After 20th Century Fox's The Martian took home the box office crown yet again last weekend, many were wondering if that feat could be repeated for a third consecutive time. The sci-fi drama will face its toughest challenge yet, with three new releases hitting theaters on October 16, Sony's Goosebumps, Universal's Crimson Peak and DreamWorks' Bridge of Spies. The Martian only dropped 31.9% from its opening frame last weekend, and if it can pull off a similar decrease, it may end up on top for a third time in a row, but the projections from BoxOffice.com put Goosebumps as the winner with $24 million.
Goosebumps stars Jack Black as beloved author R.L. Stine, whose world is upended when a new neighbor moves into town. Upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. »

We've all talked to our TV screens, but what if they talked back?
That's the question alarmingly raised in this clip from "Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension," debuting exclusively on Moviefone. In the preview, brothers Ryan (Chris J. Murray) and Mike (Dan Gill) watch a 20-year-old video tape they found in the basement of Ryan's new home. In it, two girls -- Kristi and Katie (remember them from "Paranormal Activity 3"?) -- are seen being induced into a trance-like state, with the goal of making contact with the other side. But, as it turns out, "the other side" is the here and now. Pretty freaky.
"Ghost Dimension" marks the fifth -- and final -- installment of the "Paranormal Activity" franchise, and ties together elements of the first four movies, while serving up a whole new chapter.

Are you ready for Halloween? Even if you think you don’t like horror movies, you’ll find a scary flick to get you prepped for the big night among October’s offerings. No less than five frightful films will be released before All Hallows’ Eve and they’re all very different. In case you have time to see just one, we’ve put together this handy guide.
I like my horror: As realistic as possible
I’m hoping to: Have a heart attack
Remember the first Paranormal Activity movie — the groundbreaking found-footage horror that was made, independently, for just $15,000 (U.S.) but ended up taking in nearly $200-million at the box office?
That movie left audiences quaking, but with so »

From Blumhouse Productions, the company that brought us Insidious and Paranormal Activity, comes The Lazarus Effect, but if you’re looking for another poop-your-pants scare then you’re all out of luck with this one, I’m afraid.
Duplass and Wilde star as Frank and Zoe, two top scientists in love. With the help of their team – Clay (Peters), Niko (Glover) and camera-girl Eva (Bolger) – Frank and Zoe work on a serum that’s designed to prolong the life of terminally ill patients, long enough that doctors are able to carry out final end-of-life preparations. By testing it on a deceased dog they find that it works, but with little Rocky acting up (aggression, super strength, disinterested in food) it seems that not everything is right in the world of the undead. »

Leigh Whannell has become an important name in the horror circle over the last decade or so, and has brought us all manor of modern day horror institutions. Alongside longtime friend James Wan, Whannell created both the Saw and Insidious franchises. A jack of all trades Whannell writes, produces, acts and most recently started directing. With such a wide range of skills he is of course highly in demand so we count ourselves very lucky to have been able to speak with him not once, but twice this year.
Back in summer we sat down in London with Leigh to talk all about his first venture into directing on Insidious 3 (click here for the video) and now recently we got him on the phone to talk about his latest project Cooties.
Cooties is played for laughs and is a very enjoyable black comedy. Whannell helped write the script for »

“Sitting through this movie,” wrote Slant Magazine’s critic of Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, “one is driven to respect not the artistry of the filmmakers, as there’s precious little of that on display, but the ingenuity and shamelessness of the businessmen who’ve coerced a significant amount of ticket buyers into plopping down their money.”
Part sequel, part spin-off, but mostly more of the same, The Marked Ones was another reminder of what happens when a franchise goes on too long and filmmakers attempt to squeeze nickels and dimes out of the same premise for the fifth time. By this point, the returns hadn’t just diminished, they were looking decidedly decrepit.
That said, The Marked Ones stacks up well against the fifth entries in the Howling, Hellraiser and Halloween franchises, and you’d definitely give it a day in court over Friday The 13th Part V: A New Beginning. »

The main complaint with the Paranormal Activity franchise is that it played things far too close to its chest in terms of what was actually going on. There is actually a very mythology built into the series, but you wouldn’t really know considering how the information is drip fed to the audience. Well, with the last installment, The Ghost Dimension, get ready for all you answers to be questioned and the spooky goings on to be laid bare, as this latest feature promises just that. Check it out below. Released: October 23rd (U.S.)/ October 30th (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension centers on the Fleeges — father Ryan (Chris J. Murray), mother Emily (Brit Shaw) and their young daughter Leila (Ivy George) — who move into a house and discover a video camera and a box of tapes in the garage. When they look through the camera’s lens, »

Later this month, the low-budget horror franchise that spawned countless imitators finally draws to a close with Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension. The final chapter follows the trademark found footage pattern laid out by its predecessors, but in addition to chills and scares, it promises something that fans haven.t got from the films before, answers, and new international trailer is here to give you a new look. If you.ve ever encountered one of Blumhouse Productions. Paranormal Activity movies before, you generally know what you.re going to get, and this trailer doesn.t offer much in the way of surprises. You.ve got spooky kids doing spooky things, a framework that sets up why this is all being filmed, grainy footage, odd shapes in the background that you.re not sure what they are, sudden movements, and all the usual hallmarks. That said, these movies have proven successful »
The Paranormal Activity franchise has been known in the past for traipsing back in time to explore earlier encounters with the demonic entity that plagued two hapless humans in the original film. For what is planned as the final entry (at least for now), technology helps the story peek all the way back to the beginning. Check out the latest trailer for Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension. The family enduring the scares this time are Ryan, Emily, their daughter Leila, and Ryan's younger brother Mike. Another daughter has died a year previous to the film, which will almost certainly tie into events here. The location is Palo Alto, where the clan has just moved from New York, so that video game designer Ryan can start his new job. Emily, meanwhile, is an Earth mother type who does yoga, while Leila is described as a tomboyish combination of her big-kid dad and more mature mom… »
Paranormal Activity certainly wasn’t the first found-footage movie, but it’s a huge part of the reason why the format has become so ubiquitous. These films are cheap to make, since they actually benefit from avoiding cutting-edge technology and big-name actors. And because they’re so cheap that even a modest success will turn a big profit, while even the worst flops are barely […]

This is the end, my only friend, the end. After 5 canonical motion pictures, umpteen nightmares and a box office haul to the tune of $800 million, Blumhouse’s micro-budget horror series will bow out this fall with Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, and today brings a new trailer and pair of clips in anticipation of the franchise’s curtain call.
Helmed by Gregory Plotkin, the ultimate chapter will tread overly familiar ground in terms of story, having a family unearth a dark and foreboding secret within the four walls of their home. In this instance, it’s a large, unwieldy camera that acts as the film’s Macguffin, harboring the power to peer behind the veil into the titular alternate reality. What do they see? Nothing good, judging by today’s new promos.
Retaining the found footage tenet that has served as the spin of the Paranormal Activity horror series, The »
