The Month in Horror Releases: December

Another year is almost in the books, which means we have one last month of horror movies for 2019. While the holiday season isn’t necessarily known for its horror presence, December has plenty of interesting genre offerings to look forward to—one in particular is the much-talked about indie Daniel Isn’t Real. This is actually a pretty interesting month for the genre because it’s made up almost entirely of indie films with only the Black Christmas remake seeing a wide release—a lot of stuff looking to sneak onto your year-end list, so let’s dig in and start watching!
