Horror Films Releasing Before Halloween

While we’re still all excited about the release of John Carpenter’s Halloween, let’s look forward to the other films coming to theaters this October. (After all, we can’t all wear the same Halloween costumes  we need a wide range of hot new ideas.) Unfortunately, besides the unique exception of Halloween‘s re-release, it appears that this year lacks the usual familiar faces of iconic horror – Jason, Freddy, Chucky, Leatherface, and so forth. Not exactly a bad thing, but something to note. Regardless, I hope you have some friends who love horror as much as you, because this year’s October film release line-up has some horror gems.


The Unleashed October 5

With a synopsis as large as this movie has, I don’t even need to say anything. It’s a horror, it’s coming out in October, and it features possession. Truthfully, it looks only okay. Nothing spectacular.

Synopsis: Madison Kennard, a troubled woman dealing with her dark past, must venture home after an 8 year absence following her mothers death. Almost instantly after her return, Madison must cope with the haunting memories of a childhood best forgotten. Lindsay, a childhood friend of Madisons with an adventurous nature, hears of Madison’s arrival and has every intention of reconnecting a friendship once had. Bizarre and unexplainable events occur within the house after old friends come together and dabble with the infamous Ouija board. Lindsay, being all too curious of the board and its undeniable power, gives into the persuasion of an unknown entity and allows it to possess her. Madison must overpower her deepest fears and find a way to release Lindsay and abolish the presence that haunts her.


Frankenweenie October 5

Although not a traditional horror film meaning an adult horror film Frankenweenie brings the tale of Frankenstein to mainstream theaters, using a child-like story to tell the tale. Maybe I’m getting too old, maybe I’ve lost my childhood whimsy, but this movie looks like an instantaneous pass. However, Tim Burton is both the director and one of the six yes, six writers behind the film, so I may be passing judgment too soon. (Before one claims that I dislike the film due to its childish art direction, I would like to point out that ParaNorman managed to tell a great child-like horror story using cartoonish graphics.)

Synopsis: Young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences.


Sinister October 12

Sinister’sviral marketing has been popping up all over the Internet. From health warnings to new posters, someone is pushing this movie hard. Reading over the synopsis, though, I feel this film has a creative premise worthy of my money: found footage viewed not by the audience but by the characters, who then become haunted by supernatural horror. I’ll definitely be seeing this one.

Synopsis: Found footage helps a true-crime novelist realize how and why a family was murdered in his new home, though his discoveries put his entire family in the path of a supernatural entity.


Paranormal Activity 4 October 19

According to IMDB, the plot for Paranormal Activity 4 is currently unreleased. Yeah, okay, like anyone who’s seen the previous films couldn’t guess the next plot. Let’s see. I’m guessing it involves camera footage, an invisible demon, maybe some kids, and a husband/wife team that ends up dissolving due to one of them not believing the other about the invisible demon, with the arguments leading to one of them becoming possessed and killing the other.

Synopsis: The plot is undisclosed at this time.


Silent Hill: Revelation 3D October 26

While I disagree with the current 3D trend running deep in Hollywood’s veins, I’m interested in seeing how these visual elements play out in Silent Hill: Revelation.

Synopsis: When her father disappears, Heather Mason is drawn into a strange and terrifying alternate reality that holds answers to the horrific nightmares that have plagued her since childhood.
