For some odd reason in past fall movie seasons, there has been a surprising dearth of horror movies. Does Hollywood not know how Halloween works? Thankfully it looks like they have wised up, because 2012 is bringing a fall movie schedule that is packed with scary flicks.
In addition to Jennifer Lawrence taking a stab at the Jamie Lee Curtis archetype, there's also plenty of creepiness involving zombies, ghosts, demons that hide in video tapes and, oh yeah, a little movie called "Paranormal Activity 4."
You can take a look at all the upcoming horror films in the slideshow below. Keep an eye out all this week for Moviefone's 2012 Fall Preview.
"[REC] 3: Genesis"
Release Date: September 7 (Limited Release and Video OnDemand)
Who's In It: Leticia Dolera, Diego Martin
What's It About? The Spanish zombie series (that inspired the American "Quarantine") gets another installment when the mysterious biblical zombie plague descends upon a luxurious wedding and the happy newlyweds must mow down the undead with a chainsaw.
Why We're Excited: The "[REC]" series have produced some of the most adrenaline-charged, relentless zombie scares of the last decade.
"House at the End of the Street"
Release Date: September 21
Who's In It: Jennifer Lawrence, Elisabeth Shue
What's It About? A newly-divorced mother and her teen daughter move to a small rural town, where the teen just happens to fall for the next-door neighbor: the lone survivor of a family brutally murdered by the sister, who then mysteriously vanished.
Why We're Excited: Every great actress needs to do a tour of "scream queen" duty and Lawrence's "Hunger Games" fans won't be shooed away by the movie's PG-13 rating.
Release Date: October 5
Who's In It: Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio
What's It About? Hawke stars as a true-crime novelist who moves his family into a house where the previous tenants were murdered. Investigating old home movies of the deceased family, he discovers a supernatural demon that lives inside the pictures and may threaten his family next.
Why We're Excited: A genuinely creepy-looking monster and some unnerving scares involving photos could make this a surprising October chiller.
Release Date: October 5 (Limited Release and Video OnDemand)
Who's In It: Joe Swanberg, Helen Rogers
What's It About? A group of criminals is hired to break into a dead man's house and steal a mysterious VHS tape. When the house is filled with a strange collection of films, the robbers are forced to watch the horrifying events recorded on each one.
Why We're Excited: "V/H/S" is probably the scariest movie of the year. Done as an anthology of "found-footage" a la "Blair Witch," a collection of horror's most promising young directors have created an unrelenting variety pack of pants-wetting terror.
"Paranormal Activity 4"
Release Date: October 19
Who's In It: Katie Featherton
What's It About? All that's been revealed about the top-secret plot is that it takes place five years after "Paranormal Activity 2" and picks up on the whereabouts of Katie and Hunter.
