Horror can go deeper than just guts and gore. The best upcoming intelligent horror films of 2019 keep you thinking about the movie long after you've seen the end. Smart scary movies are different than your thoughtless run-of-the-mill horror films. They can be so intelligent that it's terrifying in a whole different way. Classic intelligent horror films range from The Silence of the Lambs to newer horror movies such as Get Out. 2019 has a lot to offer when it comes to smart new horror thrillers that will keep you on the edge of your seat and keep the intellectual viewer stimulated to the last scene, like Jordan Peele's Us and Velvet Buzzsaw starring Jake Gyllenhaal. The Hole in the Ground is also a promising debut film from director Lee Cronin.

Be sure to keep checking the list below for interesting horror movies coming out this year like Escape Room and Us. These are horror movies with smart characters that offer a far more engaging story than other mindless slasher flicks.
