8 New Horror Movies You Must See Before Halloween

It's that time of year again! The leaves change color, daylight savings time comes around, and horror movies are all the rage. Halloween is a glorious holiday, when we can seek out thrills and chills for weeks on end, all throughout September and October.

The only problem with the next two months is: Not all horror movies are created equal! When they work, we get Halloween and House Of 1000 Corpses. When they don't...We get Amityville - The Legacy 3D. Why any movie works is certainly open to debate and conjecture. What can't be debated is that when a horror movie works, when it creeps us out and makes us remember the film long after we've left the box office, that is why we keep coming back for more. It's almost like a drug, and not just any "scary" movie can give it to us!

So, with Fall starting anew we thought we would provide a good, hard look at the "8 New Horror Movies You Must See Before Halloween!"

1Insidious Chapter 2 (September 13)

Insidious Chapter 2

The first film took viewers into a crazy world created inside the mind of a wounded child. This second film appears to be expanding on this world, as we now enter the demented mind of the dad. Giving it an added boost of legitimacy is the fact that the main cast (including Rose Byrne and Patrick Wilson) have all returned to reprise their roles (even the dead ones). If you know anything about horror movies, you know that almost never happens. In fact, a lot of horror movies today, unless they are wildly successful, don't even get a sequel that sees the light of day inside a movie theater. If the trailer for Insidious Chapter 2 is any indication, the creep factor has been upped 1000%, leaving viewers to wonder just where this contemporary, gothic horror tale will take us next. In theaters only.

What'd you think? Did we miss anything? Is this list creeping you out? Let us know!

    All this looks boring. If they don't offer us anything else just in time for Halloween, we'll have to re-watch some old stuff.

      How can you mention We Are What We Are and not even give a shout out to the original Mexican film from Jorge Michel Grau. You would be better off skipping everything on this list and going straight to that brilliant piece of the macabre.

        not overly interested in any of these, saw the original Spanish version of We Are What We Are, wasn't impressed, and you know a Hollywood remake is only going to suck ass

              I will skip a remake of "Carrie" and pass on "Curse of Chucky"!! Both look like crap...and true horror fans won't watch crap!

                Why did they destroy the look of chucky? This is just sad

                  @jasonkat Not as good as the first movie but still a good film overall. Not sure if you should wait though. I spent $10.25 on the film and while I was somewhat disappointed I did not feel ripped off at all.

                            @bawnian-dexeus Yeah. After seeing it, I think that's probably because the original was better. It's definitely better than the 39% it received on RT.

                              @thedude-abides Not yet. Don't know when I'll see it, but the critics slammed it. I'm at a 50/50 for it.

                                @bawnian-dexeus I think so, too, though I'm not thrilled by the way it looks. Have you seen Insidious 2? It was pretty good.

                                  @thedude-abides For the most part, I agree. Though Carrie seems like the winner for me.

                                    Lol. Horrid list. All but about 3 are going straight-to-dvd.

                                      I've already seen Insidious 2 and the only other movie on this list I want to see is Curse of Chucky. Carrie looks awful.
