Most recently adapted by Leigh Whannell for Universal’s 2020 movie The Invisible Man, the classic H.G. Wells story gets a new adaptation with Fear the Invisible Man.

Fear the Invisible Man was released on VOD outlets today, June 13.

It’s not an official Universal Studios horror movie, mind you, but Wells’ The Invisible Man is a classic tale that’s in the public domain, allowing for indie productions such as this one.

In the film from Hanover Pictures, “A young British widow shelters an old medical school colleague, a man who has somehow turned himself invisible. As his isolation grows and his sanity frays, he schemes to create a reign of wanton murder and terror across the city.”

David Hayman (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), Mark Arnold (Teen Wolf), Mhairi Calvey (Braveheart), and Mike Beckingham (Truth Seekers) star.

Paul Dudbridge directed Fear the Invisible Man, written by Phillip Daay.

The SXSW genre-bender Jethica first premiered on Cinedigm’s indie discovery platform Fandor, and the deadpan horror satire is now streaming only on SCREAMBOX.

In the film, Jessica lives in fear of a man named Kevin who follows her everywhere she goes. While on a road trip in New Mexico, she reconnects with Elena—an old friend she hasn’t seen since high school—who has been hiding out at her deceased grandmother’s ranch. When Kevin mysteriously appears again, Jessica and Elena seek help from beyond the grave to get rid of him for good… but Kevin is different from other stalkers and won’t move on so easily.

Well received by critics and audiences, the film has a 91% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and has screened at festivals around the world including SXSW, Busan, Overlook, Maryland, Filmfort, Germany’s B3 Biennial, and the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival—where it received a Special Jury Award.

Hailed by Indiewire as “a rising filmmaker well worth the attention,” Jethica director Pete Ohs (Youngstown, Everything Beautiful Is Far Away) has created “a distinctive funny-sad look at alienation and the extreme desire for companionship in the middle of an empty world.”

Jethica is co-written by Ohs in collaboration with stars Callie Hernandez (Under the Silver Lake), Ashley Denise Robinson (The Beta Test), Andy Faulkner (Youngstown), and Will Madden (The Wolf of Snow Hollow) who plays “Kevin.”

From Lionsgate, Cannibal Cabin is available on VOD beginning today.

The slasher film centers on a group of college students fighting for their lives against a team of masked cannibals, described as “The Hills Have Eyes meets The Evil Dead.

In the movie from director Louisa Warren, “a rollicking road trip turns into a terrifying bloodbath. When a mysterious woman tells five young people about a secret music festival in the countryside, they join her, only to get lost en route. Their troubles continue when they have car problems, forcing them to hole up in a lakeside cabin.

“As the strange, savage locals quietly stalk, attack, and devour the travelers one by one, the survivors begin to suspect that their arrival here was no accident.”

You can’t make a good werewolf movie without a good werewolf, and the new indie horror movie Scream of the Wolf looks to feature a pretty damn cool one. The monster was created by special make-up effects artist Shaune Harrison (“Game of Thrones”), and Dominic Brunt‘s werewolf movie was unleashed on VOD outlets beginning today.

In the film, “Making a vampire movie in an old, abandoned house should have been easy, but with the full moon, the nightmare begins. The body count rises as the cast and crew encounter the mansion’s resident werewolf, and by daylight, only the lucky will survive.”

James FleetJay Taylor, and Thaila Zucchi star.

“With its effective touches of classic Wes Craven and Joe Dante films like ScreamCursed, and The HowlingScream of the Wolf is both fun, frightening, and very imaginative. Horror fans will really enjoy this unique offering from the very talented Dominic Brunt,” Keith Leopard, President of Uncork’d Entertainment, said in a statement shared by Rue Morgue.

The final new horror release for Tuesday, June 13 is Well Go USA’s Bone Cold, the first feature film for writer/director Billy Hanson. It’s now available on VOD outlets.

An experienced elite sniper attempts a nightmarish escape after a failed mission, tracked by enemy soldiers hellbent on revenge, and hunted by something sinister and monstrous, hungry and determined in the action-thriller Bone Cold.

