Barring you've been living under a rock for the past year, then you know the great amount of delectable horror films we are going to receive in 2016. The first comes out, why, today in fact! The Boy is a paranormal film about a haunted doll, not unlike Annabelle. Unlike Annabelle, this story isn't based on any true events, so they can make some truly terrifying acts without stretching the truth too much.
Come early February we get Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, based off a novel I didn't particularly enjoy. Hopefully, an adaptation to the silver screen will liven things up, as the book was as dead as half of the characters by the end. I'll see it as I see almost anything coming from the horror genre, but I have my doubts...
Finally, in the early summer, we have a confirmed sighting of a film that will no doubt turn heads. The Conjuring Two will hit theaters in June and will tell of another escapade the Warren duo investigated during their time as ghost chasers. The first one was great and this one will be too as James Wan is at the helm once more.
This should be enough to keep us well stocked for a bit, at least until the smaller projects surface and are revealed to us in their profane glory. Another Exorcism movie (that isn't just blatant proselytizing) would be nice, and I could go for a good ghost story with a new cast of characters. I guess I'm just a glutton for punishment...
The streets of London are rather beautiful at night, Mary Anne mused as she strolled down the darkened alley. The entire city was awash in the light of a full moon hanging low in a cloudless sky, a dull autumn chill sweeping through the neighborhoods and boroughs just enough for everyone to begin to dress warmly and begin drinking hot cider in the evening with their mead. Even the lowliest street urchins were in a chipper mood by the change in weather, and a festive cheer seemed to pervade the city.
An interesting take on ghosts in this short British horror flick. They have a vengeful spirit after a girl that just moved to a new apartment, and it has very little build-up. Just a bit of character development and bam! ghost in your face!
Previous Sipping his coffee while eating his third donut, Samuel relaxed back in his chair as he watched the teenage girl continually check her phone for the time. She clearly had plans to show him around campus before school, and a passive scan of her mind said she wanted to have him join some of the student organizations as she’d taken a peek at his older records and noted his high grades and standardized test scores.
Some of the most iconic horror movies today stem from one man and one man alone. And no, this one man does not happen to be Stephen King, surprisingly. No, this man is James Wan, the writer, and director of Saw, The Conjuring and Insidious: Chapter Two, to name a few projects he’s touched.
