I just bought "Insidious" because I really enjoyed "Dead Silence" and there aren't enough moody horror movies that have tons of atmosphere, creepy dolls, and scary music. It wasn't original, but it satisfied me more than anything I've seen that's new all year.
I pre-ordered a horror movie that I have never seen. Yes, I bought it without seeing it because it's my two favorite things--Scandinavian horror and trolls! The review will be up this afternoon.
Hammer Films is back at it again (I've waited forever!!!) They know how to do moody, creepy, haunting shit. This upcoming movie is so atmospheric--I want to jump in it and live in that world. That's when a movie has me riveted--when it creates a place I want to be a part of. The remake of Sherlock Holmes and The Wolf Man did that for me, created worlds I wanted to linger in, but the plots were kind of lame. I'm hoping that this movie doesn't end up a snooze like "Turn of the Screw" or "The Others." What I see in this trailer makes me think it might end up being my favorite horror of all time. Just look at this one coming out in February, "The Woman in Black"
"Phasma Ex Machina" or "Ghost From the Machine" is one I watched the last couple years to see where it went and how it developed. I just found out it's on DVD, so guess what I just got in the mail? Just look at this trailer and tell me if you aren't curious about this one? As a ghost hunter, I'm very excited about it. I'm watching it tonight and will be reviewing it excitedly!
Here's a remake I'm willing to give a try. "Fright Night"
Here's a remake I don't think I want to see... "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark"
