Things Heard and Seen is adapted from the book “All Things Cease To Appear,” written by Elizabeth Brundage. It is a spine-chilling story about a young couple that moves into a country home with a muddled past. Amanda Seyfried ( Jennifer’s body) takes the audience on an expedition as she discovers the darkness in her house, town, and her marriage. On the totally opposite side, Seyfried’s naive yet restless Catherine is her ever-doubting husband George, played ominously by James Norton. Co-directed by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, Things Seen and Heard mixes old-school psycho-sexual thriller with the ever-changing direction of the plot and updated horror technologies, it is a chilling modern classic.

2. We Have a Ghost:

After the Presley family moves into a low-price bric-a-brac, they soon get to know that they have a ghost named Ernest (David Harbour) already occupying their attic when the teenage son Kevin (Jahi Di’Allo Winston) records him in a video. Kevin’s dad Frank (Anthony Mackie) considering this as an opportunity, uploads the video and makes a sudden viral sensation that gets the attention of the national level to their house – but some of the people watching a ghost could compromise the position of the whole family. We Have a Ghost is a new spin on the haunted house banal that utilizes internet virality. And a hunting ghost craze to make a funny original film.

3. Viking Wolf:

Directed by Stig Svendsen, who co-wrote the screenplay with Espen Aukan, Viking Wolf is a Norwegian horror film that applies a never-before seen on TV and fun alternative to classic werewolf movies. Surrounded by frightening mystery and placed in a disturbing ambiance, Viking Star stars Jahi Di’Allo Winston as Thale, a teenager who has been an outcast and he shifts to a smaller town when her mother starts working for the local police department. Promoting good CGI for the beasts and passionate use of blood, gore, and shadows, the enthralling story of Viking Wolf succeeds with screaming excitement.

4. The Silence:

Based on Tim Lebbon’s novel “Silence,” directed by John R. Leonetti’s The Silence is set in a world struck by creatures who rely on sound to hunt their prey, The Silence follows a deaf teenager, played by Kiernan Shipka, along with her family who is on a run to find a shelter. Little do they know that they will join a cult. Shipka without a doubt is a skilled actress, but still The Silence was immensely criticized for casting a hearing actress in a deaf role, apart from Shipka’s non-native American Sign Language skills. Even with all the downfalls The Silence is a heart-thumping watch that also stars Stanley Tucci, John Corbett, and Shipka’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina co-star Miranda Otto.

5. Eli:

Director Ciarán Foy fascinates us with his haunting heart-wrenching movie Eli, starring Charlie Shotwell (Morbius) as the nominal young boy with a scarce autoimmune disease. Co-starring Lili Taylor (Outer Range) as the bizarre doctor curing the boy’s illness, Eli compares Taylor’s tranquil attitude with ghastly imagery to produce nerve-racking excitement for scary movie watchers. Also starring Max Martini (Bosch: Legacy), Kelly Reilly, and Sadie Sink (Stranger Things), Eli is a gripping mystery that plays in the dark, hinting at ghostly interference while building up tension and unfolding into a horrific fright-fest.
