The Amityville Horror (2005)
The most recent is Amityville: The Awakening, shot in 2014 and released straight-to-video last week – our review here. Next up though we’ve got The Amityville Murders: A Haunting on Long Island, and courtesy of Bloody Disgusting, we now have a sneak peek of what’s coming.
The genesis of the series was the experiences of the Lutz family, who moved into a haunted house and experienced all manner of ghostly happenings. The previous occupiers of the house were the DeFeos, who met a grisly end at the hand of patriarch Ronald DeFeo Jr. One misty night, he
“The writing of (‘Get Out’) started with me starting to make my favorite horror-thriller that’s never been made before,” Peele said Wednesday during a keynote conversation at Variety‘s Inclusion Summit. “Halfway through writing the project is when I realized what it was actually about.”
Moderated by Variety chief film critic Peter Debruge, the conversation focused on how Peele approached the making of his first feature film. Before “Get Out,” Peele was known as a comic, a sketch artist from his time on Comedy Central’s “Key and Peele.”
Peele said he wanted to make a film for black audiences, who gravitate toward horror films but often are frustrated with unrealistic decisions made by lead characters. Using “The Amityville Horror” as an example, Peele said the
Amityville: The Awakening has a pretty great cast for a horror sequel. Bella Thorne, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jennifer Morrison, and Cameron Monaghan headline the thriller. It was directed by Franck Khalfoun from his own screenplay and produced by TWC's Dimension alongside Blumhouse, who seldom experience this kind of flop, and have two of the most profitable
The video essay from CineFix explores three different ways “The Amityville Horror” has been told: the original novel by Jay Johnson, the 1979 film adaptation starring James Brolin, and the 2005 film starring Ryan Reynolds.

While the slasher movies we've all come to know and love are classics for a reason (see: Halloween, I Know What You Did Last Summer or Scream), it’s fun to dive a little deeper into the realm of obscure horror, where some of the truly great fright flicks hide in the shadows.
Check out Et’s suggestions for some of the great lesser-known gems of spooky cinema with this year's alternative Halloween viewing guide:
Typical Fare: Bram Stoker's Dracula, The Lost Boys, From Dusk Till Dawn

This thoughtful Swedish horror tale, directed by Tomas Alfredson, is an entirely unique take on the well-trod territory of vampire
Bella Thorne, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jennifer Morrison, and Cameron Monaghan star in “Amityville: The Awakening,” which was directed by Franck Khalfoun from his own script. It’s produced by TWC’s Dimension and Blumhouse.
The original 1979 movie “The Amityville Horror” is based on the 1974 events at a rural house in Amityville, N.Y., which became the site of one of the deadliest hauntings and grisliest murders in American history when Ronald DeFeo Jr. shot all six members of his family. Jay Anson’s book “The Amityville Horror” detailed a family moving into the house in 1975 and leaving a week later due to paranormal activity.
The book was adapted in 1979 by American Independent Pictures and became a hit, grossing $86 million. MGM’s 2005 version earned $108 million worldwide. In “[link
Bella Thorne stars as Belle Walker, a damn-the-world transplant now inhabiting the famed Amityville manor where Ronnie DeFeo Jr. murdered his family – but she doesn’t know it. Mother Joan (Jennifer Jason Leigh) claims she scored a killer deal on a
Here’s a look at an assortment of 31 films from Hulu that I think would be great movies to stream this October. I tried to give you guys a wide variety, too, hitting various sub-genres, so hopefully there’s a little bit of something for everyone in this list.
As far as high school horror films go, The Faculty has remained one of my very favorites for years now. Essentially, it’s Robert Rodriguez riffing on The X-Files, and who can resist that?
How do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks? Two FBI agents (Jonathan Groff & Holt McCallany) set out on a sinister investigative odyssey to discover the brutal answers in Mindhunter
The series is directed by David Fincher (Gone Girl, Zodiac), Asif Kapadia (Amy, Senna), Tobias Lindholm (A War, A Hijacking) and Andrew Douglas (The Amityville Horror, U Want Me 2 Kill Him?). Fincher, Joshua Donen (Gone Girl, The Quick and the Dead), Charlize Theron (Girlboss, Hatfields & McCoys) and Cean Chaffin (Gone Girl, Fight Club) are Executive Producers. The show also stars Anna Torv (Fringe) and Hannah Gross (Unless).
Mindhunter launches globally October 13th on Netflix.
Thankfully, things began to shift in our favor, first with an international release, and then with the knowledge that the much anticipated horror flick will be made available for a limited time via Google Play starting on October 12. Upon hearing that, we decided to file that tidbit under “better than nothing.”

“Nothing is ever enough – I couldn’t create if it was!” You have to admire writer-director Darren Aronofsky’s almost religious devotion to the parable-like possibilities of hyperventilating, surrealist cinema. Having caught critics’ attention with the cult low-budget sci-fi oddity Pi and proved his gritty mettle with Requiem for a Dream, Aronofsky gave us time-straddling cosmic madness in The Fountain, combined ballet with metamorphic fantasy in Black Swan, and conjured gigantic rock-monsters in the quasi-biblical babble-fest Noah. Now with Mother!, a paranoid nightmare that starts out like Polanski’s Repulsion and winds up closer to Apocalypse Now, he has stretched the envelope of outrageous mainstream cinema to breaking point – and beyond.
We start and end in flames, with an image of a fiery face giving way to a mysterious crystal, which
It will easily outpace this year’s two best, the microbudget Blumhouse films “Get Out” ($175 million) and “Split” ($138 million). And the first weekend already has surpassed “Annabelle: Creation” ($96 million) or a domestic disappointment like the Tom Cruise’s “The Mummy” ($80 million).
Horror can cover a lot of territory, so exact definitions can be a challenge. But it looks like “It” will join a list of the 10 biggest ever in domestic ticket sales (as calculated by adjusting ticket prices).

House on Elm Lake opens with a terrified mother and young son bound and gagged while their knife-wielding patriarch paces and rants. The terror and confusion beams across loud and clear. Whatever is wrong with the husband, no amount of pleading from his wife or his child will change their fate. The scene is tense, the scene is harrowing, and because this is a horror movie, the scene is full of stabbing. Cut to years later and a new family, Haley, Eric, and their daughter Penny, movie into the quaint, lakeside home.
What the script lacks in originality, it certainly makes up for in competent scares. The haunted house genre may be well-worn territory, but it’s been a horror staple over several decades for a good reason.
The franchise has some stiff competition, including the “Paranormal Activity” films ($401.4 million) and
“It was one of the happiest moments of my life, that’s for sure,” recalls Moretz, 20, on a recent afternoon, sitting with her two-month-old pug, Ruby. The actress had such a plum spot at the DNC because organizers were hoping she’d reach first-time millennial voters.
Moretz has something in common with her multitasking generation: She knows what it’s like to burn out as a teenager. After appearing in dozens of movies since she was a pint-size kid, Moretz realized at 18 that she needed a yearlong break. She left her home in Los Angeles for a solitary vacation in Tulum, Mexico, embarked on a few road trips, dated and spent time with her friends — a
While it’s always tough to suffer the loss of a beloved animal, the sadness and nostalgia attached to a childhood pet can be even harder to bear.
“Rest In Peace my dear dear Fuller,” Moretz wrote. “I love you more than you know. You’ve been my protector and best friend since I was a little girl and I wish the end didn
