Looking for a good scare? Then 2015 is the year for you. The New Year will not only introduce new terror, but deliver follow ups to some fan favorite horror movies. From the chilling Christmas tale, “Krampus,” to the third installment of “Insidious” – 2015 has a scary movie for everyone to watch.
“The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death” (Jan. 2)
Sorry, no Daniel Radcliffe in this movie. While the “Harry Potter” actor was featured in the first flick, the second installment of “The Woman in Black” will look to tell a haunting tale without British star. “Angel of Death” will take place 40 years after the first film, and will tell the story of a group of children who arrive at the Eel Marsh House after being forced to evacuate London in World War II. The synopsis on IMDB teases that upon their arrival the children will “awaken the house’s darkest inhabitant.”
“Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension” (Mar. 13)
The “Paranormal Activity” franchise is showing no signs of slowing down. The sixth film in the series is titled “The Ghost Dimension” and will follow a different family as they move into their new home. Actress Katie Featherston, who has appeared in all five “Paranormal Activity” films, will reprise her role as “Katie.”
“What We Do In The Shadows” (Feb. 13)
“What We Do In The Shadows” is a horror flick that offers some laughs. The movie is about three roommates … who just happen to be very old vampires.
“The Lazarus Effect” (Feb. 27)
“The Lazarus Effect” features an all-star cast of Evan Peters (“American Horror Story”), Olivia Wilde (“House”), Sarah Bolger (“Once Upon a Time”), Mark Duplass (“The League”) and Donald Glover (“Community”). Reportedly shot as “found-footage,” this thriller is about a group of med students who “discover a way to bring dead patients back to life.”
“Insidious: Chapter 3” (June 5)
“Insidious” began as a chilling tale in 2010 – but how does the story truly begin? The third installment will be a prequel that focuses on psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye). Viewers will get to see Elise’s story prior to the Lambert family haunting.
“The Gallows” (July 10)
The plot line for “The Gallows” is being kept under wraps, but it’s from the same studio that introduced 2013’s “The Conjuring” and the 2014 spinoff “Annabelle.” Currently the only released details is that it’s a “found-footage” film set around high school students.
“Poltergeist” (July 24)
The original “Poltergeist” scared viewers when it was released in 1982, but it’s time for a remake. The new movie stars Sam Rockwell (“Seven Psychopaths”) and Rosemarie DeWitt (“United States of Tara”).
“Sinister 2” (Aug. 21)
“Sinister 2” is a follow up to the original 2012 movie. The new flick stars James Ransone (“Low Winter Sun”) and Shannyn Sossamon (“Mistresses”) and centers around a family that moves into a house that is “marked for death.”
“Kitchen Sink” (Sept. 4)
Are you a die-hard “Gossip Girl” fan who still misses Chuck Bass? Well, make sure you’re in the theater for “Kitchen Sink.” Ed Westwick stars alongside Vanessa Hudgens (“High School Musical”) in a horror-comedy about a war between vampires, humans and zombies, and the three teenagers who want to restore order in their small town.
“Crimson Peak” (Oct. 16)
Don’t miss Charlie Hunnam in his first role post “Sons of Anarchy.” His new movie, “Crimson Peak,” is about an aspiring aythor who tries to escape after a “family tragedy,” but finds that her new house “breathes, bleeds … and remembers.”
“Scouts vs. Zombies” (Oct. 30)
“Scouts vs. Zombies” is another horror-comedy hitting theaters in the New Year. The movie is about a group of Scouts who must save their town when a zombie outbreak occurs. Miley Cyrus’ beau, Patrick Schwarzenegger, will play the role of “Jeff.”
“Friday the 13th” (Nov. 13)
Jason Voorhees MIGHT return to the big screen in 2015. Although a “Friday the 13th” movie is scheduled, producer Brad Fuller teased Crave Online that the frightening killer might not be featured in the upcoming film. When asked if Derek Mears would be reprising is role as Jason, Fuller responded: “I don’t know because I don’t know if we’re going to have Jason, I don’t know which Jason we’re going to have.”
“Krampus” (Dec. 4)
This is one Christmas movie that is not a “feel good” film. “Krampus” is about a demon who punishes “naughty” people around Christmas time. “Fargo” actress Allison Tolman will star.
