Movies coming out in February 2022 and January. The year 2022 has arrived, and hopefully, it won’t feel like 2020 all over again.
Everything that you’re going to read right now is subject to change. Some of the films scheduled for release this year were supposed to come out in 2020, so studios have no problem putting them back. New movies will be added; some movies will be removed, and releases will begin to shift in the first two weeks of the year. For the time being, however, is a lengthy list of the most popular, best, most exciting sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and genre films set to premiere in January and February 2022.
More are sure to follow.

In this gorgeous anime film by Mamoru Hosoda, a lonely young woman with social anxiety in the real world is transformed into the most famous singer in U, the enormous virtual realm known as “Little World.” Simply watch the trailer and you’ll be entranced.
Scream (January 14)
Ghostface is back to terrorize not just the new kids in Woodsboro, but also the now-adult residents who have survived the prior four films. We loved it and you can read our review here.

What movies are opening in February 2022?
Ghosts of the Ozarks (February 3)
In this horror Western, a doctor in post-Civil War Arkansas discovers the beautiful rural town he’s just moved to is harbouring some very dark, seriously ghostly secrets. Tim Blake Nelson and David Arquette star alongside one another.
The Long Night (February 4)
After being abandoned in a church as an infant, Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s Halloween) plays a woman who begins investigating her perplexing family history, only to unearth an end-of-days cult seeking out her help in fulfilling a terrifying prediction.
Moonfall (February 4)
In his newest disaster film, he’ll again blow up Earth. It’s not global warming, Godzilla, or huge spacecrafts this time around: it’s the moon.
Fear (February 11)
The viral airborne creature in this horror film, which features King Bach (The Babysitter, Greenland), Ruby Modine (Happy Death Day), and rapper T.I. among its cast, is a “contagious airborne hazard” that will ruin a joyful weekend. Isn’t it true that we can all identify with the scenario?
A Banquet (February 18)
In this family drama, a teenager begins claiming that she has been transformed by a supernatural higher power—a flight of fancy that seems less fantastic once she stops eating yet doesn’t lose any weight, to the growing anguish of her widowed mother.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (February 18 on Netflix)
We weren’t particularly enthusiastic about yet another entry in the Texas Chainsaw film franchise until we noticed it will pit Leatherface against hipsters. The involvement of producer and co-writer Fede Álvarez (the Evil Dead remake) is compelling as well.
Uncharted (February 18)
With Tom Holland as a young adventurer on the trail for lost riches, the popular PlayStation franchise makes its way to the big screen. We’re hoping it’s the next Indiana Jones. We’re afraid it’ll be the next Super Mario Bros.
The Devil’s Light (February 25)
A young nun believes she’s been chosen by God to perform exorcisms, despite the fact that the Church does not permit women to do so. Can she succeed when a demon with a particularly vicious personal grudge appears on the scene? Daniel Stamm (The Last Exorcism) helms, and Virginia Madsen (who starred in the original Candyman) co-stars.
Studio 666 (February 25)
The Foo Fighters star in this horror film, which follows the band as they set up shop in a haunted house to record their newest album.
