dark secret within its basement. Check out the full synopsis below, and keep an eye out for our Baghead-inspired Cursed Currywurst recipe to pair with your viewing.

    Following the death of her estranged father (Peter Mullan), Iris (Freya Allan) learns she has inherited a run-down, centuries-old pub. She travels to Berlin to identify her father’s body and meet with The Solicitor (Ned Dennehy) to discuss the estate. When the deed is signed, becomes inextricably tied to an unspeakable entity that resides in the pub’s basement–Baghead–a shape-shifting creature that can transform into the dead.

    Two thousand in cash for two minutes with the creature is all it takes for desperate loved ones to ease their grief. Iris is tempted to exploit the creature’s powers and help desperate people for a price. But she soon discovers breaking the two-minute rule can have terrifying consequences.

    Baghead will be streaming on Shudder and AMC+ April 5.

  • Chucky Season 3 Part 2 - April 10

    Chucky himself took to Twitter to announce that Chucky will return to USA, SyFy and Peacock on April 10th. We don't know what's in store for the final four episodes of the third season, but we're excited to find out. And to be honest, we're a bit worried for Fango Fam Devon Sawa.

    Read more from Sawa and Chucky creator Don Mancini in FANGORIA #23.

  • Sting - April 12

    A spider movie with practical effects created by 5-time Academy Award Winner Wētā Workshop!? Our skin is crawling and we are screaming in a combo of terror and absolute delight. Here's a brief synopsis:

    “After raising an unnervingly talented spider in secret, 12-year-old Charlotte must face the facts about her pet—and fight for her family’s survival—when the once-charming creature rapidly transforms into a giant, flesh-eating monster.”

    If you're into spider horror, watch the Sting trailer and catch Sting in theaters April 12.

  • Abigail — April 19

    Radio Silence is giving us a child vampire ballerina? Say no more. Here's the official synopsis:

    After a group of would-be criminals kidnap the 12-year-old ballerina daughter of a powerful underworld figure, all they have to do to collect a $50 million ransom is watch the girl overnight. In an isolated mansion, the captors start to dwindle, one by one, and they discover, to their mounting horror, that they’re locked inside with no normal little girl. 

    Allegedly originally titled Dracula's Daughter, Abigail stars Scream queen Melissa Barrera, Kathryn Newton (Freaky, Lisa Frankenstein), Dan Stevens (The Guest, Legion), William Catlett (Black Lightning, True Story), Kevin Durand (Resident Evil: Retribution, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Angus Cloud (Euphoria, North Hollywood), with Alisha Weir (Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical, Darklands) starring as Abigail herself.

    Hell yeah, we can't wait! Abigail is in theaters April 19. Watch the Abigail trailer here and get a peek at some bloody first-look images.

  • Infested - April 26

    More movies that make our skin crawl! This French creepy-crawly flick focuses on an invasion of venomous spiders, forcing residents of a suburban building to find a way out. Trapped in a building? Bad. Trapped in a building with spiders? Quadruple bad. Watching from the comfort of our couch? Majorly fun.

    Infested is streaming on Shudder April 26.

  • Boy Kills World - April 26

    Sam Raimi and Roy Lee are on board as producers for this wild action-packed, blood-soaked fest. Bill Skarsgård is a bonafide action star in this  comic adaptation directed by Moritz Mohr.

    Skarsgård stars as "Boy" who vows revenge after his family is murdered by Hilda Van Der Koy (Janssen), the deranged matriarch of a corrupt post-apocalyptic dynasty that left the boy orphaned, deaf and voiceless. Driven by his inner voice, one which he co-opted from his favorite childhood video game, Boy trains with a mysterious shaman (Ruhian) to become an instrument of death and is set loose on the eve of the annual culling of dissidents. Bedlam ensues as Boy commits bloody martial arts mayhem, inciting a wrath of carnage and blood-letting. As he tries to get his bearings in this delirious realm, Boy soon falls in with a desperate resistance group, all the while bickering with the apparent ghost of his rebellious little sister.

