Horror has always been one of my favorite movie genres. I always look for the newest horror movies coming to the big screen, and, if they seem like they’ll be scary, I head out to the theater to see them. As we all know, not every movie that has a good preview ends up being a good movie. It’s a gamble most of the time. But, there does appear to be some very good horror movies coming out this year.
OCULUS seems like it will be pretty damn scary. It comes out on April 11th, and deals with an evil force living within an antique mirror. Two people who had a traumatic encounter with the mirror when they were children, years later, attempt to prove what actually happened, to prove that the mirror itself has been responsible for a number of murders over the years. In the previews, it shows a lot of hallucination scenes that are down-right creepy. I’m sure this one will have a lot of disturbing images and jump-out-of-your-seat scenes. It’s rated R.
I’m not too sure about the next horror movie to come out: THE QUIET ONES. It will be released on April 25th. It’s about a group of students who attempt to actually create a poltergeist. The previews I’ve seen for this one don’t show too much, which is usually a good sign. It’s also labeled as a suspenseful thriller, giving me hope that the film will have a good plot. I’ll probably go see this one, as it does look pretty scary.
DELIVER US FROM EVIL, coming to theaters on July 2nd, is one that I can’t wait for. Eric Bana, one of my favorite actors, stars in this film as a man who begins to investigate a series of disturbing crimes that all point to something supernatural. Bana’s character seeks the help of an unconventional priest who is trained to perform exorcisms. I’m betting on this one being the scariest of the year and I can’t wait!
After looking through the options for this year’s horror movies – so far – these ones look like they’ll be the ones to see.
