There is something about serial killers that leave us glued to the screen. Slasher horror movies all start from a similar premise: a group of survivors suffer the misfortune of crossing paths with someone willing to end their lives one by one. The originality of the deaths is precisely one of the characteristics that is most valued in this type of production. Then, the context is usually different, which also provides another degree of distinction. In 2022, several legendary sagas have returned, some of which have been around since the 1970s, as in the case of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
No, Jason Voorhees hasn’t had a chance to scare anyone else at Crystal Lake’s lakeside camp. Instead, other known killers have returned or will return to their old ways. Ghostface, Leatherface, Michael Myers.… the nightmare has only just begun. In the mood for slasher? These are just some of the movies we can enjoy this year.

Sidney Prescott has survived all that can be survived, but he will still have to face Ghostface at least one more time. The film directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett is a tribute to the saga. On this occasion, the focus is on a younger generation of characters, but all the features of the saga continue in the film: the mystery about who is hiding behind the mask, the deaths, and the meta-cinematic language, which fits as good as in the 90s. In addition, the appearance of classic characters like Sidney, Gale and Dewey stands out thanks to the treatment that has been given to them.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Netflix is ??the platform that has been responsible for the production of this direct sequel to the seventies classic. The film, which is already available, has been directed by David Blue Garcia. As in Scream and other current slashers, it tries to adapt to modern times. However, the characters are not convincing and the film lacks more appeal than some of the sequences in which Leatherface kills. The group of influencers who come to this ghost town in Texas have no charisma or chemistry between them, so what they want to tell us hardly matters. If all you’re looking for is a little blood, you might be hooked.
Another of the serial killers who resists even as decades pass is Michael Myers. His main victim, his right eye for death, is still Laurie Strode , the charismatic character played by Jamie Lee Curtis. This movie is a direct sequel to Halloween 2018 and Halloween Kills. Everything seems to indicate that there is nothing to do, that whatever plans are drawn up, Myers is going to rise from the dead again. All in all, Halloween Ends anticipates at least one outcome for this story. Or maybe Michael Myers has become immortal? It opens in October 2022
Jeepers Creepers: Reborn
The reboot of Jeepers Creepers is underway and will be released this year 2022, although at the moment there is no confirmed specific date.
