The majority of the time, Stephen King horror adaptations are hit or miss. However, given the excellent cast (including Sophie Thatcher from Yellowjackets!) and the unsettling nature of the trailer, there is a high chance that The Boogeyman will be enjoyable.

We'll just say that the experience of Black horror enthusiasts will be hilariously examined in The Blackening. A group of Black friends who visit a lodge in the woods on Juneteenth is the subject of the movie. They have no idea a masked killer is stalking them, though. You may have found another 2023 horror movie to watch if you're seeking something with an all-Black cast and a distinctive spin on horror comedy that takes place in a cabin in the middle of nowhere.

Forced to play by his rules, the friends soon realize this ain't no motherfu**in' game. Directed by Tim Story (Ride Along, Think Like A Man, Barbershop) and co-written by Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip, Harlem) and Dewayne Perkins (The Amber Ruffin Show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine), The Blackening skewers genre tropes and poses the sardonic question: if the entire cast of a horror movie is Black, who dies first?

For the most part, the Insidious franchise has been average. In that respect, as well as the fact that both films were created by James Wan, they are comparable to The Conjuring movies. However, perhaps this fifth episode will be a hit. After all, the sequel will see Patrick Wilson, the franchise's star, making his debut as a director. Ten years after the events of the previous two films, Insidious: The Red Door will take up and follow a young Dalton Lambert (Ty Simpkins) as he battles demons once more.

It appears that vampire horror is once again on the increase, and Dracula is unsurprisingly a part of the trend. Renfield will take care of the campy horror aspect, but in a way that is also genuinely disturbing. The crew of a merchant ship that becomes the target of Dracula's attention will be followed in The Last Voyage of the Demeter. You can get a general idea of what to expect from this movie, which is directed by André Ovredal (The Autopsy of Jane Doe, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark) if you've read "The Captain's Log" from Bram Stoker's Dracula. Given the environment, it is probably certain to be extremely disturbing.
