13 New Horror Movies Releasing This Week Including ‘Terrifier 2’ in 800+ Theaters!

October is now officially underway, and these next several weeks are going to be absolutely jam-packed with fresh horrors. As always, we want to make sure you don’t miss a beat.

This week’s new releases include the return of an iconic horror franchise and the sequel to a recent cult classic, and that’s just the tip of this particularly bloody iceberg.

Here’s all the new horror arriving October 4 – October 9, 2022!

We kick off the week with brand new animated movie Trick or Treat, Scooby-Doo!, which was released on Digital today ahead of the DVD release on October 10th.

In the film, “Mystery Inc. has cracked the case to top all cases! They’ve tracked down Coco Diablo, the head of the notorious costume crime syndicate that colludes The Black Knight, Space Kook and the Ghost Diver. With Coco and her kitty in prison, Mystery Inc. thinks that they can finally enjoy a break. Wrong!

“Suddenly, menacing doppelgänger ghosts of the Scooby crew and favorite classic foes show up in Coolsville to threaten Halloween. Now it’s up to the meddling kids – and their unlikely new partner Coco – to unmask the latest scoundrel and save Halloween! For Shaggy and Scooby-Doo, with trick-or-treating on the line – this time it’s personal!”

Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo! features Frank Welker as Scooby-Doo/Fred Jones, Grey DeLisle as Daphne Blake, Matthew Lillard as Shaggy Rogers and Kate Micucci as Velma Dinkley. Executive Produced and Directed by Audie Harrison (“Uncle Grandpa”) from a teleplay by Audie Harrison & Laura Pollak (“Fairfax,” “Rise of the Pink Ladies”) and Daniel McLellan (“Lost in Space”). Sam Register (Looney Tunes Cartoons) serves as executive producer.

The practical effects-heavy They Crawl Beneath, which had its world premiere at the Texas Frightmare Festival, debuted on digital, Blu-ray and DVD today from Well Go USA.

In the film, “Young police officer Danny (Joseph Almani) is working on an antique car at his uncle’s remote ranch when a major earthquake hits, pinning him under the vehicle and leaving him bloodied, alone, and with no way to call for help. Just when he thinks the claustrophobic nightmare can’t get any worse, something truly horrifying emerges from the fissures in the ground, forcing Danny to engage in a brutal fight for his life—and his sanity.”

Directed by Dale Fabrigar (D-Railed, Lonely Boy), it also stars Michael Pare (The Lincoln Lawyer), Joseph Almani (Law of Attraction), Arthur Roberts (Not of This Earth), Christopher M. Dukes (Heaven’s Revenge), Karlee Eldridge (House of Bodies), Elena Sahagun (Tremors 3: Back to Perfection) and Natalia Bilbao (No Man’s Law).

Now available from Dread, the zombie movie Among the Living is written and directed by Rob Worsey, and it was released On Demand everywhere this morning.

In Among the Living

“Stranded in the countryside in the aftermath of a deadly outbreak, older brother Harry fights to protect his younger sister, Lily, while he desperately searches to find refuge with their father. Harry and Lily are determined to survive their journey as they strive to avoid an infected population with a thirst for blood as well as the greater threat of other survivors.”

Dean Michael Gregory, George Newton, and Melissa Worsey star in Among the Living.

Mr. Harrigan's Phone trailer

Mr. Harrigan’s Phone will be ringing its way onto Netflix on October 5. The film is an adaptation of one of the stories featured in Stephen King‘s collection, If It Bleeds (2020).

The new movie comes from “American Horror Story” creator Ryan Murphy and Blumhouse, with John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side) writing and directing.

King himself recently tweeted, “I have seen a close-to-finished cut of Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, written and directed by John Lee Hancock, and it’s nothing short of brilliant.”

In Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, “When Craig, a young boy living in a small town (Jaeden Martell) befriends Mr. Harrigan, an older, reclusive billionaire (Donald Sutherland), the two begin to form an unlikely bond over their love of books and reading. But when Mr. Harrigan sadly passes away, Craig discovers that not everything is dead and gone and strangely finds himself able to communicate with his friend from the grave through the iPhone in this supernatural coming-of-age story that shows that certain connections are never lost.”

Terrifier 2 FrightFest

Bloody Disgusting, Cinedigm, and Iconic Events are bringing Damien Leone‘s Terrifier 2 to theaters nationwide on October 6, the Certified Fresh sequel bringing uncut slasher movie mayhem to over 800 theaters across the United States.