Jonathan Stoddard (Falling for a Killer), Matt Munroe (Independence Day: Resurgence), Trinity Bliss (Avatar: The Way of Water), Jennifer Khoe (Fear Frequency), Shaan Sharma (“The Chosen”), Elise Greene (Torn: A Wicked Trilogy), and Danielle Poblarp star.

Hulu is bringing another original horror movie to the table this year with Jagged Mind, a queer psychological thriller that will premiere exclusively on Hulu on Thursday, June 15.

Maisie Richardson-Sellers (“Legends of Tomorrow”) and Shannon Woodward (“Westworld”) star in Jagged Mind. Here’s the official plot synopsis…

“When Billie starts dating a mysterious new girlfriend, she suffers blackouts and strange visions that feel like she’s living the same moments of her life over and over.”

Kelley Kali directed for 20th Digital Studio and Hulu. The feature film is based on Kali’s short for Hulu’s “Bite Size Halloween” initiative, which was titled First Date.

Harrow House Films will be releasing Aged on VOD this Thursday, June 15.

Written and directed by Anubys Lopez, Aged stars Morgan Boss-Maltais (The Sleepover), Carla Kidd (#TextMeWhenYouGetHome), and Dave McClain (Platinum).

In Harrow House’s horror movie, “After taking a temporary job as a caregiver, a young woman realizes her employer and the house have a dangerous, dark past.”

The Wrath of Becky

After receiving a limited theatrical release just last month, sequel The Wrath of Becky will be heading home later this week. It hits Digital outlets on Friday, June 16.

Meagan wrote in her review of The Wrath of Becky for BD, “Armed with John Wick-like motivation, Becky plunges into a vengeful quest that provokes more violence, bloodletting, and a higher body count. This time a more well-rounded sense of humor offsets her wrath.”

In the film, “Two years after she escaped a violent attack on her family, Becky attempts to rebuild her life in the care of an older woman – a kindred spirit named Elena. But when a group known as the “Noble Men” break into their home, attack them, and take her beloved dog, Diego, Becky must return to her old ways to protect herself and her loved ones.”

Lulu Wilson stars alongside Seann William Scott, Matt Angel, Courtney Gains, Aaron Dalla Villa, Michael Sirow, Denise Burse-Fernandez, Jill Larson, and Kate Siegel.

Matt Angel and Suzanne Coote (The Open House) wrote and directed Becky 2.

The Blackening Jay Pharoah

Lionsgate’s horror-comedy The Blackening is releasing in theaters on Friday, June 16, 2023 for Juneteenth weekend, and tickets for the acclaimed film are available now.

The film looks like a hilarious mix of SawThe Cabin in the Woods, and Scream, filtering its meta commentary on the horror genre through an all-Black lens.

The Blackening, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, centers around a group of Black friends who reunite for a Juneteenth weekend getaway only to find themselves trapped in a remote cabin with a twisted killer. Forced to play by his rules, the friends soon realize this ain’t no motherf****** game.

Directed by Tim Story (Ride Along, Think Like A Man, Barbershop) and co-written by Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip, Harlem) and Dewayne Perkins (“The Amber Ruffin Show,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), The Blackening skewers genre tropes and poses the sardonic question: if the entire cast of a horror movie is Black, who dies first?

Joe Lipsett wrote in his 4-star TIFF review, “While the film isn’t Scream levels of meta, The Blackening fuses social commentary about the Black experience in contemporary America with slasher conventions in a highly entertaining fashion.”

“The humour is successful, the violence is fun and frequently cheeky, and the characters are loveable,” Joe’s review for BD continues. “In a slasher film, that’s saying a lot!”

The Blackening stars Antoinette Robertson, Dewayne Perkins, Sinqua Walls, Grace Byers, X Mayo, Melvin Gregg, Jermaine Fowler, Yvonne Orji, and Jay Pharoah.

On the small screen this week, “Black Mirror” Season 6 comes to Netflix on June 15, while brand new spinoff series “The Walking Dead: Dead City” premieres on AMC on June 18.
