Januaryween: The Curious Young Tradition of Starting the Year with Bad Horror

8 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In the first week in January, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death made a respectable $15.8m at the box office, and is now quietly fading from our collective memories forever. Thus, another year of proud cinematic tradition is complete. Seriously, that’s actually a tradition. Each January, on the first box-office weekend of the year, comes a new horror movie. More often than not, that film is extremely cruddy (“extremely cruddy” being extremely generous, “hated by every single person who saw it”  might be more accurate). And it’s usually the only new film to hit theaters that weekend — the only competition coming from the last holdovers of Christmas prestige season. It’s not the most cherished tradition, but it’s tradition nonetheless. And it’s a phenomenon that really doesn’t get the attention it deserves. Just why, exactly, has January become a low quality micro-Halloween? Let’s find out. First »
