Top 10 Most Anticipated Upcoming Horror Movies in 2019
Did you know that there are certain things that come with welcoming a new year? Worry not if you don’t, because as always, your girl is here to help as I have separate it into 3 easy piles for you. *wink*
What comes first is obviously the new experiences, new people to meet, new places to go. Everything that has to do with self growth goes into this first category. What comes second, is achieving the goals and plans that you set for yourself in this new year. Be it losing weight, starting a new business, meeting more people, getting yourself a zaddy (read: significant other). Everything that has to do with aspiration and your own target goes into this pile.
For the last –– but definitely not the least –– group, is
where I shine. Sorry, the girl got too ahead of herself. In this third group is where all your long awaited tv shows –– all my Game of Thrones fan where y’all at –– and movies congregate. Every year, this list renews itself as you tick off movies and tv shows, and even books, that you have watched or read the year before.
With that said, please allow your girl to start off your 2019 with a list of horror movies that you should look forward to. Why? Two simple reasons. One, because honestly, when is it not a good time to watch horror movies? And two, I’m just a junkie for horror movies so I’m trying to get you in on it with me too.
