I’ve been loving the hype surrounding horror films in 2023, from big blockbuster titles to indie newcomers. But sometimes it’s hard to find and figure out what titles are worth getting excited for that aren’t constantly seen in commercials or on social media. While those horror films can be excellent, they can often overshadow others. Well, it’s time I give you some titles to look into and maybe some you had no idea about! Below will be the list of films with expected premiere dates (as best as I can get for some) and a synopsis to help you get a general idea of what to expect.

“Based on a single chapter, the Captain’s Log, from Bram Stoker’s classic 1897 novel Dracula, the story is set aboard the Russian schooner Demeter, which was chartered to carry private cargo – twenty-four unmarked wooden crates – from Carpathia to London. The film will detail the strange events that befell the doomed crew as they attempt to survive the ocean voyage, stalked each night by a terrifying presence on board the ship. When it finally arrived near Whitby Harbour, it was a derelict. There was no trace of the crew.”
