For years, fans have been clamoring for the planned spinoffs of blockbuster horror franchises such as James Wan and Leigh Whannell’s "Saw," Victor Salva’s "Jeepers Creepers," and Don Mancini’s "Chucky," of his Child’s Play series. Luckily, the long wait is finally over as two of the franchises are set to release their respective spin-offs in time for Halloween 2017.

Halloween is indeed a great time to binge for horror movies. So, let’s delve deeper into the upcoming spinoffs of some horror franchises that have haunted a lot of fans for years and will be haunting them again soon.

'Jeepers Creepers' 3

Apart from "Annabelle: Creation" and Stephen King’s "It," horror fanatics will surely be delighted over the upcoming releases of highly anticipated horror flicks, "Jeepers Creepers 3," "Saw 8: Jigsaw," and "Cult Of Chucky."

Even though the release date for the third installment of Jeepers Creepers has yet to be announced, the spinoff will reportedly focus on present-day Trish Jenner (Gina Philips) as she joins the Taggarts from the previous sequel to kill the winged mythical corn field creature called "The Creeper, "who is notorious for his 23-day hunting and feeding frenzy.

Rumors have it that the storyline for Salva’s "Jeepers Creepers 3" will fall between the events of its two predecessors. The upcoming spin-off, which will follow a group of hunters led by Meg Foster, will take place after the first movie but before the events of its second installment.

'Cult of Chucky'

The seventh installment of Don Mancini’s Child’s Play franchise titled, "Cult of Chucky," will be interesting as it brings the element of craziness into the sequel.

The sequel’s plot follows Nica Pierce’s asylum confinement and the series of gory deaths in the asylum.

For the cast of the upcoming sequel, Brad Dourif is reprising his role as Chucky while his daughter Fiona will play the role of Nica Pierce. Jennifer Tilly is also making a comeback as Chucky’s bride Tiffany, as well as Summer H. Howell and Alex Vincent of "Child’s Play."

Also joining the ensemble of the cast are Grace Lynn Kung, Zak Santiago and Michael Therriault while Don Mancini remains the sequel’s writer and director.

Despite the rumors that the seventh Chucky installment is a remake, it's not. Instead, it answers the cliffhanging mysteries from the three previous films.

As for its release date, "Cult of Chucky" (unrated version) will be released on Oct. 3 on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital HD in the U.S. only.

'Saw 8: Jigsaw'

After six long years, the eighth installment of "Saw" is finally coming out this year. Saw, the brainchild of "The Conjuring” director James Wan and “Insidious” creator Leigh Whannell, was hailed as the “Most Successful Horror Franchise” that grossed more than $800 million.

Currently in post-production, the upcoming psychological horror film sequel "Saw 8: Jigsaw" will follow a murder investigation after victims are brutally killed around the city.

What’s really mind-boggling is that the evidence hints the ruthless deeds of serial killer John Kramer aka Jigsaw, who has been dead for 10 years.

Directed by Peter and Michael Spierig, the highly anticipated "Saw" spinoff also features Tobin Bell as he reprises his role as Jigsaw. Other casts include James Gomez, Michael Boisvert, Shaquan Lewis, Josiah Black, Hannah Emily Anderson, Matt Passmore, Mandela Van Peebles, Laura Vandervoort, Brittany Allen and Callum Keith Rennie.

"Saw 8: Jigsaw" will hit the theaters in the U.S. on Oct. 27. But for fans in the U.K., the spinoff will premiere on Oct.

20.
