8 New Horror Movies Releasing This Week Including ‘Predator’ Prequel and Slashers from Blumhouse & A24!

This week marks the return of one of the most beloved horror franchises of all time, with the Predator crash landing on Hulu with a brand new prequel tale set in the distant past.

Additionally, we’re getting a brand new slasher movie from Blumhouse and Peacock, and the latest A24 horror movie also arrives in select theaters as we head into the weekend.

Here’s all the new horror releasing August 1-August 7, 2022!

This week’s new horror offerings kicked off with indie Allegoria on Shudder yesterday and traditional VOD outlets today, the directorial debut of Powerman 5000’s Spider One.

Krsy Fox (Frank), Adam Busch (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), Bryce Johnson (“Pretty Little Liars”) and Scout Compton (Halloween) star in the musician’s horror movie debut.

In Allegoria, “A group of artist’s lives become unwittingly entangled as their obsessions and insecurities manifest monsters, demons and death.”

Formerly titled The Cow, Vertical Entertainment brings Gone in the Night home and onto VOD outlets today, August 2nd, a new movie starring Winona Ryder (“Stranger Things”).

John Gallagher Jr. (10 Cloverfield Lane), Dermot Mulroney (The Courier), Owen Teague (It franchise) and Brianne Tju (47 Meters Down: Uncaged) also star in the film.

In the film, “Kath (Ryder) and her boyfriend (Gallagher Jr.) arrive at a remote cabin in the redwoods, only to discover that a mysterious younger couple is already there.

“The rental has apparently been double-booked, and with nowhere else to go, they decide to share the cabin with these strangers. When her boyfriend disappears with the young woman, Kath becomes obsessed with finding an explanation for their sudden breakup—but the truth is far stranger than she could have ever imagined.”

Eli Horowitz (“Homecoming”) directed the film, co-written with Matthew Derby.

What Josiah Saw

Being billed as a Southern Gothic horror movie, Vincent Grashaw‘s new film What Josiah Saw will stream exclusively on Shudder beginning this Thursday, October 4th.

“After two decades, a damaged family reunites at their remote farmhouse, where they confront long-buried secrets and sins of the past.”

Robert Patrick (The Terminator), Nick Stahl (Sin City), Scott Haze (Child of God) and Kelli Garner (Lars and the Real Girl) star.

Robert Alan Dilts wrote the film’s script.

XYZ Films brought Addison Heimann‘s SXSW horror movie Hypochondriac to select theaters last week, and the film will now make its way onto On Demand outlets on August 4th.

We’re getting Donnie Darko vibes from the trailer, which you’ll find below.

In the film, written and directed by Addison Heimann…

“Will, a young Hispanic gay potter, is one gregarious guy. His boss is terrible, but he’s got a great boyfriend and a great job. Unfortunately, behind that veneer is a dark past of violence and mental illness that he is desperate to keep hidden. When his bipolar mother comes out of the woodwork after ten years of silence, he begins exhibiting unexplainable symptoms and spirals into an obsession, determined to solve this mystery of his own.”

The cast for Hypochondriac includes Zach Villa, Devon Graye, Paget Brewster, Marlene Forte, Madeline Zima, Yumarie Morales, and Chris Doubek.

This Friday is a huge day for new horror, kicking off with Dan Trachtenberg‘s (10 Cloverfield Lane) new movie Prey, which uncloaks exclusively on Hulu this Friday, August 5.

Taking place long before the events of the other movies in the franchise, Prey documents the very first time a Predator has hunted on Earth, introducing a brand new beast being referred to as the “Feral Predator.” He’s leaner, meaner, and nastier than ever before, and the only thing standing in his way is a fierce warrior on a quest to prove her worth to her tribe.

Amber Midthunder (“Legion”) stars in Hulu’s upcoming Predator movie Prey as a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior. Set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, Prey is the story of a young warrior named Naru.

Naru has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who roam the Great Plains, so when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved predator with an advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.

Bodies Bodies Bodies

A24‘s new horror movie Bodies Bodies Bodies is headed to select theaters this Friday, August 5, 2022, before going wide and releasing everywhere on August 12, 2022.

In the A24 slasher, “When a group of rich 20-somethings plan a hurricane party at a remote family mansion, a party game turns deadly in this fresh and funny look at backstabbing, fake friends, and one party gone very, very wrong.”

Meagan Navarro wrote in her review for BD, “Using a familiar social deduction game to implode an affluent group of fake friends in the most heinous way makes for a dementedly fun time that’s just as mean-spirited with the horror as it is the comedy.”

The cast for A24’s latest movie includes Amandla Stenberg, Maria Bakalova, Pete Davidson, Rachel Sennott, Myha’la Herrold, Chase Sui Wonders, and Lee Pace.

Halina Reijn directed Bodies Bodies Bodies for A24, written by Kristen Roupenian, Sarah DelappeChloe Okuno (V/H/S/94, Watcher), Joshua Sharp, and Aaron Jackson.

Andrew Semans‘s Resurrection will be released by IFC Films in theaters and on-demand on Friday, the film starring Rebecca Hall (The Night House) and Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs).

In Resurrection, “Margaret (Hall) leads a successful and orderly life, perfectly balancing the demands of her busy career and single parenthood to her fiercely independent daughter Abbie. Everything is under control. But that careful balance is upended when an unwelcome shadow from her past, David (Tim Roth), returns, carrying with him the horrors of Margaret’s past.

“Battling her rising fear, Margaret must confront the monster she’s evaded for two decades who has come to conclude their unfinished business. Writer-director Andrew Semans delivers pure havoc one moment and feelings of deep familiarity the next, creating a film that promises a gripping emotional journey fused with a grand guignol style living nightmare.”

Meagan Navarro’s review out of Sundance calls Resurrection a showcase for Rebecca Hall. Meagan writes, “Because Semans infused horror into this psychological thriller, Resurrection captivatingly goes to some dark, grisly places. Early on, a grotesque nightmare scene gives only a tiny hint of where Margaret’s journey will end.”

They/Them teaser

And last but not least, Peacock debuts Blumhouse slasher movie They/Them this Friday, August 5th, wherein Kevin Bacon welcomes campers to a safe summer camp space.

Of course, that space is in reality anything but safe…

They/Them, pronounced “They-slash-Them,”  is a slasher horror film set at an LGBTQIA+ conversion camp executive produced, written, and directed by John Logan (“Penny Dreadful”).

In the film, “Several queer and trans campers join Whistler for a week of programming intended to ‘help them find a new sense of freedom.’ As the camp’s methods become increasingly more psychologically unsettling, the campers must work together to protect themselves. When a mysterious killer starts claiming victims, things get even more dangerous.”
