5 of the Most Anticipated Horror Films of 2014


If you've seen any of Álex de la Iglesia previous movies - 'The Last Circus,' 'The Day Of The Beast,' 'The Baby's Room' and then take a look at this insane red-band trailer for his latest 'Witching & Bitching,' then you'll understand why we're so excited for this one. While this one doesn't exactly fall under the catagory of "horror," it's wacky sensabilities should appeal to genre fans. (Heads up, the below trailer is in Spanish with no subtitles. But you won't need 'em!) IFC Midnight picked this one up and plans a theatrical/VOD release later this year.


After 'Sinister,' consider us "in" with anything director Scott Derrickson has got in store. And he's following up that monster hit (which in itself is also getting a sequel) with 'Deliver Us From Evil,' formally 'Beware The Night,' in which a New York City cop investigates a series of heinous crimes involving the occult and demonic possession! Eric Bana, Olivia Munn and Joe McHale lead the cast and although the film was originally slated for a January 2015 release, Sony was so impressed with how the movie is coming together that they've bumped it up to the prime summer slot of July 2nd!


There were only a few screenings of Eli Roth's 4th feature film 'The Green Inferno,' which marks his return to the horror genre in the form of cannibal exploitation cinema! And of the people that have seen it, they seem to be on polar opposite sides. Some loved it for it's over-the-top humor and gore. Other hated it. Regardless, it'll be interesting to see how American audiences embrace Roth's loving homage to films like 'Cannibal Holocaust' when it arrives in theaters September 5th. You can read Scott Weinberg's early review of 'The Green Inferno' for a tease.

[REC] 4: APOCALYPSE (Oct 10th)

While '[Rec] 3' was a prequel to the first two films, the upcoming '[Rec] 4: Apocalypse' is back in sequel territory and follows immediately after the events of '[Rec] 2.' Not much is known yet about what director Jaume Balagueró has in store, but it's nice to have Manuela Velasco back as Ángela Vidal after her absence from the last movie. This teaser trailer below did recently surface on-line, although it doesn't give us any footage from the sequel just yet.


Production recently wrapped on the 'Poltergeist' remake/sequel with Gil Kenan ('Monster House') in the director's chair and Sam Raimi ('Evil Dead') producing. All has been quiet as they continue to put the movie together in post-production, but we do know that Sam Rockwell ('Moon'), Rosemarie DeWitt and Jared Harris star and it's currently slated for a November 14th release. More on the new 'Poltergeist' as soon as we hear it.
