New Horror Movies 

Another Halloween has come and gone, but there are *always* new horror movies being released every single week. We will continue to highlight each week’s new crop here on BD. Here’s a list of all the new horror films that will be released between November 2nd and 7th, 2021!

 

The Spore

We begin the week with the release of The Spore, a new horror film from Lionsgate about a toxic infection that transforms humans into gooey monsters.

Meadow gets a lift from a stranger in the film “Fleeing from civilization as a horrific plague ravages mankind.” Meadow flees when she notices the driver is gruesomely infected and seeks refuge in an abandoned cabin…or is it? “Now, as ten strangers try to avoid the madness, some must succumb to the hideously mutating fungus and claim the survivors as their bitter prey.”

 

 

Night at Eagle Inn

Night at Eagle Inn, the latest feature from Erik Bloomquist, whose Ten Minutes to Midnight premiered at last year’s Popcorn Frights, is today’s other new release horror film. Popcorn Frights called it “a fast-paced horror-mystery laden with intrigue, black comedy, and plenty of scares,” comparing it to “equal parts The Innkeepers, The Shining, and Vacancy.”

 

 

Dead & Beautiful

Moving on, Shudder will release the new vampire film Dead & Beautiful on Thursday, November 4th, which looks to be a stylish new take on the classic bloodsuckers. In Dead & Beautiful, five spoiled Asian twenty-somethings (Gijs Blom, Aviis Zhong, Yen Tsao, Philip Juan, and Anechka Marchenko) suffer from upper-class ennui, unsure how to spend their days when so little is expected of them (Squires, 2021).

In search of adventure, the five friends form the “Circle,” a group in which they take turns creating a one-of-a-kind, extravagant experience for the others. But things go wrong when the privileged urbanites awaken after a night out to discover they have vampire fangs and an insatiable thirst for flesh, blood, and adventure at any cost.

 

 

The Deep House

On Friday, November 5th, three new horror films will be released, the first of which is our most anticipated film of the week, the underwater haunted house film The Deep House. Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, best known for their ultra-violent Inside, as well as Livide and Leatherface, are diving into aquatic horror with The Deep House, about a couple of divers who discover a haunting in the depths of a lake.

The Deep House is almost entirely shot underwater and follows an influencer couple (James Jagger and Camille Rowe) who go diving in a remote French lake only to find a fully submerged haunted house. On November 5, the film will premiere on EPIX and will be available for digital purchase from Paramount Home Entertainment on the same day.

 

The Wolf of Snow Hollow

Jim Cummings, the director of The Wolf of Snow Hollow, is also back on Friday with his new film The Beta Test, which will be released on November 5, 2021 in select theatres, digital platforms, and on demand (Squires, 2021).

Cummings wrote, directed, and stars in the film.

“Jordan (Jim Cummings), a ruthless talent agent, receives a mysterious envelope offering no-strings-attached sex with a stranger in a hotel room just before his wedding.” He is initially amused, then intrigued, and becomes obsessed with the idea of a secret erotic adventure, which he accepts rashly. But will he come to regret his decisions when his meticulous, superficial world crumbles under the weight of his burgeoning lies?”

 

Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched

In addition to being included in Severin’s upcoming folk horror box set All the Haunts Be Ours, Keir-La Janisse’s award-winning documentary Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched will be available on VOD this Friday.

“Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched” follows the folk horror phenomenon from its beginnings in a trilogy of films – Michael Reeves’ Witchfinder General (1968), Piers Haggard’s Blood on Satan’s Claw (1971), and Robin Hardy’s The Wicker Man (1973) – to its proliferation on British television in the 1970s and its culturally specific manifestations in American, Asian, Australian, and European horror, to its revival over the last decade. Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched investigates the many ways in which we alternately celebrate, conceal, and manipulate our own histories in an attempt to find spiritual resonance in our surroundings, touching on over 200 films and featuring over 50 interviewees.”

 

Dexter: New Blood

The most anticipated new release this week is the return of Showtime’s “Dexter,” with a brand new batch of “Dexter: New Blood” episodes premiering this Sunday, November 7th. Michael C. Hall will star in Showtime’s upcoming revival of “Dexter,” a continuation of the original series that will essentially compensate Showtime for the show’s original finale.

“Set ten years after Dexter vanished in the eye of Hurricane Laura, Dexter: New Blood finds him living under a fictitious name in the fictional small town of Iron Lake, New York.” Dexter may be enjoying his new life, but when unexpected events occur in this tight-knit community, his Dark Passenger inevitably calls.”

The official trailer for the revival shows Dexter attempting to keep his inner beast at bay, but new threats appear to be poking the bear at every turn. And it won’t be long until he kills again…
