Horror Box Office – OPENING THIS WEEK: October 27, 2017

Published

on

Welcome back, everyone.  I’m changing the format a bit for this article going forward.  As VOD titles usually come out on Tuesdays to match the DVD schedule, this article will begin listing upcoming VOD list dates as opposed to VOD dates from a few days prior to publication.  Therefore, included in this article are the VOD and theatrical releases from October 24th AS WELL AS the VOD and theatrical releases through October 31st.

Okay, enough with the business aspect of things.  Let’s get down to the fun stuff.  This week sees Jigsaw hitting the box office, so leave your squeamish friends at home.

Annabelle: Creation hit the VOD market on October 24th, so you can check it out from the comfort of your own couch.  No need to get all…. wait for it… dolled up to go to the movies.  Get it?

There is also a modernized version of Nosferatu hitting theaters on October 31st.  Grab some candy, and get your freaky vampire thing on for Halloween!

Click on the titles below for full coverage, and remember to check back every Thursday at 10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET for updates.

Just the other day we shared with you guys an exclusive interview with Partick Brice, the director of the Mark Duplass-starring found footage flicks Creep and Creep 2.

Today we have the awesome news that the killer sequel Creep 2 will be hitting Netflix streaming on December 23rd.

The original creeptastic motion picture is already streaming on Netflix so if you need to catch up – or just watch the original again – you can do so tonight and get ready for the sequel which, personally, I found to be superior (if even just slightly) to the original.

What did you think of the original film? Are you excited to check out the sequel? Or have you already seen it? Make sure to let us know in the comments below or on social media!

Creep 2 starring Mark Duplass and Desiree Akhavan hits Netflix December 23rd!

She drives to a remote house in the forest and meets a man claiming to be a serial killer (Mark Duplass, reprising his role from the previous film). Unable to resist the chance to create a truly shocking piece of art, she agrees to spend the day with him.

I Already Have a Dog But Now I Want a Baby Dinosaur

Published

on

The first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World, is rumored to be attached to Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Since that film is going to be coming out in less than a month, it’s no surprise that the marketing campaign for the dino-filled trailer is already starting and today it kicks off with a six-second teaser that is as adorable as you can get!

In the teaser, Chris Pratt’s Owen Grady is petting a baby velociraptor, which coos and twitters in the cutest of fashions. Is there anything else going on? Nah. Does something else need to happen? Nope. The movie already has me sold.

Directed by J.A. Bayona (When a Monster Calls), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, B.D. Wong, and Toby Jones. However, the biggest and most important star of the film will be the return of Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm, who is, in my humble opinion, the best character in the franchise, besting even the T-rex that seemingly cannot die.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will evolve into theaters on June 22, 2018.
