    7. Brightburn (2019)

    Sony Pictures Entertainment

    A lot of movie-watchers groaned when they saw the commercial for what at first looked like just another Superman remake. That is until things got a little spooky. So maybe this child from another world crash-lands on Earth just like the Man of Steel. But what if this child's moral compass is a little bit less Clark Kent and more Doomsday? That's the premise of Brightburn, an upcoming horror movie starring Elizabeth Banks and David Denman. After the promising trailer, we couldn't be more excited to see what happens with this classic story told with a dark twist.

    6. Ma (2019)

    This psychological horror film starring Octavio Spencer and Luke Evans is scheduled for released on May 31, 2019, by Universal Pictures. It's about a lonely woman who befriends a group of teenagers and decides to let them party at her house. Just when the kids think their luck couldn't get any better, things start happening that make them question the intentions of their host. It's Academy Award-winner Octavia Spencer's first foray into the horror genre, and we couldn't be more excited to see what she brings to Ma's table.

    Whether you're a fan of Stephen King's book or Stanley Kubrick's film of adaption of The Shining (1985), you should be SUPER excited about this one. The story takes place years after the events of The Shining. A grown-up Dan Torrence meets a young girl with similar powers and tries to protect her from a cult known as the True Knot who preys on children with powers for nefarious reasons. But we'll leave it at and try not to give too much away. The film is set to be released in October, and honestly, we can't wait!

    4. Annabelle Comes Home (2019)

    Warner Bros.

    The third installment in the Annabelle franchise has us curious to see how paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren, are going to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc.

We sure are excited to find out!
