Horror Spin-Off - First Teaser Trailer for 'The Strangers: Prey at Night'

The Strangers: Prey at Night Teaser

"Leave us alone!" "But we've just started…" Aviron Pictures has launched the first teaser trailer for a new horror spin-off titled The Strangers: Prey at Night. Instead of actually making a sequel to cult horror hit The Strangers (directed by Bryan Bertino in 2008), they went off and decided to make an "inspired by" film. This one follows a family staying in a secluded mobile home park for a night, who are visited by three masked psychopaths. So the same masked weirdos are back, but a different time/place. The cast includes Christina Hendricks, Martin Henderson, Bailee Madison, & Lewis Pullman. This really does look creepy with a few very scary moments, just not sure if it will bring anything new to the horror/slasher table.

Trailer for Camping Horror 'Desolation' Made by Director Sam Patton

Desolation Trailer

"Dad said you should never go off trail." IFC Midnight has unveiled an official trailer for a horror thriller titled Desolation, the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Sam Patton. This first premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival, but hasn't played at too many other festivals. In Desolation, a young mother, her best friend and son venture into the wilderness for a camping trip only to find themselves the hunted prey in a deranged killer’s terrifying game. The cast includes Jaimi Paige, Alyshia Ochse, Claude Duhamel, and Toby Nichols. This looks like an interesting horror thriller, but I'm pretty sure I've already figured out the twist. Though I guess I don't really know. The sunglasses dude doesn't seem that creepy, but that's just me.

Official Trailer for Wacky Horror Comedy 'Attack of the Killer Donuts'

Attack of the Killer Donuts

"We've eaten them for years, now it's their turn!" Level 33 Entertainment has dropped a trailer for a goofy new horror comedy film titled Attack of the Killer Donuts, which is indeed about donuts that become bloody thirsty killers. They've thought of everything, haven't they? Maybe this is the perfect trailer to watch the day after Halloween, although it'll probably give you the munchies for donuts (just make sure the ones you buy aren't bloody thirsty killers). Attack of the Killer Donuts stars Justin Ray, Kayla Compton, Ben Heyman, Kassandra Voyagis, Michael Swan, and Aaron Groben. On one hand, it's kind of cool that something this wacky still exists (with its own theme song?!). On the other, this looks as awful as it sounds.

First Trailer for Creepy Horror 'The Doll' Featuring Valeria Lukyanova

The Doll Trailer

"They can't handle it when guys upgrade to a better model… and this, my friend, is a much better model." Gravitas Ventures has unveiled the first brief teaser trailer for the horror thriller film The Doll, starring the woman actually known as "The Human Barbie." The as-expected plot involves two guys ordering a model from an escort service, only to discover that Natasha is a possessed doll created by a mad doctor that only wants to kill. How original. Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova stars as "The Doll", making her feature debut as an actress after getting popular as "The Human Barbie" online. The rest of the film's cast includes Christopher Lenk, Anthony Del Negro, Don Scribner, Ron Jeremy, Mindy Robinson, and Lilian Lev. I don't know if it's just this trailer, but this looks pretty terrible. Really, nothing about this looks good.

First Teaser Trailers for British Horror 'Ghost Stories' About a Skeptic

Ghost Stories Trailer

"You don't believe, do ya?" IFC has unveiled three teaser trailers for a new ghost horror movie titled Ghost Stories, which already premiered at the London Film Festival earlier this month. It's due out in 2018 but doesn't have an exact date yet. Based on the long-running British horror stage show created by English magician Andy Nyman, the film is about a psychologist and arch-skeptic named Professor Phillip Goodman who investigates three terrifying hauntings. Andy Nyman plays Goodman, and the rest of the ensemble cast includes Martin Freeman, Alex Lawther, Jill Halfpenny, Paul Whitehouse, Nicholas Burns, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, Daniel Hill, Derren Brown, and Ryan Oliva. It seems like an anthology film, but it also seems like there is a connection between the three stories. I'm very curious to see this film.

Review: 'Jigsaw' Continues the 'Saw' Franchise With Little Freshness or Creativity

Jigsaw Movie Review

It doesn't take much knowledge of the horror genre to realize a final chapter hardly means anything. Just as many franchises that have had a "final chapter" have carried on with gleeful bloodletting as if nothing of finality has ever even occurred. So it's no surprise the Saw series has returned. Seven years after the series' apparent conclusion, the games are rigged back up, the unwilling participants are again in imminent peril, and the mysteries surrounding the Jigsaw killer and his legacy are at it once again. While the return of this franchise could have been used to shake things up, though, those traps and the mystery they bring offer little freshness or a sense of the new to the proceedings. Fans of the series will be happy with the franchise's return, but the Spierig Brothers' Jigsaw and its latest game won't be winning over any new contestants.

