10 Terrifying Horror Films That Will Haunt Your 2015

22 December 2014 10:17 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

We’ve barely passed through 2014 and it’s already time to start looking ahead to the New Year, and all the ways we’re going to be crapping our pants in 2015. These past twelve months have been pretty great for horror films, with Ti West continuing to deliver on his early promise with Jonestown thriller The Sacrament and The Babadook…just, The Babadook.

The next twelve months look to be just as rewarding, as amongst the usual endless churn of remakes, reboots and sequels, there’s plenty of devilish diamonds in the rough to savour. Some of those remakes, reboots and sequels look like they might be all right and all, to be fair, but y’know. That’s not what you’re really after.

They’re anithetical to scaring audiences, in a way, since it’s the unexpected, the unusual that’s truly terrifying. By the time you’re getting to your second Sinister, »

Bj Colangelo’s Top 15 Horror Movies of 2014

18 December 2014 7:32 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

We’re only half a month away from 2015, and it’s time to look back on the year, jump on our soap boxes, and crank out our “Best of the Year” lists.  2014 may have been a weak year for theatrical horror films, but the independent circuit was booming. I saw films in 2014 that have become lifetime favorites, and had some of the most fun watching films that I’ve had in a long time.  As always, this is my *~*~opinion*~* on the fifteen best horror films of 2014.

Honorable Mentions: The Purge: Anarchy, The Cemetery, Oculus, and Life After Beth.

15) Nightbreed: Director’S Cut

Admittedly, this is sort of a cheat.  If you follow me on twitter or Instagram, you’d know that thanks to my wonderful man-candy, my house is a proverbial shrine to Clive Barker’s Nightbreed.  Foreign posters, original artwork, old theatre advertisements, figurines, the film on »

Syfy has brought aboard Julian McMahon for the upcoming six-hour “Childhood’s End” miniseries, which is slated to premiere in 2015.

The “Nip/Tuck” actor will star opposite Daisy Betts (“Shutter”), the cabler announced Wednesday.

McMahon and Betts join previously announced cast members Vogel, Ashley Zukerman, Charles Dance, Osy Ikhile and Yael Stone.

You're Killing Me: 8 lessons from horror's (mostly) horrible 2014

14 December 2014 9:31 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With a slew of major commercial (and often critical) hits like "The Conjuring," "Insidious: Chapter 2," "World War Z," "Warm Bodies" and the terrific "Evil Dead" remake, 2013 was a great year for horror. 2014? Eeh...let's just say the business of fright was a little weak. And it wasn't just the numbers, which were bad enough - only 4 horror films broke $50 million domestic this year as compared with last year's 9 - but the quality of the films themselves that disappointed. If we're being honest, the number of truly worthwhile mainstream horror films this year can probably be counted on one hand. So what did we learn from horror's (mostly) horrible 2014? Below are 8 lessons we'll be taking away. Lesson #1: Even in a down year, horror remains the most consistently profitable genre Judging strictly by budget-to-worldwide gross ratio, the only true flop this year was the bloated Aaron Eckhart reboot "I, Frankenstein, »

50 Most Anticipated Movies Of 2015 – Ranked

13 December 2014 4:54 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lucasfilm

2014 is quickly drawing to a close, and though it’s been quite the year for movies, be it art-house smashes (Boyhood, Birdman and Whiplash) or scintillating blockbusters (The Lego Movie, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Guardians of the Galaxy), 2015 looks to completely outfox in every way. As the slate for next year’s cinematic buffet has been assembled over the past 12 months, it’s become clear that 2015 is looking to serve up possibly the most epic, jam-packed, fanboy-friendly year of movies that has ever been.

With so many new chapters in classic franchises, long-awaited sequels and even a few enticing original projects, no year in movies has been as outwardly promising as this, and if even just half the films on this list deliver on their lofty promises, then its going to be a 12 months for the history books. These 50 movies, from dramas that probably aren »

10 December 2014 6:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New Line has set high school horror film “Gallows” — formerly titled “Superstition” — for a July 10 release.

As for Blum, he’s been behind an array of highly profitable horror franchises: “Paranormal Activity,” “Insidious,” “Sinister” and “The Purge.”

William Friedkin on why he is beating the drum for 'The Babadook'

9 December 2014 1:12 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For a first time director to attract the attention of an icon of cinema is a heady experience. So imagine the feelings of Jennifer Kent, the Australian director of the new low budget, independent horror film The Babadook, when she saw this tweet from none other than William Friedkin, director of The Exorcist himself: I've never seen a more terrifying film than The Babadook. It will scare the hell out of you as it did me. — William Friedkin (@WilliamFriedkin) December 1, 2014 Since that first tweet, Friedkin has made beating the drums for The Babadook something of a personal cause celebre, continuing to champion it online and introducing a midnight screening last weekend at La’s Vista Theater. We spoke with William Friedkin by phone to find out how this little film had captured his attention. Hitfix: How did you discover The Babadook?

4 December 2014 11:32 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — “Nightcrawler,” the subversive, L.A.-set crime thriller that has earned its first-time director Dan Gilroy and star Jake Gyllenhaal some Oscar buzz, has achieved a strong start in France.

Nightcrawler” marks the first acquisition of Paris-based Selective Films, the outfit launched by former Wild Bunch Distribution Jean-Philippe Tirel and his partner, the producer Maya Hariri (“Under the Bombs”).

Selective co-acquired the movie at script stage last year with its partner Orange Studios and got Paramount France on board to distribute it in Gaul.

Nightcrawler,” which stars Gyllenhaal as a Los Angeles denizen who takes pleasure in shooting gritty crimes to feed news networks and make ends meet, has grossed approximately $1.5 million from 187,000 admissions in France since opening Nov. 26 on 255 screens.

Compared with other Nov. 26 releases, the pic — titled “Night Call” in France — ranks second behind the franchise-based toon feature “Asterix, The Mansions of the God.” It beat out Michel Hazanavicius’ “The Search, »

Paranormal Activity 5: The Ghost Dimension to be released in 3D

28 November 2014 3:45 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Paranormal Activity 5: The Ghost Dimension will be released in 3D.

Gregory Plotkin's horror sequel will be released in cinemas on March 13, 2015.

Katie Featherston and Tyler Craig will star in the film, which is based on a screenplay by Jason Pagan and Andrew Stark.

The Ghost Dimension will focus on a new family being haunted by a supernatural entity, with the plot expected to tie in to recent spin-off The Marked Ones.

Bloody Disgusting has suggested that the use of 3D will be used to differentiate between dimensions.

Earlier this year, the makers of Paranormal Activity revealed that they have a conclusion planned for the series.

"It was really when we were making the third film that things started to crystallise," Christopher Landon said.

"I had an endgame in mind which I had pitched to the group and they loved it. We've been working toward getting to this finish line. »

'Paranormal Activity 5' Will Get a 3D Release

27 November 2014 8:10 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension is going where no other Paranormal Activity movie has gone before: Into the Third Dimension. Yes, it has been confirmed that Paramount Pictures is planning to release the fifth chapter in their popular horror franchise in 3D. This will be the first Paranormal Activity movie released in 3D. It also holds the distinction of being one of the first found footage movies shot in the immersive format.

Can a Paranormal Activity IMAX release be far behind? We're not sure at this point, but Bloody Disgusting confirms that when Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension hits theaters this March, we will be required to wear those cumbersome glasses. This may sound odd, as the found footage genre doesn't necessarily seem like a good fit for 3D. But it is being speculated that the 3D is being brought in specifically for use in the The Ghost Dimension. The »
