We have once put together the previously planned horror theatrical releases of spring, which you can refer to later in the year or on directly as a stream can look forward to.
New mutants: The Marvel horror film and last X-Men film of the Fox era under the Disney banner. Despite the bad reputation and the many production problems, we hope for an exciting scary trip with mutants, should it ever be published.

Gretel & Hansel: Oz Perkins' dark horror in which ES star Sophia Lillis takes on the role of Gretel. Even if the story only lures less behind the stove, the film inspires with a soothing atmosphere and great scary images.

Monsieur Killerstyle: Another bizarre film by the rubber director Quentin Dupieux. In this narcissistic comedy ordeal a cowboy is driven mad by his suede jacket fixation.

Zombi Child: In this zombie drama, love and longing meet in the girls' boarding school for genre-typical lust for meat. This slightly different zombie story should Don't miss fans of The Walking Dead.

Antebellum: The producers behind Get Out and We take a crazy trip with Janelle Monáe in the leading role, in which reality and time are turned upside down.

The Hunt: Probably the most controversial film of the year, which was postponed indefinitely after a huge shitstorm in the course of the first trailer and now finally sees the light of day. In the USA, this is published directly on VOD.

Antlers: The 2nd Disney Horror of Spring was produced by monster master Guillermo del Toro. In it, a boy is followed by eerie creatures from the gloomy forest.

Saw: spiral: One of the most exciting horror projects in 2020. Comedian Chris Rock wants that Saw franchise as a brutal cop thriller resuscitate and gets support from Saw veteran Darren Bousman. It should also be mentioned that Samuel L. Jackson played along.

Candyman: After Get Out and We, Jordan Peele (this time only as an author) brings us another horror highlight: the reboot of the iconic Candyman and already that Trailer promises a surreal horror trip.
