Upcoming Horror/Thrillers with Review Scores (updated Sept 13, 2016)

Review scores from top horror film sites are included whenever possible. Since release dates frequently change, these selections are not in any particular order, though films with more than one review are slotted higher. Films are removed once released widely in theaters or on DVD/Bluray (usually), so limited theatrical release and VOD films will still be found here.
