The big horror release for the week is A24 and director Ti West’s X, released in theaters last month and now headed home to Digital outlets for Premium VOD rental this week.
Along with X, we’re getting FIVE other new horror movies this week!
Here’s all the new horror headed our way April 12-17, 2022.
After making over $11 million in theaters, Ti West and A24‘s slasher movie X is headed home, first to the virtual A24 screening room and later in the week to traditional PVOD.
The Blu-ray and DVD will later release on May 24, 2022.
From critically acclaimed director Ti West (The Innkeepers, The Sacrament), the horror film stars Mia Goth (A Cure for Wellness, Suspiria, Emma), Brittany Snow (Prom Night, Pitch Perfect, Pitch Perfect 2), Jenna Ortega (“You,” 2022’s Scream, The Babysitter: Killer Queen) as well as Grammy Award® nominee Scott Mescudi (better known as Kid Cudi, Don’t Look Up).”
In the new movie, “A group of actors set out to make an adult film in rural Texas under the noses of their reclusive hosts — an elderly couple with a farm and boarding house for rent. But when the couple catches their young guests in the act, the cast finds themselves in a desperate fight for their lives in this tantalizing slasher from writer-director Ti West.”
Meagan wrote in her review, “X is a crowd-pleasing doozy when it comes to brutal bloodletting and kills. Some deaths leave you queasy, and some will leave you cackling with glee. All of it is immensely satisfying.” She continued, “A deceptively simple setup gives way to a go-for-broke horror-comedy that leaves you breathless from laughter and nail-biting tension.”
A sequel to 2015’s Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead, Wyrmwood: Apocalypse is coming to Blu-ray in May, but first up XYZ Films brings the sequel to VOD on Thursday, April 14.
The sequel “follows a soldier in a zombie-infested Australian wasteland who has dedicated his life to tracking and capturing survivors for the Surgeon General in hopes of finding a cure.”
“Rhys lives in the zombie-infested wasteland. His job is to capture civilians & deliver them to what’s left of the military. When Rhys captures a half-zombie-half-human named Grace, he comes to believe she is the key to ending the apocalypse.”
Directed by Kiah Roache-Turner, this one stars Luke McKenzie, Goran D. Kleut, Shantae Barnes-Cowan, Nicholas Boshier, Bianca Bradey, and Jay Gallagher.
The Asylum and Tubi hit the high seas for the latest Tubi Original horror movie Titanic 666, which will be exclusively available on the Tubi streaming service this Friday, April 15.
Annalynne McCord (Excision) stars in Titanic 666, alongside Keesha Sharp (Power Book II: Ghost), Lydia Hearst (Z Nation) and Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica).
“After a mammoth cruise ship sails over the site of the Titanic’s disaster, dark and deadly events start to occur on board; as the ship’s captain investigate the tragic occurrences, it becomes clear that the passengers from the original Titanic have returned.”
Nick Lyon directs Titanic 666, written by Jacob Cooney and Jason White. Joseph Gatt, Derek Yates, Michael J. Chen, Jhey Castles, Kendall Chappell and Giovannie Espiritu also star.
Elisa Cuthbert (House of Wax) returns to the horror genre in brand new horror movie The Cellar, which is coming to select theaters as well as Shudder on Friday, April 15th.
In the film, written and directed by Brendan Muldowney…
“Keira Woods’ (Elisha Cuthbert) daughter mysteriously vanishes in the cellar of their new house. She soon discovers there is an ancient and powerful entity controlling their home that she will have to face or risk losing her family’s souls forever.”
Eoin Macken, Abby Fitz and Dylan Fitzmaurice-Brady also star.
Trace wrote in his SXSW review, “It’s wonderful to see Elisha Cuthbert back in the genre and Muldowney manages to eke out a few genuine chills in the third act, but it’s not enough to merit a strong recommendation. It’s a competently made film, but in an age where people have endless viewing options from streaming services, competent just doesn’t cut it anymore.”
Before he appears in “Stranger Things 4,” Robert Englund first heads to Netflix in new original horror movie Choose or Die, which will begin streaming this Friday, April 15th.
Choose or Die begins after a young coder (Iola Evans) fires up a lost 80s survival horror game and unleashes a hidden curse that tears reality apart, forcing her to make terrifying decisions and face deadly consequences. Asa Butterfield also stars.
Toby Meakins directed Choose or Die, written by Simon Allen.
Also out this Friday, Ben Jagger’s (Corbin Nash, The Paddy Lincoln Gang) Room 203 will be releasing here in the States in limited theaters and on VOD platforms.
“The film follows two female roommates who are tormented by the vengeful spirits dwelling in their gothic-style, rented apartment, which contains an ornate centerpiece.”
The Room 203 cast features Francesca Xuereb (Murmur, Forever & Always), Viktoria Vinyarska (Highway to Havasu) and Eric Wiegand (Hulu’s Outsiders).
The English-language film is adapted from Nanami Kamon’s Japanese novel published by Kobunsha. The screenplay is by John Poliquin (piral), Jagger and Nick Richey (Low Low).
