The Best Movies To See in Theaters – New Movies Out Now

Summer may be the season that sees the highest number of mainstream releases, but there is still plenty to look forward to in the weeks ahead as we approach autumn and winter in terms of new movies hitting theaters.

In particular, as we gear up for Halloween in the coming weeks, September will see several films be more deeply rooted in horror — such as the new supernatural screamfest, Barbarian, or the Danish indie film, Speak No Evil.

Reviews for Barbarian have been generally enthusiastic thus far, praise being allocated towards the movie’s suspense, unpredictability, and originality in updating the haunted house subgenre.
