5 Best Upcoming Horror Films 2024

Beetlejuice 2: Who doesn’t like Tim Burton’s movies? They all have their unique takes, whether it be animated or real life he surely knows how to capture that eerie mysterious aura for you to seek and discover more. Similarly, Beetlejuice was his classic creation back in 1988 which again came to the surface in last year’s Halloween as a TikTok trend as people from all around jumped in to dress up and rhyme to Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, beetle…soda. The coming film is the sequel to the Beetlejuice movie from 1988 and it will be acted out with the film’s old stars Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder and Catherine O’Hara.

Additionally, this movie also cast three new stars, Monica Bellucci as Betelgeuse’s wife, Willem Dafoe as the detective and one who we all adore Jenna Ortega as Astrid Deetz and with all the craze “Wednesday” had created, Jenna is sure to rock this role as well. Fun fact, this project almost would’ve been impossible due to Tim not having rights to the script because “The Beetlejuice Goes Hawaii” script was still owned by The Geffen. Even after countless obstacles, Tim finally made it after 27 long years and the title is deservedly in the list of ‘5 Best Upcoming Horror Films 2024’.

Burton stated, “It’s something that I really would like to do in the right circumstances, but it’s one of those films where it has to be right. It’s not the kind of a movie that cries out [for a sequel], it’s not the Beetlejuice trilogy. So, it’s something that if the elements are right—because I do love the character and Michael’s amazing as that character, so yeah, we’ll see. But there’s nothing concrete yet.” Only this statement by Tim Burton is enough to include Beetlejuice 2 in the ‘5 Best Upcoming Horror Films 2024’ list.

‘Three’ was supposed to be scrapped as the first issue that Nayla faced was a financial one. So, to cut costs she shot the film in Bangkok and with new actors. She also managed to bring up the topic of exorcism in the Islamic setting. This film is anticipated to arrive this year with a chilling story and it is surely one that should be part of the ‘5 Best Upcoming Horror Films 2024’ list.

‘The Elite of Devils’ might be more of an adventure than pure horror because the journey can portray a lost in labyrinth or maze situation.
