There are so many sub-genres in horror. The vampire movie, zombie apocalypses, torture porn. But there's nothing more classic and purely fright-inducing than the things that go bump in the night. To celebrate this week's release of The Invoking, we bring you our Top 13 Favorite Haunted House Movies.
Is anything creepier than when your own house turns against you? You can (theoretically) get away from zombies, vamps, slashers and werewolves. But when your own home sweet home is the enemy… it's tough to recover from that.
We have some great Honorable Mentions to start off with. Fantastic director James Wan really seems to have a knack for the haunted house movie as he has one entry on the list itself and also gets a nod for Insidious, a creative look at the inner, an outer, workings of a haunted house. A Haunting in Connecticut was impressive as, in addition to the actual haunting going on, »

• Tom Hiddleston (Thor: The Dark World) is attached to star in High-Rise, an adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s 1975 novel about a luxury residential unit. Hiddleston would play Robert Laing, a doctor who loves the idea of the tower, becomes obsessed with the architect, and gets embroiled in the complex mess surrounding the building. In the book, the building isolates the residents from the outside world and societal niceties soon devolve as residents segregate themselves by class and eventually regress to a primitive hunter/gatherer culture.

Out of all the young actresses currently working in Hollywood, Emma Watson has got to be one of the most interesting and exciting. Having grown and matured significantly from her Harry Potter days, Watson has been on a hot streak lately, choosing excellent films that act as a showcase for her undeniable talent in front of the camera. Perhaps more so than even Daniel Radcliffe, she’s shown that she can do more than just wave a wand and chant spells.
Next month we’ll be seeing the actress in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah and now, she has picked her next project. Watson will be starring in Alejandro Amenábar’s thriller Regression for The Weinstein Company, which already has Ethan Hawke singed on.
With a script penned by the director himself, story details for Regression are being kept under wraps. Still, the involvement of this trio of talent is alone »

I still haven't seen Gerardo Naranjo's Miss Bala, which I realize is a gaping hole in my list of "have watched", but I'm sure I'll catch it at some point, though hopefully before his next film, which he's just lined up with Dakota Fanning set to star along with Frank Dillane, Jeremy Allen White and X-Men: First Class co-stars Zoe Kravitz and Caleb Landry Jones. The film doesn't yet have a title, but the story follows Viena (Fanning), a roadie on a journey of self-discovery while on tour with a punk band in the 1980s. Production is set to begin in Nevada in late March. In other casting news, Alejandro Amenabar (The Others, The Sea Inside) is finally getting back to work after the lackluster response to his 2009 feature Agora. His next film is titled Regression and Dimension Films has already picked it up for distribution and Emma Watson »

Emma Watson hasn't rushed into making any really big moves post-"Harry Potter," instead seemingly careful in considering each choice. Indeed, she's mostly decided to go in for supporting roles or for very tiny turns in stuff varying from "My Week With Marilyn" or even "The Bling Ring," to a great performance in "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower" and a memorable cameo in "This Is The End." This spring she'll have a bigger part in the water-ready "Noah," and it seems Watson is sticking with auteurs for the moment. Having already notched Sofia Coppola and Darren Aronofsky on her belt, Watson has now joined "The Others" and "Open Your Eyes" director Alejandro Amenábar's upcoming thriller "Regression." All we know so far is that she'll co-star with Ethan Hawke, and The Weinstein Company's offshoot label Dimension will release it in 2015, which suggests something strictly in the genre vein. Indeed »

It's been four years since we've had a new film from director Alejandro Amenábar, and before Agora, the last film he directed was The Sea Inside in 2004. Now the filmmaker is coming back with a new thriller called Regression at The Weinstein Company, and they've just announced that Emma Watson (Harry Potter, The Bling Ring) will lead the film, and she'll be joined by Before Midnight and The Purge star Ethan Hawke. The film is set for release sometime in 2015 by TWC-Dimension, but the storyline is being kept under wraps at this time, though we at least know Amenábar wrote the screenplay himself. Read on! This isn't the first time Amenábar has hit Dimension with a genre film since he also directed The Others in 2001, and that became a pretty decent horror hit. With the standard publicity fluff, the director says, "Emma is a beautiful, humane, sensitive and very talented woman, »

We’ve got a couple of casting stories to address today. First up, it was announced that Ewan McGregor will lead the cast of writer/director Rodrigo Garcia’s (Albert Nobbs) new drama Last Days in the Desert. McGregor will be joined by Ciaran Hinds (Harry Potter), Ayelet Zurer (Man of Steel), and the young Tye Sheridan (Mud) in the pic, which follows a holy man and a demon on a journey through the desert.
