New dates set for Paranormal Activity 5 and new Ring film

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

ComingSoon.net are today reporting that Paramount Pictures has re-adjusted its horror slate for 2015, with news that two of its newest entries into their scary franchises have new dates.

The latest entry into the Paranormal Activity franchise, known as Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, has been pushed back from March 13th this year to the far spookier date of October 23rd. Details are sparse on the film, but the story is reportedly set around ghostly goings-on in a house that may be linked to Katie and Tobey from Paranomal Activity 4.

The film will be up against Vin Diesel-starrer The Last Witch Hunter and Jon M. Chu’s Jem and the Holograms, an adaptation on the 1980’s cartoon.

In addition to Paranormal, Paramount is resuscitating another horror franchise in the shape of Rings, the third entry in the Ring series. The latest entry has been bumped up to November 13th »

Why the Found Footage Genre Is Broken (and How to Fix It)

6 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This week, "Project Almanac" comes out in theaters nationwide. It's the tale of a group of teenagers who stumble upon a time machine and use it for their own personal gain. It harkens back to movies like "Back to the Future," with the potential hazards of messing with the space-time continuum revealed as the movie goes along. But the movie is filmed as though it is being recorded by one of the kids, in an aesthetic commonly referred to as "found footage." That's right, it's grainy and shaky and purposefully amateurish, and while the movie mostly works, it's still not enough to make you wish the movie was photographed and edited like an actual movie.

The found footage genre, exemplified by genre exercises like the "Paranormal Activity" series, has reached an impasse. Audiences are bored with it, and there's been barely any new spin on the aesthetic since 1999's groundbreaking "The Blair Witch Project. »

Three Big Horror Flicks Get New Dates

8 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

For many years now, Hollywood has savored the merits of horror films. Cheap to make + A filmgoing public with an insatiable appetite for scares and thrills = Low Risk & High Rewards.

So when will you be able to go to a theater and experience the latest round of jump-scares and awkward crowd laughter? Read on!

A new Friday The 13th film has been kicked around for a while, with rumors of it adopting the "found footage" format. At one point it was going to come out on March 13, then that became November 13.

Film Review: ‘Project Almanac’

16 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Let’s say you discover a time machine in your basement. Would you use it to go back and stop Hitler, or would you instead make tiny jumps to tweak the quality of your own life — like taking your friends to Lollapalooza, or perfecting the all-important kiss you flubbed the first time around? For the teens in the found-footage time-travel movie “Project Almanac,” the chance to rewrite history is wasted trying to perfect their high-school experience, which naturally leads to unforeseen consequences — for them, at least, although the aftermath will be plenty familiar to butterfly-effect believers — in a film that squanders its potential.

Nearly five years after Paramount announced its Insurge initiative — a plan to generate 10 pics in the ballpark of $100,000 a year, conceived in the wake of the 2007 microbudget phenom “Paranormal Activity” — the studio has finally unveiled its first title (not counting 2012’s shoestring pickup “The Devil Inside”).

Friday The 13th, Paranormal Activity, Ring sequels dated

18 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paramount moves the release date of three of its upcoming horror films...

Earlier this week, Paramount Pictures did one lot of release date shuffling, when it brought Mission: Impossible 5 forward from December to July, and moved Monster Trucks back to the end of the year.

Now, it's delayed two of its upcoming horror films, and brought another one forward.

Let's go with the delays first.

Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension had been earmarked for a March 13th release, but the studio has now put it back to a date closer to Halloween. The next Paranormal Activity movie will now be released on October 23rd.

Originally due on November 13th of this year was the latest Friday The 13th movie. That's gone back to 2016 now. It's currently set to be released on May 13th 2016. A quick mooch at our calendar does indeed confirm this to be a Friday. Phew.

Ejecta DVD Review

23 January 2015 3:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Chad Archibald

Cast: Julian Richings, Lisa Houle, Adam Seybold, Mark Gibson, Justin Darmanin and Ry Barrett.

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 87 Minutes

With worldwide movie audiences currently tackling the issues of Back To The Future 2’s disappointingly inaccurate 2015 predictions and The Interview’s disastrous theatrical run…it seems that this year may hold few cinematic surprises in the grand scheme of things. After all, in a world overloaded with productions of every genre, this would lead many to predict that an alien-related narrative would be the last to offer anything remotely in the way of originality. However, despite the fact that some viewers may assume they have had their fair share of extra-terrestrial outings on the big and small screen, Ejecta offers genuinely intriguing material, as well as some exciting performances from some criminally unknown actors.

From the very beginning of Ejecta, it is clear that the film has taken strong »

The Last Horror Blog: 2015's Most Anticipated Horror Movies

23 January 2015 12:00 AM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Now that we’ve officially closed the book on 2014, and settled into a brand-spankin’ new year, this feels like as good a time as any to take a look at what fright-film aficionados have to look forward to in 2015. The early results look mostly promising – offering up a mixture of sequels to tried-and-true titles (Paranormal Activity, Insidious and Sinister) while seasoning with some of the indie magic that made 2014 so memorable (It Follows). If we learned anything over the course of the past 12 months, it’s that we should expect the unexpected when it comes to modern horror cinema – there’s bound to be at least one or two movies that wind up on 2015’s Year’s Best lists that no one saw coming, but if I were a gambling man...

Forecast: 'Sniper' to Easily Fight Off Weak Competition This Weekend

22 January 2015 4:03 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Three new wide releases hit theaters this weekend, though none of them have the slightest chance of taking first place away from American Sniper.Among those new releases, The Boy Next Door seems to have the edge; the Jennifer Lopez thriller should wind up in second place with at least $15 million. Meanwhile, Mortdecai and Strange Magic will likely wind up below $10 million.American Sniper opened to a stunning $89.3 million last weekend, which ranks second all-time for an R-rated movie behind The Matrix Reloaded. It has also held well through the week*its $7.55 million Wednesday haul is very impressive*which is usually a good indicator of a strong second weekend.To help meet the high demand, American Sniper is expanding to 3,705 theaters, which is the widest release ever for an R-rated movie. Based on the mid-week performance, it's likely that the movie earns at least $50 million this weekend. If it gets closer to $60 million, »

Jason Blum Bets on Latino Auds With ‘Boy Next Door’

22 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

These are tricky times for the box office, which fell by 5.2% in 2014 (its lowest attendance level in two decades), but Hispanic ticketbuyers represent a silver lining. Last year, for instance, the demo constituted approximately 22% of the opening-week audience for the summer’s biggest blockbusters. And although Hispanics embrace movies of all genres, they consistently have made microbudget thrillers a safe bet for studios.

No one is more aware of this than Jason Blum, whose franchise films continue to over-index among the demographic. Hispanics turned out in droves to see Blum’s “The Purge: Anarchy,” contributing 36% of the movie’s impressive $30 million opening (not bad for a movie budgeted at $9 million). Following the success of the sequel, NBCUniversal signed Blumhouse Prods. to an unusually broad 10-year deal encompassing film, TV and digital.

Blum made his biggest bet on the demographic with “The Marked Ones,” a Latino spinoff of “Paranormal Activity” that »
