I like the first three Insidious movies. I don’t think they’re mind-blowing, but they are really entertaining, and have some pretty effective jumpscares (even though I mostly hate jumpscares).
I was a bit disappointed that they announced there would be a fourth one, because I’m a bit tired of horror series getting long and drawn out––sometimes, you just have to end a good thing while you’re ahead.
That said, I do think this movie looks entertaining, and I’m here for Lin Shaye hunting down some demons with her geek squad duo. Even though the concept looks a little weird––I mean…a ghost/demon thing with keys for fingers? That’s a bit wacky. We shall see.
Seeing as how it’s December (a simultaneously joyful and frightening thing), I decided to peer into our horror prospects for next year. Outlook: possibly grim. While there are some releases I’m excited for, I wonder why others exist. Let’s see what’s on the docket, shall we?
Amityville: The Awakening–6 January 2017; I’m not quite sure why we’re still making Amityville movies. It might be time to let this franchise die, y’all.
The Bye Bye Man–13 January 2017; Originally, this was supposed to come out this year, but then they pushed it back. It’s too bad they didn’t come up with a better title.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter–27 January 2017; Not going to lie, I kind of love the trailer to this movie. I’m excited.
Rings–3 February 2017; Another movie that got pushed back. Still not really looking forward to this one, but–of course– I’ll be seeing it.
Get Out–24 February 2017; This is probably the movie I’m most excited for. It looks like it’s going to be amazing.
Annabelle 2–19 May 2017; Another movie whose existence I question. The first one was terrible, so why is there another one being made?
Alien: Covenant–4 August 2017; I didn’t actually know about this movie. It’ll make for a great Trailer Tuesday.
It–8 September 2017; I’m pretty excited for this remake. It could use some updating.
Friday the 13th–13 October 2017; We know nothing about this except for the release date. I remain cautious (like…do we need a remake of the remake).
Insidious: Chapter 4–20 October 2017; I don’t know how I feel about this. I thought the third Insidious movie was a great way to end the series, but I remain optimistic that Leigh Whannell could do something cool. We shall see.
Saw: Legacy–27 October 2017; Why?
Wrong Turn 7: At the End of the Road–Release Date TBD; Again, why?
Suspiria?!?! Why? There’s no information about this, but I am perturbed.
Movies that are TBA: Jeepers Creepers 3, Hellraiser: Judgement, Chucky 7, Children of the Corn: Runaway, Halloween (?!).
I don’t know how I feel. I don’t know what to feel. Let me know what you think about the possible line up. Is there anything I missed?
