High schoolers in "The Curse of Downers Grove"

In the new trailer for The Curse of Downers Grove, we meet a group of high school seniors who’ve got way more on their minds than just prom or graduation. In the town of Downers Grove, IL, a senior has died gruesomely right before graduation each year for about a decade. One senior, Chrissie (Bella Heathcote), doesn’t have much time for curses, at least not at the start of the trailer. However, as things progress – and a lot of flashy, stylized violence goes down – she seems to lose the gallows humor and start edging closer to belief.   

Joel Edgerton in "The Gift"

We’ve all got things we’d like to leave in the past, but in the new trailer for The Gift one of them shows up out of the blue, wearing a goatee that implies decidedly sinister intentions. That goatee is being sported by Gordo, played by Joel Edgerton (who also wrote and directed). Gordo has set his sights on Simon (Jason Bateman) who, it’s implied, did something not very nice to Gordo when they were younger. Also targeted, by extension, is Simon’s wife Robyn (Rebecca Hall).

Masked maniac in "Tales of Halloween"

For some horror fans, the mere mention of a new anthology film set on Halloween may elicit cries of “Trick r’ Treat’did it!” However, the makers of Tales of Halloween are hoping fans can find room in their hearts and, maybe one day, in their Blu-ray collections for another Halloween-centric collection of shorts.

Fans of a certain age are sure to remember R.L. Stine's abundant series of Goosebumps books. With the publication of Welcome to Dead House back in 1992, Stine made a niche for himself in the genre of horror fiction aimed at young kids. His books were so popular that they even inspired a television series that ran from 1995-1998.

The monstrous child may be one of the more persistent horror tropes of the passed 10 years. Though remakes and all sorts of paranormal/possession narratives run the day them kids are still savage. From “Let the Right One In” in 2008 and 2009’s “Grace” we’ve been treated to “Let Me In”, “Come Out and Play”, the “It’s Alive” remake, “Orphan”, “Citadel” and director Ciaràn Foy’s next effort “Sinister 2” and the upcoming “Cooties”.

Ladies, gentleman, fans of all ages, gather round. Something truly magnificent has taken place. The much-anticipated Ash vs Evil Dead finally has a trailer! Not a teaser, not a release of some art work, but a real trailer. When The Evil Dead came on the scene more than thirty years ago, director Sam Raimi changed the history of horror forever and fans have almost universally praised the trilogy accordingly.

Fran Kranz, Joey Kern and Emma Fitzpatrick duel vampires in Bloodsucking Bastards

If you’ve ever wondered what Office Space would be like if Bill Lumbergh was a vampire, it looks like you’re about to get your answer in the new horror comedy Bloodsucking Bastards. The film’s fun debut trailer pits a group of white collar workers (led by Fran Kranz of Cabin in the Woods fame) against their new boss (Game of Thrones’ Pedro Pascal) who, as it so happens, is a vampire – and a busy one at that.

While the first international trailer for Tale of Tales is thin in terms of plot points, dialogue or big set pieces, it still manages to give the viewer a pretty good idea of what to expect – style and lots of it. Italian filmmaker Matteo Garrone’s English language debut looks to be heavy on the panache according to its definitely NSFW trailer, which ambles along through a series of visually-appealing snippets all set to a serene operatic score.

In a passing glance at the premise to Corin Hardy's debut film The Hallow  one can't help but conjure up memories of Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead- people in a secluded setting battling the supernatural. Hardy, who is on deck to direct the remake of The Crow clearly took heavy influence for his much talked about debut. The frames on display in the debut trailer for The Hallow have roots deep in Raimi's own debut, but with a more polished aesthetic and set on the Irish countryside. 

This is not a prank, April Fools has come and gone! After delay after delay (after delay) it looks like Eli Roth's cannibal film, The Green InfernoI, is finally coming to the big screen this fall. At this point, this movie has been talked about so much, I assume that half the people in the theaters will go just to see the movie that we have heard about for so long. Although, to clarify the film's delay reportedly had nothing to do with the content of the movie and was caused instead by a contract dispute between the companies involved.