Deadstream trailer

Shudder is bringing SXSW horror hit Deadstream (read Meagan’s review) into our homes this Halloween season, the found footage horror-comedy arriving Thursday, October 6.

The feature directorial debut from husband-and-wife filmmaking couple Vanessa and Joseph Winter, who also share writing co-credits, premiered earlier this year at the 2022 SXSW Film Festival in the Midnight section to wild acclaim from audiences and critics. Joseph Winter also stars, alongside Melanie Stone and Jason K. Wixom.

Deadstream follows a disgraced internet personality who attempts to win back his followers by livestreaming one night alone in a haunted house. But when he accidentally pisses off a vengeful spirit, his big comeback event becomes a real-time fight for his life.

Shudder previews, “With Deadstream, a rare horror comedy as frightening as it is funny, the Winters have boldly announced themselves as exciting emerging talent ready to take the genre scene by storm. The work of the filmmaking duo can next be seen in a segment from Shudder’s hotly-anticipated V/H/S/99, the latest installment in the celebrated found-footage horror series, which premieres out of TIFF’s Midnight Madness later this month.”

Best Horror Films

Also on Thursday, October 6, Michael Dougherty’s Halloween horror classic Trick ‘r Treat will finally be released into movie theaters for the VERY FIRST TIME from Regal!

As you may recall, Warner Bros. and Legendary didn’t seem to know what to do with Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat way back in 2007, showing the film at various festivals but not actually releasing it wide until 2009. And the film wasn’t even released in theaters at the time, instead brought direct to DVD. Oh how the times have changed, to say the very least.

Here we are 15 years later and Trick ‘r Treat has become a hugely popular fan favorite, with merchandise filling up Spirit Halloween stores every Halloween season. As Dougherty had hoped way back in 2007, Sam has become a bona fide horror and Halloween icon in the past several years, the film far exceeding any expectations Warner Bros. originally had for it.

Trick ‘r Treat features five interwoven stories that occur on Halloween…

“An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband; and a mean old man meets his match with the demonic, supernatural trick-or-treater whose name is Sam.”

Coming this week from Paramount Pictures is a sci-fi horror movie titled Significant Other, which will debut exclusively on Paramount+ on Friday, October 7, 2022.

Starring Maika Monroe (It Follows, The Guest, Watcher), Significant Other is written and directed by Dan Berk and Robert Olsen, the duo behind the under-seen 2019 gem Villains.

In the upcoming film…

“A young couple take a remote backpacking trip through the Pacific Northwest and face sinister events leading them to realize that everything about the place is not as it seems.”

Werewolf by Night review

Disney+ is howling at the moon as they continue to get into the Halloween spirit, with the Marvel Halloween Special “Werewolf by Night” set to debut on Friday, October 7.

Gael Garcia Bernal (M. Night Shyamalan’s Old) is playing a character who is capable of transforming into a werewolf while retaining human intellects.

In the special, Ulysses Bloodstone’s passing leaves the throne open for a new leader of his monster hunter guild. His wife has assembled a group of the most ruthless monster slayers at Bloodstone Castle for a ceremonious hunt to determine their new ruler. The winner of the quest must successfully retrieve the Bloodstone from a creature prowling the castle grounds, and the hunters are free to take out their competition if it suits them.

That paints a massive target on the back of Ulysses’ estranged daughter Elsa (Laura Donnelly), who’s crashed the ceremony to demand her birthright. She finds common ground with mercenary Jack Russell (Gael Carcia Bernal), a reluctant ally harboring a few shocking secrets.

Paramount Home Entertainment will release the psychological horror/thriller film The Visitor on Digital and On Demand on October 7, 2022, and on EPIX in December 2022.

In the film, “When Robert and his wife Maia move to her childhood home, he discovers an old portrait of his likeness in the attic – a man referred to only as ‘The Visitor’.

“Soon he finds himself descending down a frightening rabbit hole in an attempt to discover the true identity of his mysterious doppelgänger, only to realize that every family has its own terrifying secrets.”

The Visitor  stars Finn Jones (“Game of Thrones”), Jessica McNamee (Mortal Kombat), Dane Rhodes (Where the Crawdads Sing) and Donna Biscoe (“Saints & Sinners”). The film was written by Adam Mason (Songbird) & Simon Boyes (Songbird) and directed by Justin P. Lange (The Seventh Day).

