The 16 Most-Anticipated Horror Movies Coming to Cinemas in 2018

Scared yet? You will be. The year cometh 2018 will bring with it a slew of horrific and thrilling new movies for you to choose from. Halloween is always the big holiday for new horror flicks, but there are plenty to look forward to before October rolls around. Click ahead to see them all, sorted by release date.

‘A Quiet Place’

Directed by John Krasinski
Starring: Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Noah Jupe, Millicent Simmonds
Release date: April 6, 2018

Boasting one of the best trailers around, A Quiet Place is exciting because of the concept. As the trailer shows, a family must live in silence for fear of attracting a supernatural being that hunts with its ears.

Recently, we saw how scary silence can be in 2016's Don't Breathe, and it may have been an inspiration here. The movie is also a family project for the husband and wife directing/acting team of Krasinski and Blunt. They should have good chemistry by now.

‘Venom’

Directed by Ruben Fleischer
Starring: Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Woody Harrelson, Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate
Release date: October 5, 2018

You may not believe this comic book movie will be horrifying, but then again, you may not know Venom. Marvel fans are well-versed in the exploits of America's favorite symbiote. Those long, sharp teeth were made for chomping! It'll be interesting to see how Hardy portrays Eddie Brock, who fuses with an alien being to create his explosive alter-ego, Venom. Whatever happens, it'll be rated R so expect the blood to flow.
