7 New Horror Movies & Shows Releasing for Thanksgiving Week Including the ‘Resident Evil’ Reboot!

While Ghostbusters: Afterlife tops the box office in its first full week of release, you may be wondering what else we can expect on the road to Thanksgiving and Black Friday. It’s actually a surprisingly robust week for the horror genre, with the Resident Evil film franchise returning to theaters and a brand new Bruce Campbell horror-comedy making its way home to Digital.

Here’s all the new horror headed our way between November 22-28!

Bruce Campbell and Devon Sawa lead the cast of the brand new holiday horror-comedy Black Friday, which released in theaters last week and comes home this Tuesday, November 23.

In the Black Friday-themed horror-comedy: “On Thanksgiving night, a group of disgruntled toy store employees begrudgingly arrive for work to open the store at midnight for the busiest shopping day of the year. Meanwhile, an alien parasite crashes to Earth in a meteor. This group of misfits led by store manager Jonathan (Campbell) and longtime employee Ken (Sawa) soon find themselves battling against hordes of holiday shoppers who have been turned into monstrous creatures hellbent on a murderous rampage on Black Friday.”

The cast also includes Ivana Baquero (Pan’s Labyrinth), Ryan Lee (Goosebumps), Stephen Peck, and Michael Jai White (Spawn). The film was composed by Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump.

We debuted the trailer here on BD. Watch it now.

Also on Tuesday, Shudder will release The Strings, fresh off the film’s world premiere at the Salem Horror Fest this past Halloween season. The film marks Ryan Glover’s directorial debut.

In the dead of winter, musician Catherine travels to her aunt’s remote cottage on the shores of Prince Edward Island to work on new material in solitude. Soon after visiting an abandoned farmhouse with local photographer Grace, strange and disturbing occurrences begin to manifest at the cottage, escalating each night and eroding Catherine’s sense of reality.

The all-female cast of The Strings is headed by up and coming musician Teagan Johnston (aka Little Coyote), marking her acting debut, and she also wrote and performed the film’s original music live on set. Jenna Schaefer co-stars as Grace.

Watch the trailer here.

Tuesday, November 23rd also brings us the second-to-last episode of SYFY and USA’s “Chucky” Season 1 from Don Mancini, which is titled “Twice the Grieving, Double the Loss.”

Chucky has begun brutally killing off the parents of the show’s teenage characters, while Tiffany and Nica-Chucky form a surprising new bond and Andy and Kyle from the original two Child’s Play movies continue to hunt down and terminate possessed Chucky dolls. But what exactly is Chucky’s end game and what can we expect from these final two episodes?

Here’s the official synopsis for this week’s new episode:

“As Hackensack reels from Chucky’s relentless–but secret–reign of terror, the Mayor tries to allay fears by cluelessly arresting an innocent suspect. Meanwhile, the kids desperately try to figure out Chucky’s mysterious endgame–before it’s too late.”

The Resident Evil film franchise returns to the horror roots of the video games with new movie Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, which hits the reboot button on the film series.

From director Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down, The Strangers: Prey at Night), Sony’s new movie takes a bite out of theaters on November 24, with no at-home release scheduled.

“Returning to the terrifying roots of the massively popular franchise, fan and filmmaker Johannes Roberts brings the games of the billion dollar franchise and the most successful video game adaptation in history to life for a whole new generation of fans.”

“Once the booming home of pharmaceutical giant Umbrella Corporation, Raccoon City is now a dying Midwestern town. The company’s exodus left the city a wasteland…with great evil brewing below the surface. When that evil is unleashed, the townspeople are forever…changed…and a small group of survivors must work together to uncover the truth behind Umbrella and make it through the night.”

The cast includes Kaya Scodelario (Crawl) as Claire Redfield alongside Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man and the Wasp) as Jill Valentine, Robbie Amell (Upload) as Chris Redfield, Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy) as Albert Wesker, Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap) as Leon S. Kennedy, and Neal McDonough (Yellowstone) as William Birkin.

We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for Black Friday deals on November 26th, but don’t forget that there are also two brand new horror movies being released this Friday.

The first one is titled The Last Rite, coming to VOD platforms.

An official selection of FrightFest, Samuel Goldwyn Films will be releasing The Last Rite, a new exorcism horror film that’s said to be rooted in writer-director Leroy Kincaide‘s love of The Amityville Horror, Poltergeist, and The Exorcism of Emily Rose.

In the film, “A medical student suffering from sleep paralysis finds herself plagued by a demonic entity hell-bent on ripping her apart. With time running out and the dark force consuming her from within, Lucy is left with no alternative but to seek help from a local priest, But Father Roberts has a dilemma – does he obey orders or help Lucy by conducting his own exorcism against the will of the church?”

You can watch the trailer right here.

The other new horror movie releasing this Friday is the Indian film Chhorii, from T-Series, CryptTV, and Abundantia Entertainment. It’ll be exclusively available on Amazon Prime Video.

Chhorii was directed by Vishal Furia, and it’s a remake of his own Marathi-language horror Lapachhapi. The cast also includes Mita Vashisht, Rajesh Jais and Saurabh Goyal.

“Set deep in the heartlands, Chhorii is the story of a modern, young couple, Sakshi (Nushrratt Bharuccha) and Hemant. Sakshi is eight months pregnant with her first child when the couple, forced out of their home, escapes from the city and seeks refuge in a house located deep inside sugarcane fields. The house is inhabited by an old couple who seem to know more than they tell. Unknown to Sakshi, the house and the fields are ridden with dark secrets that start unravelling as the story unfolds, posing a threat to Sakshi and her unborn child.

“Even as Sakshi tries to save herself and her unborn baby, scary sightings of three mysterious kids and a charred monster coupled with an eerie lullaby, emanating from an old transistor, wreak havoc with her sanity. Will Sakshi be able to save herself? Will she be able to protect her unborn child? Sakshi’s quest to find the answers to these questions and escape from the horrors takes us on a journey that’s deals with scares, both normal and paranormal.”

The final new release this week brings a little holiday horror to the table, with Netflix premiering the brand new Danish creature feature series “Elves” on Sunday, November 28th.

In Elves, “A Christmas vacation turns into a nightmare for a teenager and her family when they discover an ancient menace that stalks their island getaway.”
