2017 will go down in movie history as the year in which new age horror blossomed and reached its peak. Films like ‘Get Out’, ‘It Comes at Night’, ‘Creep 2’ and ‘Mother!’ shocked, surprised and messed with our brains. Stephen King ruled supreme with ‘IT’, ‘Gerald’s Game’, ‘1922’ and ‘The Dark Tower’. However we also witnessed a trend of remakes/reboots of classic horror movies such as ‘The Mummy’ and ‘Ring’. Every year there are several new horror movie remakes come out. Most of the remakes get mixed reviews but it looks like the sun will finally shine on them in the session of 2018-2019. Here is the list of upcoming horror movie remakes (new releases) that one should keep an eye on. We hope these latest horror movie remakes are as good as some of the recent ones.
10. The Wolf Man
Earlier this year ‘The Mummy’ kick started the campaign of ‘Universal Pictures’ to launch a cinematic universe of rebooted dark monster movies. A second remake of ‘The Wolf Man’ – the original version released in 1941 – looks like a solid plan to carry forward the legacy of gore and mystery. Fans of this cult monster flick are yet to forget the clumsy 2010 remake which almost destroyed the soul of the movie with substandard CGI effects and lack of ingenuity. Many hopes are being pinned on the upcoming reboot which will be bigger and hopefully better. According to internet news mills Dwayne Johnson is being approached to recreate the iconic character of Larry Talbot and if he agrees to do the film, it will mean that ‘The Wolf Man’ is already headed in the right direction. Expected release date is March 30, 2018.

Michael Myers in a mask is the stuff ‘Halloween’ dreams are made of. In 1978 John Carpenter’s ‘Halloween’ ushered in a new era of ‘slasher’ films and turned Jamie Lee Curtis into the resident scream queen of Hollywood. To mark the 40th anniversary of the game changing movie the fans of the classic will be treated to a new rebooted version in 2018. The news of the remake has already created positive buzz on social media and other online platforms. Of course, the queen of slasher films Jamie Lee Curtis will be back for a final showdown with her nemesis. The remake would be incomplete without her. The original director John Carpenter will be back as the executive producer and David Gordon Green will sit on the director’s chair. If everything goes smoothly the film will hit the theatres just in time for Halloween next year.
