Jordan Peele Wants to Venture into Horror to Write & Direct 'Get Out'

Jordan Peele

We just learned that Jordan Peele and Keegan Michael Key, the comedy duo better known as Key & Peele, would finally team up together on the big screen for Keanu, the story of a group of friends who must enter the criminal underworld to retrieve a kidnapped cat. However, each of the guys have projects of their own that they do without each other all the time. Most of those projects have been small roles in various comedies over the past few years, but now Peele has his sights set on getting behind the camera and switching genres. Speaking to Playboy (via Badass Digest), Peele revealed a desire to take a stab at horror.

Watch: 'Dog Food' Short with Cory Michael Smith & Amanda Seyfried

Dog Food Short Film

"You probably don't stock this in your shop." What better way to freak people out for Halloween than with something that is totally fucked up? If this short didn't have a Hollywood cast included, I probably would've skipped right over it (especially running at 18 minutes) but alas, here we are, sharing with you the one of the craziest shorts I've seen yet. Titled Dog Food from writer/director Brian Crano (@briancrano), the short stars Cory Michael Smith, Amanda Seyfried, David Craig and an adorable dog. Tip: don't watch this if you're eating, or about to start eating food anytime soon, as you may lose your appetite. Oh and I should say that, yes, the director is actually a dog owner/lover. Which might explain the way this ends. So have fun!

Review: Bland, Horrible 'Ouija' is Part of a Bigger Hollywood Problem

Ouija

There's an odd correlation between cineplex screens and toy-store shelves these days. The movies-being-turned-into-toys-being-turned-into-movies cycle is hardly a 2014 revelation. But, with Michael Bay's most recent Transformers movie scraping the well in search for content, it finally felt like that synergistic cycle was a foregone conclusion. Entertainment and, God forbid, story were afterthoughts to the dollars and cents the film ultimately pulled in. I use Transformers as the example, because Bay's horror-movie production company, Platinum Dunes, has a product in which they'd like you to invest. It's called Ouija, and it's awful.

First Teaser Trailer for Leigh Whannel's Prequel 'Insidious: Chapter 3'

Insidious: Chapter 3

The next installment of horror in the Insidious franchise will be upon us next summer with Insidious: Chapter 3. This time, writer Leigh Whannel is stepping behind the camera as director, and it looks like he's captured what James Wan delivered with the first two installments. This time, the story takes us to the past where a teenage girl (Stefanie Scott) and her father (Dermot Mulroney) are haunted by dark spirits, all happening before the events in the first two films. There's some truly startling moments here, but also some of the stuff we're sick of in horror movies. Also, doesn't it seem odd that both Insidious and the spin-off Annabelle (both produced by Wan) moved the horror from a house to an apartment complex? Hmm. Watch!

Watch: Back to Eel Marsh House in 'Woman in Black 2' Full UK Trailer

The Woman in Black: Angel of Death

"I think you should keep your visions to yourself." Following Daniel Radcliffe's unfortunate dealings with the haunted Eel Marsh House in The Woman in Black, a new group of victims will feel the terror in the sequel The Woman in Black: Angel of Death. After being evacuated out of London in the midst of the historical blitz, two teachers bring a group of school children to the house for refuge. But instead, they awaken the horrors within, which prompts creepy kids laughing, gross old dolls, rocking chairs moving by themselves, and all sorts of other cliches. There's some scary elements, but this doesn't look all that great.

Watch: Weird, Cronenberg-Esque Horror Short 'Flesh Computer'

Flesh Computer Short

"I don't see why there shouldn't be this kind of brain computer interface that may well have the effect of extending ourselves." Ready for more wacky horror as we continue further into October? Today's short won Best Special Effects at the Indie Horror Festival and also played at Fantasia, Sci-Fi London, Dallas and the LA Shorts Fest before premiering online in full. It's called Flesh Computer, from writer/director Ethan Shaftel (@eshaftel), and follows a man with a "cybernetic pet" that causes some problems in the apartment building he lives in. Some of the FX aren't that great (mainly the fly), but other shots look better. While there is certainly a Cronenberg feeling, this short also mixes in sci-fi, tech, gore, social horror and lots more.

Lucas Till Faces a Pack of Beasts in the Red Band Trailer for 'Wolves'

Wolves

Jason Momoa caught a lot of attention for his role in the first season of "Game of Thrones," and soon he'll be even bigger after taking the role of Aquaman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, leading to a likely more pivotal role in Justice League. But before that, you can see him hamming it up as a big hairy villain in the campy horror flick Wolves. This doesn't really look good, but it looks like silly fun. With a tone that seems similar to "True Blood," the story follows a young, troubled kid (Lucas Till) digging into his past who ends up tumbling upon a supernatural secret in the town of Lupine Ridge. Yes, there's werewolves, and this red band trailer shows them chomping and leaping all over. Watch the trailer below!

Watch: 'Toy Story' & Woody Get Scary in 'Annabelle' Trailer Mash-Up

Toy Story

Right now, audiences can see James Wan's horror spin-off prequel Annabelle, which focuses on the story of the creepy doll glimpsed in The Conjuring. The film offers some decent scares, but it's mostly a formulaic story of demon possession and supernatural events that we've seen before. So MTV decided to freshen things up by taking some footage to Toy Story and mashing it up with the teaser trailer for Annabelle. The result is a very creepy and scary Woody that will never have you look at the cowboy the same way again. It seems like a little more could be done to add to this mash-up, but it's still fun nonetheless. Watch it below!

Review: Decent Scares Keep 'Annabelle' from Being a Complete Waste

Annabelle

It's hard to detect a good reason for Annabelle, the horror prequel to last year's terrifying The Conjuring, to exist. It's not as if the makers behind this latest film have anything groundbreaking to say about haunted house movies, creepy doll movies, or even possession movies despite the film dabbling in all three. Annabelle's creativity appears in its scares, something the film does quite well. But no matter how many times it makes you jump, regardless of the menacing tone it accomplishes in droves, Annabelle ends up being yet another standard, generic supernatural thriller that only succeeds in surface-level horror.

Fantastic Fest Review: 'It Follows' Sure To Hit with the Horror Crowd

It Follows

No one expected writer/director David Robert Mitchell to follow his beloved, indie hit The Myth of the American Sleepover with a horror film. Even fewer expected it to be one of the most terrifying cautionary tales to come down the horror mountain in a long, long while. Regardless that's what we get with It Follows, because that's precisely what it is, a spine-chilling yet simple story that knows exactly how to get under the viewer's skin. Mitchell knocks the slew of horror tropes he could have easily fed us to the side, and It Follows ends up being a unique film that just may do more for young-adult abstinence than a sex ed class.
