1. In The Earth
Directed by Ben Wheatley, this horror film is a response to the COVID-19 outbreak and was produced in just 15 days. This existential horror film tells the story of a scientist and his team, who must venture deep into the jungle in search of a cure for a dangerous plague that is plaguing the world.
But as night falls, their journey becomes a terrifying journey through the heart of darkness as the forest they pass comes to life and terrorizes them.
Released on April 30, 2021, this psychological horror film depicts the thoughts of 8-year-old Jenny (Violet McGraw) who has PTSD. After her mother dies in a hit and run, Jenny falls into deep despair. But with the help of a doll given by her father, an artist, that comes to life, and with the comfort of her mother’s spirit, Jenny begins to feel better.
However, a bad custody battle between his father and grandfather over Jenny then ignites the doll’s dark side. In a dark and dark style, this film is filled with jumpscares that will make your heart skip a beat.
3. The Unholy
Released on April 2, 2021, the film revolves around Alice (Cricket Brown), a young girl with hearing loss who claims to have been given the power to see, hear, and heal the sick after being visited by the Virgin Mary.
When a series of supernatural phenomena occur, a journalist named Gerry Fenn (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) tries to find answers to these oddities, which lead to terrible events.
This film is the ninth installment in the Saw franchise which was released in May 2021. It tells the story of a sadistic copycat killer who begins to design an elaborate death trap in Jigsaw. Detective Zeke Banks (Chris Rock) then tries to catch the culprit to make his father Marcus (Samuel L. Jackson), a former cop with a history of chasing Jigsaw, proud.
Like the film Saw, which is full of blood and horror, this film also gives that distinctive touch in a more different and tense way.
This is the eighth film in the Conjuring franchise, which was released on June 4, 2021 yesterday. The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It follows the paranormal investigations of Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) as they search for answers to a murder that may have been caused by demonic possession.
The story begins when a police officer catches a dazed and bloody young man walking the streets. He is accused of murder, but the suspect claims demonic possession to be the cause, forcing the Warrens to undertake a supernatural investigation they have never seen before.
That’s a row of the best and scariest horror films in 2021 that you shouldn’t miss. They can be your spectacle during this pandemic that has not subsided. With so many jumpscares and scary ghosts, you can watch this with your family for more fun.
