The year may already be more than half over, but that doesn't mean horror fans have nothing to look forward to. Despite big releases like Get Out, Split, and Alien: Covenant having come and gone, there are lots of scary movies still to come this year. Let's not forget that the scariest time of year, Halloween, is still several months away, which means many movie studios have been holding back their most frightful features for the fall. So what scary films are left for 2017?
Quite a few, as it turns out. The rest of the year promises all kinds of scary movies, meaning just about every type of horror fan is going to find something they like. Some old franchises will be returning, some new franchises will be continuing, some original dark horses will premiere, and one scary flick might just be the most anticipated movie of the year — if its trailer views are any indication. There are also several horror icons involved in varying degrees in upcoming films, such as writer Stephen King, producer J. J. Abrams, and actor Tobin Bell. So draw the shades and prepare yourself for goosebumps and jump scares, because here are 13 scary movies that will be arriving later this year.
