11 TV shows on Netflix to give you Halloween chills

29 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

In America, Halloween is a fun day, an excuse for a party and a close third behind Thanksgiving and Christmas when it comes to annual celebrations. In Britain, it's more a case of shutting your curtains and hoping that the kids down the road don't egg your windows.

But that negative approach to Halloween needs to end now. What we lack in pumpkins and parties, we can make up for with an evening of hiding under the duvet with scary TV shows.

While there might not be much actual horror programming on October 31 (although a new series of Citizen Khan on BBC One is frightening us in a different way), a quick delve into the world of Netflix (other streaming services are available, yadda, yadda) means that there are frights and thrills on tap for anyone who wants to get into the spooky spirit of things.

Here are 11 spine-chilling treats »

James Wan Directing 'The Conjuring 2'

22 October 2014 12:15 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It seems that James Wan couldn't stay away from horror for too long. The director will return to direct The Conjuring 2. The film will again be based on the true adventures of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga.

Originally, Warner Bros. gave The Conjuring sequel an October 2015 release date. But yesterday it was revealed that the studio was pushing back the film to 2016. Now we know the reason for the push: it's to give Wan time to finish and promote Fast & Furious 7.

When Wan signed up to direct Fast & Furious 7, it seemed like his horror days were behind him. But thankfully, they are not.

James Wan Returns for ‘Conjuring’ Sequel

21 October 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New Line has tapped James Wan to direct its “The Conjuring” sequel a day after announcing it is moving the project to 2016.

New Line has also signed a first-look deal with the director, which is the fourth such pact for the Warner Bros. label (The others were with Benderspink, Beau Flynn and John Rickard).

New Line scored a massive surprise hit last year with Wan directing the first supernatural thriller, which amassed about $320 million in worldwide box office on a $20 million budget. Set in Rhode Island in 1971, that story was based on the work of real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (portrayed by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga). Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor played the father and mother of the five Perron girls who were terrorized inside the haunted house.

Wan also produced “Annabelle,” a spin-off from “The Conjuring,” and directed the launch titles in the “Saw” and “Insidious” franchises. »

James Wan to Direct The Conjuring 2

21 October 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Hot on the heels of its release delay from 2015 to 2016, The Conjuring 2 now has a director, and fans of the first film will be happy to know that James Wan is returning to helm the sequel.

Deadline reports that James Wan will direct The Conjuring 2, the follow-up to his 2013 scary smash-hit, for Warner Bros. subsidiary New Line Cinema. Shooting will commence next summer. We now know that New Line’s postponement of The Conjuring 2‘s release from October 23rd, 2015 to sometime in 2016 was to give Wan space in his schedule to publicize his recently directed Fast & Furious 7, due out from Universal on April 3rd, 2015.

The director has also signed a first-look producing agreement with New Line. The deal will allow Wan to create and back science fiction, horror, and comedy films under his own Atomic Monster production label.

Release Date Change for The Conjuring 2

21 October 2014 8:39 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Though one of their case subjects, the possessed doll Annabelle, has settled into theaters, Ed and Lorraine Warren are currently in between pictures. Many fright fans have eagerly awaited the big screen return of the husband/wife paranormal investigating duo since they appeared in 2013’s The Conjuring, but now Warner Bros. has pushed back the release of the sequel to James Wan’s scary smash-hit.

According to Box Office Mojo, Warner Bros. has moved the release of The Conjuring 2 from its original October 23rd, 2015 slot to sometime in 2016. The studio was quick to fill in the vacated calendar spot, however, as they have already penciled in another horror movie for an October 23rd release, one that is unknown at this time. Warner Bros. will distribute this mystery fright flick via New Line Cinema. We’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further announcements.

'The Conjuring 2' Gets Delayed Until 2016

21 October 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

How much of a threat is Jem and the Holograms? Enough of one that Warner Bros. has decided to shuffle it's release for the highly anticipated sequel The Conjuring 2.

The Conjuring 2 was originally set to open in time for Halloween next year, arriving on October 23, 2015. Now that Jem and the Holograms is also occupying that slot, Warner Bros. has delayed their sequel to director James Wan's 2013 hit The Conjuring, moving it to an unspecified release date in 2016.

The Conjuring 2 will reportedly continue the adventures of real-life paranormal investigators Ed Warren (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) as they take on a new case. The spinoff Annabelle came out earlier this month, and while it wasn't a hit with critics it has already pulled in $37 million against a $6 million budget. There are no plans for a sequel at this moment.

Right now, The Conjuring 2 does not have a set director. »

The Conjuring 2 put back to 2016, new Warner Bros horror movie scheduled

20 October 2014 11:06 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Warner Bros has put The Conjuring 2 back to 2016 - and scheduled a mystery new horror movie for October 2015 instead...

Plans remain afoot for a sequel to James Warn's hugely successful 2013 horror movie The Conjuring. The new movie is set to pick up the story of a pair of paranormal investigators, played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga. Chad and Carey Hayes have been working on the script.

However, the plan was originally to have The Conjuring 2 in cinemas on October 23rd 2015. That plan has since changed. Warner Bros has delayed The Conjuring 2 to a so far unspecified date in 2016. Instead, on October 23rd, we're getting a thus-far unnamed horror movie from the studio instead.

We know nothing about the said horror film. It's probably too soon for it to be a sequel to the successful Conjuring spin-off film Annabelle, but stranger things have happened.

The Conjuring 2, incidentally, still doesn't have a director attached. »

"Conjuring 2" Pushed Back To 2016

20 October 2014 10:58 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

New Line has pushed back "The Conjuring" sequel. Originally slated to open on October 23rd next year, the studio has instead opted for an unspecific 2016 release.

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are returning to star in the follow-up which will explore another case of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. James Wan helmed the first film, no word as yet regarding who will helm the sequel.

