For fans of the genre like myself, it feels like a holiday miracle!

This swift transition from theaters to streaming enables audiences to decide whether they remain intrigued by the planned Blumhouse Exorcist trilogy. However, if The Exorcist isn’t your cup of tea, there’s an abundance of other Blumhouse treats to choose from this holiday season.
And if Peacock’s upcoming horror movie lineup doesn’t grab your attention, fear not; there are still plenty of scares hitting theaters. Check out our 2023 movie release schedule to plan your next cinematic experience.
