He has evidenced 23 personalities already, but there is another one waiting to be uncovered and take dominance. Unnerving with full of twists, this is a masterpiece that manages to leave a mark.

2)IT (September 7, 2017)
Stephen King’s magnum opus comes to life in this modern adaption of the novel of the same name. Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise is genuinely scary and lives up to the massive expectation. The movie is set against the sleepy town of Derry, Maine where seven young outcasts spend their summer holidays investigating the missing children. The sunny setting of the movie almost gives a cynical vibe about the impending danger. The kids fighting the evil, both physical and metaphorical is excellently captured by the little actors and director Andres Muschietti.
3)Annabelle: Creation (August 10, 2017)
With countless sequences of hands reaching out for doorknobs, children shuddering in the dark, and the tormenting doll smiling at the screen, Annabelle: Creation is creepy and daunting. Directed by David Sandberg, the movie dwells the origin of the possessed doll that creates a ruckus in the lives of young orphans. Though the movie lacks originality, there are moments that will haunt you in your dreams long after you are done watching the movie.
4)Get Out (April 27, 2017)
Get Out is a smart movie that addresses the issue of racism and puts it against a horror backdrop. The visuals are harrowing and tormenting but answer the true problems of the world. A black man stuck with the psychotic family of his white girlfriend, fighting for life is a social critique that is fearless. First time director Jordan Peele has not held back in this movie, showcasing the brilliance of the greatest sorts.

There are many trivial apocalyptic movies, but then there comes It Comes at Night, which is scary, intense, and smart.
