The Month in Horror Releases: June

With May now behind us, it’s time to look forward to what June has to offer in the realm of all things horror. While we’re not be getting many new releases this month, we will be seeing two of the genre’s most talked about films—The Endless and Hereditary. That’s as good of a line-up as we’re likely to see all year, so get excited! But before we get started, here’s what I watched in May:

Revenge (review): The film’s best quality outside of the amazing and gruesome practical effects, is the fact that it does more than just breathe new life into a tired genre, it kicks its ass.

What you shouldn’t miss:

This goes without saying, but this one belongs to both The Endless and Hereditary.

  • Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead need no introduction around these parts. Their previous two films, Resolution and Spring should be enough to sell you on The Endless, which looks like a thing of haunting beauty.
  • What’s there to say about Hereditary that hasn’t already been said? Everyone has been buzzing about this one since its very first festival screening, and every review since has had nothing but good (and terrifying) things to say about it.

Which film are you looking forward to the most?

It’s a tie between The Endless and Hereditary. Both look incredible.

  1. I saw The Endless last year, didn’t think much of it. Maybe you might enjoy it more than I did; I felt it was a step backwards from Spring. Hereditary, on the other hand, I cannot wait to see. We’ve got the media screening here on Monday! So keen to see if it lives up to the hype.

  2. Based on the way they have described the plot for The Mimic, i could be really down to see that. Sounds like a film with a potentially unusual point of view

    1. For sure. I hadn’t even heard of this one until I started making this list, so I’m curious to check it out and see if it’s any good.

  3. Have been waiting so long to see Hereditary and now it isn’t even playing in any cinemas near me. LAME!

    1. That sucks! I feel your pain, though. My theater doesn’t get horror movies and the next closest one is three hours away. Usually have to wait until a VOD release 😦

      1. Oh yeah I remember your saying that when The Witch came out and I complained that it wasn’t playing in any of my cinemas. Oh well, sucks for us both that we have to wait, but it’s more comfortable (and less annoying) watching at home anyway. 🙂

      2. I’m with you there! As much as I love the theater, it’s more often than not ruined by annoying people and kids. Would MUCH rather watch at home.

  4. Most excited for Hereditary, though the release date’s towards the end of June here. Better late than never! And The Mimic seems like an interesting watch.

  5. Endless and Hereditary look fascinating, but I’m also curious about Distorted. I recently discovered the series Black Mirror, so now I’m all into this tech noir these days.

    1. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Black Mirror. I really need to dig into that one. I just started Mindhunter, though, and it’s pretty rad! Too much content to consume!
