Upcoming Horror Movie Release Dates

The great thing about being a horror fan is that it’s always your season. Of course, Halloween time is the annual horror bonanza, but the release calendar is always packed with new additions, which means that whether you’re in the thick of summer blockbuster territory or the peak of awards season, there’s always a new horror movie release just around the corner. The only downside is that all that content can be hard to keep up with. That’s where we come in!

Below you’ll find a regularly updated horror release date calendar. We’ll update with all the major studio projects, sequels, remakes and buzzy festival hits as they’re announced, but trying to sort through every unreleased and upcoming indie horror movie is a bit of an unwieldy feat, so we’ll add those films when they land an official distributor and release date.

Get caught up on all the major new and upcoming horror movies for the next few years, and if you’re looking for more horror recommendations, take a look at some of our regularly updated guides and lists below.
