October Trailer Hype

October is without a doubt my favorite time of year. Why? Among other reasons (free, guilt-free candy being one of them), it's the time of year when the most horror movies are coming out. Let's take a look at the upcoming ones. Not for the faint of heart:


I honestly didn't review the first movie (the Collector) because it was one of those run-of-the-mill horror movies and  the main character Arkin seemed like a bit of a douche-usually hiding in situations when he could have helped innocent people. And yet...something keeps pushing me to watch this one in theatres. Why did the Collector spare Arkin's life? It doesn't hurt that the actor playing Arkin seems to stands out, and the director and writer was also part of the Saw series. Seriously though, this is coming out at the end of November?

Hype rating: 3.5 out of 5.


Okay, so everyone knows the first movie was botched up (crazy Christian themes, anyone?) yet the writers seem t have gotten their act together for this one. For starters, there are males in this one (yay!). Hardcore fans will have noted the gameplay music in the movie and a couple of other nice touches which are similar to Silent Hill 3. Let's hope we're not disappointed again.
Hype meter: 4 out of 5.

I've watched the Paranormal Activity series since the beginning, so I want this to succeed. I want this to become bigger and better than the last one. So why does this seem so repetitive? Here's a thought-maybe have the cops catch Katie, put her in a jail, and then have the deamon attack the prison. That would lead the show in a new direction. Not having another random person in a random house not knowing what's going on. Four times is pushing it. Still, the series is usually guaranteed to scare us.

Hype meter: 3 out of 5.

And that's all I can think of! Any other horror movies I should keep an eye out for?