The first film cost $20 million and went on to solid reviews and a $320 million worldwide gross. Three weeks back the spin-off film "Annabelle," shot for just $6 million, opened and has already amassed a worldwide total of $166 million.

New Line isn't abandoning that October 2015 date though, instead they've scheduled an untitled horror film for the slot.

'The Conjuring 2' delayed: Is James Wan's 'Fast and Furious' schedule to blame?

20 October 2014 7:52 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Conjuring 2" won't be haunting Halloween 2015 after all. The horror sequel has been booted from its October 23, 2015 release date into 2016, according to Deadline. Another as-yet-unnamed Warner Bros./New Line horror film will take up residency in that slot instead; potential contenders include "Crawlspace" starring Michael Vartan and witch-themed horror film "Superstition" from writer/directors Travis Cluff and Chris Lofing. There's still no word on whether original director James Wan will return to helm the followup, though it could be speculated that the studio pushed back the release date in order to accommodate his schedule (he's currently readying "Fast and Furious 7," which is slated to hit screens next April). Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, who starred as real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren in the first film, are slated to reprise their roles in the sequel. "The Conjuring" has proven to be big business for WB/New Line: the first »

Warner Bros. Pushes The Conjuring 2 to 2016 and Schedules Untitled Horror Film for Halloween 2015

20 October 2014 6:40 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. started developing a sequel to The Conjuring before the first movie opened.  That bet paid off when The Conjuring grossed over $300 million worldwide.  After two weeks, The Conjuring spinoff Annabelle has already reached $166 million worldwide.  The studio, who must be thrilled with the new horror franchise, had scheduled The Conjuring 2 for October 23, 2015 with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga set to return as the paranormal investigators.  However, Warner Bros. pumped the brakes a bit, delaying The Conjuring 2 to 2016. In a corresponding move, Warner Bros. scheduled a untitled horror film from New Line in its place on October 23, 2015.  Deadline speculates the unspecified project could be 1) Crawlspace, starring Michael Vartan as a widower who moves into a house troubled by "a very disturbing secret from the past" or, 2) Superstition, set at "a house that was once the site of a witch’s execution."

‘The Conjuring’ Sequel Pushed Back to 2016

20 October 2014 6:02 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New Line has moved back its “Conjuring” sequel to 2016 and replaced it with an untitled horror film for a pre-Halloween release on Oct. 23, 2015.

The Warner Bros. division had announced in February that it had dated “The Conjuring 2″ for the 2015 opening with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga returning to star. The sequel does not have a director yet and hasn’t been set for a specific release date in 2006.

New Line scored a massive surprise hit last year with James Wan’s supernatural thriller “The Conjuring,” which amassed about $320 million in worldwide box office on a $20 million budget.

New Line topper Toby Emmerich told Variety last year that “Conjuring 2” would tap a similar vein as the first film, which largely avoided conventional horror film ploy while exploring demonic possession.

Set in Rhode Island in 1971, the story is based on the work of real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren — portrayed by Wilson and Farmiga. »

Conjuring Sequel Delayed Until 2016

20 October 2014 5:26 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Following the surprise crossover mainstream success of James Wan's spooky The Conjuring, studio New Line were quick to announce both a sequel and a spin-off. The latter, Annabelle, has already arrived, but The Conjuring 2 isn't moving forward as swiftly. It's just been pulled from its previously announced release date of October 23 next year, and replaced by another as-yet unnamed New Line scarefest.Not too much is known about The Conjuring 2 so far, aside from the return of stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as paranormal investigators Ed and Elaine Warren, and that Chad and Carey Hayes are once again writing the screenplay. Rather than returning to the first film's story in some way, the sequel will simply present the Warrens with a different case. The IMDb currently gives it the subtitle The Enfield Poltergeist, suggesting a 1977 setting in the English village of Brimsdown...The reason for the delay is unclear, »

The Judge review: Robert Downey Jr coasts in muddled melodrama

17 October 2014 6:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: David Dobkin; Screenwriter: Nick Schenk, Bill Dubuque; Starring: Robert Downey Jr, Robert Duvall, Vera Farmiga, Jeremy Strong, Vincent D'Onofrio; Running time: 141 mins; Certificate: 15

Robert Downey Jr's career resurgence has been a joy to behold. Without it, we wouldn't have his wry, nuanced, endlessly charismatic Tony Stark, and without Tony Stark we wouldn't have the Marvel Cinematic Universe which has, on the whole, been nothing but good news for comic book movies and the audiences that love them. But Downey hasn't shown much range over the past five years of near-relentless Starking, and The Judge looks ostensibly like a breath of fresh air, his first "serious" role since Joe Wright's little-seen The Soloist in 2009.

But what's most disappointing about David Dobkin's drama, which weaves an engaging but hackneyed web of paternal strife and small-town crime, is just how unsurprising every moment of Downey's performance is. He plays city slicker Hank Palmer, »

The Judge movie review: you can go home again

17 October 2014 5:27 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Avoids feeling as supremely calculated as it is, perhaps because Robert Downey Jr.’s snark and Robert Duvall’s crusty pragmatism vaccinate against it. I’m “biast” (pro): love Robert Downey Jr.

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It’s kind of amazing how many classic Hollywood melodrama clichés are crammed into The Judge: father-son angst; small-town life; conundrums of American justice; there’s even baseball and pie. I’d even call it downright awards bait-y, except Robert Downey Jr.’s Oscar clip features too many fucks to work on network television. And yet, The Judge manages to avoid feeling as supremely calculated as it is, perhaps because Downey Jr.’s snark and Robert Duvall’s crusty pragmatism won’t allow it: the nearly trademarked qualities of the actors’ onscreen charisma vaccinate against it. So even as they play »
