‘Little Monsters’

If the trailer for this horror comedy doesn’t convince you to watch this, we don’t know what will. Lupita Nyong’o stars as a perky schoolteacher who has to protect her class of little kiddos from a zombie outbreak at a petting zoo.

The bloody comedy horror is described by Collider as charming and action-packed. Catch the Hulu original in theaters on Oct. 8 and on the platform on Oct. 11.

Shot in black and white, this horror film stars Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe as lighthouse keepers who encounter their worst fears as the isolation of their work on a New England island drives them crazy. The Lighthouse arrives on Oct. 18.

‘Zombieland: Double Tap’

The highly anticipated sequel to Zombieland will see the return of Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg, and Abigail Breslin as zombie slayers in this horror comedy. Evolved zombies, a family rift, and White House living pose new challenges for the team. Check it out on Oct. 18.

‘Girl on the Third Floor’

Premiered at this year’s SXSW festival, Girl on the Third Floor focuses on a former playboy/bad boy who is renovating a house alone for his family. But the house is haunted by ghosts of the past. According to early reviews, moviegoers will be surprised about the true evil in this film. It drops on Oct. 25.

‘Doctor Sleep’

Based on Stephen King’s follow-up novel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep picks up with adult Dan Torrance, whose traumatic memories from the Overlook Hotel and psychic abilities hurt and help him.

Dan (Doctor Sleep) and a telepathic teen connect to try to stop another evil who wants to use “the shine” for unscrupulous ends. Find out if he winds up like his father when it hits theaters on Nov. 8.

‘The Lodge’

SlashFilm says The Lodge will scare the living daylights out of you. It stars Riley Keough as a stepmother who’s trapped in a cabin with two children—during a blizzard. But the cabin is inhabited by something evil. Look for a limited release on Nov. 15.

‘Brahms: The Boy II’

Did you know Katie Holmes is in this one? This sequel to The Boy centers on a family who moves into the creepy Heelshire Mansion where we first met that extra-creepy doll. Holmes plays a mother whose young son finds the doll buried in the back yard. Find out what happens on Dec 6.

‘Black Christmas’

This Blumhouse film is a remake of the 1974 Black Christmas movie with the same theme. It’s directed by Sophia Takal and features a group of sorority sisters who are being stalked by a killer. Here’s a synopsis from IndieWire:

“Hawthorne College is quieting down for the holidays. But as Riley Stone (Poots) and her Mu Kappa Epsilon sisters… prepare to deck the halls with a series of seasonal parties, a black-masked stalker begins killing sorority women one by one. As the body count rises, Riley and her squad start to question whether they can trust any man. … Whoever the killer is, he’s about to discover that this generation’s young women aren’t about to be anybody’s victims.”

Black Christmas arrives on Dec. 13. Take your pick from these horror films and you’ll have enough scares to last you through the end of the year.
