Deck the Halls with a Red Band Trailer for Horror 'Better Watch Out'

Better Watch Out Trailer

"Don't worry, I'll protect you." Well Go USA has released an official red band trailer for Chris Peckover's Better Watch Out, a holiday horror movie about a scary home invasion one snowy night. Ever since Mike Dougherty's Krampus a few years ago, I've been hoping we might see some other holiday horror movies that aren't too cheesy. This one looks fun and very freaky, with hopefully some good twists involving the two kids fighting back. It seems to start out pretty conventional, but then gets gnarly in the second half of this trailer, definitely earning that "Home Alone meets The Strangers" quote. The cast includes Olivia DeJonge, Levi Miller, Ed Oxenbould, Patrick Warburton, Virginia Madsen, and Dacre Montgomery. Have fun.

Official Trailer for Social Media Slasher Horror Comedy 'Tragedy Girls'

Tragedy Girls Trailer

"Anybody could next - even you!" Gunpowder & Sky has unveiled an official trailer for the film Tragedy Girls, a horror comedy about social media obsession. Described as a cross between Scream and Clueless, this "biting satire" is about two girls at a high school who decide to start killing people themselves in order to gain more social media followers. Yeah, sounds a bit crazy but it actually looks good. Starring Alexandra Shipp and Brianna Hildebrand, along with Josh Hutcherson, Craig Robinson, Kevin Durand, Jack Quaid, Timothy V. Murphy, Nicky Whelan, Austin Abrams, Kerry Rhodes, as well as Mary Carmen Lopez. This would also play nice as a double feature with Ingrid Goes West, another smart satire about social media obsession. This does look hilarious, might be a devious horror gem uncovered this year.

Robert Englund in Official Trailer for Horror Thriller Film 'Nightworld'

Nightworld Trailer

"What do you keep back there, King Kong?" Gravitas Ventures has unveiled a trailer for an indie horror thriller film titled Nightworld, from Chilean director Patricio Valladares. The story follows a former LAPD officer who gets a night security job at an old apartment building in Bulgaria's capital, Sofia. But he soon discovers the building has a "malevolent force nestled deep in the bowels" that wants to break free and enter our world. Jason London stars (and he looks a lot like Greg Kinnear), along with horror icon Robert Englund, plus Gianni Capaldi, Lorina Kamburova, Diana Lyubenova, and Atanas Srebrev. This really doesn't look that great, but maybe that's just me. The big door is the coolest part about it. See below.

Review: Muschietti's 'It' Effortlessly Blends Horror, Humor, and Heart

Muschietti's It Review

Inspired by Richard Matheson, Ray Bradbury, H.P. Lovecraft, and EC Comics' Tales from the Crypt and The Vault of Horror, Stephen King carved a path for himself as the world's foremost writer of horror fiction throughout the '70s and '80s. By the time his novel It was published in 1986, many of King's best-selling books had already been adapted into successful films, including Carrie, The Shining, Cujo, The Dead Zone, and Christine. With the ambitious It, however, King's work shifted shape, much like the novel's titular evil entity haunting a small town in Maine. Instead of writing about the one thing that scared you, like a rabid dog or a demonic car, this time he was writing about everything that did - the very nature of fear itself.

Norwegian Supernatural Thriller Film 'Thelma' Gets a New US Trailer


"This is something much greater than us." The Orchard has unveiled an official US trailer for Norwegian filmmaker Joachim Trier's new film Thelma, about a young woman who moves to Oslo and begins to fall in love with another woman, discovering that she also has fantastic, terrifying "super" powers. Starring Eili Harboe as Thelma, as well as Okay Kaya, Ellen Dorrit Petersen, and Henrik Rafaelsen. You may remember we posted a teaser trailer for this during the summer, but this new trailer shows us even more and this looks like it could be something very exciting. The film premieres at the Toronto Film Festival this month, and will also play at Fantastic Fest, before hitting select theaters in November. Word is that it could be a breakout hit the likes of Raw, Let The Right One In, or The Babadook. This is definitely worth a watch.

Lin Shaye Returns in Trailer for Horror Sequel 'Insidious: The Last Key'

Insidious: The Last Key Trailer

"This one is different, though. The haunted house is my family's house." Universal has unveiled an official trailer for the horror sequel Insidious: The Last Key, also known as just Insidious 4, since this is the latest in this on-going horror franchise. Perhaps the final sequel considering it's called The Last Key? Lin Shaye returns as Dr. Elise Rainier, the brilliant parapsychologist who ends up being terrorized in her own home by the demons that have been haunting houses ever since Insidious in 2010. Shaye is joined in the cast by Angus Sampson, Leigh Whannell, Josh Stewart, Caitlin Gerard, Kirk Acevedo, Javier Botet, Bruce Davison, Spencer Locke, Tessa Ferrer, Ava Kolker and Marcus Henderson. I was into the first two Insidious films, but totally lost interest after it became a "franchise". Have a look if you want.

