Trick 'r Treat

Trick ‘r Treat returns to Halloween Horror Nights – Don’t look now, but Sam is back at Universal theme parks this fall as the park has announced the return of a Trick ‘r Treat maze at the company’s annual Halloween Horror Nights event.

Based on Michael Dougherty’s cult classic film (pictured above), the new maze will open on September 14 and run through the holiday. Visitors will “experience some of the film’s most grisly scenes and encounter hauntingly familiar characters. They will meander through Mr. Kreeg’s infamous house, watch as college students viciously transform into bloodthirsty werewolves and dismember the town, as well as come face-to-face with Sam — the spirit of Halloween — who’s ready to punish those who break the holiday’s tradition.”

Trick ‘r Treat is the third maze to be revealed for the 2018 event. Six more will be announced in the months ahead.

Check out the trailer for the attraction.


Down a Dark Hall trailer takes us back to boarding school – Rodrigo Cortes (who gave us the claustrophobic chiller Buried) is back with an all-new tale of terror in Down a Dark Hall. We’ve got the first trailer for you today.

Here's the synopsis: "Five emotionally fragile teens are committed to Blackwood, a mysterious school for gifted girls. Mesmerized by the intense head mistress Madame Duret, they think they have found a place where they can finally flourish academically and artistically. The mystery deepens as they break through layer after layer of misdirection to discover the true, horrifying purpose of the school."


New Trailer for The Axiom debuts – Lots of news from Cannes recently, so it’s totally understandable if you missed this reveal of the trailer for The Axiom, a new, creepy little supernatural suspense film from director Nicholas Woods. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

According to the official synopsis, "a young woman risks her friends’ safety and travels into a national forest, in search for her missing sister. Once in the wilderness, they discover they have entered a multi-dimensional world full of monsters."

No details on a release date yet, but the trailer has definitely caught our eye.


Nightmare on Love Street revisits Freddy and Nancy’s tumultuous past – YouTuber Shawn Kohne has given us all a little gift this week with the release of his parody trailer A Nightmare on Love Street.

If the title didn’t give it away, Kohne’s clip is a reimagining of A Nightmare on Elm Street, re-envisioning the genre classic as a romantic comedy. Who knew Freddy and Nancy had this kind of chemistry?

While not every joke lands, more hit than miss, making this trailer one of the better ones we’ve seen since Must Love Jaws.


Horror on the Horizon

Guess what? The horror drought at the box office continues for the next two weeks. Seriously – it’s like a wasteland out there!

You can catch Solo: A Star Wars Story starting tomorrow (May 25), but if you’re looking for horror movies over the long holiday weekend, you’re going to have to look to Blu-ray.


Horror on Home Video

The week of May 29 is pretty light on new releases, but if you missed Annihilation in theaters (and judging by the box office, many of you did), you can now catch it on Blu-ray.

Things aren’t a whole lot better in the first week of June, unfortunately.

June 5 sees the release of The Devil’s Gate, which is not actually about the Devil or Hell, but is instead about aliens.

Eli Roth’s ill-advised Death Wish remake also debuts this week, as does IFC’s chiller The Midnight Man. Told you those pickings were slim…
