Fresh Blood: New Releases In the World of Horror

new movie news compiled by Steven M. Duarte

The Rite
Release date: Jan 28, 2011
Starring: Anthony Hopkins

We have another exorcism film but this time with Movie legend Anthony Hopkins. Let’s hope this film ends of being better than majority of the run of the mill exorcism films. Early buzz about the film has been positive so far which is usually a good sign.

Release date: Feb 4, 2011
Starring: Richard Roxburgh, Ioan Gruffudd, Rhys Wakefield

The film follows a group of skilled divers who take on the task of exploring one of the most dangerous cave systems ever known. There entry point is suddenly closed and they now have to find another way out. Kind of sounds like The Descent but without the cave creatures….. Hey at least James Cameron is putting his name all over it.

Vanishing on 7th Street
Release date: Feb 18, 2011
Starring: Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton, John Leguizamo, Jacob Latimore, Taylor Groothius

Attack of the Shadow People!!! Brad Anderson of "Session 9" and "The Machinist" tells the tale of a power outage in the city of Detroit. The only problem is people also start disappearing, and those still around, begin to notice the sun is coming up later and later. The survivors end up being stalked by what appears to be shadow people. Interesting concept, I’m curious to see if Anderson can pull this one off.
