The original "based on a true story" horror story, 'The Amityville Horror,' inspired countless adaptations, sequels, prequels and remakes, including the 2005 version starring Ryan Reynolds. Now, after nearly a decade of silence, the franchise is back with the arrival of the 'Amityville: The Awakening' trailer, which moves Jennifer Jason Leigh and a handful of children into that evil haunted house.
Few horror franchises have bottomed out quite as quickly as 'The Ring,' which went from one of the scariest movies of the '00s to one of the worst horror sequels ever made. How bad was 'The Ring Two'? It took a series that felt like a sure thing and put it into hibernation for the better part of a decade. But you can only keep a well-dwelling, VHS-loving, long-haired girl ghost down for so long! We knew that 'The Ring 3D' was in the works, but now an Academy Award winning screenwriter is being brought on board to work on the script.
Fresh 'Walking Dead' has been hard to come by since the season 5 trailer debut at Comic-Con 2014, but the season 4 Blu-Ray (hey, you can win one of those!) continually spills out fresh guts goodies for fans. Two more season 4 deleted scenes have arrived, showing that the road to Terminus, for Rick, Carl, Carol, Tyreese and Michonne may have been more deadly than we got to see.
Warner Bros. released the full-length 'Annabelle' trailer, which does not hide the origins of its titular demonic doll. Yes, this is the same doll that left a huge impression on audiences in 'The Conjuring,' and, yes, we're going to get to see exactly how this creepy thing came into being. Considering that 'The Conjuring' is one of the most successful and acclaimed horror movies of all time, this is probably a smart angle to take.
The teaser trailer for 'The Woman in Black: Angel of Death' puts the emphasis on the tease, showing off very little actual footage but a whole lot of atmosphere. And that's for the best: with no big name star this time around, the sequel is going to sell itself on its horror, not the fact that a grown-up Harry Potter is leading the show.
It just wouldn't be October without 'American Horror Story''s latest FX spookfest, and 2014 is no different. The 'Freak Show' has officially set its October premiere for season 4 of the Ryan Murphy-helmed horror series, debuting a brand-new teaser, and returning Jessica Lange and all your old favorites for another round of campy scares.
There's always plenty of Stephen King adaptations in the works, but here's one based on a story you might not be as familiar with -- and as a bonus, King himself wrote the screenplay. 'A Good Marriage' appears to examine a marriage through King's grisly lens, and the suburbs are looking pretty deadly.
It's been a while since we've heard anything about a new installment in the 'Halloween' franchise, but it's still alive and kicking just like its unstoppable villain. Formerly titled 'Halloween 3D,' Dimension films is moving ahead with the newly retitled 'Halloween: The Next Chapter' -- just has a better ring to it.
Reactions have been somewhat mixed toward FX's Guillermo del Toro vampire thriller, 'The Strain,' but if you thought the network would look to contain a spread like that, you're sadly mistaken. 'The Strain' will officially continue to infect TV sets through 2015, having been renewed for a second season of post-apocalyptic horror.
The Disney Channel's long-running 'Phineas and Ferb' has managed some impressive guest stars and tribute episodes in recent years, but its latest get is a slice of fried gold. Ten years after its release, 'Shaun of the Dead' stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have announced that iconic zombie-killers Ed and Shaun will return in animated form for a forthcoming Halloween special of 'Phineas and Ferb.'
