The Town That Dreaded Sundown is a remake of the low-budget 1976 film of the same name, which itself was a reimagining of the murders of a still-unidentified serial killer from 1946. It’s basically the tale of an a**hole with a bag over his head that slaughters people. Here’s the trailer for the latest take, which acknowledges its predecessors to tell a decades-long story of sack-headed murder. Will you watch it?
If there’s any truth to the old saying about the value of first impressions, then Monsters: Dark Continent appears to be in good shape. Tom Green’s film looks to be completely different tonally than Gareth Edwards’ original offering, upping the level of action, the size of the cast, and the amount of monsters shown on the screen. You know what they say about sequels – go bigger or don’t bother. While this might disappoint fans of the original Monsters, it should help win over those folks who thought the first film was too subtle for its own good. Will you watch it?

You would think that characters in horror films would’ve picked up on this lesson by now; or, at the least, perform far more rigorous background checks on their newly-acquired real estate than they generally do.

Horror movie Annabelle is entirely about the possessed doll that was featured in The Conjuring. She’s scary in her own right, but the trailer kind of has me asking, if you’re filling your house with horrifying, definitely possessed dolls… aren’t you bringing this doll rampage upon yourself? Case in point, the husband comes in with the gigantic Annabelle doll stating, “I’m sure I threw this away,” or whatever. The logical response is to smash said doll with a hammer, bless the remains with holy water and then burn the entire room it was in to the ground. Annabelle will hit theaters on Oct. 3rd.
