The year ahead is shaping up to be an exciting one for genre fans and Netflix subscribers. While 2023 was a relatively week year in terms of original horror on the streaming service, it seems like Netflix is planning several big scary movie releases in 2024 and we cannot wait to see what the streamer has in store!
Perhaps the biggest horror release this year is the upcoming Lee Daniels movie The Deliverance, which has been in the works for several years now and is based on a (supposedly) true haunting. We also know that a sequel to the Spanish film The Platform is in the works and production will soon begin on a fourth Fear Street movie! Here's what horror fans have to look forward to on Netflix in 2024.
The Deliverance is a new horror movie from acclaimed director Lee Daniels about the 2014 haunting of Latoya Ammons starring Andra Day, Mo'Nique, Glenn Close, Rob Morgan, Caleb McLaughlin, Aunjanue Ellis, Omar Epps, and Tasha Smith. The actual story of Latoya received international attention when she and her family claimed that they were haunted by some paranormal activity. The Deliverance originally wrapped filming in 2022, but will finally come out this year.
Bloody Disgusting recently reported that Time Cut, the next movie from Freaky writer Michael Kennedy, will be coming to Netflix later this year. It's a time-traveling feature taking inspiration from classic slashers like Scream. Netflix already has the page set up for it on the site, which you can check out right here. It follows a teen who travels back to the early 2000s to try and stop a killer from murdering her sister. Kennedy wrote the script and Hannah Macpherson (Into the Dark, School Spirits) directs. Happy Death Day and Freaky director Christopher Landon serves as a producer.
The Platform sequel
A sequel to the twisted Spanish horror film from 2020 is expected to land on Netflix this year! We don't have much to share regarding the upcoming movie beyond some casting announcements, Milena Smit and Hovik Keuchkerian, and a logline: "Do you think you can enforce justice in the hell of The Platform? And if you try, who’s going to enforce it?" Netflix also shared some first-look photos from the film, which you can see in the embedded tweet above.
It's What's Inside
Netflix acquired this hot property from the 2024 Sundance Festival and it is slated to debut on the streaming service later this year. The film, which comes from director Greg Jardin and stars Brittany O'Grady, James Morosini, and Alycia Debnam-Carey, follows a group of friends at a party who are unsettled when their estranged friend shows up with a mysterious suitcase.
Fear Street: Prom Queen
We don't have confirmation that Fear Street: Prom Queen will premiere this year, but there is a good chance that it could come out in time for Halloween since production on the movie is scheduled to begin soon. R.L. Stine recently confirmed that the fourth Fear Street will be based on his book Prom Queen and it'll be a standalone, so it's not a direct continuation to the previous Fear Street trilogy. Hoping for a late 2024 release might be pushing it, but I have my fingers crossed. If not, then we can probably expect a summer 2025 premiere.
