Upcoming Horror Movies

Here's a few upcoming movies that I know I cant wait to find out more about....

Saw II. Serial killer Jigsaw is back, only this time instead of locking up two people in a room, he's got eight victims. They're all complete strangers and must play a disturbing game to determine who, if anyone, survives.
Starring: Donnie Wahlberg, Franky G., Glenn Plummer, Emmanuelle Vaugier, Beverley Mitchell, Eric Knudsen, Shawnee Smith, Dina Meyer, Tobin Bell
Release Date: Oct. 28, 2005 (is subject to change)
Offical Site: Here
It'll be interesting to see if it can stand up to the first Saw movie. I might wait for this to come out on dvd instead of going into the cinema to see it. Not too keen on sequels.

The Fog. This is a remake of John Carpenter's 1980 horror-thriller. Release date, that I know of, is Oct this year. I don't know much more about it at this time. Once I find out more, I post it for you all. Until then, you can take a look at the "The Fog" website
Like sequels, I'm not too keen on remakes. I own John Carpenter's The Fog on dvd and I'm interested to see if it can live up to it. With more special effects and the such these days, some movies/remakes tend to go overboard with the effects. I've only even seen a few remakes that I've actually enjoyed

Silent Hill. Based on the playstation computer game. Which I can proudly say I completed in 2 days! (borrowed it from someone who had been stuck on one stage for 3 months...later that day I got past that certain stage; for those who've played the was the piano stage) Anyway...there's more about it here. Release date is set for April 21, 2006 (which is subject to change)

Creepshow 3. Now THIS I cant wait to see! I've been an avid fan of Creepshow for many years and only recently obtained both Creepshow 1 and 2 on dvd. Reminded me of my childhood (yes, I was a horror fan from a very early age. My mum says that when she was pregnant with me, she would beg my dad to take her to see horror movies and while they were watching them, I would kick nonestop. Needless to say, I've watched alot of horror movies) Release date will be sometime in 2006. There has been a couple of pictures shown from the movie, which can be looked at here and here. There is also a website and that can be looked at here. The bloody actress is Stephanie Pettee, who appears in the segment titled “Alice.” The other picture I have no details on. Sorry. It's the third installment of the George Romero/Stephen King-launched anthology series. The film, which neither King nor Romero have anything to do with (same goes for original series producer Richard Rubinstein), follows the format of the 1982 first film and features five creepy new stories. (Derived from King/Romero leftovers, 1987’s CREEPSHOW 2 boasted only three tales). When I find out more info, I'll post away, I promise. So keep an eye out for updates!
