In celebration of DREAD’s upcoming release, Howling Village (on VOD August 17th) we’ve crafted a #MonthOfDread featuring horror movies that take place in villages, small towns, and/or isolated settings!
After her brother goes missing, Kanade, a young psychologist visits his last known location, an infamous haunted and cursed site known as ‘Howling Village’ to investigate his disappearance.Her investigation reveals that the village’s mysteries are connected to her family and works to uncover her family’s dark history.
Howling Village comes from writer and director Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge and The Grudge 2).
Ask yourself: Are you a horror fan who lives every day like it’s Halloween? Do you have the gumption and the stamina to consume a new horror movie every day for an entire year?
