Blu Ray Alert: "Halloween 4" and "Halloween 5"

The Halloween series has always been a favorite of mine. Honestly, I liked everything up until the Paul Rudd one ("Halloween 6"), which is kind of sad because I love me some Paul Rudd. And yes, for those of you that are asking, I even love "Halloween 3: Season of the Witch". But back on point, on August 21, Anchor Bay will be revamping two of my favorite movies from the series, "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers" and "Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers".

Retro Trailer: "Dead and Buried" (1981)

If you are looking for a psychological horror film to watch this weekend, look no further. "Dead and Buried" is one of those films that I loved watching growing up and it actually still holds up pretty well. The whole film brings out a creepy atmosphere and while it's a bit of a slow burn, the ending is a lot of fun. Written by Dan O'Bannon and Ronald Shusett, "Dead and Buried" takes place in the coastal town of Potter's Bluff, which has harbored a dark secret.

Teaser for the Trailer for "Paranormal Activity 4" (2012)

Yep, you heard me right. A teaser for the trailer for "Paranormal Activity 4" was released and it really doesn't show us anything about where the fourth movie will be heading. While I'm pretty sure that teaser trailers for actual trailers are completely ridiculous, that didn't stop me from sneaking a peak at the teaser below. The clip basically just shows a bunch of clips from the 3 previous films and about 1 second of new footage.

Retro Trailer: "The Gore-Gore Girls" (1972)

A ditsy reporter enlists the help of a sleazy private eye to solve a series of gory killings of female strippers at a Chicago nightclub in "The Gore-Gore Girls". Wackiness and crazy violence ensue. Director Herschell Gordon Lewis, the godfather of gore films, has brought us one of the first horror flicks to receive an X rating. If you're in the mood for a completely ridiculous, violent splatter fest, you can check out "The Gore-Gore Girls" on Netflix Instant Watch. Watch it with your loved ones.

Michael Biehn's "The Victim" to be Featured at Horror Fests

Michael Biehn's upcoming grind house film "The Victim" has been selected to play at the Fantasia Film Fest and Frightfest UK. Shot in 12 days, from a script he wrote in 3 weeks, Biehn's "The Victim" follows good time girls Annie and Mary as they find themselves in a life and death situation. Annie’s life is put in jeopardy when she is witness to a violent act at the hands of two Sheriff’s Deputies.  With her pursuers closing in, she stumbles across Kyle, a recluse living in the middle of the woods. "The Victim" stars Michael Biehn, Jennifer Blanc, Ryan Honey and Danielle Harris.

Snapshot: "Smiley" (2012)

I'm not gonna lie, the killer from the upcoming movie "Smiley" is pretty freaky looking. And the plot sounds pretty decent too: After learning of an urban legend in which a demented serial killer named "Smiley" can be summoned through the Internet, mentally fragile Ashley must decide whether she is losing her mind or becoming Smiley's next victim. The film, which is being distributed by Fever Productions, will be using a new hybrid approach for distribution.

Snapshot: "The Possession" (2012)

A recently divorced father's (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) youngest daughter (Madison Davenport, pictured above) becomes strangely connected to an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. As his daughter's behavior becomes more erratic, the father senses a dark presence building until he discovers that the box was built to contain a dibbuk -- a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host. "The Possession" is set to hit theaters August 31, 2012 and also stars Kyra Sedgwick. If you are a fan of creepy kid movies, this should be right up your alley.

Trailer: "Sinister" (2012)

"Sinister" is a new supernatural thriller from the producer of the "Paranormal Activity" films and the writer/director of "The Exorcism of Emily Rose". Ethan Hawke plays a true crime novelist who discovers a box of mysterious, disturbing home movies that plunge his family into a nightmarish experience of supernatural horror. The early buzz around this film promises a creepy atmosphere and a lot of scares. Plus, Ethan Hawke is in it, so I'm already sold. "Sinister" will be hitting theaters just in time for the Halloween boom on October 5, 2012.

"Mrs. Doubtfire" Would Make A Creepy Horror Movie

Everyone remembers "Mrs. Doubtfire", the 1993 family comedy in which a recently divorced father (Robin Williams) poses as an old British woman in order to babysit his kids without their mother's knowledge. Admittedly, just in that description alone, the film can easily be mistaken a more suspenseful type of movie. In fact, there are quite a few things in this film (latex masks, fat suits, drive by fruitings) that are sure to set the scene for a creepy horror movie and that's exactly what creator Peter Javidpour had in mind when he recut the film to create a new trailer of the film.

Snapshot: "Silent Night" (2012)

In what is being described as a loose remake of the 1984 horror classic "Silent Night, Deadly Night", director Steven C. Miller brings us "Silent Night", starring Malcolm McDowell, Jaime King, Donal Logue, and Jamie Kennedy. If you're unfamiliar with the storyline, the film takes place around a small towns annual Santa Parade, which has brought record numbers of the jolly fat man to town.
