First of all, have you watched the trailer? If you haven’t, we’d like to warn you how squeamish and nauseating you’ll feel after seeing some lady’s throat being poked with a key-like finger. This fourth installment in the Insidious

#3 The Strangers: Prey At Night
If you remember watching The Strangers
back in 2008 starring Liv Tyler and Gemma Ward, well, this is the sequel 10 years in the making. You can expect the return of three masked psychopaths (seriously the mask itself is already sending chills down our spine) where they terrorise a family who were on a road trip. Poor guys. At least it’ll be a memorable vacation, right?

#4 A Quiet Place
Usually horror movies would be filled with piercing screams of its victims or from terrorising ghosts/demons creeping up when you least expected it. Well this movie has an interesting plot twist; in order to survive you’d have to be as quiet as a mouse (or ever quieter than a mouse!) because apparently this weird demon is attracted to sounds.

#5 Slender Man
Arguably the most popular mythical ‘ghost’ on the internet, the Slender Man finally gets its own long-awaited movie. The fable Internet being is said to have a faceless, long, slender figure, with unnatural long arms that’s responsible for the haunting and disappearance of countless of children and teenagers. The trailer is kind of meh
, so let’s hope the movie lives up to the hype.

#6 Truth Or Dare
This movie is brought to you by the same people who produced Happy Death Day
and Get Out,
so you can expect some similar elements and feel to it. 'Truth or Dare' centers around the popular pop culture game but be warned, it might be a little more extreme than it normally is. If anyone fails to carry out the dares or tell the ultimate truth, that person will die.
Tyler Posey, Lucy Hale, Landon Liboiron

Now here’s another masterpiece by James Wan that’ll give you nightmares for WEEKS. The Nun
is a spin-off based on a character that appeared in the Conjuring 2.
A priest and a nun join forces to investigate the mysterious death of another nun who committed suicide. Well to be honest, it doesn’t take a lot to convince us to watch this movie, just take one look at the nun you’d probably be scarred for life.
