Last year was quite a good one for horror and thriller movies with Get Out, It and Annabelle: Creation scoring super high numbers at the box office. It can be said that 2017 set quite a bar for movies catering to this genre and with that comes quite a competition for movies anticipated to hit the screens this year. Interestingly, we have got quite a list. These 10 picks might be a living nightmare, for good.
1. The Nun
Father Burke is sent to Rome to investigate the sudden mysterious death of a nun guess, who she is? Well, that’s our Valac from the Conjuring series! The movie is in the post-production phase and we are yet to see a trailer.
2. Mom and Dad
A twisted version of Home Alone, parents all over the world are bitten by a rage bug and suddenly running to kill their children. Watch the trailer and go bananas.
Shot majorly on an iPhone, the movie is a thriller with Claire Foy in a mental institution as she tries to fight her mind and fears, a reality or her delusions, we don’t know! The movie releases this March, 23.
A family lives in a post-civilization era, with luxury dinners and board games. Everything is calm and peaceful because there are things outside that would kill them at the slightest of noise. If they hear you, they hunt you. Watch the teaser and do not make a sound. The movie is due this April.
5. Truth or Dare

7. The Purge: The Island
