It’s hard not to notice that there are no great horror films or books around this Hallowe’en, and a quick look into the crystal ball that is ImdbPro sinks the heart, for here is the roster of upcoming Hollywood horror movies to delight us in the near future.
Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde
Day of the Dead
Beauty and the Beast
Oh, and at least some of ‘Carrie’ will be based on found footage. There’s an original idea! I have a feeling I’ll find the prettified, sexualised image of underage Carrie more disturbing than anything in the film.
This stack of tired old retreads is just the projected horror output from two studios – I lost the will to check the others. Have we really reached a point where everything must be remade, rebooted or anglicised? If anyone has read or seen anything rare and new lately, let me know.
