looking forward to this upcoming werewolf flick - late phases about a blind war veteran who is put into an old folks home where a few of the previous elderly residents have died from mysterious animal attacks.

this one is sending out vibes of the awesome silver bullet(1985) and bad moon(1996).

The last modern horror I viewed was a Brit film or at least it took place there. The name escapes me but the plot centered around a gent who was a clown that worked birthday parties and was inadvertently killed at a party. he then returns and raises all hell.

I regret not being able to have that ninety minutes of my life back.

mischief night (2013).

http://youtu.be/NEqV5CXkfkY - mischief night (2013) trailer

two home invasion style horror/thriller's both released within 6-7 months of each other,both with the same name,both with similar plots - teenage girl home alone confronted by a masked pyscho or psycho's on the night before halloween(mischief night) etc.etc.


 -
noell coet as the blind emily in mischief night (2013).


the differences between the 2 from what i've gathered from watching both trailers and reading the various online reviews is that in mischief night 2013 the young girl under threat is both blind and badly asthmatic where as in the 2014 version the young lady may well be slightly unbalanced and was at one time suicidal.

also the 2014 movie - mischief night that they have the twist of the young girl befriending her psycho intruder and eventually turning the tables on him.

this is only guess work i must mention as i've not actually seen either film yet.

i could be way off the mark!



 -
mischief night (2014).


http://youtu.be/qHILZ4G-mN8 - mischief night (2014) trailer.


has anyone here ever actually heard of the tradition of mischief night before?

i think it's one i have heard briefly off in the past but i can't say that i'm over familiar with it.

i always thought halloween night "trick or treat" was the night of pranks and mischief!


 -
brooke anne smith(kaylie) + psycho in mischief night (2014).


both movies have recieved some pretty mixed reviews so far!

mischief night(2013) has been released over here in the uk within the last few months under the same name where as the 2014 version which also features macolm mcdowell in a small cameo role has been pushed back from release twice now and has also been renamed - devil's night as to avoid any confusion.


 -
mischief night (2014).


anyone had the opportunity to check either of these out yet?

It's not very often that I really like a modern horror. But surprisingly last year I enjoyed a few in the cinema. There was Oculus, Horns, As Above So Below, Annabelle and Deliver Us From Evil. I really enjoyed Sinister the other year too.

I liked Sinister a lot. Oculus was well made and acted but wasn't very suspensful and didn't do anything for me. Horns started out well and fell apart by the third act. The re-imaging of The Town That Dreaded Sundown started out even better with the coolest meta-plot ever but then, sadly, degenerated into just a generic slasher film.

I thought Almost Human (2013) was pretty cool :

Trailer : www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkJdN2iBOBg

And although opinions vary wildly, i also liked Under The Skin (2013) with Scarlett Johansson.

The town that dreaded sundown reboot,I'd more or less forgot about that one,I first saw the trailer for it what seems like an absolute age ago.

It's taking what seems like forever to reach these shores!

That is the trouble with most modern horror that even if it starts with a bang you can more or less guarantee it will probably end with a whimper!

I didn't dislike deliver us from evil either Helen.

Another one i sincerely enjoyed was V/H/S 2 (2013) .. I thought it was awesome !

The trailer sums up the carnage pretty accurately : www.youtube.com/watch?v=dW5H-u0ukqs

I have yet to see the third one, V/H/S Viral, which got mostly negative reviews...

but hey, that never stopped me before ! [Big Grin]

After.Life I thought was another "near miss," Helen. I saw part of it again here recently, and I do appreciate that it tries very hard to do something different in the genre, but overall, I guess I wasn't buying the concept, ambiguous as it was. The director is someone to watch, however.

JR, I loved Under the Skin, although as you alluded to, it's one of those things that you will either really like or absolutely despise; there's no middle ground whatsoever. I thought that it was an unforgettable film up in the lofty realm of The Man Who Fell to Earth and the films of David Lynch. It really, truly creeped me out, and I think that Scarlett Johansson was spectacularly good. That said, I can still understand why so many people hate it. I'm not sure if I've ever seen a movie on IMDB.com that is so evenly split between "10's" and "1's." [Smile]

Aww, I found After.life even more gripping second time around. And depressing, yay! [Razz]

F (2010) was a good little film. Totally wasn't what I was expecting. It was quite intense and creepy at times.

i thought after.life was a not to bad horror/mystery,though i did have to watch the trailer again to jog my memory a bit.

my wife said she can recollect it quite well,she gave it the thumbs up.

2009 this came out,i'm starting to think either a lot of these modern horrors are actually none to memorable,or it's either that or i'm suffering from short term memory loss!

it takes a lot for me not to watch a movie all the way through to its very end ,no matter how bad it is,but i lasted about 25 minutes with this low budget,actually let me rephrase that no budget 2014 horror - hazard jack.

total crud,there's no other word for it!

pleased this was something i recorded of the horror channel and not a rental,i think the rental fee alone would of made me cry.

"fear has a new name"

i can think of a few names but none of them are suitable for a family website!

anyone out there eagerly awaiting another entry in the amityville series?

amityville - the awakening (2015) starring bella thorne (blended),jennifer jason leigh and kurtwood smith.

http://youtu.be/pCN3Ouo-Hys - amityville the awakening trailer


 -


this has already been put back from its original release date and as of now has been put on hold,so it's not off to the most promising of starts.

i'll probably give it a watch when it does finally turn up,the fact it's got the great kurtwood smith as well as jennifer jason leigh in the cast I'd imagine that it can't be all bad.


my favourite from the series so far is amityville 2 - the possesion closely followed by the (1979)original,amityville 3 was watchable but dissapointing when compared with what had come before.

Not seen much in the way of the many direct to video sequels that followed.

Did see the 2005 remake though which I thought was OK.

Just got this one a couple weeks ago. I'm a huge horror fan and gotta say this made my top 10 horror dvd releases of 2014. It's a low budget movie that doesn't feel low budget at all. Plus how can you go wrong with Debbie Rochon and Tiffany Shepis in the same movie. Anyone else see this one?

i enjoyed as above so below,i thought it was pretty decent overall,liked the setting of the paris catacombs,very eerie!

wouldn't say the movie featured anything overly scary or anything but there was one very effective jump scare,it was one of those scenes where you guessed what was going to happen but it still made you jump right out of your skin anyway.

the movie also moves at a fair click especially once they reach the underground tunnels and i won't go into to much detail but i loved the final shots where they flipped everything on its head.

yeah not bad at all,i'd give it a 7/10.
