Here is a list of my top 5 most anticipated horror releases in the last quarter of 2014, the following list is in no particular order!

 

ANNABELLE – October 3rd 

Everyone alive is interested in seeing this tie in to the adored James Wan creeper The Conjuring. Annabelle, that creepy doll that spooked us in the film is back to make us all sh*t our pants again in her own flick this October. John R. Leonetti is tapped to direct this chiller, Creepy dolls and Halloween madness seem like a very appropriate fit. We’ll find out if these two can coexist on the level we’re all hoping for next month.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN – October 16thThe Town That Dreaded Sundown

Yet another remake, which is always a scary proposition on it’s own regardless of the content of the film, but The Town that Dreaded Sundown is a film that horror fans either know intimately, or missed altogether. We’re all hoping this reboot is really great, but even if it’s not maybe it’s existence will inspire more fans to seek out the original. I think this will be a gem for the horror remakes! I can feel it!

 

 

V/H/S VIRAL – October 23rd

This is another anthology offering horror shorts, and the success of the first and second installments prompted a quick sequel and an exciting trip to the Cannes festival to show it off. While the name is still fresh in horror fan’s minds this one will certainly have some play, especially now that it’s escalated to a bonafide franchise. Lets hope the third installment can follow suit and keep up the awesomeness the first and second movies had!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HORNS – October 31st Horns Poster

Is the long anticipated adaptation of Joe Hill’s bestselling novel of the same name going to live up to expectations? Can Daniel Radcliffe successfully front a picture of this nature? Will the damn thing be as creepy as we’re hoping? The curious will receive their answers on Halloween! I hope it lives up to the hype but wasn’t all that impressed by daniel in The Woman in Black a few years back!

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE BABADOOK – November 28th Babadock movie image

Only The Town That Dreaded Sundown rivals this one in terms of anticipation, for me. The trailer is insanely appealing, giving us a few glimpses of what could be a seriously engrossing picture. Production values look quite respectable and the tone of the feature seems to be very sinister and creepy. A couple qualities I can really dig. Of all the films on this list,The Babadook just might be the most frightening of them all.
