Demon this. Possession that. Even the devil is overstaying his welcome at the box office lately. Maybe that's why Lionsgate has decided to hold back its latest evil-laden film, The Vatican Tapes, until February 27, 2015.
The Vatican Tapes follows the haunting tale of 27-year-old Angela Holmes, who accidentally cuts her finger and ends up in the emergency room. Infection leads to erratic behavior, and she begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close, causing serious injury and death. Priests examine Holmes and believe she is possessed, but when The Vatican is called upon to exorcise the demon, the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than they imagined.

The directors of Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance have joked that they want their movie to be erased by the time-travelling X-Men.
X-Men: Days of Future Past sees Wolverine head back in time to change the history of the mutant race.
Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, who directed the Ghost Rider sequel, tweeted from their joint account, saying: "vaughn xmen change the future to eradicate ratner universe, could they eradicate all ghost rider universes while they're at it?"

Not even Neil Patrick Harris's comically camp performance (or his pooing twice inside a hat) could salvage the film, which was summed up by Digital Spy as "a giant tumbleweed of a comedy drifting aimlessly through a laugh-free desert".
1. Jonah Hex (2010)
This fantasy Western blockbuster derived from a DC Comics character fell flat on its (criminally disfigured) face upon its release, making a measly $10 million at the box office before sinking without trace. Despite Josh Brolin's best efforts as the lead and Michael Fassbender's brilliantly terrifying bowler-hat-wearing brute Burke, the movie was criticised for being edited within an inch of its short life, so »

We take a look back at the geek movies that have hinted at sequels that were never made, and we'd really like to see...
Nb: The following contains inevitable spoilers. If you haven't seen a film in a particular entry, feel free to skip to the next one.
In some cases, it comes as a relief when a threatened sequel fails to materialise. The end of the infamous Mac And Me, for example, sees its family of cretinous aliens drive off in a pink Cadillac, a speech bubble chillingly telling us, "We'll be back!" Thankfully, Mac And Me 2 has yet to materialise, despite the original film's near-legendary status.
Every so often, though, we'll come across a movie that strongly hints at more adventures to come, but for a variety of reasons - usually financial ones - the sequel never got made. To illustrate this, »
Good day, dwellers of the devil.s basement. Are you guys ready for Devil.s Due coming out later this week? Yeah, me either. Fortunately there are much more interesting and original films hitting theaters and VOD sites over the next few months. And two of them include Dan Fogler and an evil clown, which were formerly assumed to be the same thing. There's another found footage movie coming out this year, Mark Neveldine's The Vatican Tapes, which will center on a leaked video of an exorcism that goes extremely wrong. While these kinds of films usually rely on practical sound effects and deep booming noises for their soundscape, The Vatican Tapes will receive a score composed by bonkers musician Mike Patton, lead singer of Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, and about a dozen other side projects. That fact alone has me 20% more excited about this movie than I »
More normally found putting words in the mouths of Vin Diesel and Ludacris for the Fast & Furious films, writer Chris Morgan also dabbles in the horror genre, having written the story for upcoming Neveldine/Taylor thriller The Vatican Tapes. But for The Wolf’s Hour, based on the book by Robert McCammon, he’s sticking to producing duty.The actual legwork (finger-work?) script-wise is being shouldered by Bradley and Kevin Marcus, who took a shot and optioned McCammon’s 1989 book themselves. They wrote a screenplay and got the attention of Morgan’s production company, which in turn led to a deal with Universal.You can see why the studio might be interested – The Wolf’s Hour is a pulpy blend of World War II adventure and werewolf tale, which finds a man recruited by the Allies to stop a Nazi poison gas plot. He’s signed up because his wolfy abilities give him extra speed, »
