Trailer – Sinister 2

Sinister 2, the follow up to the 2012 horror hit, is in UK cinemas August 21, 2015. In the aftermath of the shocking events in Sinister, a protective mother (Shannyn Sossamon) and her 9-year-old twin sons find themselves in a rural house marked for death.

First Impressions: I really liked Sinister and this looks pretty much the same as before, which isn’t a bad thing, the only difference is that the director Ciaran Foy wants to show the evil Buhguul more.

*thanks to Entertainment one for the trailer

Trailer: Deliver us From Evil trailer 2

NY police officer Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana), investigates a series of crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest (Edgar Ramirez), schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the possessions that are terrorizing their city.

Impressions: I like the look of this, Scott Derrickson who directed Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose seems to know what he is doing when it comes to the world of the creepy horror film, this looks like it’s following suit but on more of a grander scale.  It’s also nice to see Eric Bana in a horror movie

Trailer – Rec 4: Apocalypse

The young reporter Ángela is rescued from the building and taken to an oil tanker to be examined. However, it is unbeknown to the soldiers that she carries the seed of the mysterious demonic virus.

First Impressions: I’m a huge fan of the Rec series, i even came around to liking the third one so i for one cannot wait for this, yes the trailer is a bit sparse however if a trailer that shows you very little gets you interested then that’s a good thing.

The film should be out by the end of the year and hopefully it gets the release it deserves

Trailer – As Above, So Below

A thriller centered on two archaeologists in search of a lost treasure in the catacombs below Paris.

First Impressions: From the directors of the American remake of Rec, Quarantine, comes this creepy horror film that plays on your fears, this is a area of horror i enjoy as it normally results in a more creepy feeling film.

The trailer has me really interested as it looks like a cross between The Descent and and bits of Rec (without the zombies), we will see how it turns out at the end of the year.

Trailer – Afflicted

Two best friends see their trip of a lifetime take a dark turn when one of them is struck by a mysterious affliction. Now, in a foreign land, they race to uncover the source before it consumes him completely.

Impression – Looking like a cross between REC and Chronicle this film looks very interesting, i know it’s another shaky cam found footage movie and we don’t need any more of them however if it is a cross between the two movies i have said then this might turn out to be good.

Trailer – Enemy

A man seeks out his exact look-alike after spotting him in a movie.

Impression: From the director of last years excellent Prisoners, Denise Villeneuve comes a really strange tight thriller that looks very impressive, early word from critics are saying that it has one of the most shocking endings of a film in the last five years and this has peeked my interest.

Yes i know the trailer is a bit bare but if you pay attention to whats going on it starts to creep on your skin which is a big thumbs up in my opnion

Trailer – Oculus

A woman tries to exonerate her brother, who was convicted of murder, by proving that the crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon.

Impression: The film stars Karen Gillan (Doctor Who) and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) and it looks pretty interesting, i really like the style of the film and with it coming from Jason Blum you know it’s going to be a success seeing as he has a 100% record so far for movies that he producers taking more than there budget.

Trailer: Insidious Chapter 2

The haunted Lambert family seeks to uncover the mysterious childhood secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world.

Impression: I really liked the first film despite it’s insane last 10 minutes and this looks like it will build on it.  The only sad thing is that this is James Wan’s last horror film for a little while as he is off doing the next Fast and Furious film.
