These Are the Only Four New Release Horror Movies Remaining in 2022

This week is not only the first week of winter, officially beginning on December 21st, but the week is also capped off by Christmas Day on Sunday, December 25th. As you might imagine, it’s not exactly going to be a big week for new movie releases, with James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water likely dominating any and all movie conversations these next several days.

And don’t forget that Tommy Wirkola’s Christmas genre movie Violent Night is also still playing in theaters through Christmas, the film thus far slaying its way to $55 million worldwide!

What about NEW genre movies for the week, you ask? Well, there are only four new ones remaining for the entire rest of the year, so let’s take a look at those in one fell swoop.

Here’s all the new horror arriving December 19 – December 31, 2022!

First up, Cinedigm, Bloody Disgusting, and SCREAMBOX are debuting one final horror movie this year, with Jeong Ji-yeon‘s psychological movie The Anchor hailing out of South Korea.

The Anchor will be reporting live from SCREAMBOX on Tuesday, December 20.

In the film…

“When anchorwoman Sera receives a tip that the tipster is about to get killed, she goes out to report it, only to find the tipster and her daughter’s bodies. With an exclusive report on this case, she solidifies her position at the station. However, she begins suffering from hallucinations and makes errors on live television and her role as the main anchorwoman is threatened.”

The Anchor stars Chun Woo-hee, Shin Ha-kyun, and Lee Hye-young.

The horror-comedy Scare Package gets a sequel with Scare Package II: Rad Chad’s Revenge, and it’s set to premiere exclusively on Shudder on Thursday, December 22nd.

In the brand new sequel, “When horror guru Rad Chad Buckley’s funeral turns into an elaborate series of death traps centered around Chad’s favorite films, the guests must band together and use the rules of horror to survive the bloody game.”

The core story, Rad Chad’s Revenge was directed by Aaron B. Koontz. The other segments in the anthology include Welcome to the 90’s directed by Alexandra BarretoThe Night He Came Back Again Part VI – The Night She Came Back directed by Anthony Cousins; Special Edition directed by Jed Shepherd; and We’re So Dead directed by Rachele Wiggins.

The upcoming horror anthology sequel will feature returning Scare Package actors Jeremy KingZoe Graham, and Byron Brown, with newcomers to the franchise including Kelli Maroney (Night of the Comet), Rich Sommer (Summer of 84), Graham Skipper (VFW), Maria Olsen (Starry Eyes), and Shakira Ja’nai Paye (House Party).

Pale Blue Eye trailer

A “gripping whodunit that’s also an Edgar Allan Poe origin story,” Netflix‘s The Pale Blue Eye first comes to select theaters on December 23, 2022, while the film will begin streaming on Netflix on January 6, 2023The Pale Blue Eye was directed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart, Antlers) and stars Christian Bale alongside Harry Melling as Edgar Allan Poe.

Christian Bale portrays retired detective Augustus Landor, tasked with investigating a series of murders. At the center of the murder-mystery is none other than Edgar Allan Poe.

Gillian Anderson (The Crown), Lucy Boynton (Bohemian Rhapsody), Charlotte Gainsbourg (Antichrist), Toby Jones (First Cow), Harry Lawtey (Industry), Simon McBurney (Carnival Row), Timothy Spall (Mr. Turner), Hadley Robinson (Moxie), Joey Brooks (Molly’s Game), Brennan Cook (Encounter), Gideon Glick (Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Fred Hechinger (The White Lotus), Matt Helm (Tragedy of Macbeth), Steven Maier (The Plot Against America), Charlie Tahan (Ozark) and Robert Duvall (The Judge) also star.

“The film, written and directed by Cooper, is based on Louis Bayard’s 2006 novel of the same name—a Gothic thriller that he’s been looking to make for more than a decade. It centers on a young cadet the world would come to know as Edgar Allan Poe (Melling) and a series of murders that took place at the United States Military Academy, West Point, in 1830.”

“West Point, 1830. In the early hours of a gray winter morning, a cadet is found dead. But after the body arrives at the morgue, tragedy becomes savagery when it’s discovered that the young man’s heart has been skillfully removed. Fearing irreparable damage to the fledgling military academy, its leaders turn to a local detective, Augustus Landor (Christian Bale), to solve the murder. Stymied by the cadets’ code of silence, Landor enlists the help of one of their own to pursue the case, an eccentric cadet with a disdain for the rigors of the military and a penchant for poetry—a young man named Edgar Allan Poe (Harry Melling).”

terror train

Tubi‘s remake of the ’80s slasher movie Terror Train was just released for the Halloween season, and their very own sequel to that remake will be the final horror release of the year.

A Tubi Original, Terror Train 2 introduces a brand new storyline, slated to premiere this New Year’s Eve, which pays homage to the festive setting of the first film that famously took place at a NYE party.  From Tubi and Incendo, the sequel wrapped production in Montreal and will be available in the U.S. exclusively on Tubi on December 31, 2022.

Having survived the carnage, Robyn Alomar (Alana) and Tim Rozon (The Magician) will reprise their characters in Terror Train 2, which takes place over a year after the gruesome, vengeful murders took the lives of multiple college seniors aboard the now infamous “Terror Train.”

In the upcoming New Year’s Eve sequel, the remaining survivors are coerced to take a New Year’s Eve redemption ride on the very same train, where a new evil awaits and the terrified passengers must once again fight to survive the ride. 

Ian Carpenter and Aaron Martin (“Slasher”) return as the writing duo, as does director Philippe Gagnon (“Amber Alert”). Terror Train 2 is produced by Graham Ludlow and Kaleigh Kavanagh with Executive Producers Graham Ludlow, Shari Segal and Brook Peters.
