While new horror movies come and go with the seasons, the global delay in filming due to the ongoing pandemic put a roadblock in last year’s installments, making 2021 the year for jam-packed entertainment. So, with the cinemas starting to reopen and lockdown restrictions easing up, be sure to get in line to see the following three films in the coming months.
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (June 4)
The latest installment to The Conjuring Universe is making its debut today and depending on where you live, you may even be able to catch it on the big screen! While it may seem like Ed and Lorraine Warren have seen it all in terms of supernatural phenomena, this cinematic addition involves the fight of a lifetime involving a murder suspect who is claiming demonic possession as his official defense. While The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is the third for the Warrens, it marks the eighth feature film for the interconnected universe, which includes masterpieces such as Annabelle, The Curse of La Llorona, and The Nun.
The Forever Purge (July 2)
Maybe horror fans will feel a little different about the gruesome night of mayhem after living through pandemic lockdown restrictions or perhaps they will welcome the chaos? Needless to say, the murder and violence have extended past four feature films and we’re excited to say that a fifth addition is on the way. The Forever Purge is set to premiere this coming July long weekend and while little is known about its riveting plot, we do know that it will be the final installment of the series: “May God be with you all.”
Candyman (August 27)
After almost 30 years, this supernatural slasher has finally gotten a revamp, and while the original was full of blood and gore, we couldn’t be more excited for a fresh twist on this horror classic. Since his murderous soul wielding a hook for a hand will be summoned in the upcoming reboot, you better take some time to prepare and brace yourself, especially if you were brave, or foolish enough to say the name Candyman five times while looking into a mirror.
