The winter of 2017 was a banner season for horror films, with Split and Get Out dominating the box office, beginning one of the most profitable years for horror films of all time. While there might not be a film that reaches the box office heights of either of the aforementioned films, there are a number of intriguing new films, time-tested sequels, and the inevitable stinkers that traditionally appear in this coldest of seasons.
Insidious: the Last Key (January 5): The Insidious franchise returns for a fourth time this January with a slight twist. The film will chronologically take place before Insidious Chapter 2, focusing on the Lorraine Warren-esque psychic investigator Elise Rainier (portrayed by Lin Shaye) from the original film. It seems like some “hitchhiking ghosts” have followed the investigator home to get even after the events that took place in the Lambert Household.
