Let's get it on!
1. Annabelle (October 8, 2014)
Two reasons I'm really excited for this: one, it actually involves a doll (Who doesn't get creeped out by their glassy eyes and always smiling porcelain faces? You? Okay then. Moving on.); and two, it's based on a true story. YES. Annabelle actually exists beyond the theatre screen. You can read about her history here.
I had a ton of porcelain dolls when I was a little girl, and the thought that any of them could've been alive without my then infant brain knowing... wow. I wonder how I would've reacted if I grasped this as a kid. Awesome. Stoked Level 5/5.
2. Dracula Untold (October 15, 2014)
Every bloodline has a beginning. That's the movie's tagline, as printed on the poster, and it's a bit intriguing. Personally, I know nothing of what to expect in this film other than the fact that it deals with the origins of Dracula. Not as excited as I am for Annabelle though, but I don't know. I'm really just interested at the tagline and Dracula's involvement. Hahaha. I've read enough of Bram Stoker's Dracula to spark an interest.
Other than those few reasons, there's nothing much motivating me to watch this film. Stoked Level 1/5.
3. Ouija (October 24, 2014)
Oh my gosh. This. The title of this movie just spells out the experiences and thrills I sought with my friends during primary school. Not to be all dark, but the occult has always been a field of interest for me. Anyone who's known me for a while would agree when I say I am always down for a good scare.
There was this one time after class that me and a few of my friends decided to play with the Ouija board. I was just starting to catch an interest for these type of things and figured it wouldn't hurt to try. Well, to cut to the point, it didn't end well enough for us to try again. We got a real fright when the wind began blowing so hard into the windows, and a friend started crying. We grabbed our stuff and got the hell out of there.
Stoked Level 5/5. Obviously.
4. The Pyramid (December 5, 2014)
Typical plot about being trapped underground and realizing they are also being hunted/haunted by something. It's impressive how writers can recreate the same plot over and over and come out with a movie like this.
I really have nothing to say about this. There's very little information right now, so I'm hoping this won't be a big disappointment on my end (and other horror fans). You see, it's not about the gore and the blood and the monsters - it's all about how real this would feel, how probable it would be for us normal humans to experience something similar. Stoked Level 3/5.
5. Demonic (December 12, 2014)
I feel like the plot for this movie is the most typical. The story's simply about a police officer and a psychologist who investigate the deaths of five people who died while summing ghosts. I mean, with this purpose, you've got to be a turd to not know how negative this is going to end.
But, like most stereotypical movies, it's one that's an automatic "to-watch", probably to see how it compares to similar movies. Stoked Level 3/5.
(Note: I couldn't find an official image for this. There were some on Google images, but I wasn't sure which was which. Even IMDB had no image.)
6. Amityville: The Awakening (January 2, 2015)
OMG! I'm a huge fan of the Amityville horrors (not how and why the original story happened, of course)! This is sooo exciting for me! I just hope they don't screw it up like they did with the other Amityville remake. But yeeaahhh!
The plot sounds too obvious to the fact that these victims can't really defend themselves (especially now that it only involves a single mother and 3 children). Stoked Level 4/5.
