Upcoming Horrors for July 2012!

Though we're already 5 days into it, it's July! So in celebration, let's talk about all the delightful horrors that are coming out this month, whether it's straight to DVD or theaters. As always, if you've already checked any of the movies out, please let me know; or if you plan on checking any out...let me know anyway! Or! If I'm missing any, let me know!


Red Lights - RELEASE DATE: July 13th, 2012
This film is directed by Rodrigo Cortes (Buried). It's about paranormal researchers who are forced to reexamine their own beliefs. So, as far I know it's a psychological thriller.


The Monitor - RELEASE DATE: July 24th, 2012
Anna and her eight-year-old son Anders are under the witness protection program after having a difficult relationship with Anders' father. So, the two move into a large apartment complex. Since the two have been through so much, Anna is very overprotective of Anders and puts a monitor in his room to keep track of him.

Soon, strange noises from other apartments appear on the monitor, and Anna overhears what might be the murder of a child! *DUM DUM DUM!* While all that is happening, Anders makes a mysterious new friend and his friend starts visiting him at weird hours with some secrets of his own.


The Hunt - RELEASE DATE: July 24th, 2012
This film is about an undercover reporter commissioned to write a story about a series of gruesome murders. His investigation leads him to a secret society of wealthy businessmen who hunt humans for money. Soon, the investigation is caught in a spiral of violence where the reporter is forced to participate in the game until he discovers that he has become the hunted.

Sounds kinda familiar!


Rites of Spring - RELEASE DATE: July 27th, 2012
A group of kidnappers abduct the daughter of a wealthy socialite and hide out in an abandoned school. But soon the feelings of guilt overtake the kidnappers, dividing the group and putting their entire plan in jeopardy.

Big surprise! Anyway, so the evening continues to spiral out of control when their hideout becomes a hunting ground for a mysterious creature that requires springtime ritualistic sacrifices.

Sounds kinda familiar! Really, it sounds like Jeepers Creepers with that whole creature & all.


Killer Joe - RELEASE DATE: July 27th, 2012
So this film is based off of a play. It's a black comedy but some people consider it a horror. The director is William Friedkin, who directed The Exorcist. Anyhow, the film is about a 22-year-old man who finds himself in debt to a drug lord. He hires a hit man to kill his mother. This film is suppose to be like a modern-day, twisted fairy tale. Ahem. I guess we'll have to see about that.


Sadly, those are the only horrors coming out this month! No worries, horror will see better days, especially since I've been filming a movie of my own. Whoo hoo!

As always, Happy Horror!
