I periodically go to my favorite horror movie site upcominghorrormovies.com and check on what's coming up. Luckily, since horror is the "in" thing, more quality moviemakers and actors are jumping on the bandwagon. Here's three promising upcoming horror movies I'm going to have to check out:
Release: December 2010
Director: Clint Eastwood
Actors: Bryce Dallas Howard, Clint Eastwood
Tells the story of three people -- a blue-collar American, a French journalist and a London school boy — who are touched by death in different ways
Director: Jim Sheridan
Actors: Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts
Revolves around a family that moves to a small town in Connecticut and learns that a mother and her two young children had been killed in their home. The killings were believed to be at the hands of the husband, who survived and may now be a threat to the new residents.
Survival of the Dead
Release: Limited May 28, 2010
Director: George Romero
Actors: Alan Van Sprang, Kenneth Welsh, Kathleen Munroe, Devon Bostick, Richard Fitzpatrick, Stefano Colacitti, Athena Karkanis
On a small island off North America's coast, the dead rise to menace the living. Yet, the islanders can't bring themselves to exterminate their loved ones despite the growing danger from those they once held dear. A rebel among them hunts down all the zombies he can find only to be banished from the island for assassinating his neighbors and friends. On the mainland, bent on revenge, he encounters a small band of survivors in in search of an oasis on which to build a new life. Barely surviving an attack from a mass of ravenous flesh-eaters they commandeer a zombie-infested ferry and sail to the island. There, to their horror, they discover the locals have chained the dead inside their homes, pretending to live "normal" lives...with bloody consequences. What ensues is a desperate struggle for survival and the answer to a question never posed in Romero's Dead films: Can the living ever live in peace with the dead?
