Spooktacular October film releases

Posted by Dawn Dalton on 10:49 AM

I love a good horror flick and true to Halloween form, October is prime picking for spooktacular new releases. Not including the lighter-fare thrillers, like Taken 2 and Cross, and the kid-friendly Frankenweenie, I count five creeptastic movies crawling their way onto the big screen this month.

Here's a quick Halloween-countdown preview of what's in theatres this month. I'm betting my movie bucks will be going to V/H/S and Sinister. How about you? I admit,  though, I'm saddened there isn't a new SAW on this list.

V/H/S – Released October 5, 2012
When a group of petty criminals is hired by a mysterious party to retrieve a rare piece of found footage from a rundown house in the middle of nowhere, they soon realize that the job isn't going to be as easy as they thought.

Watch the trailer.

Hold Your Breath – Released October 5, 2012
A group of friends on a weekend camping trip find themselves being picked off one by one when one member of the group refuses to abide by the urban myth that you can breathe in evil spirits when passing cemeteries.

Sinister – Released October 10, 2012
'Sinister' is a frightening new thriller from the producer of the Paranormal Activity films and the writer-director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Ethan Hawke plays a true crime novelist who discovers a box of mysterious, disturbing home movies...

Watch the trailer.

Paranormal Activity 4 - Releases October 19, 2012
The Paranormal Activity film series continues with this fourth entry from Paramount Pictures and returning directors of the previous film, Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman.

Watch the trailer.

Silent Hill Revelation 3D – Releases October 26, 2012
In 'Silent Hill: Revelation 3D,' Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemens) and her father (Sean Bean) have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn't fully understand.

Watch the trailer.

Of course, if you can't make it to your local Cineplex, there's always the classics. Why not pop a giant bowl of popcorn and settle in for some hacking and slashing from the likes of Freddy, Jason and Michael. 

29 days until Halloween!

I don't know how you stomach it all ... says I who write poems like I do :-)

Fictional horror is easier to stomach than the real stuff :-/
Your poems aren't so much gory as they are terrifyingly real and raw. THAT, my dear, is talent.