    Starring Bill Skarsgård, Jessica Rothe, Michelle Dockery, Brett Gelman,
    Isaiah Mustafa, Yayan Ruhian, with Andrew Koji, Sharlto Copley and Famke Janssen, with the voice of "Boy" Narrated by H. Jon Benjamin. Check out our interview with BoyKills World director Moritz Mohr.

  • I Saw The TV Glow - May 3

    Since premiering at Sundance earlier this year, Jane Schoenbrun's I Saw The TV Glow has been racking up rave reviews. With a stacked cast including Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, The Voyeurs), Brigette Lundy-Paine (Atypical), Ian Foreman (Let The Right One In), Helena Howard (Madeline's Madeline), Danielle Deadwyler (Till) and Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst.

    The story follows teenager Owen, just trying to make it through life in the suburbs when his classmate introduces him to a mysterious late-night TV show — a vision of a supernatural world beneath their own. In the pale glow of the television, Owen’s view of reality begins to crack.

    Featuring original music composed by singer-songwriter Alex G (who also worked on World's Fair), indie rock artist Lindsey Jordan (Snail Mail), Yeule, Haley Dahl’s Sloppy Jane (featuring Phoebe Bridgers), King Woman and Caroline Polachek.

    I Saw The TV Glow is in theaters May 3.

  • Tarot - May 10

    Formerly titled Horrorscope, Tarot follows a group of friends who recklessly violate the sacred rule of Tarot readings – never use someone else’s deck. In the wake of broken rules, consequences follow, this time in the form of unleashing an unspeakable evil trapped within the cursed cards.

    One by one, they come face to face with fate and end up in a race against death to escape the future foretold in their readings. Starring Harriet Slater, Adain Bradley, Avantika, and Jacob Batalon

    Tarot will be in theaters May 10.

  • The Strangers: Chapter One - May 17

    Bryan Bertino’s home invasion classic is getting a new beginning with a trio of films from director Renny Harlin (Deep Blue Sea, Exorcist: The Beginning). Chapter 1. Madelaine Petsch (Riverdale) stars as a young woman on a road trip with her fiancé. But when they stop at a remote vacation rental in the woods, they become the prey of a vicious gang of masked strangers who attack without warning or reason and must use courage and cunning to survive one long, terrifying night.

    The Strangers: Chapter 1 is set to hit theaters on May 17.

  • Return To Silent Hill — TBD

    Update: IMDB previously had a release date of April 26, but that has since been replaced with a more general 2024 release.

    Pyramid Head will be making a long-awaited triumphant return very soon! Director Christopher Gans has also confirmed that the film will feature "a few nods to P.T.," referencing the ill-fated but utterly terrifying playable teaser for Hideo Kojima's scrapped Silent Hills.

    The film will follow James (Irvine), a man broken after being separated from his one true love (Jigsaw's Hannah Emily Anderson). When a mysterious letter calls him back to Silent Hill in search of her, he finds a once-recognizable town transformed by an unknown evil.

    As James descends deeper into the darkness, he encounters terrifying figures, both familiar and new, and begins to question his own sanity as he struggles to make sense of reality and hold on long enough to save his lost love.

    When will we finally be able to Return to Silent Hill? We aren't exactly sure, but keeping our fingers crossed for an early 2024 release.

  • Sleep - TBD

    We don't have an official release date for South Korean horror Sleep just yet, but Magnet Releasing officially has it listed on their Spring slate, so we know we won't have to wait much longer! Here's the official synopsis:

    Newlyweds Hyun-su (LEE Sun-kyun, Parasite) and Soo-jin’s (JUNG Yu-mi, Train To Busan) honeymoon phase is disrupted when seemingly out of nowhere, Hyun-su begins talking in his sleep. From then on, whenever he falls asleep, he seemingly transforms into someone else, with no recollection of what happened the night before. Despite sleep treatment, Hyun-su’s sleepwalking only intensifies, and Soo-Jin increasingly begins to feel that their young family may be in danger.

    You can read more about Jason Yu's Sleep in FANGORIA #23.

    We have lots to look forward to in the next three months! Check out our full list of All The New Horror Movies We Can't Wait To Watch In 2024, updated regularly.
