5 New Horror Movies Releasing This Week and “Servant” Returns for a Brand New Season

While the brand new Scream movie continues to top the box office after the long 4-day weekend, scaring up $35 million domestically at the time of writing this article, a new week brings another batch of new horror movies this week. Additionally, a popular horror series returns to television with a new season, and another horror series premieres this week.

Here’s all the new horror coming between January 18-January 23, 2022!

This week’s new horror releases kick off with Jack in the Box: Awakening, a sequel to the 2019 film that let loose a demonic clown from his box. It’s now available on VOD outlets.

In Awakening: “Terminally ill heiress Olga Marsdale acquires a mysterious gothic box containing a captured demon – Jack. The powerful entity within makes a deadly deal with Olga and her devoted son Edgar – deliver six victims to Jack, and Olga will live. They trap several unsuspecting victims for him within the vast crumbling mansion – but can they deliver all six before it’s too late? Or will Amy, the young and innocent woman recently hired to look after the estate turn out to be more than a match for both the family and the Jack?”

What’s inside the box? Watch the trailer below to find out.

RLJE Films disturbs An Unquiet Grave today, available now on VOD, Digital HD and DVD.

“A year after losing his wife in a car crash, Jamie convinces her sister, Ava, to return with him to the site of the accident and help him perform a strange ritual. But as the night wears on, it becomes clear that he has darker intentions. An Unquiet Grave is an exploration of grief, and the harm we cause when we don’t take responsibility for our own healing.”

Terence Krey directed the film, starring Jacob A. Ware and Christine Nyland.

The third indie horror movie that’s now available today is titled Ditched, written and directed by Christopher Donaldson. The film is Donaldson’s directorial debut, but he has served as a storyboard artist on many notable projects in recent years including “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” “Superman and Lois,” and even the 2019 remake of Child’s Play.

In Ditched, “After a routine prison transfer crashes in the forest, young Inuit paramedic Melina finds herself surrounded by murderers with a mere 100 feet to climb out of a ditch to escape.

“When they are attacked by an unseen force in the forest, Melina’s short journey to safety becomes the ultimate contest of wills.” Watch the film’s official trailer below.

Werewolf sisters fight monsters in “Supernatural Academy,” a brand new animated young adult horror series that debuts on the Peacock streaming service Thursday, January 20th.

Supernatural Academy chronicles an otherworldly adventure of sisters marked at birth. One twin sister was raised in the Supernatural world, confident and popular. The other was raised in the human world, an offbeat outsider. Now they’re about to be reunited at the Supernatural Academy, and neither one of them is thrilled about it.

“These adversarial twins will have to learn to get over their differences and trust each other in order to save themselves – and save the world.”

The show’s voice cast includes Larissa Dias (Supernatural), Gigi Saul Guerrero (Marvel Super Hero Adventures), Vincent Tong (Ninjago), Cardi Wong (Supergirl), Shannon Chan-Kent (Good Trouble), Bethany Brown (Charmed), Brian Drummond (Mega Man: Fully Charged)Barbara Kottmeier (Supernatural)Alessandro Juliani (Battlestar Galactica)Ali J. Eisner (Fraggle Rock), Diana Kaarina (The Hollow) and Kathleen Barr (Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch).

Also on Thursday, Orphan star Isabelle Fuhrman plays a central role in the period horror movie The Last Thing Mary Saw, set in the year 1843 and coming to Shudder on January 20th.

Fuhrman stars alongside Rory Culkin (Lords of Chaos), Stefanie Scott (Insidious: Chapter 3) and Judith Roberts (You Were Never Really Here).

Written and directed by Edoardo Vitaletti, “The Last Thing Mary Saw begins in Southold, New York, 1843: Young Mary (Stefanie Scott), blood trickling from behind the blindfold tied around her eyes, is interrogated about the events surrounding her grandmother’s death. As the story jumps back in time, we witness Mary, raised in a repressively religious household, finding fleeting happiness in the arms of Eleanor (Isabelle Fuhrman), the home’s maid. Her family, who believe they are seeing, speaking, and acting on God’s behalf, view the girls’ relationship as an abomination, to be dealt with as severely as possible. The couple attempt to carry on in secret, but someone is always watching, or listening, and the wages of perceived sin threaten to become death, with the tension only heightened by the arrival of an enigmatic stranger (Rory Culkin) and the revelation of greater forces at work.”

On the small screen, the M. Night Shyamalan-produced horror series “Servant” returns for a third season this week, premiering on Apple TV+ this Friday, January 21st.

Executive produced by M. Night Shyamalan, the third season takes place three months after we leave the Turner household in season two, where things appear to be back to normal.

“Dorothy and Sean dote on Jericho, Julian has a new girlfriend, and Leanne has moved back into the brownstone. With the threat of the cult looming and suspicious visitors staked out in a nearby park, Leanne does everything she can to feel secure—ultimately causing more chaos for the Turner family. As Sean starts trusting in Leanne’s power, Dorothy feels increasingly threatened and worries for Jericho’s safety. While the Turners struggle to keep their family whole, they must come to terms with the costs of Jericho’s return.”

Be careful what you wish for…

The final new horror release for the week is Warhunt, starring Mickey Rourke and In Theaters, On Demand and Digital on January 21st. This one should pair well with 2018’s Overlord.

The film is set in 1945…

“A US military cargo plane loses control and violently crashes behind enemy lines in the middle of the German black forest. Immediately ruthless Major Johnson (Mickey Rourke) sends a squad of his bravest soldiers on a rescue mission to retrieve the top secret material the plane was carrying. Led by Sergeant Brewer (Robert Knepper) and Walsh (Jackson Rathbone), the soldiers venture deep into the forest near the crash site. They soon discover hanged Nazi soldiers and other dead bodies bearing ancient, magical symbols. Suddenly their compasses fail, their perceptions twist and straying from the group leads to profound horror as they are attacked by a powerful, supernatural force. Fighting for their sanity and struggling to survive they must uncover the shocking truth behind the force before the Nazis and do everything they can to remove all evidence it ever existed, even at the cost of their own lives.”

Reggie Keyohara III and Scott Svatos wrote the film, directed by Mauro Borrelli.
