Horror News Network’s Winter 2020 Movie Preview

After a lackluster fall, it appears that the offerings for horror fans in the coldest months of the year will be more robust with eight films being released in the genre over the course of two months.  As usual, the choices range from recognizable re-makes (The Grudge), long-delayed releases (The Turning, Brahms: The Boy II), and some odd horror re-imaginings (Gretel and Hansel, Fantasy Island).

The Grudge (January 3):  The Sam Raimi produced remake of 2004’s The Grudge (based on 2002’s Japanese import Ju-On) arrives almost six months later than its originally scheduled June of 2019 release date.   The fact that The Grudge moved from the busy summer season to the first weekend of the new year could raise some red flags, but Sony may also have made a shrewd decision to go after a horror audience that didn’t get much attention in the fall.  Sony may also be hoping for a similar outcome to last year’s Escape Room, which surprised the industry with a strong showing at the box office (making almost $100 million world wide) which was also released in the first weekend in January. read more

‘The Lodge’ Trailer Promises Chilly, Claustrophobic Horror

Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala, the directors of 2014’s ode to evil mothers everywhere, Goodnight Mommy, return to theaters this fall with The Lodge, a part claustrophobic/part supernatural thriller.

The Lodge stars Riley Keough as Grace, the stepmother-to-be of youngsters Aidan (Jaeden Martell) and Mia (Lia McHugh). When Aidan and Mia’s father Richard (Richard Armitage) is suddenly called away to the city, things start to go from bad to worse in a hurry (a lot worse than Grace refusing to play monopoly with the kids when the lights go out). read more
