Six New Horror Movies Release This Week — Plus A Netflix Series

Ghostbusters: Afterlife
Columbia Pictures

While it’s certainly the season to be jolly, it’s still a good time to indulge in the frights and delights of the horror genre. While some people love horror excusively during spooky season, others love it all year round.

Horror is a genre that lets you disconnect from the world around you, and some even find scary movies and series relaxing. No matter what your tie to all things horror is — you’re in luck this week.

As Bloody Disgusting shared, six new films and a series are coming to a platform or theater near you this week! So sit back, grab your hot cocoa in a spooky Christmas mug, and enjoy.

Ankle Biters

Ankle Biters is part cautionary tale, part horror film all mixed into one. The film sees Sean as he falls for a widowed mother of four who falls for him right back. It seems like things are going right for the pair until Laura’s children find them in an awkward predicament and think Sean is out to hurt their mom. What happens next won’t be a fun ride for anyone involved. Ankle Biters is on VOD today.

The premise for the film is as follows:

“Sean, a pro hockey enforcer, has fallen in love with Laura, a widowed mother of four young daughters. When Laura’s children mistake an act of lovemaking as an attack, they plot to protect their mother at all costs and with horrific results.”

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is the film we’ve all been waiting for.

A House on the Bayou

Bonding time will be at the bottom of their to-do list when a family finds a remote home to reconnect in.
