The Month in Horror Releases: November

November is here, which means we’re entering the dark days of horror! While we’re going to certainly see a decline in the amount of genre releases, there are still a few films coming out in the next couple of months that you’re going to want to keep an eye on. This month we have the big release of Victor Frankenstein and a couple of solid looking indies that I think are going to be pretty fun. But before we get started, here’s what I watched in October:

  • In the Dark (review): Anthologies are in full swing this year, so it’s always a nice surprise to catch one that has plenty of originality and some unforgettable shorts. In the Dark was a welcome surprise, that’s for sure.
  • Knock Knock (review): The Eli Roth-helmed home invasion thriller disappointed and couldn’t quite live up to its premise.
  • The Final Girls (review): A surefire classic, The Final Girls is everything we love about the genre with a fun twist!
  • Bone Tomahawk (review): One of my favorite films of the year, Bone Tomahawk is as wicked as it gets, featuring an all-star cast that goes to some dark places.

Predictions

What you shouldn’t miss:

This is a very, very slow month for horror so I’m going with the big release of the month in Victor Frankenstein.

  • While the trailers revealed a much different looking adaptation of the classic Frankenstein tale, the film looks quite fun with a great cast backing it all up.

What you should take a chance on:

If you take a shot in the dark at any of these films you should go with Corin Hardy’s The Hallow, which I think a lot of people are going to dig.

  • The Hallow is a practical effects driven monster movie that has some really stand out moments (particularly the attic scene), so if you dig fairytales with a horror twist then you’ll probably get a kick out of this one (read my review).

Which film are you looking forward to the most?

Gonna have to go with the obvious choice here and say Victor Frankenstein!

  1. Sadly November is a pretty bleak month of horror … Nothing exciting coming out really … On a brighter note, I finally saw ‘The Green Inferno’ the other day. I actually enjoyed it 🙂

  2. Pretty craptacular looking month really. I’ve only heard of the Frankenstein one and nothing that I have heard makes me interested in it in the slightest (as much as I love that story as a cinematic source.

    Applesauce could be good and I love the concept behind Deep Dark, though I’m not familiar with any of the people involved. Bojana Novakovic is a great Aussie actress so cool to see her popping up in The Hallow

    1. Yeah, I’m afraid there rest of the year is going to be like this. The one teaser I saw for Applesauce was great, I’m very interested to see how that one turns out. Frankenstein could go either way, I’m hoping it’s not total shit, though.

  3. Wait – what? There’s a new Dr Frankenstein movie?! How did I not know this?! And I bet everyone on social media has been talking about it for weeks, right? Sheesh.

    Well, I’m glad I know now. See what a valuable public service you’re offering here?

  4. The movies released this month which I watched so far are:

    Tiger House: Sort of ” You´re Next” pastiche but very limited technically and dramatically.Forgetable. D

    The Hallow: Good start; a very oppressive atmosphere but the “monster fest” after the second half drags the movie to the mud.Great make up and effects but I wouldn´t waste time with this. C

    Deep Dark: Sort of a Kafkian horror story.Some humour elements but the film is very bleak and sometimes absurdly good.I wish they had a higher budget.On a side note, the “hole” has a wonderfully sensual voice…By far the best of the month. B

    #Horror: This is the perfect example of form against sustance when both fail.In its core the film is a laughable and stupid slasher that is so incompetent that you end up hating everyone on the movie.it´s impossible to feel an ounce of empathy for ayone, even the “protagonist”.THe actresses are so bad that sometimes you can´t tell “Cat” (one of the girls) from “Sam” (our poor out of place heroine).They try to be clever putting us inside a “Social media ” game that is a bad mix of candy crush saga, tumblr and fighting game terminology (!).It tries to show us the “horrible turn our addiction to social media can take” but it´s as shallow as its carachters.This is as bad as it gets.Just watch the trailer .The movie also runs in circles just like it but it takes longer and makes us sicker.Hated this with all my strenght.

    1. Nice, thanks for the update! The only once I’ve seen is The Hallow and I totally agree with you there. The practical effects and monsters are A+ and that attic scene is totally nuts, but the movie just gets lost in its own story and becomes a mess. Decent fun, though!
