A dimly lit room, a creaking floorboard, a shadow lurking in the darkness, 3 am wake-up time, dogs suddenly barking or a crow cawing, extreme coldness. These are the sure shot signs of paranormal activities around one and trust me I freak out, even at the thought of any of these.
After having watched horror movies after mustering a lot of courage, now it seems kind of addictive. And, who doesn’t love a spine-chilling-pant-shitting movie? Ok! I agree not everyone does. But, if you’re a fan of the genre, then I am pretty sure you are ardently waiting for this year’s releases. Which are, you may ask? Here, have a dekko!
1. Annabelle: Creation
Release Date: August 11, 2017 (US)
James Wan brings yet another horror offering. Directed by David F. Sandberg, the fourth movie in The Conjuring series takes us to Annabelle’s creation. And, the trailer left our mouths dry with fear.

This sci-fi psychological horror which is a sequel to the 1990 film of the same name, which starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon. The trailer of the film looked pretty scary and we are waiting for this one ardently.

Also known as the It: Part 1 – The Losers’ Club, the film is based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name that released in 1986. Tommy Lee Wallace made a miniseries on it in 1990. And, from the looks of the trailer of 2017, I am pretty freaked out, TBH!

The John R. Leonetti (one who directed Annabelle, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation) directorial is one we are expecting to be a spine-chiller. A mysterious music box that grants wishes, but the price is hefty. Would you wish upon anyone to possess that box?
