October was a wonderful horror movie month. There were some hits (When Evil Lurks, Saw X), some misses (Exorcist: Believer, Pet Sematary: Bloodlines), and some undecided (Five Nights at Freddy’s, Nun II). Although November isn’t quite as packed with mainstream releases there are a few worth noting.
We have the trailers for some of these with a short synopsis of each. From a shark movie to an infamous Canadian serial killer procedural this list is as mixed as a Thanksgiving buffet. Speaking of which there is also an Eli Roth slasher that uses Thanksgiving as its premise.
If there is one we missed make sure to let us know in the comments so that we can add it to our watchlist.