First Trailer for Cheesy High School Horror Thriller 'Deadly Detention'

Deadly Detention Trailer

"Attention students, the rules have changed. I am your new principal." Yes, I fully admit this looks terrible, but thankfully you don't have to waste any time or money on this if you don't want to - all trailers are free to watch! Deadly Detention, originally known as The Detained before the title change, is a new horror thriller about five "archetypal teens" (eye roll already) serving detention who "find themselves in a life or death situation." The main cast includes Henry Zaga, Alex Frnka, Sarah Davenport, Coy Stewart, Jennifer Robyn Jacobs, Kevin Blake, and Gillian Vigman. At least they admit in the description that the characters are archetypal, because everything about this looks cheesy and awful and not worth watching.

Trailer for Horror Sequel 'Jeepers Creepers III' Directed by Victor Salva

Jeepers Creepers 3 Trailer

"What happened here, happened before!" Screen Media Films has unveiled a short but effective trailer for the horror sequel Jeepers Creepers III, the newest since Jeepers Creepers II hit theaters way back in 2003. Once again directed by Victor Salva, who made the first two, this one actually takes place between the first and second film. This one is about Sergeant Tubbs assembling a task force hellbent on destroying The Creeper, which is terrorizing a local farming community. The cast includes Brandon Smith, Meg Foster, Gina Philips, Carrie Lazar, Stan Shaw, Joyce Giraud, and Jonathan Breck playing The Creeper. I remember all the rage for the first two, but I'm surprised they've made a sequel now 15 years later. Anyone?

Freaky New Trailer for 'Ghost House' Horror Taking Place in Thailand

Ghost House Trailer

"This vacation is going to be so amazing!" Oh, if only they knew… Vertical Entertainment has unveiled an official trailer for a horror thriller titled Ghost House, from filmmaker Rich Ragsdale. We haven't heard much about this, but it looks like your standard haunted house plus one super angry ghost movie, with the increasingly common horror trope of idiot white tourists in a foreign country making a fool of themselves and provoking evil spirits. Ghost House stars Scout Taylor-Compton, James Landry Hébert, Mark Boone Junior, Michael S. New, Elana Krausz, and Kevin Ragsdale. This definitely does look scary, although quite predictable, but maybe there's some solid thrills in it. Worth a watch if you're a horror fan.

First Trailer for Alien Abduction Indie Horror Film 'Welcome to Willits'

Welcome to Willits Trailer

"I ain't sure what they want, but they ain't nice." IFC Midnight has unveiled an official trailer for a sci-fi horror film titled Welcome to Willits, which played at various genre film festivals all last year. Set in the woods of Northern California in an off-the-grid town called Willits, a "haven for marijuana growers, meth addicts, and conspiracy theorists", the story is about a group of teens who get mixed up with a local pot farmer. And then the aliens show up and all hell breaks loose. This is described as a "no-holds-barred pileup of carnage, twisted comedy, and pure crazy." Let's hope all of that is true. Starring Bill Sage, Rory Culkin, Anastasia Baranova, Garrett Clayton, and surprisingly enough, Dolph Lundgren. I don't think I've seen a film that mixes drugs and aliens in this way, can't say it's going to be a good combination. Watch out.

Teaser Trailer for Surprise 4th 'Hatchet' Horror Titled 'Victor Crowley'

Victor Crowley Trailer

"It's coming for all of us." Surprise - he's back! A teaser trailer has debuted for a brutal slasher horror titled Victor Crowley, which is the name of the villain in the Hatchet series of horror movies. Victor Crowley is indeed the fourth Hatchet movie, made in secret by filmmaker Adam Green, the same guy who started the series back in 2006. Set a decade after the events of the first three films, the story follows the one-and-only survivor who has been trying to get people to believe his story for years. But he ends up back at the place where it all started, and Crowley is mistakenly resurrected. Starring Kane Hodder and Parry Shen, along with Laura Ortiz, Dave Sheridan, and Brian Quinn. Bloody Disgusting (who premiered the trailer) also just reviewed the film, saying it's "the Gory Slasher Film You’re Craving!" Yes, it looks brutal and very gory.

First Official Trailer for Snowy French Retro Horror Film 'Cold Ground'

Cold Ground Trailer

"The lucky ones freeze to death." A trailer has debuted for the snowy indie horror titled Cold Ground, a creature feature about a team of documentary filmmakers who venture into the mountains. Set in the 1970s, the found footage story follows journalists who head to the French-Swiss border to investigate a strange case of cattle mutilations, but the scientific team they were supposed to meet is nowhere to be found. This is described as a retro horror that is like "The Blair Witch Project meets The Descent", and it's filmed to look like it was made in the 70s with Super 8 cameras. Starring Doug Rand, Philip Schurer, Gala Besson, Fabrice Pierre, and Maura Tillay. This looks very scary, here's to hoping it's as good as the quotes claim.
