Yesterday we looked at horror movie reboots and remakes that are slated for 2017 releases. But there are plenty of horror movie sequels destined for our screens as well. Check out the upcoming sequels below, and mark your horror calendars!
RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER
Releasing: January 27th, 2017
Paul W. S. Anderson is back with this sixth and final(?) addition to the RESIDENT EVIL franchise. This one picks up directly where RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION left off as the survivors head back to Raccoon City for a final battle.
Releasing: May 19th, 2017
Annabelle will be returning this spring under the direction of David Sandberg (LIGHTS OUT). In this installment, a nun and a group of kids become victims of the evil doll.
WORLD WAR Z 2
Releasing: June 9th, 2017
Will this movie be 2017’s summer horror blockbuster? Brad Pitt is coming back, and David Fincher is directing. Since the first movie had little to nothing to do with the novel/source material, the plot of this one is anybody’s guess.
INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 4
Releasing: October 20th, 2017
Adam Robitel (THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN) is helming the film, and the script is penned by INSIDIOUS franchise veteran Leigh Whannell. For more on details on the sequel and larger INSIDIOUS franchise, listen to Leigh’s episode of the SHOCK WAVES podcast.
Releasing: October 27th, 2017
This 8th SAW film is being directed by the Spierig Brothers who gave us PREDESTINATION and DAYBREAKERS. The cast list includes Tobin Bell, but we aren’t sure in what capacity since his character is long dead.
