Man, a lot of changes have come down as to when you’re going to see the most anticipated horror films of the near future according to Box Office Mojo. Not sure why it’s happened all of a sudden, but the dates they are a changin’.
First up, Magnolia has decided that The Signal (review) will fare better in limited release against Saw IV than Hatchet so has switched its date from September 7th to October 26th. Neither one makes a lot of sense to me, but as long as you guys go out and see it when it does get released, I’ll be happy. It’s a damn fine little film!
Picturehouse has moved Amusement, the horror film about three women being stalked by a sadistic killer from their past, from a January 11th release to March 28th, and two of the bigger genre releases of next year have swapped spots: Hellboy 2: The Golden Army is now set for a July 11th, 2008 release, and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (apparently its new title) will hit on August 1st.
Finally, on the good news front, MGM has picked up the faux documentary The Poughkeepsie Tapes for a release on February 22nd, 2008. We’ve got some exclusive footage from Tribeca to show off for the film soon so keep your eyes peeled for that, but for now you can learn more about it via our Tribeca preview piece!
