Underworld
Given that Kate Beckinsale has already starred in four Underworld movies -- and that the series seemed to be moving on without her for next year's Beckinsale-free Underworld: Next Generation, starring Theo James -- it seemed somewhat safe to assume that she'd wedged herself into that black bodysuit for the final time.

Guillermo del Toro Expects Good News On Pan's Labyrinth Musical

Guillermo del Toro
Guillermo del Toro has several upcoming movies in the works, including Crimson Peak, Pacific Rim 2 and a small independent movie he plans to make in between. He’s on television with FX’s series of The Strain, and he produced the animated film The Book of Life in theaters this week.

Right now, audiences can see James Wan's horror spin-off prequel Annabelle, which focuses on the story of the creepy doll glimpsed in The Conjuring. The film offers some decent scares, but it's mostly a formulaic story of demon possession and supernatural events that we've seen before. So MTV decided to freshen things up by taking some footage to Toy Story and mashing it up with the teaser trailer for Annabelle. The result is a very creepy and scary Woody that will never have you look at the cowboy the same way again.

‘Annabelle’ Review: Demons, Dolls and a Magical Negro, Oh My! Warner Bros. Certain images come pre-loaded with an inherent creepiness — identical twins, clowns, dolls, identical ginger clown dolls — but while their presence guarantees some degree of an unsettling atmosphere they’re not actually all that scary. It’s a fine distinction perhaps, but it’s enough to make one leery at the idea of a horror film built around a doll.

The Hive
The Hive, the first feature film from Dave Yarovesky, premiered at Fantastic Fest. To help bring some attention to the film, Yarovesky’s filmmaker friend James Gunn attended the premiere and led a Q&A with Yarovesky after the film. “It’s a blast,” Gunn said of the film. “It’s an amazing looking film and it’s probably the most horrifying love story I’ve ever seen.”

Review: Annabelle

JoBlo - Fri, 2014-10-03 08:21

Review: Annabelle PLOT: A young family, reeling from a violent attack, start experiencing strange phenomena after they buy a creepy doll that seems to have a life of its own. REVIEW: THE CONJURING was one of those pleasant summer surprises, in that it was a deliberately old fashioned, extremely effective little thriller with an unapologetic R-rating and a top-flight cast. It had style and it had substance. One of the most... Read More...

Annabelle Review

IGN Movies - Thu, 2014-10-02 09:00

A prequel to 2013's fact-based horror hit The Conjuring, Annabelle tells the "origin" of that movie's possessed doll. Culling elements from Rosemary's Baby, The Conjuring, and Insidious, Annabelle isn't a Chucky-style killer doll movie but rather the umpteenth movie in recent memory about demonic possession. The aptly named Annabelle Wallis stars as (no, not Annabelle) Mia, a possible nod to Rosemary's Baby star Mia Farrow. Like Rosemary, Mia spends most of the movie pregnant and dealing with supernatural forces at play in her apartment building.
