10 Chilling Horror Movies to Make You Shiver This Winter

10 Chilling Horror Movies to Make You Shiver This Winter
As the climate transitions from chilly to downright bone-chilling, all of us will likely be spending more time indoors. But my modo is: When the weather outside is frightful, curling up on the couch with a good horror movie can be delightful! While fear may likely trigger an elevated heartrate, resulting in increased body temperature, some creepers are terrifying enough to make you shiver, no matter how loud your fireplace (or space heater) is roaring.

And then there are horror movies that exasperate the external chill by using cold as a trope, a plot motivator, or even a character itself. Kids love building snowmen, but an unforgiving Arctic blast can be just as scary as any haunted house or masked psychopath. Hey, at least no one at Camp Crystal Lake has to worry about freezing to death.

The 10 horror movies below are chilling, but they're also cold in the literal sense,

Watch: Channing Tatum & Bros. Grind Their Bods Again In The First Trailer For ‘Magic Mike Xxl’

The gang is back in “Magic Mike Xxl,” this time in a road trip film. Ok, most of the gang is back. Matthew McConaughey’s Dallas and Alex Pettyfer’s The Kid characters are awol, but returning to the fold are Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez and Gabriel Iglesias. Steven Soderbergh has vacated the director’s chair too, but don’t worry, he’s acted as director of photography, camera man and editor (we heard this one basically locked picture already). Instead, Soderbergh’s right-hand man and longtime producer/first A.D. Greg Jacobs is at the helm (he directed “Criminal” and “Wind Chill”). From all accounts, while still written by Reid Carolin and Tatum, “Magic Mike Xxl” sounds like much more of a good time buddies comedy. This time the strippers take a road trip from Tampa to Myrtle Beach for a stripping convention.

Amazon Releases Preview Clips Of New Pilot Red Oaks

Amazon Studios have always done things a little differently. Firstly, their door is always open to creators wishing to submit material. Secondly, when they produce that material, it’s for the audience to decide if it is of sufficient quality to warrant further investment. They make a pilot available, people watch it, and its fate is determined by user comments and ratings. Among the latest of these offerings is Red Oaks – a comedy written by Joe Gangemi (Wind Chill) and Gregory Jacobs (Criminal), directed by David Gordon Green (Prince Avalanche) and executive produced by Steven Soderbergh. To say it is worth checking out is an understatement.

Starring Craig Roberts (22 Jump Street), Paul Reiser (Mad About You), Richard Kind (Obvious Child) and Jennifer Grey (The Bling Ring), the show is set in the 1980s, and sees a college student take a summer job as an assistant tennis pro at a country club.

Details On 'Magic Mike 2' & Soderbergh Will be Back, Just Not as Director

Speaking with GQ, Channing Tatum let loose some details when it comes to Magic Mike Xxl (aka Magic Mike 2), which he co-wrote with Reid Carolin and will return as the title star. First thing to note for those that haven't been paying close attention, Steven Soderbergh will not be back to direct, instead Soderbergh's longtime second unit director, Gregory Jacobs, will be taking over at the helm for the now "retired" (from theatrical filmmaking at least) director.

"We had many, many nights of heated debate. I was, 'I don't f--ing get it! Whyc' And he's like, 'I don't need it.'" Soderbergh, it turns out, will serve as editor and cinematographer, which might be the best thing

Greg Jacobs Directing Magic Mike Sequel
While we’ve known for a while that Channing Tatum is hard at work on the Magic Mike sequel – the man himself recently tweeted photographic evidence – but most other details were still hidden. Now The Playlist has it that Greg Jacobs will be the man to direct the new film, and that it will be called Magic Mike Xxl.The word arrives from “sources”, so we can’t treat it as official yet, but Jacobs certainly isn’t a stranger to the world of Magic Mike, nor the first film’s director, Steven Soderbergh. He’s served as first assistant director for Soderbergh since King Of The Hill and has been a producer on his films for several years. So while there had been chatter about Tatum or writing/producing partner Reid Carolin taking the reins, Jacobs would seem to be a smart choice. Jacobs has also called the shots
