The numbers are just to not confuse anyone (including me), hopefully you will agree with some of these flicks and I would love to know what you are looking forward to this year.
Unless it's 'Devils Due'.
That film looks terrible and I'm sick of found footage.
So lets start with......
I'm not too sure if this will be a 2014 release or a 2015 release, I've seen both dates on different websites so that's why I'm putting it at the top. The first film wasn't the best, but it was definitely a good film and has quickly become a cult classic Halloween film.
The first showed us short stories based around one town during Halloween all focused on at least one rule of Halloween.
A cute little guy named Sam, wearing a burlap sack on his head featured in each story whether in the background or as a main character.
It's going to be fun finding out what the little Pumpkin man has in store for us next time round.
Well, I have no idea if this poster above is a real poster, let alone for a real film.
Either way a teaser came out for a horror film called Squirrels.
There is an official plot though and no doubt the film will eventually exist whether it was set up as a joke or not.
The plot in basic terms is that Squirrels in a little town turn murderous because of a Gas Company somehow.
Probably the only film like this that I will enjoy.
Even though this was filmed in 2012 and according to IMDB released in Hungary in 2013, this still isn't released here in the UK yet nor in the US, and is expected to be released some time this year.
It deals with 'teens' going to an abandoned theme park in 1983 for an 'initiation ceremony', but in the park are demonic monsters, their leader, a certain GingerClown voiced by Tim Curry.
Alright, the first one wasn't the best. To be honest both Jen and I thought it to be pretty terrible.
But I quite like the poster, and it gives me hope.
The first film was all short stories being told/acted out to a young woman in an odd theatre.
Lets hope the second is better than the first.
Hammer haven't really put out a truly decent flick since their comeback.
First was 'Beyond The Rave' which was a Myspace episodic film. Then 'Let Me In', a remake of the brilliant 'Let The Right One In'. I quite enjoyed their next offering 'The Resident', in which Hilary Swank moves into a new building to find its owner (Jeffrey Dean Morgan from Supernatural and Watchmen) was quite a creep. It also had Christopher Lee in a small role.
Then came 'Wake Wood' which I haven't seen but haven't heard much good.
And finally 'The Woman In Black', which was meant to be the huge film of the new Hammer, and ended up being 'Harry Potter and the Woman In Black'.
With The Quiet Ones, I'm quite looking forward to it and think it will be the redeemer of Hammer.
Not a remake, not something completely silly, and what I believe actually original.
A University Professor believes he can actually create a poltergeist using human subjects negative emotion, he somewhat succeeds, and bad things start to happen.
I fell in love with the first Nuke 'Em High when I found it in a bargain bin multiple film DVD. I haven't even seen the sequels.
Whereas with the Toxic Avenger, I bought the DVD a few years ago and thought it was amazing, some of the sequels not so much, but I'm still looking forward to the next one, the fifth which deals with Toxies sons. Oh and Kaufman is apparently also making a remake of the first!
Another film I'm looking forward to mainly thanks to the poster.
There's a variant in same style that just has Abigail Breslin's face in black and white, there's also a ridiculously shitty poster out there too.
It's just the image of a girl spitting blood at a gun in her face that got me.
It's amazing and beautiful.
I hope the film is too.
A group of boys choose a girl to be their victim in a final initiation. They chose the wrong girl.
Not really a horror, and also again according to IMDB released in 2013, it still hasn't been released over here and also looks ace.
What started as a prank on Craigslist as someone looking for a roommate that would dress up as a Walrus, turned into a podcast by Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier who originally believed the prank to be real (among almost everyone else) and decided to create a new story around it and decided to write a screenplay based on the idea.
This became TUSK, and now Kev and Mosier have gotten in touch with the guy behind the prank and made him executive producer on the film. TUSK is about a podcaster going to interview someone and getting kidnapped and genetically turned into a Human Walrus.
Rec 1 + 2 were almost perfect films. I haven't seen the third, still..... (looking at you Jen).
I really wish I didn't have to wait for REC 4. Angela from the first two films returns and apparently so does the full on horror that the first two films relish in.
This is probably the only found footage film that is to be released that will actually be good.
But please, don't call the series 'Zombie' films. They aren't zombies at all. It becomes pretty damn clear what they are at the end of the first film, and if you still didn't pick up what they are, it certainly makes it 100% clear in the second, if you listen. Well, read.
So what do you guys think?
