I personally love horror movies and the very thought of watching one excites me to the core. I love watching them at home with my multi-room audio systems, it’s amazing! The best part is that in 2015, we will be having a lot of horror candies in our pockets.
Let’s make a list of the six most-awaited horror films of this year:
6. Paranormal Activity 5 – The Ghost Dimension
It is the sixth installment in the Paranormal Activity series. The film is scheduled for release on October 23. The film will follow supernatural occurrences that take place in a newly moved family’s home in Palo Alto, California. The family consists of four members including Ryan, a game developer, Ryan’s wife Emily, a stay-at-home mom described as “more serious than her young husband—she’s constantly on the go, does yoga, and though loving, has an air of maturity about her”, their 6-year old daughter Leila, described as “a fearless, opinionated tomboy”, and Ryan’s younger brother described as a “less fit, less funky version of his brother”.
Cooties is a 2014 American horror comedy film directed by Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott, written by Ian Brennan and Leigh Whannell. The film will be released on September 18. When a mysterious virus hits an isolated elementary school, transforming the kids into a feral swarm of mass savages, an unlikely hero must lead a motley band of teachers to fight for their lives.
4. Insidious: Chapter 3
Insidious: Chapter 3 is an upcoming American supernatural horror film written and directed by Leigh Whannell in his directional debut. It is a prequel to the first two films and the third installment in the Insidious film series. A prequel set before the haunting of the Lambert family that reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity. She comes to a new house and starts having visions which she thinks are about her dead mother but instead they are spirits which are trying to enter her body just like they do in the first and second chapter of the movie. Coming soon on 5th June.
3. Victor Frankenstein
Victor Frankenstein is based on contemporary adaptations of Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel Frankenstein directed by Paul McGuigan and written by Max Landis. Told from Igor’s perspective, we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Victor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man who created the legend we know today. Scheduled for release in October.
2. Sinister 2
Sinister 2 is directed by Ciaran Foy and written by Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill. It is a sequel to 2012 film Sinister. It stars Shannyn Sossamon and James Ransone reprising his role from the original film. Expected to be released in August.

It doesn’t end here. Early next year in 2016, there will be two more of this horror series…
Amityville: The Awakening
Amityville: The Reawakening is another supernatural horror film and the fourteenth installment in the Amityville saga. Belle, her little sister Juliet, and her comatose twin brother James move into a new house with their single mother Joan in order to save money to help pay for her brother’s expensive healthcare. But when strange phenomena begin to occur in the house, including the miraculous recovery of her brother and Belle’s increasingly horrifying nightmares, Belle begins to suspect her mother isn’t telling her everything and soon realizes they just moved into the infamous Amityville house.
31 is an upcoming horror movie written and directed by Rob Zombie, who raised funds via a crowd funding campaign. On October 30, 1975, five carnival workers were kidnapped and held hostage until the following night (Halloween), where they are put in a compound named “Murder World”. They’re told that they are there to take part in a game named “31” where the goal is to survive past the next 12 hours. This is made difficult by the fact that they are not alone in Murder World: a violent gang of evil clowns are there and stalking their every move.
Keep the bone chilling fever on!
