As the end of the year draws near, many websites and publications have been looking back on the best and worst movies of the 2013, as well as the biggest moneymakers and disasters of the year at the box office. Whatever’s been going on in mainstream Hollywood, in genre cinema one thing is clear: Horror is still going strong.
People often wonder why horror films have been so popular lately. One of the big reasons is they’re not expensive to make, which is music to Hollywood’s ears. It’s one big reason a lot of horror films glutted the market after the success of Halloween. When a movie costs $320,000, and makes back $40 million in 1978 money, that grabs people’s attention.
Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for its upcoming found footage flick, Paranormal Activity 4.
Having seen a trailer for The River with a lot of "scary" footage, and reading some early positive reviews for the pilot, I have a lot of hope for the series.
You must have seen it by now, a mysterious eye peering out at you in the dark through green leaves.
