Ten Movies to Watch in September

Ten great horror films coming at us in September!


Coming to theaters:

IT – September 8th

Let’s start with the most obvious….IT! Years of waiting have finally come to an end you guys because Andy Muschietti’s remake will hit theaters THIS MONTH on September 8th. Right now you can buy advanced tickets to see it on the 7th. (I’ve got mine! So excited!)

When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, neighborhood kids band together to square off against Pennywise (Bill Skarsgard), an evil clown whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.


mother! – September 15th

The new film from Darren Aronofsky that has an incredible cast including Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfieffer. While the story is being kept under wraps, trailers and posters are starting to give us a glimpse of this terrifying story.

A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence. A riveting psychological thriller about love, devotion and sacrifice.


Flatliners – September 29th

Directed by Niels Arden Oplev, the Flatliners remake/reboot/re-imagination comes into theaters late September. Starring Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev and Kiefer Sutherland (star of the original), this is being described as a science fiction psychological horror. It looks pretty fun!

A group of medical students who experiment with “near death” experiences that involve past tragedies until the dark consequences begin to jeopardize them. The five medical students, hoping to gain insight into the mystery of what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring and dangerous experiment. By stopping their hearts for short periods of time, each triggers a near-death experience. As the investigation becomes more and more perilous, they are forced to confront the sins of their pasts, as well as contend with the paranormal consequences of trespassing to the other side.


Friend Request – September 22nd

Director Simon Verhoeven brings a new modern social media horror film.

Laura (Alycia Debnam-Carey) is one of the most popular girls in her high school, seemingly adored by all. She is then sent a Facebook friend request by lonely Marina (Liesl Ahlers). Having initially accepted, Laura finds herself being obsessively pursued by Marina and not long afterward hits the ‘unfriend’ button. When Marina apparently commits suicide in an online video, Laura’s life takes a turn for the terrifying, and she becomes a victim of a supernatural presence, attacked in her own home by a mysterious force. Is Marina responsible? And why does she refuse to disappear from Laura’s friend list, even as it increasingly diminishes in number?


Close Encounters of the Third Kind – September 1st

This is, of course, a re-release of Steven Spielberg’s incredible film, originally in theaters on November 16th, 1977. But in September it is returning to theaters in a beautiful 4K restoration of the director’s cut.

Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) witnesses an unidentified flying object, and even has a “sunburn” from its bright lights to prove it. Roy refuses to accept an explanation for what he saw and is prepared to give up his life to pursue the truth about UFO’s.


Coming to VOD:

The Vault – September 1st

The new film from Dan Bush starring James Franco and Taryn Manning. I’m pretty intrigued by this one only because WHAT IS IN THAT VAULT?!

In order to save their brother Michael’s life, the Dillon sisters, Leah and Vee have organized a bank robbery, but when the upstairs vault doesn’t have enough money to cover Michael’s debt, on the advice of Assistant Bank Manager Ed Maas, they drill into the downstairs vault. But the bank’s basement hides a terrible secret and before long, the Dillons have to choose whether to face the police outside or the terrible supernatural forces in the vault below.


Leatherface – September 21st

Coming to DirecTV is the long awaited prequel to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre series. Directed by Bobby Roe, Leatherface stars Lili Taylor and Stephen Dorff.

In Texas, years before the events of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, in the early days of the infamous Sawyer family, the youngest child is sentenced to a mental hospital after a suspicious incident leaves the sheriff’s daughter dead. Ten years later, he kidnaps a young nurse and escapes with three other inmates. Pursued by authorities including the deranged sheriff out to avenge his daughter’s death, the young Sawyer teen goes on a violent road trip from hell, molding him into the monster known now as Leatherface.


The Houses October Built 2 – September 22nd

The sequel to the 2014 found footage film where a group of haunt lovers go out to find the scariest haunt they can, Bobby Roe brings us this new story.

Five friends try to recover from the trauma of being kidnapped last Halloween by the Blue Skeleton – a group who takes “extreme haunt” to another level – by facing their fears in order to move on. As they go back out on the road to experience more haunted house attractions, signs of the Blue Skeleton start appearing and a new terror begins.


Coming to Netflix:

Little Evil – September 1st

A new Netflix original film from director Eli Craig. This horror comedy looks like a tone of fun and stars Evangeline Lilly and Adam Scott.

Gary who has just married Samantha the woman of his dreams, discovers that her six-year-old son may be the Antichrist.


Gerald’s Game – September 29th

From the incredible Mike Flanagan comes a new Stephen King adaptation that has everyone talking. How on earth is he going to pull off this story? We don’t have long to wait and see!

While trying to spice up their marriage in their remote lake house, Jessie must fight to survive when her husband dies unexpectedly, leaving her handcuffed to their bed frame.
