With the exception of a few commercial releases, the bulk of new horror additions we’ll see arriving in November are independent affairs and low budget chillers. But within this particular batch are some awfully interesting pictures. You’ll find a few controversial releases headed your way, a foreign film or so (including an insanely promising anthology picture), an early seasonal treat (that promises more terror from the dreaded Krampus!) and even a flick focused on today’s strange and deeply disturbing trend of cyber bullying.
Take a look at a thorough list of the horror films hitting the masses via theatrical, DVD and VOD platforms this November!
