July is going to be a bloody good month for horror fans.
Summertime is not something we associate with horror flicks that much. Summertime is when big blockbuster fantasy, superhero, and high budgeted sci-fi movies dominate, but recently it seems that blockbuster movies are released all around the year and not just summer time and still succeeding. It seems as though horror movies are taking the page out the same book.
January, February, and March used to be the months when horror movies dominated the movie theatres, but it seems horror movies are having a renaissance of a sort in 2019. Pet Sematary, Us, Happy Death Day 2U, The Prodigy and Glass, all saw a varying degree of success in 2019.
July as it seems is going to be even better for lovers of horror flicks. Annabelle and Child's Play are leading horror fans into July where at the start of the month fans will get the chance to watch Midsommar. Another masterpiece from the masterful director of Hereditary and Midsommar hits the theatre on July 3rd. If early reviews are any indications for the movie as a whole, then get ready for another ambitious undertaking by the director of the future.