Hulu Hellraiser trailer

One of the biggest new releases of the week, Hulu’s Hellraiser, a reimagining of Clive Barker’s 1987 horror classic from director David Bruckner, will debut in the U.S. on October 7.

In the new Hellraiser movie from Hulu, “A young woman struggling with addiction comes into possession of an ancient puzzle box, unaware that its purpose is to summon the Cenobites, a group of sadistic supernatural beings from another dimension.”

David Bruckner (The Night House), who helmed Netflix’s The Ritual as well as sections of Bloody Disgusting’s horror anthologies V/H/S and Southbound, is directing the relaunch of the Hellraiser franchise for Spyglass Media, set to be a Hulu feature film written by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski (SiREN, Super Dark Times, The Night House).

The project is being described as a “loyal, yet evolved re-imagining of Clive Barker’s 1987 horror classic,” and the best possible news is that Clive Barker is on board as a producer.

The ensemble cast includes Odessa A’zion (“Fam,” “Grand Army”), Adam Faison (“Everything’s Gonna Be Okay,” “Yes Day”), Drew Starkey (“Outer Banks,” “The Devil All the Time”), Brandon Flynn (“Ratched,” “13 Reasons Why”), Aoife Hinds (“The Long Call,” “Normal People”), Jason Liles (“Stereoscope,” “Rampage”), Yinka Olorunnife (“The Transporter”), Selina Lo (“Boss Level,” “Q8 Unleashed”), Zachary Hing (“Halo”), Kit Clarke (“Leonardo”), with Goran Visnjic (“The Boys,” “Timeless”) and Hiam Abbass (“Succession,” “Blade Runner 2049”).

In addition to Hulu’s HellraiserOdessa A’zion will also be seen in horror movie The Inhabitant this Halloween season, which will release on Digital on Friday, October 7.

Leslie Bibb (Mrs. American Pie), Dermot Mulroney (Umma) and Lizze Broadway (The Rookie) also star in the movie from director Jerren Lauder (Stay Out of the F**king Attic).

The film follows “Tara (A’zion), who like any other teenage girl, is just surviving high school — yet her father Ben (Mulroney) and mother Emily (Bibb) seem strangely distant. Amidst a nearby spree of gruesome axe murders, Tara has sightings of terrifying entities, forcing her to question her own sanity and shocking ancestry.

“After a visit to her aunt in a mental asylum and a night in Lizzie Borden’s actual home, Tara realizes she is inextricably tied to the horrifying curse that has plagued her bloodline for almost a century. As victims pile up and the police close in, Tara is left with no choice but to face her own demons.”

Kevin Bachar wrote the script for The Inhabitant.

Fiona Dourif is back in “Chucky” Season 2 this week, and Dourif will also be starring in the indie horror movie Don’t Look at the Demon. It arrives in select theaters on October 7.

In the film, “Led by the troubled medium Jules (Fiona Dourif), an American team of paranormal TV investigators – along with Harris Dickinson (Where the Crawdads Sing, Triangle of Sadness, The King’s Man), Jordon Belfi (Entourage), and Randy Wayne (Dukes of Hazard: The Beginning) – go to the home of a couple who claim to have experienced inexplicable, threatening disturbances. Delving into the mystery, they encounter possessions and apparitions more terrifying than any they’d witnessed before – actual contact with the other side.

“As the cameras roll and bodies are possessed, they’re inevitably overwhelmed by this violent supernatural force. Their only hope? Jules. She refuses to face what really happened when her first supernatural encounter left her sister dead. But her dark past, if she can unlock it, may be their only hope of stopping the demon before it’s too late.”

Director Brando Lee grew up on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur on a steady diet of Hollywood films like Jaws, The Exorcist, and Star Wars. He studied Film & TV at Columbia College and worked for various productions in Los Angeles. He created Brando Studios B&L Creative, which produced a stream of TV projects and theatrically released films in Malaysia. Lee also co-founded Barnstorm, which produced Don’t Look at the Demon.

“There is a Ying and Yang in all my pursuits,” Lee tells us. “I believe the world should have the Good and the Bad, both Angels and Evil beings. In essence it is all about maintaining the balance of the Universe. Intrigued by experiences I have been through, I started exploring the “them” around us. I am thrilled to be able to bring my personal vision to the movie screen, with my first-hand experience showing a realistic twist to a typical possession story.”
