For only our second movie trailers post, we are going horror style to help promote and observe the great holiday of Halloween. I have a few horror movie trailers for you guys to check out which means I have some that are coming out soon and some we can expect next year.

Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension– I had always wondered where they were going to take this series next and they certainly found a way to make yet another sequel. A guy finds all the VHS tapes and wants to start investigating. He finds a camera that allows you to see the activity so for the first time ever we’ll actually see the ghosts and stuff. It looks pretty decent in my opinion and most likely I will end up seeing this in theaters when it comes out on October 23RD.

The Witch– Ever since I saw the poster for this film, I was instantly intrigued by it and I wanted to know more. It’s set in 1600’s New England as they are torn apart by witchcraft, black magic and other madness. It says 1630 as the year, so I don’t think it’s necessarily in Salem, but just from watching the trailer, this could be a contender for horror film of the year. Expect the film to be released on February 26, 2016.

The Forest– Apparently beneath Mount Fuji, there is a forest that people go to commit suicide so it’s safe to say that it’s a very haunted and messed up place. Natalie Dormer (The Hunger Games) sense that her twin sister is in trouble and finds out that she went to the forest. So, she basically goes after her and you can probably tell what happens next in this story. The film drops January 8, 2016.

Amityville: The Awakening– Most of Hollywood will do whatever it takes to continue to bleed a franchise especially one like The Amityville Horror franchise. A mother moves her kids into a house not knowing it’s haunted and so on and so forth. It’s expects to be released in April 2016.

lords of salemI decided to watch this film one more time so that I could give it a more defined critique then I did the first time. I’m doing it because of the fact that when I left the movie theater I was at a loss of words for what I had just witnessed on the silver screen. The film is called The Lords Of Salem and it looks at the idea of what if the accused witches of Salem were really witches. Heidi (Sherri Moon Zombie) is a radio DJ at one of the local radio stations in Salem where she receives a mysterious package containing a record addressed from the Lords. One day, Heidi and her crew decide to play the record not knowing that the record when played has an effect on the women of Salem. After playing the record, Heidi starts to have weird visions and it appears that the Lords Of Salem are back for revenge on the town of Salem. The movie also stars Meg Foster (They Live), Bruce Davison (X-Men), Jeff Daniel Phillips (Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2), Judy Geeson (To Sir, With Love), Patricia Quinn (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), Ken Foree (Dawn Of The Dead), Maria Conchita Alonso (The Running Man), and Dee Wallace (Cujo).

lords 2Rob has always had a pension for the extreme in all of his films and this one is no different. It may not be a gore fest like his previous films, but a scene in where a woman’s unborn child is cut from the womb could qualify for what I was talking about. I also found seeing the witches in the beginning naked very disturbing as they are a sight for sore eyes. The film is definitely more psychological and supernatural in it’s nature rather than the slasher flicks we had been used to from Rob. Meg Foster definitely plays a good witch in the film as she is very convincing and the imagery is super satanic. There’s enough imagery in the film like the priest forcing Heidi to give him a blowjob in church, the goat, and the beast himself. One thing that I didn’t like is that I didn’t understand the ending of the film the first time I watched it and this is a spoiler alert do not read on if you haven’t’ seen the film yet. I understand that she was summoned to the other side by the lords of Salem and she looks like she gives birth to the beast, but why have all the woman died? We are told that they are the Salem historical society and descendants of the original village, but why a mass suicide? Those are just questions that I still have after watching the film. Anyways, check out the film for yourself and make your own decisions on what you believe. I am giving the film a B- only for the fact that I like that it was filmed on location in Salem, MA and that they have images of Salem for you to look at in the end credits.
