If you’re anything like me, you probably look forward to new horror movies coming out so you can see them in theaters for a night out. This fall, horror movies fans are getting a boatload of new content coming, and here are some of the ones I’m most excited for:




The premise of this SAW movie seems unlike any other we have seen in this series before. The story line, of course, follows John Kramer punishing those he deems as bad people or unworthy of life, but this time it’s personal. John Kramer has been looking for a cure for his cancer and finds people who claim they can cure him, but unfortunately for them, this is false.


The trailer shows some pretty gory traps, and the movie does seem like it’s going to be a good one. You can expect to start seeing this in theaters Sept. 29.


Five Nights at Freddy’s


This is one that a lot of people are excited for, and honestly this is the one I look forward to most on this list.


The games have such a large fanbase that have long awaited this movie and a movie about the FNAF lore. If you’re unaware of this lore, here’s a quick summary. A man who owns a pizza/party place shoves a bunch of dead kids into animatronics, and the souls of those kids seek revenge on any human/adult they see.


However, there is so much more to the lore than just this, and everything would take way too long to explain.


The movie will follow Mike Schnmidt (played by Josh Hutcherson) in his job as the security guard with these haunted animatronics making his night shift one to remember.


It’s notable as well that Mathew Lillard will play William Afton, who is the franchises main villain.

You can expect to find this in theaters on Oct. 27.


Totally Killer


I’m mainly excited for the vibes of this movie. Totally Killer is an 80’s slasher. It’s going to be a horror-comedy that also has to do with time travel. A girl accidentally travels back in time to when her mother was a teenager and there was a killer on the loose. 


This movie actually looks very funny, and it will be coming to Prime on Oct. 6.


All of these movies are coming out just in time for the Halloween season, so this next coming month is going to be a great time for horror movie fans.
