Some of these movies don't just fall in the horror movies list because they are also part suspense, thriller, fantasy, and mystery genre (sometimes all combined into one). And if there are any other movies that we should watch, (that we may have missed), then please do leave us a comment below. Wouldn't want the list to be incomplete.

These movies will release in theaters near you. Now I really cannot comment on how these movies will be received by the audience; as in you. What I can say is that I hope the movies at least deliver what's expected from it. And if you are uncertain about some movies, read their reviews before heading towards the theater.