A Beach Town That Adores Horror - My Trip to the Sitges Film Festival

Sitges Film Festival

There's an adorable little beach town, about a half hour south of Barcelona, called Sitges. Every year, this town hosts a film festival in October called, of course, the Sitges Film Festival. Officially it's known as the Festival Internacional de Cinema Fantàstic de Catalunya (website here). Sitges is a "genre" festival, in the same vein as Fantastic Fest, screening horror, action, sci-fi, thrillers, and any other wacky, weird little features they find around the world. This year Sitges celebrated its 50th year, and for that reason I decided to finally attend this festival that I've been hearing about for a while. Oh my goodness, it's amazing. One of the best festivals in the world, almost so good that I don't want to tell you about it, because part of it what makes it perfect is that it isn't overrun with people (yet). But, it is my job, so I will reveal a little bit about it.

Helen Mirren in First 'Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built' Trailer

Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built Trailer

"It's under never-ending construction…" CBS Films has unveiled the first official trailer for a new horror thriller film titled Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built, which is supposedly inspired by true events. The film tells the story of "the most haunted house in the world", built by Sarah Winchester, played by Helen Mirren, heiress to the Winchester (weaponry) fortune. The house, located 50 miles outisde of San Francisco, stands seven stories tall and contains hundreds of rooms. Apparently Sarah Winchester built this house as a prison, an asylum for hundreds of vengeful ghosts. The cast includes Jason Clarke, Sarah Snook, Angus Sampson, Laura Brent, Tyler Coppin, and Dawayne Jordan. This looks like a solid haunted house film, with some crazy things going on and spooky ghosts. I'd actually like to visit this house.

Watch: 'Kinderfänger' - Genuinely Scary Pied Piper Horror Short Film

Kinderfänger Short Film

"Following the music leads to death…" Whoa! Looking for something to really, truly scare you? Watch this. Kinderfänger is a horror short film from director Christopher Alender, that premiered on Crypt TV's YouTube series of horror shorts this month. The title Kinderfänger roughly translates to "child snatcher", which makes this all the more scary when you see what happens in it. There are a few big twists, and some crazy horrific moments that you won't see coming. But damn this is some slick, minimal filmmaking. The Kinderfänger villain is freaky as hell, one of the scariest horror creatures I've seen in a while. So, watch out.

Official Trailer for Horror Thriller Film 'I Remember You' from Iceland

I Remember You Trailer

"It's impossible that this is a coincidence." IFC Films has debuted an official US trailer for a horror thriller titled I Remember You from Iceland, about a young man and woman who move into a small abandoned town in Iceland to renovate an old house. Of course, this house has a dark past and things start to happen once they arrive. While this trailer is appropriately timed for the horror season this October, the film doesn't actually open until mid-November in America. This stars a fine set of Icelandic actors: Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, Thor Kristjansson, Ágústa Eva Erlendsdóttir & Anna Gunndís Guðmundsdóttir. This looks like another good dark, freaky supernatural thriller with an Icelandic twist. Check it out below.

Official Trailer for Horror Thriller Film 'Angelica' Starring Jena Malone

Angelica Trailer

"The evil that troubles your home must see that I am your invited guest." Freestyle has revealed an official trailer for the horror thriller Angelica, which has been sitting on the shelf for two years awaiting release. Angelica is the latest film from Mitchell Lichtenstein, the director of that wacky, freaky horror film Teeth from a decade ago. This is a supernatural thriller set in Victorian England about a couple who encounter a ghost in their house after having a baby named Angelica. It's described as a "spellbinding ghost story about desire, repression and its consequences", which sounds like it could be good, but also sounds like it could be bad. Jena Malone stars, also with Ed Stoppard, Janet McTeer, Tovah Feldshuh, Charles Keating, Daniel Gerroll, and James Norton. The footage is creepy, but it doesn't seem like anything that special.

Official Trailer for Mickey Keating's Horror Thriller Film 'Psychopaths'

Psychopaths Trailer

"You look like a friendly crowd!" Samuel Goldywn Films recently debuted this official trailer for the new horror thriller titled Psychopaths, which first played at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. This is also the latest film from Mickey Keating, director of the films Ritual, Pod, Darling, and Carnage Park, which was also released this year. Psychopaths is about seven different serial killers whose paths cross over one single, blood soaked night. This looks flashy and stylish, though it's hard to tell what exactly is going on in this trailer. The ensemble cast includes Ashley Bell, Angela Trimbur, James Landry Hebert, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Jeremy Gardner, Ivana Shein, and Larry Fessenden. If you're into indie horror, and masks, and serial killer films, then this is for you. But if you're not into that, well, maybe not. Have fun.
