We may be on the opposite side of the calendar year from October, but the scares keep on coming at AMC. We saw some truly terrifying releases in 2019, and the early months of 2020 will usher in even more new horror movies to haunt your dreams. Are you brave enough to watch these upcoming releases?
The Turning (January 24)
A modern take on Henry James' 1898 horror novella "The Turn of the Screw," THE TURNING takes us to a mysterious estate in the Maine countryside, where newly appointed nanny Kate (Mackenzie Davis) is charged with the care of two disturbed orphans, Flora and Miles (Brooklynn Prince and Finn Wolfhard). Quickly though, she discovers that both the children and the house are harboring dark secrets and things may not be as they appear.
Gretel & Hansel (January 31)
The story you know hides a secret. A long time ago in a distant fairy tale countryside, a young girl (Sophia Lillis) leads her little brother (Samuel Leakey) into a dark wood in desperate search of food and work, only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil. Alice Krige stars as Holda, the witch who takes the children into her nightmarish home.
The Lodge (February 7)
Being the girlfriend of a recently separated father of two kids isn’t an easy circumstance all by itself, but THE LODGE takes that scenario one step further by having said girlfriend and kids brought together to bond in a remote cabin in the woods during the winter, while the father stays behind to take care of work. When mysterious things begin to happen, the woman begins to question if the kids are just messing with her, or if demons from her past are coming back to haunt her.
Fantasy Island (February 14)
A reboot of the classic television series, FANTASY ISLAND sees a group of friends travel to a remote island where they are told that their greatest dreams can be made into a reality. They go in expecting the operation to be outfitted with highly advanced technology, but what they ultimately discover turns out to be far more sinister and horrifying.
Brahms: The Boy II (February 21)
Audiences got totally freaked out by the porcelain doll known as Brahms in 2016's THE BOY, and now he's back on the big screen in BRAHMS: THE BOY II, gathering a whole new collection of people. The plot centers on a family that moves into the notorious Heelshire Mansion, which turns out to be not such a great thing when young Jude (Christopher Convery), who's mute, discovers Brahms and forms an unhealthy attachment.
Saint Maud (March 27)
Following a successful run at film festivals in late 2019, SAINT MAUD is hitting theatres this spring and is prepared to terrify. Morfydd Clark (CRAWL) stars as Maud, a nun deeply invested in her faith who goes to some extreme measures trying to save the soul of a dying patient in her care.
