Of course, there is always the chance that some productions will get pulled from getting a theatrical release and move from the big screen to the small screen. Sadly, missing out on the silver screen is a real-life nightmare for any horror filmmaker.

Also, you’ll do well to keep in mind that movies get bumped all the time. Movies slated for a 2025 release could get moved to 2026. If these past years have taught us anything, it’s to expect the unexpected. Still, it’s better to get a later date than no theatrical release.

I usually keep up-to-date with all the horror news, and make sure Heaven of Horror share the best and latest trailers for upcoming horror movies. I love all kinds of horror. My love affair started when I watched 'Poltergeist' alone around the age of 10. I slept like a baby that night and I haven't stopped watching horror movies since. The crazy slasher stuff isn't really for me, but hey, to each their own. I guess I just like to be scared and get jump scares, more than being disgusted and laughing at the grotesque. Also, Korean and Spanish horror movies made within the past 10-15 years are among my absolute favorites.
